Happy Easter

The best way I can think of to spend this Easter weekend is with friends and family ... and of course FABRIC! I think all of the new fabric collections in the stores today are just amazingly beautiful. I love designing with them and I can't wait to get started this afternoon on a quilt design with the new Moda collection, Posh. If you have not seen this fabric yet you should have a look at your local quilt shop for it.
I'm so happy it comes in 5" charm squares because this collection is so beautiful it's almost too hard to cut up. Love it!!
Happy Easter everyone!

Summer Splash

Summer Splash is my new table runner pattern. It's designed with Mary Engelbreit's fabric collection Friends and Flowers. This pattern is quick to make and so much fun! In each pattern I include my homemade starch recipe and my easy machine appliqué technique. The finished size is 23" by 45".

Beautiful Blooms

I have a new quilt to show you called Beautiful Blooms. This winter several of my quilt designs have focused on flowers and blooms. We have had nothing but snow, snow and more snow for months. I am longing for green grass and Beautiful Blooms!


The Bunny Patch

Look who I found sleeping in "The Bunny Patch" this afternoon. What is it about Cats and Quilts? Rascal is my offical quilt snuggle tester. I adore that about him.
Rascal you are so sweet!

Wild Turkeys

We don't live on a turkey farm but if you came to visit you might wonder. Here are four of the flock of twenty-eight turkeys that we see on our property several times a week. They are so much fun to watch.
Amazingly, wild turkeys can fly!
