Happy Monday, and a GIVEAWAY!

Happy Monday, Friends.  I hope you are well.  I am still adjusting to my new normal…. and working lots!  If I have been scarce, please forgive me – it’s entirely me, and not you!

I am really excited about Windham’s Maribel fabrics shipping to shops!!!  Click here to view the fabrics.

I designed two quilts patterns using this line that are available for sale (hopefully) at your local quilt shop.  If not, you might ask them to contact Windham for details.  Alternatively, you may contact The Patchwork Co to purchase the patterns.

Here are the blocks I have made for the quilt — it will be a present for Miss Baby.


Giveaway:  To celebrate the launch, Windham Fabrics has generously sponsored another giveaway of a FQ bundle of Maribel fabrics to a US address!  Leave a comment on this thread between now and next Tuesday and answer the question: cat, dog, or neither.  Winner will be announced next week!


Thanks for playing along.  I hope you have a lovely week!!!  Hugs to you all.


FREE PATTERN: Pretty Little Houses

Hello Friends, Happy Monday!  I am so glad you are back for a visit.  Please allow me to thank you for all your kind comments for Nancy in my post about Nancy opening a quilt shop with her friend.  Click here if you missed the story.

A few months ago, I had the absolute pleasure playing and designing with some loud, bold but very colorful and happy fabrics from Benartex’s Tango fabric line. And Pretty Little Houses is the result.
