A quilt airing

Three things to be happy about:
(1) fresh breezes
(2) a song in the air
(3) free stuff

There's a new  phenomenon in my neighborhood, just 6 houses down the street from my house - Freedge!

When I first saw this "freedge" last month I thought it was something nice the home owner had done, but it's actually a free sharing space sponsored by Freedge.org.

I've seen items such as water, bread, cookies, yogurt and fresh fruit in there.  They're trying to go nationwide with this program, and the very first one in the DC area is on my street.

Go check it out!

I took two of my quilts for a stroll yesterday; I figured since I was going to be in Wheaton Plaza anyway, I'd see if I could get some "atmosphere" pictures.

Jasmine, a manager at DSW Shoes (my FAVORITE shoe store) very generously allowed me to pose my quilts in their store.  You can't see them in the picture but they had some really nice hats and bags for sale!

Same quilt, "X and Plus," in the pattern section at Joann Fabrics.

I like the way the colors in the books echo the colors in my quilt!

"Red and Black Passion" at Joann Fabrics!

I need to learn more clever ways to pose my quilts, but there you go!

I'm pleased to say I didn't buy one piece of fabric, tempting as some of them were!  On sale at 40% off, even!

That's it for now, I have a workshop today with Sandra, also known as Sistah Stitch a Lot - gonna learn how to make that portrait if it's the last thing I do!

Sew forth and sew on til later...


  1. The FREEDGE idea is cute. It looks like you had fun photographing the quilts too.

  2. I love both those quilts! Do you suppose the fabrics at JoAnn's now dream of ending up in pretty quilts, too?


Thanks so much for your comment, I like getting feedback! I can't promise to respond by email, but I do appreciate your visit.
