It was a beautiful day in Dallas, Texas, and I spent the day learning from Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts, Roseann Kermes of Rosebud's Cottage, and Susan Fuquay of American Quilt Retailer. Let me tell you, their creative talent was inpiring! Doug played a sympathy card to win a new "Slice" - a cutting machine that is AMAZING! He wrote on his entry card, "I deserve to win the Slice because... since my wife won't let me use her scissors with the flowers on the handle, I am left with no way to cut my applique shapes." So, as if Doug doesn't get enough opportunities to get in touch with his feminine side by simply working at a Quilt Shop, he now owns a pink cutting machine! One of my favorite things about visiting Moda is their "lab", or their version of the perfect Quilt Shop. It is always decked out in adorable quilts, projects, and displays and inspires me to make my shop more beautiful. As soon as I get somewhere with a faster internet connection (this hotel internet is almost as fast as Morse Code), I will post a slide show for you to drool over!
