And as a gift for my blog readers, you may use a special code on my website to receive 20% off any of our patterns – PDF and Printed versions!  I’ve made the code good from now through January 31, 2019. The code is ~

Discount Codes are easy to use on our website – once you are ready to check out, just click on the “Check Out” button on the shopping cart page.  You will see the screen in the photo above.  All the way to the right of the screen where that black finger is pointing on the picture is where you enter the discount code!
Patterns #439 – #443 you might have noticed are all done in the colors of blues, creams and browns.  I used a beautiful new line of fabric that is shipping to your favorite Quilt Shops this month!
This is Charlotte c. 1860. Carrie Quinn, owner of Pieceful Gatherings Quilt Shop in Fox River Grove, Illinois is the designer
The shop has fat quarter bundles available for Pre-Order on the website, so here’s a link to hop on over and check those out:
Carrie designed this quilt shown above called Charlotte’s Medallion and she has it on the shop website available as a Block Of The Month Program  Here’s the direct link for that:
Carrie also designed the quilt shown above called Charlie’s Star Puzzle!  Isn’t it amazing!  
On Little Bits pattern #444 I used all fabrics from another of my favorite designers ~ Pam Buda.  
She has her beautiful fabrics on her website in yardage and layer cakes ~ layer cakes are perfect for the Little Bits pattern ~ follow this link
But ~~~~  shown above is another game changer in our fabric loving worlds ~  6″ rolls of her lovely fabric.  Oh my goodness, I’m in love with these!  You can order these fabulous rolls (which also work with the Little Bits pattern perfectly!)  here at this link:
And I’ve blogged about her newest book that she wrote before but I must show you again:
I cannot tell you have much I love this book.  If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure and order it. It is a must have for your quilting library.  It can be found here:

Day #7 Spring Blog Hop – It’s My Day

For those of you that are new to my blog – welcome and enjoy!
I’ve created a cute and simple small quilt for you so grab your scraps of fabric and lets get to work! This is called “Mountain Two Step”. This little quilt needs only basic knowledge of sewing to create, so if this will be your first venture into making a quilt – no fear, you can do this! (pdf file for pattern located at the bottom of this blog post – just click on the star block!)
You know – small quilts can be used for more than decor on the wall!  Use them as table decorations, fold them and display them in baskets – or for a larger style basket, roll them up!  Or another idea for this pattern – create several blocks using my instructions and sew them all together to create a larger quilt!
And our recipe for you is something that we came up with.  I’ve tested the recipe and my family loved it!
Enjoy!

And today – here’s a little fun fact I found on FaceBook this morning!

Depression 1931 when they realized women were using their
sacks to make clothes for their children, the mills in West Virginia, Kentucky & Ohio started using flowered fabric for their sacks. The label was designed to wash out. If not for this many people wouldn’t have had clothes or quilts

Our latest quilting book is here!  I’m so excited that the finished product is in my hands and ready to share with you!

Dig into those scrap bags of leftover bits and pieces from previous projects! The author of Simply Charming: Small Scrap Quilts of Yesteryear is back with a fresh collection of small quilts to help you make the most of your scraps. From a simple nine-patch classic to star-studded charmers, you will find the perfect project for every skill level in this scrappy medley of 14 quilts reminiscent of days gone by. Quilt designer Tara Lynn Darr again took inspiration from her overflowing scrap bag to bring these little treasures to life with 1800s reproduction fabrics. Most of the blocks can be made with 5″ charm squares of smaller pieces of fabric. To help you achieve the best results when working with these small quilts, Tara has included her time-tested tips. 64 pages, 14 projects

Feel Free to visit our website to view all 14 projects in this book – or look below!
