Snow in April!

Here's the We Be Jammin' quilt (a Quilt Soup pattern) all done and quilted.

And here is our snow from our last snow storm on Friday. It's a beautiful wonderland outside. So bright and sunny and white! I love it! I also love that I didn't see any deer tracks....they have found our home and like to come have dinner at our place. Grrrrrr. I wouldn't mind if we hadn't paid someone to design our yards.

Did I tell you who I met?

Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup! Oh Yes! I was excited! Barbara came to our LQS to do a class and trunk show. I was able to make it to the trunk show and was so glad I did! Aren't these quilts fabulous?! Barbara makes quilts with big applique blocks so they are quick and easy. My quilt, "We Be Jammin" is a Quilt Soup pattern. It's hard to tell from a pattern picture how beautiful or cute a quilt can be so I loved seeing the trunk show. Sad to say that Barbara's newer quilts were traveling without her to other shops but what we saw were "WOW!". I enjoyed hearing the stories behind each quilt she held up. It really made the quilt come alive when you heard her talk about how each quilt came to be. She also has a blog, you may enjoy reading. You can find it here. Enjoy! (I just wished I hadn't been sitting on the 3rd row with heads in the way!)

Nothing to do with quilting......

......but I have to share. Lots of us are either grammas or know someone who has a baby in diapers (maybe even you!). Here is a good deal if you need diapers. Go to this diaper site and look around. My dil usually gets her diapers at Costco but found these online prices to be very good. There is even FREE shipping if you order over a certain amount! When you are ready to checkout type TYSONSMOM in the promo code box and you will get ANOTHER $10 off your order!!! How great of a deal is that?! Pass it along to your friends who have babies!
