My Quip –Quilts In Progress – Holiday Sale and Discounts Continues


This past week and a number of few days was certainly a whirlwind… and rising up in the wee, wee hours of the frigid Tampa mornings certainly t’ain’t my expression or thought of living in the Sunshine State.

The Cypress Creek Quilters Guild Quilt Show As Your Garden Grows at the University of South Florida Botanical Gardens certainly was an experience. Hanging quilts in the trees, in the early hours of the morning, under the guidance of battery-operated light was never a thought that entered my head when I thought of taking up this hobby of quilting. It was different and an experience… I was enthralled with the level of organization and tenacity of the members who participated. Next Show will be in 2012.

Christmas is approaching very fast. The sale of Christmas and Holiday Quilts continues. You can see the now 14 available quilts at our Quilts SB Etsy On Sale site. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Four of our quilts have found new homes. White River Rafting has made its journey to Alabama with a final destination to Maine. Christmas Harlequin; Christmas Harlequin Classic; and Renaissance One all have found their ways to homes and collections in Delaware.

The top to our new quilt, OP Nöel I has been finished. If you want a mental picture of this new quilt of our OP Nöel Series, take a gander at the colors of Nöel Diptych and the design of AD I and that sort of gives you an essence of our new quilt. All-things-being-equal we will be repeating our basic design in another new quilt of blue, gold and white fabric, hopefully in time for the celebration of Hanukkah.

And the time does not stand still. I am working on a new commission which will incorporate the design of Beige Bargello and Christmas Cosine and the colors of the waves of the North Carolina seashore. Also there are the thoughts underway for the design and construction of a 100 Good Wishes Quilt.

The sun is rising. Tampa should hit 80 degrees today. Now that’s Florida.
