Hello all you quilty ladies!! This is our first blog posting and I'm going to slam it in, because I'm so stoked about this Spring's quilt offerings at market.

I just got back, after a wonderful few days at market, rooming with Mary Ellen Von Holt of Little Quilts and talking and eating until we were dazed. We had drinks with Alex Anderson and went to Moda's sunset dinner cruise on the Allegheny River with my friend Ro Gregg. (A truly spectacular event with all the grand high pooh bahs in attendance...Eleanor Burns at al).

Here's a quick high light of what is coming and what I think was all riveting!

I bought hundreds of patterns, especially a big group from Animas quilts centered around Christmas and we're going to kit at least a couple of those up. They are so rich and classic looking.

I also bought a group of Asian influence patterns that are large scale and fast and just stunning.

Lots of toys are coming! Quilter's toys that is! Fun gadgets and novelties you will have to see to understand.

Okay, I fell for everything yo-yo! Patterns, gadgets. They were all so cute!

A few of the major groups we have coming are:

American Retro from Windham Fabrics. Delft blue and rich red cherries, etc. Very fifties but in a rich palette.

All of the goofy Farmer John veggies

A wonderful Juvenile group from Janet Wecker Frisch , Mother Goosey

Flight of the Dancing Cranes from Northcott, Asian Fusion, mysterious and beautiful.

And of course lots lots more, but I'm so far behind (of course) I have to run!

Happy sewing!!

Thanks for the huge attendance at our birthday party. Hope you all liked your gifts as much as we loved seeing you.

Love from us all at Red Hen
