Busy, Busy and a Give Away

I apologize for the “radio silence”. I’ve been busy working on lots of new patterns that will be ready for testing shortly. It’s crazy how much time pattern design takes.

Here’s a teeny tiny sneak peek….Can you guess the theme?6Finished up my batik swap blocks.

Finally finished my lady bug UFO from the July 2014 Fons and Porter magazine. Aren’t they cute!! Now if I can just get my longarm up and running. There’s a closet full  of tops waiting to be quilted.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Give Away

Up for grabs is a bright roll of Garden Party Batiks. This is an extra roll from a project I was working on.
