It's Happening............

New Patterns - are finally here!  

One can only wonder why a quilt called Spring Bloomers doesn't have pieced and/or appliqued flowers in it.....but  that's not what this fun quilt is all about.  You'll have to read the story to find out
why it's named what it is.  PPL096 SPRING BLOOMERS can now be found on the website on the pattern page.

A favorite time of year for me, FALL, means harvest and a social event that usually takes place.
PPL097 HARVEST SOCIAL can also be found on the website.   Use up those scraps we all have the need to save's your chance to put a hurtin' on them.

The latest newsletter went out this week and for those of you not on the email list here's some fun stuff you might want to be included in.

In the Primitive Quilts and Projects Summer 2014 magazine issue......My granddaughter, Sarah, and I designed a fun piece called "4 THE BIRDS"  If you don't have a subscription to that magazine you might want to run on over to their site and sign up.   I have an extra copy of the magazine, which I will be giving away........IF YOU ARE SIGNED UP TO BE ON MY EMAIL LIST AND YOU RESPOND TO THIS NOTICE.........your name will go into the hat for a free copy!   Deadline to respond is May 30th

I've been asked to do another summer sew in project.  Last year's project was the wool penny rug shown below.  Sign up before May 30th to get in on this year's project.  I will be sending out a pdf file packet to everyone that wants to play.  PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE if this summer isn't good for you, don't sign up.  Everyone will have only 1 week to complete a section and pass it along....and, at the end of the summer everyone's name will go into the bucket.  There will only be one winner. 

The Wedding Day quilt was a big success in the Primitive Quilts and Projects Magazine last year.
I you haven't already made your own, here is a source for the background fabrics in a kit.  Her kit consists of lights and darks for the background.  


                                         Kit source
Bonnie from Willow Wood Market Quilt Shop in Bemidji, MN is offering the fabrics for the background in a kit.  

She also sells wool if your stash is small.  Give her a holler if you need the background fabrics.  As you can see in the picture, her background is both light/dark.  


I don't stock pile wool, but do have scrap bags that work perfectly for this quilt.   If you are interested, please email me to see what's available and the price.  Thanks!

Happy Memorial Day to everyone!  I hope you have a very fun beginning of summer with an outdoor picnic!  Until next time, Lynda
