If you want to buy any of them, l will put your name on them and keep them aside for
you to collect over the weekend of Quilts In The Barn.
Jo will also sign them if you want.

And that means every cent!!

If loads more people want them, l will have Jo post me another box,
so please let me know in the next few days, or you will miss out.

This book, Coming Home, is full of wonderful projects.

This is Jo's most recent book, Banner Day.
Full of great ideas and projects, all 16 of them.

If its fabrics you are after, take a look here at The Quilted Crow's blog.
They have just had  a stack of boxes of Jo Morton fabric delivered,
and l have managed to convince them to bring them all over on the boat!! 
Leonie tells me they will have over 100 different Jo fabrics for sale!!!

 Many of the quilts in these books will be on display at the exhibit,
so you will get a first hand, closeup look at them.
This is going to be our best ever Quilts In The Barn.
