Amy Butler Fabric Arrived Today!














Quilt Market was over just 10 days ago and already boxes of new fabrics, books, patterns and notions are arriving daily! Today the UPS man brought boxes from Westminster and Moda. Of course Sydney signed for them. Look at these Amy Butler fabrics! Aren't they delightful? Come in to see them. Liz has made a bunch of samples of her newest bag pattern---help us name it! She used this collection and more for her samples. I took one of the bags to market.
Today we also got a limited supply of the Better Homes & Gardens Complete Guide to Quilting. It is full of gorgeous quilts. The photos alone of each step of all the techniques are worth twice the price. This book is a bargain at $19.99 but with a $50 purchase you may buy the book at half price while they last. It's just one way we want to give back to all of you, our special friends. If you don't live near Scottie Dog Quilts you can shop on the website http://www.scottiedogquilts.com/....just put BH&G Quilting Guide in the special instructions box.

The rainy season has begun here in the Redwood Forest...We'll see rain most days until sometime the end of March or end of April. It rarely rains really hard....but it will be wet. The damp is what makes the mighty redwoods grow. We live in a beautiful place--on the Pacific Ocean midst the ancient Redwood Forest!

So beautiful! I love Amy Butler's fabric! I just got her "In Stitches" book. And the BH&G book is great. I bought that when I started quilting, and it was a huge help (although Liz's class here in MN last year was a bigger help).
