My Quip - Provence and Born This Way On Route To Cabarrus County, NC

Good morning and good afternoon,

We’ve been somewhat quiet these past few days, that is, quiet in the realm of our Quilts SB. It is not that we have forsaken our passion of quilt-making but... lightning strikes, a refrigerator catching fire, a new puppy, Radar, the addition to The Pack, and learning to sous-vide cook. (I’m still wondering if there is a verb to cooking à la sous vide... Sous-viding - pronounced sue-veeding.) We have been working diligently on a number of quilts.

Two quilts entries, Provence and Born This Way, hit the mail today. They are on their way to A Splash of Color Fiber Art & Quilt Show 2011, to take place this coming October 7th and 8th. The Show will be held at the Cabarrus Arena & Events Center in Concord, Cabarrus County, North Carolina.

Our NCBB Quilt, that is, North Carolina Blue Bargello Quilt, is off the rack. The quilting is done and the binding has been attached. This queen size quilt, soon to make its home in North Carolina is simply breath-taking. I will be writing a complete description upon final completion. Just wait until you see it.

We have received a new commission. This new Steps Quilt will be based on our award-winning quilt, Coral Steps. The fabrics for the top have been finalized. I am pleased to say that the two fabrics are just tremendous. And yes I did mention this in a previous Post, but we have changed the fabrics since that announcement... and if I may say for something that will blow you out of the water. (But then again I am a wee bit prejudiced.) And the final home for Steps Quilt will be New York.

A number of other new designs are in the make. Stay-tuned and keep checking our updates at Quilts SB.

Check out our current available quilts at Quilts SB Etsy.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual Grid presentation at the bottom of the Quilts SB page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow or in red, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.

If you are interested, and would like some more information of any available quilts, regarding costs, shipping, and insurance, please check our Quilts SB Etsy Shop.
