time for a little inspiration

Since my last post was so heart wrenching, I thought that I better keep it light this time. Are you ready for some quilts from the Long Beach quilt show?

First though I have to say that I met Lizzie B.

They had the best booth, it was bright and colorful and completely over-the-top, I could have spent all day there! I bought a pattern from them "Be Creative" and I am already working away on it. It will be a great addition to my new cubicle so that I don't have to stare at boring walls all day. Plus, since I will be in the creative dept. how much better could it be!

Also in her booth was Mary from Marin & Colusa. My mom has known her for years, and she is one of my very few followers!! It was great to get to see her demoing her new stitching lines. If you do a lot of half square triangles check them out... oh, don't forget to look at her patterns too.

The quilts were a little too improve and not enough piecing skills for my tastes, but the following quilts grabbed me enough to photo, so get a cup of cocoa, and sit back for your virtual quilt show.

Let me introduce us


Quilts with Flair is a collaboration between my mother, Marie Harper, and I. She is the visual inspiration for our quilts and I have the technical vision to make them a reality. We have 3 pattern packets right now, and are expanding our quilt patterns line and designing 3 new ones this year. As we make progress, we will be posting exciting little reveal pictures so check back often to see what is new.

Have a great day. And remember to be creative in everything you do!
