A door closed the last Saturday of September. A door I have passed through for 20 years, the quilt shop where I have worked and taught, owned for while, laughed and cried, and built some of the most cherished relationships of my life. It began as Nostalgia in 1993. Then a new owner changed the name to Abram House Quilt Shop in 1997. I bought it in 2002, and for health reasons, sold the shop after 9 short months and it became Lone Star House of Quilts. The shop, its customers and its place in my life will be missed. Many years of Memories remain.
As I look for a place to teach my club, I'm certainly not lacking things to do! Quilt Market in Houston is a few short weeks away. I'm busy with market samples for the next line, Lizzie's Legacy for Moda. Named after and inspired by the rich quilting history my great great grandmother Lizzie Carpenter wrote of in her journals. Once again, an antique quilt from my collection, provided the prints for reproduction.
Patterns to write for market quilts. Quilts to design, and make for upcoming books
I recently gave a program for the Edmond Quilt Guild on Just Treats, No Tricks. What fun! And a fun group of ladies. Did you see my post on Instagram or Facebook? Here it is in case you missed it. You do follow me there right?
But for now, back to sewing!
Have you found the Quiltmania issue? They are available now. Will post about Eliza's Indigo next post.
Ok, now you can't find me at Lone Star any more...but you can here, Instagram and on Facebook.
I'm looking forward to opening another door, to continue my club and teaching. But until then, Sew many ideas, sew much to do!
Until next time,
