Thank you to everyone who visited during the Kutztown Folk Festival, it was great to meet you! It was so much cooler than last year--the heat waited until this week. I do hope you are all keeping cool. A fabric salesman once told me the summer heat was a fabric store owner's friend, it chased everyone back inside to enjoy the air conditioning and thus to sew.
It has taken a while but we now have things sorted and ready for Quilt Odyssey next week in Hershey. Please be sure to stop by and bring your guild card or newsletter for a 10% discount on your purchases. The Quilt Odyssey show is always so nice and talk about air conditioning! We have received so many really great prints that I have not had time to list on line but they will be at the shows. There is nothing like being able to feel the fabric when making your purchase.
Carol Wilson has designed a quilt print alternating an eight point star and feathered wreath. Each block is about 12" square. You have seen her notecards and stationery, the quilt looks just like them.
This month's recipe (I use the word 'month' loosely) is for a summer desert the little one just loves. She actually requested it for her 18th birthday in place of a cake.
