Catalina Quilting

Catalina Quilting in Tucson, AZ celebrated their Grand Opening this past weekend and invited us to come for a trunk show Saturday afternoon. What a great bunch. The shop is wonderful and bright and the owner, Betty, and her crew were so gracious to us and we really enjoyed our time there. All of her customers seem like loyal old friends...the way it should be in a quilt shop. We wish Betty and Catalina Quilting the best of luck and success in the future!

One of Betty's customers, KathyAnne, shared a photo with me of the birthday banner from my Poster Quilts with Patrick Lose book. I love what she did to personalize it. She quilted mini "name plates" to hang below the banner for the birthdays in her family. Thanks for a GREAT idea, KathyAnne. She was more than happy to share her idea with other quilters so here's the photo in case you'd like to do the same.

It's about 90 degrees here but the designing for Christmas of 2010 can't be held up by the desert heat. So...back to the drawing board (and to lower the thermostat) for now. Hope you're all well and happy!

Thanks for looking in on me ;-)

  1. Patrick,

    Great post. Love your birthday banner. Inspirational. I now want to make one. And I love the "name plate" idea.
