. . . errands can be fun!

. . . Well, they can be when your first stop (after Starbucks, of course) is a quilt shop!

One of the local quilt shops here in Tucson, The Quilt Basket, has been around since I started quilting - but I don't get there as often as I would like, because they are located on the east side of Tucson & I live in a town that northwest of Tucson. It means a forty (or so) minute drive - but yesterday, I decided that I am definitely going to make the trek more often.

Look what greeted me when I entered the shop!

It's my 'Celebration' fabrics made into Cyndi's (Stitch Studio) adorable cherry quilt from her book 'Spotlight On Scraps'! I do believe  I'm going to have make that quilt for my kitchen/breakfast area. . . Yep. I do think so!

They also had a wonderful little display/vignette featuring my 'Celebration' fabrics & some of my quilts. . . (don't you love the pink lunchbox & colander?!)

As if that weren't enough, they also had a wonderful, fun version of my 'Remember 'Who0o' Loves You' pattern made up. . .

. . . isn't it fun?! I just love to see what others do with my designs . . . ! It never fails to give me a little thrill. Which reminds me. . . if you have made one of my designs - I would love to see it!  You can email your photo to me at

Around here, I am waiting for the fabric bolts of my new fabric line, 'Georgia Lou' to arrive. Until then, I'm making a couple of new designs (& I'm having so much fun with them!) & getting myself back into the designing swing. (Finding out that my new line will be shown as soon as next month certainly has helped!) Also, the website got a bit of a new layout & so I'll be working on updating it from my side, as well.

Today, I get to have lunch with several cousins (that I wish all lived closer!) - so that will make for a great day for me!  Hope you have a wonderful day too!

Oh my... I LOVE the cherry quilt in your fabrics. How fun for you to see quilts with your fabrics. I can't imagine how that feels. The owl quilt is darling. I would have never thought to use those colors but it's wonderful!
