A few weeks back I showed a sneak peek of my newest pattern. Here’s the whole deal:

I love blue, and I had five out of six of these blues in my stash! Usually I work with a mix of colors, and it was a very fun departure to do a monochromatic piece. I think the Ginger Jars would also look great done up in Oriental fabrics.

This weekend I’m off to Brentwood, California. It’s time for the Delta Quilters Guild show, and they’re having it at a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility, the Brentwood Community Center.

Sunday is our wedding anniversary (24 years!), and sweet DH Dana has decided to drive up to help me pack at the end of the show, and then we’ll have dinner. Anybody familiar with the area know of a nice casual place that has yummy food?

    As soon as I saw the pattern I though of my oriental fabrics. Happy Anniversary and many more.

    Those jars are lovely. My favorite colors. I never knew why they were called Ginger jars! And now I do! (duh?!)
    Congrats on your anniversary!
