CRAZY BUSY!

So I've been pretty quiet around here and I've had a good reason...I promise!!  I've been frantically working on a quilt that will be at Market in Salt Lake City this weekend!!  If you're going please take a photo of my quilt hanging up and email it to me! PLEASE :)

I'm a member of the St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild and two weeks ago a local fabric artist, Laura Gunn, contacted us and asked up to make a quilt with her new fabric line called Painters Canvas.  I was supposed to keep it quiet...until now!! WOO HOO...it's been hard to keep a secret from ya'll!  

Laura's fabric collections include Lantern Bloom, Poppy, Magnolia Lane and Painter's Canvas. Michael Miller Fabrics will be showing her new lines Magnolia Lane and Painter's Canvas at the International Quilt Market in less then three weeks. Laura contacted our guild and proposed a crazy idea. Would any of the STLMQG members be interested in making a modern quilt using her Painter's Canvas line. The quilts will be photographed, shown at market and later returned to the owner. Five of us took on the challenge to make a lap size quilt in two weeks (well more like 1 1/2 weeks we got the fabric last Saturday).
If you want to see what everyone else is doing check them out and give them some love too!

Also be sure and check out Laura Gunn's fabric collections and her blog and stop by the STLMQG blog too!


And PLEASE if you're going to market I would love you forever if you could take a photo for me!  :)  Thanks!





Hope ya'll are having a great week!!  Oh yes, and THANK YOU THANK YOU to my sister Rachel Hill for the awesome photos!!!  :)

Hey Jaime, this quilt was a big hit at Market. In fact, Keepsake Quilting wants to show it in their catalog. I'm not sure exactly what this entails, but they'd like your contact information. Shoot me an email. laura@lauragunn.com
