Spring Quilt Market Part 3

We stopped by Dawn Heese's booth -- Linen Closet Designs -- to see her new patterns.  One of them is a Folk Art Baltimore quilt -- we loved it and asked her to teach a block from it when she visits The Rabbit's Lair in July.  You can see more about her Market time on her Blog -- we'll have info about her new patterns next weekend at "Quilt Market Bash."   

Here is the block she will be teaching in her needleturn applique class -- "Pomegranates All Around"
The class will be on Saturday, July 7 from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm -- Click Here for details!

We found a new quilt designer from Canada that uses a lot of Jo Morton fabrics in her designs -- we think some of these will make great classes, and of course, wonderful quilts! This company is Prairie Quilt Mercantile. 

Also using Jo Morton fabrics in many of her designs is Clothesline Quilts.  We will be receiving a trunk show of 6 quilts from the Civil War General Series next week -- Be sure and stop in to see them!  Shown in "General Longstreet." 

If you love English Paper Piecing and simple applique, you'll love this design by Sue Daley of Patchwork with Busyfingers from Australia!  "Antique Sampler" will be worth the effort, and we're working on scheduling a workshop at a later date to get you started!  Here's Sue in front of her masterpiece quilt -- she says it took her only 6 weeks to complete this! 
Sue has a number of items designed for fun with hand work -- we'll also be showing you her template for making this sweet basket quilt! 
Much prettier in person (aren't they always?) is the "Mill Girls" block-of-the-month design hanging in the Marcus booth!  You can sign up for this now for shipping in the fall! 

Have a great Memorial Day weekend -- Our shops will be closed on Sunday and Monday.

Only Because of His Grace,
Mary Elizabeth
