Kansas City - Here We Come!

Packing up to leave for market early tomorrow morning.  It's great to finally be ready to go.  These last two weeks are really the hardest, I think, because I just want to get on the road.  Looking forward to seeing friends - old & new!

Coloring apron above the flowers,
child's & large coloring bags, purse
The weather here has been so wonderful so I snapped a digital of the new coloring bags & a purse & a coloring apron; kinda set up a little display out on the patio yesterday before I packed them all up.

Shop owners will purchase new samples of the coloring patterns for display in their shops.

You can also find these ready-made for sale on the website.

General Meade
NEW !! 
General Meade #5 in the Generals Series!

The Union Star block lends itself well to the Union General George Gordon Meade born in Spain on December 31, 1815.  His father was an agent for the United States Navy in Spain.

Meade was promoted to commander of the Army of the Potomac just three days before the battle of Gettysburg & commanded it until the end of the war. 

General Longstreet
General Longstreet

NEW !!
General Longstreet #6 in the Generals Series!

The Ohio Star block is done two ways with a flying geese sashing & cornerstones making a simple straight forward quilt for James Longstreet born in South Carolina in 1821.

After Stonewall Jackson's death at Chancellorsville, Longstreet became Lee's right-hand man; he remained a lifetime friend of both Lee & Grant. 

A friend of Civil War history Michelle McCamey helps us understand Longstreet as a man with these words "While Robert E. Lee was beloved by his solders, Longstreet loved his soldiers.  He really epitomizes the struggle of brothers taking up arms against brothers."   Longstreet was quoted "Why do men fight who were born to be brothers?" 

Take care, quilting friends, & have a great week & weekend!
