Have you seen the details of Riley Blake Design's Fabric Fest in sunny Las Vegas, NV!?!    Fabric Fest is happening September 9-12, 2013 at the Southpoint Hotel, Casino & Spa (only 5 miles south of the famous Las Vegas strip!).

The ticket price includes accomodations, meals, classes, lectures, and make and takes!  Eleanor Burns is the scheduled Keyonte Speaker for Tuesday, Septemeber 10th, and Nancy Zieman on Wednesday, September 11th.  There are also a TON of classes/lectures to choose from, which are being taught by Amanda Herring, Amy Smart, Kim & Kris, and Lori Holt (just to name a few).

Swoon - Blocks #2 and #3

February 12, 2013

This past weekend proved to be a Swoon weekend, as I was able to finish 2 blocks (only 6 more to go!).  I love these blocks, especially with the fussy cut bouquet smack dab in the middle.  Seriously, could they get any more beautiful?  :)

Block #3 just may be my favorite to date. It might have something to do with the fact that I'm using the bouquet in turquoise print for the quilt backing, and the gray eyelet print for the binding.

I've been thinking a lot about Swoon possibilities, everything from holiday to everyday. Right now I have my eye on the Sweetcakes Hearts print (2nd row from the top) paired with pink/white/red solids. I think it would make a marvelous Valentine's Swoon quilt. Now I just have to find the fabric and the time!
