Sweetwater Advent Calendar

One of my latest projects is an advent calendar for our college age student with little treats and love notes from home.   It is a Sweetwater project with their cute labels and fabrics.

You can find the kit in their etsy shop.

Thank you, Quilt Story

Thank you Heather and Megan for your kind words and for featuring my blog a few weeks ago.  And thanks to those of you who hopped on over from their blog, QuiltStory.  What a great way to share the fun!  Go and see the great projects they've found for Christmas.

Market "give-away"

*** Give away closed ***  
The winner is Suz, who wandered over from Quilt Story.  I've sent you an email, Suz.  Hope to hear from you soon.

This is my first official "give-away".  I want to share an item I received at Market.

These charms are from Sweetwater made with their new line coming out this fall, Reunion.  In case you haven't noticed, they're my true love (in the quilter's world that is) at the moment.  I love their fabrics and everything else they do.

If you'd like the long blue charm and a gift bag, leave me a comment on this post.  You have through Monday.  I'll post the winner on Tuesday.

Fall 2011 Quilt Market

Thought I'd share some of my favorite finds from Quilt Market.  I have lots to choose from for a give away in my next post.


 A beautiful quilt by Lucie Summers named "Summersville".


(I see a curtain pattern formulating in my mind) 

 Aneela Honey's "Walk in the Woods".

Me and My Sister -  . . . these ladies are always laughing!

Amy Bradley Designs  . . . cute, just cute.

Carolee at Adorn it had lots of cute quilts, and projects with accessories to match including buttons, and twill ribbon.  They have tons of ideas on their website.  And check out her blog for great scrap-booking ideas.

Kellie at Don't Look Now always has a new beautiful amazing quilt.  Love the Robots.  
I was excited to see that Riley Blake is coming out with "Peak Hour", a line of fabric with Kellie's darling cars from her previous quilt.

These ladies are always so gracious to let me take their picture.  I tell them that it helps us "regulars" see that these marvelous designers are actual people.

More to come later . . . and watch for  my Market give away!
