New Shops, Quilt Show and Other Musings

I recently was a vendor at the Blue Valley Quilt Guild Show in Lenexa, Kansas and shared a booth with a good friend, Susan Martin of Calico Quilt Designs. We had a terrific time both days and met a lot of great people. We even had our first snow flurries of the season!

Quilter's Paradise located in Baldwin City, Kansas was also a vendor at the show and has picked up "Cody's Flower Garden" to sell in their shop. Quilter's Paradise is a brick and mortar shop as well as an online store. They sell fabric, patterns, kits, notions and also have a longarm quilting business in their shop. If you are in the area, stop by and say "hi" to owner Sharon Vesecky. A link to their website is located in the left column.

L'il Red Hen Quilt Shop & More located in Paola, Kansas is the latest to retail my "Appli-Cake" pattern. Owner, Janna Renner, currently has "Appli-Cake" on display and has cut several kits in the tablerunner size for a quick Christmas gift. The kits are available in traditional Christmas reds and greens or beautiful blues, whites and grays. Samples of both tablerunners are also on display. The shop also houses gifts as well as your traditional quilting items.

Look for a new pattern soon to be introduced on the website. I am busy quilting it and will have the pattern written and the photo up as soon as possible.

Have a terrific Holiday season and happy quilting......Mindy Peterson
