Alotta going on @ Paradiso!

It is officially Fall....which means that The International Quilt Market is just around the corner.....which means new patterns....& a bunch of other thanks for your patience...........but details are on the way!!
Here is a little of what is coming up!
I am finding that I am a lazy sewer.....I did not want to go hunt around for the zipper foot, so I just put it in with a regular sewing foot.
And you know...this works even better!!
So be on the look out to learn how to insert a zipper with a regular foot & score a cool, new Messenger Bag Pattern.  Details are coming soon!! will love the fabric I got to work with on this project!!
Love from Seattle,
