Good to be home.....

... after 7 weeks of wonderful travels.  And even nicer to spend yesterday with the 'Sisters', albeit minus Barb and Clare.  I /we missed you both.  

While I have been gone, Ann has been very productive.  She has finished the top of Di's beautiful pattern, Antique Wedding Sampler Revisited. It is just gorgeous - and looks even better 'in the flesh'.

In addition, Ann is very busy working on a quilt, Hooterville from Material Obsession, for a special little girl.  The applique is almost done, and now the fun part, the embellishment, begins.

Kerry is in a finishing phase, and today was working on 'The Grove Documentation" - a quilt that Di offered as a border of the month when Primarily Patchwork was open.  I am not sure how many borders in total, but here is what has been completed so far.

And finally, a couple of photos of two pieces of beautiful antique chintz that Di bought from Mary Koval when she was here for Quilts in the Barn earlier this month.

This pillar print is just stunning - Di already has an image in her head of the quilt she is going to design and make using it. And don't you just love the greyhounds on this print - so English county!

Di bought all of the pillar print fabric that Mary had but there are some of the greyhounds still available.
I know that I am in the throes of fabric envy - what about you?

Until next time,
