Houston Happening and Lonni Rossi

I ran into Lonni Rossi at Quilt Market. She is a fabric designer among other things.   Her shop isn't far from my home.  I have been there a few times.  Lonni has always been friendly, gracious and generous.  But this time she exceeded all of my expectations. 

I was whining a bit that there was all this fabric at the convention center and none that I could go home with.  She said come with me.  We headed to the Andover booth and she asked one of the salesmen for a charm pack .  He didn't have any.  She asked person after person until she finally found one  and handed it to me.  I was pretty speechless that she went to all that trouble.  They are squares of her newest fabric line that will be in the quilt shops in the Spring.

My favorite
 So I had a little fun today and made a little quilt with all those 5" squares.  I have been interested in experimenting with the magic circle quilt pattern.  No batting, no quilting.  Fun!


  1. How wonderful that she found some for you and you made a beautiful piece with them, that really shows off the fabrics.


  2. OMG! I just LOVE what you did with those beautiful fabrics! How sweet of Lonni, I need to visit her shop. The squares remind me of those Cathedral Windows.

  3. Wow ! What a great little quilt! It is so alive! The fabric is incredible!


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you.
