THE WINTER BLUES AND FALL LEAVES ARE HERE!

All that cold weather in Florida kept Janice in the house last week.  It was a good thing too, because she had lots of sewing to do.  We designed and made two new quilts using Robert Kaufman fabrics.  They asked us to work with two lines of Batiks, not our usual, but we both love Batiks.

The patterns will be ready in about a month, but we wanted you to have a sneak peak.  The first one is with a line called Cornicopia.  We have named it SEPTEMBER MORN.  The colors are beatiful.  We updated a fall leave by using a pieced and raw-edged design. 

It just has FALL written all over it. 

The second one is just perfect for right now.  It is from a collection called Northwoods.  We named it WINTER WONDERLAND.

Don't you just want to cuddle up and stay warm with this icy tree and snowflake quilt.  I think it is the perfect "Winter Blues".

One last thing, check out our newest pattern that will be ready for sell on Monday.  It is called "HONEY PIE".

It was made using Lila Tueller's new collection, EDEN, from Moda.  The collection hits the stores this month.  The scalloped border and the three-dimensional, rag-edged flowers make it perfect for that little girl's room.

Check the website, http://www.abbeylanequilts.com/ next week for purchasing details.

Hope you have a great week and stay warm.  Janice and Marcea

Winter Wonderland is beautiful. So cool looking with all the blues. Yes Florida has been in freezing weather for the last two weeks, and it's hard to do anything :-( Glad someone was productive.

I visited your web site and was unable to navigate off of the home page. I clicked on everything - flowers, pictures, etc., but no luck. Finally, I googled your name and got the portfolio page (which is beautiful, by the way). These kinds of things don't usually stump me, but I am confused. If it is just me, then "never mind."

We have recently found out that if you use Mozilla Firefox as your internet provider, our website doesn't all show up. We are working on this problem. Thanks for the heads up Randy.
