Hello Friends, thank you for stopping by again!  I received an anonymous comment on my post yesterdayand I thought I would quickly answer the question here:

Me: Why, thank you!  No, I didn’t attend Paducah this year.  Actually, I never have.  Maybe one day…. when I think my work is display-worthy.  Right now, I think I have a long way to go on the display-worth road. :)  Quilting keeps me learning.


A few weeks ago, I had alerted you about my Shimmering Constellation making the final round of Benartex Fan Favorite Contest this year.  Well, I am excited to share with you that Shimmering Constellation did win! :)

You can still download the free to use pattern instructions here.

I haven’t played with Benartex fabrics much this year.  So, I am not sure if you will end up seeing my designs in next year’s Fan Favorite contest, but I have enjoyed being part of the past years’ contests.


This year’s Benartex Fan Favorite is another win for Sawtooth Star blocks – my favorite star block! :)  And to that, I say YAY with a capital Y!

Thanks for stopping by.  I will catch up with you tomorrow.
