New Class/ New Quilt 1

Happy Voting Day all you fellow Americans! I hope each and every one of you vote today...even if it's just voting for your favorite ice cream! Speaking of, I know today will be an awesome day because......I was stuck behind the Blue Bell ice cream truck this morning on my way to work! I mean, he wasn't throwing any ice cream at me from out the back doors of this truck, but still...think of all the ice cream in there! Mmmmmmm!

Today, my Mom and I start a new quilting class today at the Quilt Sampler in Tulsa. It's a stained glass window piece called Dragonfly Garden by Three Swans Studios in Canada. They are the sweetest ladies....yes, I called Canada and spoke with them! I've always loved real stained glass windows, so what better way to love it more, than to make a quilt version! I'm so so so excited to learn how to make this! Love it!

Yes, I know...I need to post pictures of my Christmas log cabin quilt! It's finally got the binding on, so I'll post a pic of it soon!

Since THE hunter was out hunting in Kansas, my Mom, MY Hunter, and I went to Bixby last weekend to check out a quilt store that we had saw at the Claremore Quilt Show the weekend before. Log Cabin Quilts was soooooo cute! The store actually is in a log cabin and has the BEST stuff!

They didn't have as much fabric to choose from than say a bigger store in a bigger town like Tulsa, but the fabric they did have was 1) cheaper and 2) was a lot better fabric to choose from! I even found some Elm Creek Quilt fabric! Have you read those books yet? should! Anyways, we got all our fabric for the Dragonfly quilt and we had a great time. We might just go back this weekend too!

Have a great ice cream-filled day!

I voted in the real election but wish there was an ice cream election. CHOOSE BLUE BELL. We don't have it in Chicago and my life is only half lived.

I've voted today. Woot!
And it's too cold today for ice cream, silly girl. Ha!

Miss seeing you girls at PT!

Love the stained glass quilt!

That stained glass quilt is going to be great. I'm looking forward to seeing your version.

Quilt shops just call me by name - I swear they do! Your stained glass quilt pattern is beautiful and I know you'll love doing it. Some of the ladies in my guild have done them (I haven't..yet) and they're gorgeous! blessings, marlene
