This prehistoric scene comes alive with a cast of colorful dinosaurs embellished with rickrack, buttons and yo-yos. This whimsical lap size quilt fits nicely across the top of a twin or full size bed and looks great as a decoration for the wall of a child's room. Have fun picking the fabrics for your dinosaurs! The colors listed in the pattern are only suggestions.
After a great quilt show in Rochester, NY, we are headed for Atlanta and will be at the Quilt Show & Market presented by the East Cobb Quilters Guild. It's coming up this Thursday through Saturday, so if you are in the Atlanta area, come on out to see us in booth 16.
It's Spring and the quilt shows are in full bloom. I'll be heading up to Flat Rock, North Carolina and then on up to Rochester, New York this month to vend at these great shows. Lots of wonderful quilts and great vendors to check out. Hope to see you there!
This fall I’ve been back to work on new designs for tea towels. I’ve been focusing on the seasons and designs with birds, flowers and bugs. So far I’ve got Summer Blooms, Fall Fest and Winter Charm printed and ready to go. Spring designs will follow in the next month or so.
Sometimes as I’m working on the patterns I do wonder about where my head is… Just after we took the photos for the Fall Fest cover and the cover was being designed, I realized my spider on the candy corn towel only had six legs! Thank heaven for photoshop that saved him from being less than a spider should be…..
But that particular towel continues to be a problem! After the cover was finished and off to the printer, I got busy making more samples of the towels. It was then that I realized that I had mixed up the order of the colors of the candy corn on the original towel. This is while I’m sewing with a generous supply of the candy, one of my favorites, at my side!
Oh, well, I’ll claim it’s creative license but you and I both know that yellow is on the bottom of a real piece of candy corn!
Jill Fischer from Durango, Colorado just sent me a picture of her lovely Ocean Frolic quilt and I'm privileged to share it.
She recently exhibited her quilt at the local county fair and now has two ribbons to show for her effort--a First Place and a Reserve Champion. Congratulations, Jill!
