Can you start a blog with a P.S. at the beginning. We always seem to be working backwards but this is the finished top for andalucia earth, still will need to be quilted. Way to go Janice. check the design she achieved through fussy cutting. This quilt is amazing in person. We will have the pattern and great pictures next week.

While Janice is home slaving behind the sewing machine and quilting machine, I have been traveling the country. I started in a car saturday night in houston, on sunday I flew in a plane from albequerque to dallas to new orleans to orlando. Landed late sunday night. Janice and I blitzed through a thousand details monday, then i caught a plane monday at 5 pm to phoenix and then to salt Lake city. it was 25 degrees when i landed. This is the mountain i grew up on. My dad had 2 inches of snow on the lawn on sunday.

Now the good stuff, Janice is just about finished our second quilt using the new Basic Grey Fabrics. It is a fun, easy quilt that can be made in scraps or your favorite new fabrics. The pattern to this and all the other new quilts will be available next week on the website, just in time for market.

This quilt still gets a strip of red on top and bottom. I also took a close up so you could see how cool the piecing is. We used all 39 fabrics in the Basic Grey collection. This fabric will be available in November.

We told you about Patty Young, great new designer from Michael Miller. Janice almost has her second quilt done. The collection is called Andalucia Earth and the colors are very rich. This quilt is a piecing masterpiece, one reason Janice is doing the sewing. She loves the intricate work, did I tell you she is doing a Dear Jane. This quilt still has borders that will be put on it.

Ok here are the first borders. last one will be done and we will throw up a picture of it, too.

We are working very hard night and day to get everything done. I fly back to Houston this weekend and Janice flies into Houston Tuesday morning.

Here are two pictures of Patty's other quilt, "Miss Molly"

We will keep you updated with the sneak peaks.

The real thing will be on the website soon.

Have a great week.
