I’m celebrating the month of May and all that it brings to each of us, with a new free pattern from Bunny Hill!  I’ll show you how easy it is to make a reversible table runner with a beautiful ruffle on each end.  Simplicity is what I’ve named the pattern because it really is simplicity at its best.  Just […]

    DeAnna Dodson - Oh, man, I SO need to declutter. Everything!

    I could get rid of 3/4 of what I have and never miss it. O.o

    Looking forward to more on the cute tablerunner! :DReplyCancel

    Hildy - I love the table runner you’ve designed because it’s Halloween and there are cats! But first I need to finish a quilt before I start with it but lucky for me it’s a holiday on thursday and friday I don’t have to work … so long weekend and a lot of sewing time.
    Decluttering sounds great and I think it’s because it’s spring that we all think about it and part with the things we don’t need any longer. But I don’t part with my fabrics;-)
    Oh, and what is it with dogs and cat treats? I remember my neighbor dogs loved nothing more than the old cat food we put out for them. But I promise no treats for Chelsea.ReplyCancel

    mimi'sdarlins - Hi Anne,
    You are one busy lady! I’m right with you on decluttering, concentrating on my sewing room and one other room and believe it will make a more pleasant quilting life in general when I complete the task. I’ll check out the books you mentioned, always nice to get another point of view. Your new arrangement looks great :)ReplyCancel

    Karen Martin - Those bundles are pretty tempting! I’ve been thinking about downsizing and clearing out some things. A friend has been reading the Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and is after me to feel the joy too–lol!ReplyCancel

Happy Monday everyone!  I’ve got a surprise for you that I designed for The Fat Quarter Shop.   I think you’re going to want one.  It’s a cute table runner that will go perfectly with all the other Spooky Delights patterns we have and the best news is that you can get the pattern for free!   You can read […]

My friend Kimberly, at the Fat Quarter Shop has been doing a Designer Mystery Block of the Month every year since 2011!  I think I’ve had the honor of being in at least half of them! Kim chooses a fabric collection and then invites designers to join her in designing a mystery block.  The result is fun, […]

    mimi'sdarlins - There are so many great combo possibilities in these prints! If it would surprise me, then I’d guess the blue dots, the black stripe and the white print. At least those appeal to me today…guess we’ll have to wait and see what block you made :)ReplyCancel

    Hildy - Such beautiful fabrics! I think your block is the one between the 2016 and Designer script with the navy bias strip, the dots on aqua and the little blooms on aqua. At least that’s the only one with 3 fabrics from the 9-patch, lol;-)ReplyCancel

    Barb R. - I think it’s the red check & floral near the bottom. Whichever one it is, I know it’s fabulous!! :-)ReplyCancel
