Lots of News

 I have so much to share with you!  First I received this lovely email:

I just wanted you to know that the fabric I won from your giveaway was used to make a beautiful quilt that will be donated to a lady who has MS and is in a nursing facility.  She wanted a quilt with birds and crosses, so several ladies from our group stitched the squares and our quilter finished it into a beautiful quilt.

Here is a picture of the quilt they made:

They are a fantastic generous group of ladies, please go and check out their blog World of Charity Stitching.  It is so great to see where my fabric ends up, and I couldn't be happier.   Thanks Peggy!

I am almost finished a really big project for Pellon.   Here is a sneak peek:

Trust me when I tell you not to even try and guess.   I will tell you by the end of February though.   

Lastly, here is my completely finished Rhythm and Blues


It is all my own hand dyed fabric except for the flowers.   I stamped the background as well.   The little circles on the right hand side are fabric covered buttons using the same fabric in the quilt.   The flowers are of course 3D.  Here is a side shot, so you can see how much they protrude from the quilt.

I have some more super fab news, but will share in my next post=)
Thanks for stopping by, I do appreciate all of you that take the time to read it!

I can't stand the suspense!!! This is going to keep me awake tonight. LOL
I'm so glad you showed the finished R&B quilt. It's wonderful! I love the picture that shows the quilting pattern, too. :)

the photo of the quilt straight on definately hides the dimensionality. I love the way the 'quilted leaves'? curl around! And I, for just an instant did try to guess what that project is, until I read the line that says not to try -- so my patience gene has kicked in and I will try to wait for the 'announcement'.
