We've been working feverishly to get all of the info & images together for Susan G Komen for a Cure & Quilts Inc. so that we can send everything off! Anyway.... that's the explanation for the test images we had on the last posting.......... sorry......... sort of left for the weekend & forgot to change it! We've had to figure out which images (lighter.... darker..... somewhere in the middle) would work best for printed materials & which for web viewing.
SO!! This is the front & back of the quilt..... finished, done, finis, YAHOO!!! Thanks for all of your comments! We'll have all of the info and links to Susan G Komen with how-to's about the "raffle" etc.... really soon!
Our newest designs will be ready to put up on the website by next monday, May 4th. We'll be sending out your email newsletters on friday (well....that's the plan!). If you're going to Spring International Quilt Market next month, our new stuff will be in the United Notions & Lecien booths so that you can see them in person.... Hope you like them!!

If you'd like to see one of the images of our Forget Me Not quilt for Susan G Komen for a cure you can visit the blog of our beautiful & generous photographer Sandy! You can see the quilt (& while you're there you have to browse through her galleries!) at http://www.summerlandphotography.com/ & click on "blog".
We should have the rest of the images early next week & will be able to send the quilt away to Quilts Inc. so that they can have it for display at Spring International Quilt Market in Pittsburgh PA next month! I'm SO excited that we're finally ready to finish all of this up & get it out "on the road"!!! We'll be able to send quilt images & individual block images to their designers as soon as we get them so that they can put them up on their blogs & websites etc.... Thank you, Thank YOU, THANK YOU ! to every one of you lovely ladies who contributed your time & talents!!!

Susan commented that I had confusing info about the Cosmo floss on the last post..... did I say it was overdyed???? What a dork I am!!! No! it's not overdyed & yes, it is colorfast. YIKES!!!
Oh,.... by the way,...... "he's" back. I should name that robin if he's going to be a permanent fixture. This morning his name was "#$%@^&*}# insane poopy bird" but I think I should probably come up with something else............... ?

I just spoke on the phone with Emma from Buttonberry in the UK. They're always so much fun to talk to, very nice ladies! I have to admit that we love the accent.... we've all said that even if they said "Your patterns are hideous & we detest all of you!" , it would still sound so sweet with that accent & their pretty voices! It's always lovely to hear from you Emma!
Oh!... thought I'd let you know that I've decided to carry Cosmo embroidery floss from Lecien. It's beautiful, colorfast, easy to work with floss that has a color palette comparable to DMC so it will be easy to use a conversion chart. We'll still carry Weeks Dye Works hand dyed floss too! It's SO GORGEOUS!! We're going to be ordering next week so we'll let you know when it arrives & we can get it up on the website!!
Happy Easter!! I hope you have all of your decorations up & that you get your eggs dyed on time for Easter morning!!!................... you know what??? Other than "Here comes Peter Cottontale, hopping down the bunny trail........" I can't think of any other Easter songs other than hymns! No, wait a minute................" Easter Parade". Know of any others?? Someone needs to write a song about that sugar coma you go into when you've had too many "peeps"! Been there, done that!! xox Meg
