It’s Day 8 of our 10-day tour, and we’re not even jet-lagged!

Today we’ll head all the way west to land in Hollister, California, a great little town not far where I live.

There are some awesome quilters in Hollister, among them one of the most talented illustrators I’ve ever seen. Holly Mabutas of Eat Cake Graphics has a thriving rubber-stamp business in addition to being an appliqué designer with some of the cutest patterns in the business.

Holly and her gorgeous collie mix, Tucker.

Holly recently teamed up with quilting mystery writer Terri Thayer on a a unique eight-month web-based series that includes a block of the month plus a story of the month. How fun! It’s called Tales of the Quilt Shop.

Let’s go see what Holly has been up to in the Scrap-Appliqué Playground, and good luck in the drawing!

    I love Holly’s designs, they are so fun and the type of things I think about, but can never create. Love funny animal pieces, so I will have to go back and check out all of her patterns.
