I am loving the new "Sew Cherry" line of fabric and Lori's new patterns. Nancy Murty too! And lastly simple pineapples.

I was pretty excited to score some "Sew Cherry" fabric at sample spree at market.  Lori Holt of Bee in my bonnet designed the fabric and the quilts in these next pictures.  Look at this awesome table topper.  I think my favorites in the line are the larger than life gingham.

Lori is famous for aprons and applique.  She had made lots of real aprons but I was having some trouble with batteries and missed the aprons.  If you want to see all the aprons Rae Ann at Cutie Pinwheel  has a post on them up today.  Visit her site to see the great fabric in them.

This pattern is called dishes I think.  Too cute.

This might be my favorite pattern.  How fun.

the fabric makes these look so happy.

Sorry I can't remember the name of this one, but isn't it a summery quilt.

this is the last one I have a picture of.  It is called cake walk.  Do any of you remember participating in a cake walk?  I do.

Nancy had a class at school house showing her darling patterns for babies.  She had an adorable lion quilt .
  Your could use each of these patterns on any quilt for baby.

How sweet is this?
then she began showing some of her other quilts.  They are beautiful.

Same pattern, two color ways.

the last thing I want to show you tonight,  are the pineapple quilts taught by Karin Hellaby.  Besides getting to listen to her musical english accent I was so excited to see her method to make "Sew Simple Pineapples"  I ordered her book tonight. 

I can't imagine how she was able to think up this method but it is facinating.  Don't you love the colors in this next quilt?

And this one

I hope you enjoyed this small tour of things I saw at market.  I still have tons more pictures. 

Enjoy Jan
