A is for Annabelle Pattern Download

…. and the download is FREE at RJR’s website!  You remember a few months ago, I worked on a couple of projects using RJR‘s A is for Annabelle fabric collection (by Tasha Tudor).  These projects were displayed at the 2010 Houston Quilt Market.

1.  Tea with Me – click here to download pattern!

The majority of the blocks are the rail fence blocks, with the center either left blank or appliqued.

2.  Reaching for the Stars Growth Chart – click here to download pattern!

I just love the ribbon weaving effect on the stars using two contrasting fabrics, don’t you?

I hope you have loads of fun should you decide to make these projects.  Don’t forget to send me pictures of your completed projects!

Have a lovely day!

Annabelle’s Ring of Flowers: Sneak Peeks #1

This will be a short one because I am under the gun to get this quilt out by Thursday.  I am working on yet another A is for Annabelle project (fabrics by RJR):

You say there are no flowers – and you are right.  Those should be in the works by the time you read this post.  I need to get this quilt out so that I can work on some remaining homemade Christmas gifts!  Yes, sometimes I do think  I have a screw loose somewhere.

Will have more to show you later – including a music box I bought Miss Baby for Christmas.  I can post the pictures pre-Christmas because Miss Baby has yet to figure out how to snoop around for information she doesn’t need to know. :)  Now, do you have any interesting “Christmas gift snooping” stories to tell?  I would love to know so that I can be prepared.
