Fun times in the studio yesterday with Erica, Laura and Kara. Erica's baby boy is due in early September. "Grandma" Laura enjoyed watching the quilting process so she can put her quilt on the machine someday soon. Erica's friend, Kara, is a quilter who currently enjoys hand-quilting. Kara tried out her "continuous line" stitching to see what it is like to quilt on a long arm machine. All in all, a fun and productive day!

Tracey's college roommate, Theresa, picked up these prints called a Mola, in Panama, where her parents live. Her parents sailed to Panama years ago, and now have a home there. The mola is part of the traditional costume of Kuna women. Each mola has intricate handwork, with cut-away and applique. Now Theresa has a beautiful quilt to enjoy her favorite mola patterns.

Katey is graduating from high school in just a week or so. She selected these fabrics and we think it "looks just like her!" Classic, sporty, bright & young, and yet... that flash of girly-pink. That's our Katey! Congratulations Kates, we are proud of you!
