We need to give a HUGE shout out to Northcott Fabrics - they graciously helped us with our Fabrics for this day!!

a GREAT show today. Have not seen such an exuberant star before! Is a pattern available? Looks as though I could use my scraps for that one.

Lots of fun quilts, but I really like that star quilt by Mary, it's very dynamic.
