An Exciting Day

The latest edition of American Patchwork and Quilting arrived in my mailbox today. I love getting this magazine. It has so many fun quilting ideas each time.

Back in about January or February I was in Broadbent's and a woman was there with her quilt. It was quilted and I think she was choosing binding fabric, but I don't
remember for sure. Anwyay, she said she was finishing the quilt to put in American Patchwork and Quilting and it would come out in June. I loved the quilt. As cute as it is in the picture, it was even cuter in person. Now I feel like I have met a famous quilt! She was even willing to give me a few applique tips!

I also loved this 30's quilt. I love 30's fabric and have tons of scraps from other 30's quilts I've finished. I keep finding new quilts to use them in. Now I want to do this one. I think I'd make the blocks 12 inches instead of 6 though.

Here are a few pictures of other 1930's quilts I've completed. I have another that needs to be quilted still.

I am also working on a double wedding ring out of 30's fabric.
