setting up my first trunk show

Unpacking bolt after bolt of yukata cotton at QuiltWorks NW tonight caught the attention of the store staff. They bought over ten yards before the show starts tomorrow!

I thought I’d need six tables to set out all my merchandise but there was only room for three. Remarkably, the set up worked just fine.

mom’s latests

My mom credits me with inspiring her to make her asymmetric black and white quilt. At 83, she admits that she has a hard time “coloring outside the lines.” Good work, Jane.
