saving the best for last...

sarah and i were about to leave the convention center. we had exactly ten minutes to make it back to the hotel before we would be locked out of our room. the room with all our utah found treasures in it. i was pushing as fast as i could...until...

we rounded a corner and spotted this. how could i have missed this awesome display in our favorite colors? and then i realized it was amanda murphy's booth.  i pulled sarah in for a closer look...


and amanda herself turned around. i was star struck. i missed out on ordering her last collection, swiss chocolate. i luv that one...of course i do...there's that word...chocolate:) i ordered some from another shop i luv it so much. amanda was soooo sweet. she spent so much time with us. we learned all about her new sampler block of the month pattern...


which she has cleverly designed to be used as both stand alone projects or...


grouped together into this awesome sampler quilt. of course i luv this one too...purple:)


amanda has a new series of patterns she has designed. hopefully we can get them into the shop this week. now at the time i had no idea of this amazing connection...one of our good shop friends...mary of kwilt noob fame... has been testing patterns for amanda. and i got to see them in person last week. (why i did not take pictures is beyond me. i always get to talking and forget about the camera...until after the creations and their creators leave the store:( veranda. in two color ways...sorbet and garden...both just fabulous!!!
