Hi !
We've been so busy in the last couple of weeks with the patterns we just released ( Thank You!!!! I'm so happy that everyone likes them! ) and getting the newest designs finished & ready for the pattern writing & checking process. We've finished all of the embroidery on the two newest quilts & I've spent this week trimming..... geez, I love that freezer paper!!..... and sewing. Vintage Trick or Treat is completed & ready for the quilter! YAHOO!!! This is a picture of it on the design wall before it was sewn together etc.... I'm SO in love with this one!!! It's just so happy!Today I'm going to sew together our snowman alphabet quilt's center & get it ready to stitch a fly stitch over all the seam lines. We really need a name for this one.................. hmmmmm..... I should show it to you after it's sewn together & maybe one of you could come up with a good name for it?????? Oooooooooo........... that's a GOOD IDEA!!!!! That's what we'll do!

As soon as the snowman ABC quilt is sewn together I'm going to start putting together our Forget Me Not quilt for the Susan G Komen Foundation. Have I told you about that yet??? We've asked designers from the US & Australia to design blocks for a quilt that we'll put together & will be donating to the Susan G Komen Foundation for breast cancer research. You will be able to go to their website or follow a link from ours (or many others!) & buy a chance to win it.... with all of the proceeds going to them of course. We received fabric from many fabric companies, supplies from many others.... and the blocks from the lovely ladies who design patterns & fabric lines that everyone loves!!! I'M SO EXCITED!!!! I'll show you my block now. The next one is Brenda Riddle's........... beautiful! It's one of my fav's! The next one is Alex Anderson's................. NO!!!! I'm not name dropping!!!!! Why can't I put mine & Brenda's next to Alex Anderson's???? At least I didn't put up Marie Osmond's......... Yup!, we've got HER too! Well, maybe I will put hers up... & a few more too! Keep in mind that they're not trimmed or pressed or anything. Their signature blocks are in the photo too (they're going to be made up as signature blocks & will make up the back of the quilt.... two sided..... how cool is THAT going to be???? What the heck, I'll put up several of them. Have a nice weekend!

How exciting is the Breast Cancer Quilt!! All very lovely blocks. Would the applique block be a Red Brolly - Bronwy Hayes? Looks as if it could be!

I'm in awe of the blocks. Just in awe. Amazing. So much talent and love in them. WOW! And that little acorns... she ALWAYS takes my breath away... love that Bren. Between Crabapple Hill and Little Acorns... you guys keep me in the happy floss of things!

I adore your Vintage Trick or Treat, and can't wait to see your Snowman Alphabet - I know I'm gonna love that too (I married a real life snowman, so all the more I'm going to want to make it). A good name? My pick is "Snowphabet". :o)
