And now back to your regularly scheduled quilt blog

Pictures from a Christmas open house last week at the shop where I work.
Complete with celebrities!
New bolts of Rouennerie and Astor Manor by Moda.
Yummy stuff.
These quilts come from a pattern company called Two Peas in a Pod.
Their quilts are wonderful!
Rae Ann (who was also there) has more pictures and information about them on her blog.Check out this adorable wreath made out of ric-rac!

In the blue is Bonnie Bailey. She and her mom,
Brenda, have Pie Plate Patterns and books.
Here is Lila Tueller, a designer for Moda.
She is a local gal - also lives in Orem, Utah.
Lila has amazing creations. Beautiful skirts and bags and fabric.
And she is such a lovely person.
And here is another celebrity: the actual dresden plate creations pictured in Kim Walus' Moda Bake Shop tutorial. They were even more darling in person. Kim is a regular at American Quilting, but let her creations stand in for herself that night as she was celebrating her husband's birthday. (Good choice, Kim. You were missed though.)
This is another one of Kim's MBS creations.

Fun stuff! Now I'm motivated to start all those handmade Christmas projects. :)

  3. Amy - I almost called you this morning for moral support. I needed to wash my giant scrap quilt and for some reason was afraid to do it. (Oh heavens, I need more sleep.) I washed it without hand-holding and it still looks great. Thanks for being my inspiration today.

  6. Hahahaha....when the first picture finally came up my first thought was yea, she's getting her sewing room together!:) Guess that's not your sewing room!:)

    Great pictures, our LQS was one of the top 4 stores nominated for small business of the year. They are having an open house on the
    13th to celebrate but I won't be able to go. I really need to visit them more but I spend too much when I do!:)

  11. Hi Amy!

    Looks like you work in an awesome shop! I don't know how you have any self control working around all of the fabric. If I worked there I am sure that my paycheck would be about 50 cents!

    Have a good weekend!
