Mulqueens is this crazy busy hive of activity. They sell and repair vacumes and sewing machines, irons, notions, rulers, patterns, long-arm supplies, fabric and 225 bolts of KONA SOLIDS. ( yes, they have every color) My Gammil Long-Arm was all out of sorts last June, and I took it in and they fixed it in a day and had me back to sewing so quick I didn't even get a break. Lol.
I sat by Pam and Ginger in the Houston Airport after Quilt Market and we were chatting about quilty things and Ginger said I know you. You come into Mulqueens and buy long-arm thread and needles and then it dawned on me how I knew them. Anyway, after chatting a bit about Quilt Market, the Quick Curve Ruler and the QCR patterns they said Mulqueens would probably want to carry them in their store where they both worked. So that is how simply this whole thing started and today I am taking in three shop samples.
I made Urban Chained, Urban Abacus and Deco Shimmer for their shop. They gave me the fabric and I used it at the Rusty Barn Show a few weeks ago as my demo samples which worked great because after three days I had all my blocks cut and pieced and I just had to square-up and assemble the rest of the quilt tops together. They are getting a flimsy of Urban Chained and Abacus, but I decided yesterday that I should quilt up Deco Shimmer since it is in Christmas fabrics and it should be displayed before this holiday season is over. I quilted an all-over holly vine and used my favorite holiday red striped fabric for binding.
