FFT book signing...

Here I am with Karen and Marilyn.
My friend Karen already posted a picture of the 3 of us at the Fresh Fabric Treats book signing...but I wanted to make sure I kept a blog/journal of this as well.
It is a rare occasion that the 3 of us are together.
All original Ohio friends...we have to travel to South Carolina to meet up?
What's that all about? LOL
We had a blast catching up and buying FABRIC of course.
We are bad for each other..if one likes it then all 3 of us get it just in case.
It's been a cool way for me to expand my likes of fabric I would have never incorporated into a quilt or my stash.
I love those two :)
And here's a peek of my Make Life Wonky Nine Patch quilt top. This was made from the original wonky 9-patches that I used to test my pattern for the book.
 I have a third quilt started as well in French General and it resembles a picnic style quilt instead of a baby or toddler quilt.
The fabric really makes this quilt.
This pattern is versatile in that you could just use a layer cake of prints or mix prints and solids.
If you decide to make a project from Fresh Fabric Treats please join the Flickr group HERE and let us see what your fabric choices are!
I certainly look forward to seeing what you make.
