Morris Medley

I'm just back from a relaxing vacation in Michigan's UP. What a beautiful spot! We enjoyed a few nights of camping in the Porcupine Mountains, lots of hiking, some time in a cabin in Copper Harbor and a visit with friends in Wisconsin. We made a run up to Bayfield, WI and picked 10+ pounds of blueberries - yum!

There's lots happening in the shop. We're getting ready to send out supply lists for this fall's Mystery Weekend classes. They should be in the mail by Monday.

Our next project will be the final stage of organizing the Mystery by Mail kits for October. My sample of the quilt is laying on my ironing board waiting for binding. It's so beautiful, I wish I could include a photo here......but, it's a Mystery!

We've had some great new fabrics arriving in the shop. The latest is the long awaited "Morris Medley". This group of William Morris style prints are from the company Fabric Freedom, a British fabric company. They're distributed in this country through Benartex Fabrics. The grouping of 15 prints is made up of 5 different patterns, each in 3 colorways. We still have a few prints left from the Moda group "A Morris Garden" by Barbara Brackman. They'll coordinate beautifully!
