Yesterday I went to Material Girls Quilts, a darling shop in South Jordan, UT to visit my quilt! It was hanging right above the check-out counter, so I just had to get some photos. It was there because last week Carolee mailed it and the cute yellow Happy plaque that Georgana made and a couple of other projects to Material Girls so they could display them with the new ADORNit fabrics. (If you go to Material Girls this weekend for their winter openhouse, you wont see the quilt - unfortunately I had to take it and other projects because they're going to ADORNit's booth at the CHA tradeshow next week.)

Yes, that's the quilt I made out of the ADORNit fabrics that are shipping out to quilt shops all over the world right now. We used my quilt and a dozen other projects in a "pattern book" - a book we created to showcase the Vintage Groove fabric collection. I wrote most of the words and proofread the book - and since most of us that work there just happen to be sewers, we all made projects tor the book - quilts, an apron, a table runner, stuffed birds, and more. The photos are big and clear and the step-by-step instructions are excellent : )

Nadine, owner of Material Girls, has been wonderful to buy the complete line and put it right in the center of her store. I could have spent hours there - talk about eye candy. Nadine buys really yummy, modern fabric and she has adorable patterns and books everywhere! Our book - Vintage Groove - was sitting right above the fabrics.

She told me yesterday that the polka dots are everyone's favorites and are selling awesomely. I love the polka dots - used them in the centers of all of my quilt blocks.

It's just unbelievable to see those bolts and fat quarters sitting all together on the shelves. What I love most is that the quality of our fabric is the best. I walked around the whole shop just to feel the different lines of fabrics. I've always loved the feel of Moda - and ADORNit is just the same. Just really gorgeous quality.

This venture into the world of fabrics and quilting by Carolee, Georgana, and ADORNit is a wonderful story of following a dream, working hard, having art talent, being courageous, and being blessed with a little help from above. I would have never dared to try it, but I sure enjoyed watching the process unfold and come to fruition for them.
