PA Quilt Show & a Book Release

Today is an exciting day!  At 10 AM this morning the doors open for the PENNSYLVANIA NATIONAL QUILT EXTRAVAGANZA XXIt will be exciting to see all the quilts, wall-hangings and wear-able & textile arts.

It is overwhelming to see the detail & work that has gone into all these items, many of which took months to make. 

Also, at the Quilt Show there is a Vendor’s Mall. There is a wide variety of items to check out and buy!  Fabric, Notions, Sewing & Long-Arm (Quilting) Machines, Cabinets, Finished Items, and more!  There are vendors from all over the country and you get a chance to see more than just your local shops.  Sometimes, I get to visit with some shops that are near where I live, but don’t always get to see.Quick'n Easy 3-Yard Quilts

I have the privilege to visit with some friends – Donna & Robert from Fabric Café in Tyler, Texas.  They have some exciting news – the release of their new book – “Quick ‘n Easy 3-Yard Quilts” with 8 new patterns!  I’ve been helping by pattern testing, making models, and proofing the book as it came together.

It has been both exciting and frustrating – You know how hard it is to keep a secret!  I got to make some tops and wasn’t able to show ‘n tell them!  Now I get to show them!  Show here they are!

Picture Perfect:

  1. Hi Mary Ellen,
    You are so sneaky! And I thought I knew about all the quilts you are working on. That’s why you are such a good friend–because you can keep such good secrets! Congrats to Donna on publication of her new book. I know she’s been working hard on it and you have been working hard testing for her. Now all that hard work has paid off.
