Quilt Festival, Fabric and Quilt Patterns

Well, my morning started off on a great note!  International Quilt Festival has just announced they are bringing a show back to Chicago!  I'm just tickled pink about this!  June, 2013 - I'll be there with bells on!  

You can read more about that announcement here:

Next up on exciting news - I think I've got it all figured out on my website now!  Many of you have asked for Instant Download style patterns from us.  I kind of drug my feet on this for awhile for many different reasons and I'm still not to sure if everything will run smoothly, but you can now shop on our website for instant downloadable quilting patterns for purchase!

Come test it out for me and make sure it's all working ok!

Click on the feathered star logo below to check this newest addition to our website out:

And lastly for today - I've uploaded the remaining fat quarter bundles in our inventory on our website.  There are a few good ones left at great prices!  Here's the link for those - just click on the fabric bundle!!

I'm off to hand applique for a little while and then it's on to the chiropractor for me today!  Have a great day!!!

Help Me Find This Pattern --- Please!!!

A couple years ago I bought this really cute sewing bag at a local quilt show.  Every time I take it somewhere with me - I get asked for the pattern or a source to purchase one finished. I would love to have this pattern to make a few of these for Christmas gifts and to share the source of such a pattern with you!

If you have any idea where to find this pattern - please leave me a comment!

A finish!!!

My Merry Go Round quilt is finished!!

The original quilt pattern for this quilt called Merry Go Round can be found in American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine February 2012 issue. It is designed by Kimberly Walus of the following blog www.bittybitsandpieces.blogspot.com

This week my daughter is away at summer camp.  This is a first for our family - my children have never been away from either my husband or I for very long and so far she seems to be doing really well and enjoying herself.  Here's what we got in the mail today:

Is that not sweet!

As for me - I'm glad to be done with the Merry Go Round quilt because now my design wall is freed up and I can move on to other fun new designs.

But for the rest of today, an old favorite hand stitching project is calling my name - if you need me, I'll be out on the back deck stitching away with a nice big glass of peach tea!
