lucky penny, lucky me.

 

Just a little over a year ago was when I first met Alison Glass. We were both at Quilt Market in Houston for the first time and showing off our stuff. And now, a year later, I’m thrilled to see her first fabric line, Lucky Penny, with Andover Fabrics. The collection is totally rich and beautiful, and I can’t wait to start sewing with it.

Here’s a shot of one of quilts in the Andover booth. I’m totally making some clothes with that big print in the border.

And then a very special surprise was seeing how she incorporated some of my stamped fabric into another one of her quilts! See if you can spot my cameo.

 

 

Here’s a better picture of her and her quilt in my booth. The quilting was stunning.

And the binding on this quilt is just about the softest thing ever. She used some chartreuse silk radiance from Robert Kaufman–such a good idea.

Congrats, Alison on your fabulous new line! I’m so happy to finally have some.

Small Business Saturday.

Aerial quilt, carolyn friedlander

I do love local.

And of all the promotional holidays we have going on right now, this is one that I’m happy to partake of.

My mom, sister, and I will be venturing off to our local, independent kitchen shop, which is always a great time.  And I think we’ll also be able to catch the Lake Wales Farmers’ Market, which means a visit to my favorite–the Guacamole Guy.

Yummy.

Here are some other great places to shop.

Happy Small Business Saturday!

It’s always really fun to see what others make from my patterns!

Thanks so much to OMQG for having me (and for the nice post! ). You guys are great.

 

With that, I think I’ll start the holiday weekend off a little early this afternoon with some sewing. This clutch has been on my mind. BIG time.

 

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
