Getting Ready for Spring Market

I've been sewing sample blocks like mad for Spring Market in Salt Lake City next week. These are all cotton and aimed at the sane quilters out there...but I've snuck in a tiny bit of trim here and there, just to show that you CAN add a few fun elements to the mix of a cotton quilt...

However, my next project for Market will allow me to step through the looking glass into bona fide crazy quilting again with this pattern. I'm making a pillow for RiverSilks, showcasing their silk ribbon. I have to admit, it will be great to use silk again!
It will also be fun to show an example of how this pattern can be adapted to curves...
Stay tuned!

When a day appears as the day of happiness, suddenly turns into a completely different story. Nobody expected death on the day of love, but “Bloody Valentine” has made everyone stunned with this expected. Life has really its own pathway, indeed. That’s the one “Bloody Valentine” describes.
