I'll try and take my camera to the shop in the next or so and take a picture of some of the new quilt models that the girls have all been working on...
Janet Bowling made an AWESOME quilt using the new Diamond Textiles that we now carry....kits are being cut for that now!
Jan Richards has put together one of Carol Hopkin's new patterns, "Crossroads", using the exact fabrics from Marcus Bros. line, "Enduring Legacies".
As soon as we get back in some of the  bolts we have run out of, we'll be putting this kit back together as well!

very pretty and pastel...works in beautifully with a couple of her older lines,  "Amelia" and "Sweet Emilee"!
