I am so jealous. Both Freddy Moran AND Ikea. Sigh....I miss Ikea.

I remember attending a Freddie trunk show and talk at the Marin County Quilt show, probably 10 years ago. She said then that she bought the Marimekko fabric on sale at the Crate & Barrel Outlet store in Berkeley. I wonder if it's still there?

That Silly Lil' Doe - How sweet is she!

OMG! I love those quilts!!! Love those colors!!! I can hardly wait to see what you create with your new machine! congrats!

Glad you like the gifties. So happy you got the package just in time for Valentine's. Hope you had a wonderful day.

Love your new banner.

OMG, that lady is amazing!!! I wish I could have been there to meet her, enjoy her quilts and drool over her fabric collection.

The chair is stinken' ADORABLE!!!!

Wow, that is sooo exciting that you got to take a class with Freddy Moran, to meet her and see her quilts in person. I'm extremely thrilled to hear she has another book coming out with Gwen Marston - woohoo. Good luck with your quilt.

Nice seeing you have so much quality time with your Mom. Looks like you are living the fun life Jen!

hi jen - i just recently discovered your blog and i LOVE it -- oh you lucky duck, a class with Freddy would be my idea of heaven -her first book, Freddy's House literally changed my quilting life!! and the fabrics you got at IKEA are making my mouth water - an IKEA is opening up less than 10 minutes from my house in less than 3 weeks - i can hardly wait-- good luck with your quilt --


The quilts are amazing! So exciting to look at. Can't wait to hear/see more. Susan

I also think that IKEA is the bomb. I moved from California to the mid-west and the closest IKEA is about 6 to 7 hours away. BUT, we still try to make the trip as often as we can.

I love the new banner.

The chair looks great! I didn't make it in time to enter the pillowcase contest. Ikea has some great bargains & designs - I like to get their frames for the kids room since they don't have glass in them...we also have a few Ikea pieces, like my bed & entertainment center.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the new blog header!

Wow! Those quilts are AMAZING! I'm so in awe of quiltmaking. I would never have the patience to do it. But to see some of the works of art that are created blows my mind! the chair...cute!!!

LOL! about the signature dish! OK-I'll settle for something that you LIKE to bring! Just put something down! I know you guys eat! LOL!

Yeah-the kid's book club is really great. I promise you'll have one of the strongest reader's in the class. My kid's do amazingly well in language arts. OK-their mom is a word nerd that has pushed vocabulary on them from day one, but the book club is a HUGE influence on them too! Have a great weekend!

Those quilts are delicious and inspiring! I have looked at that Ikea fabric so many times and never once thought of using it for quilts. Brilliant!

Jen, welcome home! Your story about Freddy Moran is so inspiring. I've been a quilter for 30 years, with so many quilts in progress but very few finished. Freddy gives me hope. Maybe I still have time to get it together!

I love Ikea. I've bought those little scissors. They are great for paper projects and you can't beat the price.
Love your pillow case on the chair and the Freddy quilts. Whoa those are bright.
Isnt that silly lil Doe the sweetest. I love those little paper hearts she made. Maybe I can bribe her into sending one my way!!! She's amazing!!!
Glad you had a good time with your mom!

Hi Jen! I just love your chair cover!! Im going to post my creation tommorrow i guess since its over!!!Whoo Hoo! Loving that swell fabric!

Wow, you are so lucky!! I absolutely love the picture of you and Freddy. The quilts that are behind you are to die for....what eye candy!!

I can't wait to see yours and your mother's quilts. Do you know what the new book is titled?

So glad you found IKEA. Don't they have some wonderful fabrics at great prices??

Ha ha, IKEA needs to come with a major warning label :) Those quilts are gorgeous, and you are bound to make amazing things with that cute fabric - so fun!

omg! all of the fabrics are glorious!!!
hope you had a great valentines day!

Love the quilts, they are beautiful. My Mom is an avid quilter, she will the pics~

Love the new banner. Love the quilts. I had a chance to see Freddy's house on a studio tour a couple of years ago, really lovely.

Can't wait to see your quilt! Glad you had fun.

P.S. Your new banner is way cool.

Wow, what a time you had! Freddy sure looks good for 77!!! And those fabrics are great! Didn't I tell you Ikea would be da bomb!
