Minnesota Bound

A little announcement! Ron and I will be relocating Reproduction Fabrics.com to Northfield, MN some time this summer. We have leased retail space in the First National Bank Building....right on the downtown square. The move is inspired by the historic town of Northfield plus the proximity of our daughter, son-in-law and three little grandsons in the Minneapolis area.

Bus man's Holiday

I recently spent a week in Minneapolis caring care for my youngest grandson while the rest of the family went on Spring Break. One day I went to lunch with a friend there...and then onto the Flower Show at Macy's. What a delight. Susan told me I would smell the flowers once we got off the elevator...and she was so right! The 'layout' of the flowers/shrubs was wonderful and it was being enjoyed by multiple generations. Very nice.

We then visited Glad Creations. It is always good, as a shop owner, to visit other stores. I got a chance to met Nancy, learn about their line of patterns (see Union Star) and see some of her mother's quilts. So...a Bus man's Holiday. The tricky part was explaining this term to the Spanish speaking exchange teacher staying with my daughter!

Peanut Butter and Honey

I am working on 2 Halloween quilts for my older grandsons. The first one is finished and will hang in the store all summer. Now...can I keep working on the second one?

Gathering the fabrics has been fun. We have FQ bundles of blacks (Licorice) and oranges (Honey) as well as a great background (#MF214F). I am going to use a flannel plaid (each different) for the backing. The pattern is by Painted Pony.
