I must apologize...

I must tell you that I'm sorry to have not posted a little more frequently. I have lots of excuses but no good reasons. To make up for it, I thought I could show you the cutest bag and quilt patterns with dimensional flowers that our friend Katie Cupcake has done out of Bubblgegum Basics. She is an up-and-comer with a young family and has recently designed her first fabric collection for Henry Glass. You might want to pay her a visit and let her know we sent you.

A new stack

This funky collection is called Luna and was designed my friend Gail Fountain for Maywood Studios. How hip is it? Thought you might like to see what it looks like before I wiggle my nose and it turns into something that is (hopefully) too much fun.

Kit girl

My granddaughter has moved back to town and is working with me a few days each week. What a treat this has been for me. She has been cutting kits for about 2 weeks and has taken to it like she was born to do it. I always tell her that she is my quilter.... she just doesn't know it yet! I'm not sure she agrees. I think every quilting grandma is entitled to at least one quilting grandchild, don't you?

Which kits has she been working on you ask? The latest is "The Wedding Quilt" from our new book "Cradle to Cradle". She kitted several of the quilts in the book and is now working on kits for our mystery Block of the Month which starts next month. I think she has done a good job on this one (it's my right to brag a little bit!), don't you?
