Wow! If you're close enough to see this exhibit in New York City, you're very lucky!
Check out Martha Stewart's blog -- wonderful pictures of the quilts -- be sure to look at them all. We especially like the redwork quilts -- love that embroidery work.

We're getting ready to start our Online Jo's Little Women Club, Part 10. We've had 2 groups meeting in the shop, but we know that some of you don't have a local shop that offers this wonderful program for using Jo Morton fabrics in her designs.
The club will run from March through November this year, making 8 small quilts. Each month you receive a pattern in the mail, along with a newsletter all about Jo and her designs -- find out more about it on the website -- Jo's Little Women Club 10 Online.
Only members of the club can receive these patterns, and order the optional kits. Plus, members receive a 10% discount on all online orders.
