Checking in…

Just came back from a trip, DH had to attend a workshop in San Francisco area, so I tagged along. While he was in the meeting, I went craft shopping~ Actually I didn’t get anything cause I’m trying to keep my “no new stash until finishing my WIPs” promise… It wasn’t easy!! All the beautiful fabrics and charts were just calling my name!!! Nevertheless, it was really nice to be surrounded with fabrics and all sorts of crafts!!! Before I know it, I was already in one store for more then 2 hours!!!

I do have a question for all you crafty friends. I saw this quilt in one of the stores and fell in love completely. I do know that this pattern is American Jane’s Magic Carpet, but I’m wondering if anyone recognizes the fabric? I love this combination and was hoping to make one myself. So if anyone knows who the designer or company these fabric is from, please let me know. Thank you so much!!!


I’ve never been in San Francisco during spring, and it is soooo beautiful!!!!! Sun is shining, flowers blooming. Here is just a little taste from our wonderful trip!!

  1. I can't tell you what fabrics those are but the quilt is lovely!

    Your pictures of San Francisco are great and it looks like you had a great time, congratulations :)

  2. Oh Teresa, you should have let me know you were coming to SF, I'd have loved to meet you. I'm glad you enjoyed the visit to SF and that you missed the rain (as I listen to it hitting my window).

    Sorry...I can't help with the quilt.

  3. I totally love that fabric combination and I'm not even a quilter. If you get your answer, can you post it on your blog? I'd love to know, too.

  4. Looks like a great trip to SF with weather cooperating too!

    That is a beautiful quilt. Hope you can find the fabrics or something similar.

  5. Hi Theresa
