I had a sweet surprise in the virtual mailbox this week: the lovely people at Hoffman Fabrics choose my Mousetrap pattern to show off their latest Tropicals and Conversationals prints, and sent me this image of their quilt. Love the aloha spirit! And check out the surfboard print!
And here’s a tidbit of trivia for you… did you know that Hoffman designed fabric for Tom Selleck’s shirts in Magnum PI?
Whew! Now that your 80’s flashback is over (or is it an 80’s hot flash?!)…
The quilt is heading to AQS in Paducah at the end of April to hang at the Hancocks of Paducah fabric store (if you’ve never been in there its well worth a visit). It might also make an appearance at Spring Quilt Market in Portland in May.
If you happen to see the quilt, get someone to snap a shot of you with it and send it to me, OK? Mahalo!
