Second of all, We are so very excited to announce our new
Fresh and Fancy Table Runner Club for 2010!
A fresh and fancy table runner for each and every month of the year. It is our fourth series (and of course our favorite so far). Each pattern has a Fancy side with more piecing and/or applique, and a Fresh side, simple and fast using the left over fabric from the front. It's like two table toppers in one pattern. Each runner is approximately 21" x 42". The perfect size for almost any table.
You can join a Fresh and Fancy Club at your local quilt store, or if there is not one in your area and you want to join online, head on over to Fat Quarter Shop to sign up. Kimberly and the gals have all the fabric kits and patterns to get you started.

Congratulations to the winner!!! Nanabarb!
"I love the whimsical nature of your block using the aqua and red. I can just imagine the fun a quilt made of Bloom Around blocks with red sashing!"
What a great idea! Make sure you check our blog next week.
You won't want to miss what's coming next!

This is the block I designed called Bloom Around (page 26, in case you are looking for it). I used Simple Abundance and red ric rac, and plenty of easy applique. Perfect if you love quick and easy applique, or if you are just getting started. I was thinking it would be so fun with a red border on it, or with contrasting corners even. So many different things you could do with it.

Congratulations to ....
Nicolestern - "I love the slice of charm....so very cute. as for the "old" pattern that's my favorite, it's not an old pattern at all. i haven't even made it yet since my quilt store hasn't got in the simple abundance line yet...but next week i'll be starting on abundantly blessed. "
I really wish I could send all of you something, I really do, but since that isn't possible I decided to do a limited time special Buy 2 get 1 pattern for free on my website for those of you who had your eye on something. Let me know which one you want for free in the comments section.

New patterns are here!
Slice of Charm is first up, a quick and fun charm pack pattern made from Simple Abundance charm squares. It uses soft edge applique, and is the perfect size for a table topper or baby quilt. Can you imaging this out of soft pinks and greens wrapped around a baby? Yum.
Piecing pillowcases is so much fun, especially when you are redecorating a bedroom or making a gift for a friend. The pattern includes all 4 designs. Choose your favoite fabric and start stitching away!
If you are looking for an easy quilt, this one is perfect for you. It measures 66" x 79" and uses the new Authentic line by Sweetwater.
And what better way to celebrate the new patterns ......than with my first giveaway! What exactly am I giving away? A copy of my new "Lots of Dots" book and a Polka Dot Pin cushion.

Thank you so much for the warm welcome to blogging! And thank you for all of your nice comments. I'm still trying to figure all of this out, but so far, it's been a lot of fun.
My sewing studio is a busy place! I just finished up these baby quilts, one for my neices baby boy (oh, he is so adorable!) and one for my new baby granddaughter that we will welcome tomorrow. Can't wait to see and snuggle her! I'll keep you posted.
Also, I am just about finished with a secret project for Camille out of Simple Abundance... better hurry...
It's a busy day!
