Better Weather and NEW Windham Sampler II

It is so beautiful outside today!  What a super day! 
I have the front door open & am enjoying the sunshine streaming in; we have waited for this for months!  72 degrees!  That is awesome after snow & ice moved in just last Thursday & Friday ruining our plans to present the Civil War Battles trunk show at the Clear Lake guild meeting.  We were really bummed about that - but are doing a reschedule for June.  We should be able to count on the weather by then (I would think) anyway.
Windham Sampler II
Our new Windham Sampler II is so exciting!  Block size is 10" making a 58" x 72" quilt!  I really like the 10" blocks, but you can still get the 5" size in the original Windham Sampler pattern.

And, what a deal, twelve block patterns retailing for $8.50; works great for a 6 or 12-month Block of the Month program. 

I simply love the floral border on this quilt!  Jo Morton's Amelia fabric line was new last fall, so I'll bet that shops still have it on their shelves or can get it!

The weeks are flying by quickly now, & we'll soon be leaving for the Pittsburgh market this spring.
We are working on lots of new quilts for the
we began last fall.  These quilts are so much fun & quick & easy to sew.  They give me this wonderful feeling of old & comfortable.   Won't be long now & we'll unveil them to you. 

Make a comment here telling us what you like best about the Windham II pattern & get your name into the hat for a FREE pattern. 

Back to work now!  Until later --

Happy Melting Monday!

Our weather has finally warmed up & the patio is drying out.  John also swept the garage free of ice that had dropped off the vehicles & it is drying out!  Wow, what a pleasant day at 53 degrees!  I was just out to the mailbox & really didn't want to come back in.  But -- snow in the forecast for tomorrow -- boo!

I want to pass along this information about a shop that is offering my Civil War Battle Series as an online Quilt of the Month!  Sound like fun . . . ?

Ft. Sumter

For more information & to sign up, go to .

So "walk the battlefields" with  Quilters Quarters in Leavenworth, KS (as they say)!!

Happy Valentine's Day !

Just a quick note to bring you a Valentine's greeting!  Hope you are enjoying your day & the entire month of February.  Don't you just love my greeter!

Sharon & I are working on new designs for spring market.  Traveling east to Pennsylvania excites us to the max & our quilting juices are running!  In fact, I'm also having visions of visiting some more Civil War sites while we are there. 

Well, hubby's calling & I have to go!  Again, have a glorious day!

Quilt Shop Day on Saturday!

Happy New Year!  Here we are into the end of January already.  Our weather in Iowa has been nasty cold with blowing snow, bad visibility & everything that goes with it.  I'm just hoping that next Saturday brings us a sunny & warmer day so all us can get out & visit our favorite quilt shops.  Doesn't that sound like a good plan!

You can also visit to see everything that is going on & support your local quilt shop owner.

A while ago the owner of Quilt Patch, Etc. in Mt. Pleasant, PA emailed me this cute picture of how she displays Clothesline Quilts patterns - on a clothesline! 

Go to to see what she has going on!

Enjoy your Saturday of shopping!
