Hello Everyone,

I have to say, I was remiss in posting this thank you to the wonderful Barbara at Quilt Soup. I won a giveaway here at her blog. The winnings were a fat quarter of every fabric in her new Bubblegum Basics line.

Here are some photos...


All together, I just love them!! Bright, happy and cheerful all rolled into one!

So, Barbara, please don't be mad I am so late in thanking you for these wonderful fabrics. I just love them and can't wait to use them all up. You are a genius and I love your work!

Now onto a favorite quilt shop of mine. In my last post, I mentioned that I went shopping for my backing fabric with my friend Pam. Well, we went to one of my favorite quilt shops, Quilting By the Yard. Laura and Michelle own the shop. They are just some of the nicest, most creative and inspiring shop owners that I know. They have a wonderful shop chock full of fabulous fabrics. Here are some great photos.

Here you see Pam shopping for Batiks....

Laurie, works at the shop. She is a very talented quilter and teacher at the shop.

Another view...

Look at all the book and pattern inspiration....

So if you are ever in the area, this shop is a must see. Tell them that Jackie sent you.

On another note, if you would like to see an impeccably done wool and silk quilt, I just updated my gallery. So go check it out by clicking here.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. For those of you enjoying Memorial Day, have a great time at all the BBQ's and parades.

Until Next Time....
