what can you make with…? from Moda Lissa

charm pack and moda candyWhat can you make with a Moda Charm pack, a moda candy and a few yards of bella solids?

A charm pack (42-5″ squares) and a mini charm pack (42-2 1/2″ squares) So easy. Start sewing with the precuts to make a quick project during balancing all the summer schedules. Plenty of room for autographs for a family reunion project.

The Transplant Mini Quilt and Giveaway from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

the transplant free pattern

Ode to Tucson
I live where there are green trees with green trunks.
Flowers grow rampant here making me sneeze.
The mountains are as high as you can see,
packed with intertwining trails perfect for trainees.
Our skies are deep blue and reach great degrees
but the sunsets are priceless they bring a fresh breeze.
Here I have seen snakes, jabalinas and bambis.
In our front yard ground squirrels eat peapods and newly
transplanted cactus which sends my husband into frenzies.

Butterflies flutter above cactus as I drink my morning tea.
Gato hunts lizards and mice just to tease.
Coyotes ...

Patriotic Table Runner – Free Pattern from Gray Barn Designs

rwb_Thankful2Sandy and I wanted to share something special with you as we approach Memorial Day.  Upon reflection, “Thankful” says it all.

The men and women who serve our country are extraordinary.  It is hard to fathom the depth of their patriotism and sacrifice from the comfort of our homes.  These individuals willingly position themselves as a shield between our families, friends and neighbors and the perils of the world.  Let us be thankful for their courage, integrity, dedication and sacrifice.

Free Podunk Posy Pillow pattern from Becky and Dean from Podunk Pretties

Nothing makes my little ole heart sing like pictures in my inbox of projects made using my tutorials and patterns.  It's makes all the hours spent designing and writing them worth the effort.  About a week ago Becky contacted me sharing her sweet pillows made with my Podunk Posy Tutorial.

Well it's my block but not my idea and not my photos so I had to ask for permission to share her and her husbands creations....yes I said ...
