Although I have been very busy, I took a little time to make a couple more samples. The first one is an envelope bag I had been thinking about for a while. It was really super easy. These batiks are great, and I could so see a sharp business woman carrying this with her charcoal power suit and her laptop shoulder bag!
And how cute is THIS!!! This is one of the bibs included in the pattern that has 4 one-cuter-than-the-next bibs!

Tommorrow and Friday I will demoing for Judy's Quilt and Sew at the Schaumburg Convention Center. It's a pretty good show, geared a bit more towards garment and home embroidery than the show at the Donald E in the spring. I will be in booth 514 so stop by and snicker at my Mr Microphone setup. Makes me feel like "Madonna"

I am going to be demoing product from 10-12 (and shopping) tomorrow (Nov. 7) at Tammy Tadd Designs in Sycamore. If you've never been there, GO! Tomorrow they are having a sample sale, with their fabulous samples that go out to all the stores starting at just $5! Talk about great timing for the holidays. See her shop and info here- http://www.tammytadddesigns.com/ . She was one of the shops featured in Quilt Sampler Mag, and rightly so! Hope to see you there! And say Hi! if you saw my blog!!!

Wow, there are some awesome quilters in that area! There were about 130 attendees to their meeting, and they really liked me (or so they said! I have no reason not to believe them, lol) And they were also very smart, because they bought alot of patterns and Texture Magic! Seriously, they actually bought more of my intermediate patterns, most places I go, they only want the easy stuff. So-you go! you Peoria area quilters!!! Quilt on!!!

I just finished this FAB sample for my trip to Peoria tomorrow. Although not the "cover fabric" I think any larger print with some movement is good. I followed the lines printed on the fabric with a layer of poly batting sandwiched between the Texture Magic and fabric and WOW! It is really interesting.
