Power shopping at Dallas Quilt Show
The day before leaving for Dallas Quilt Show my new book Out of the Box, by Mary Lou Weidman, arrived. What an inspiration!!! I only had a few hours at the show so I - POWER SHOPPED- (learned from many years of buying at market in Dallas and Highpoint N. C. for a store I used to work for.) The bright multi colored squiggley stripe was my inspiration fabric. This will of course be a long process for my story quilt. My theme is a view of my secret garden from my favorite chair on my porch!. The Mary Englebreit fabric has many garden signs that I will use on garden stakes throughout the quilt. My creativity is flowing and my 5 yr old grandson Alex has already requested several things to be added, this will be lots of fun!!!
