A Pattern for All!

Looking for a quick quilt project for a gift?  A pattern that works with almost any fabric?  Are you a beginner trying to find an easy way to get started?

This is it!  Hummingbird Highway brings you a simple, easy-to-make, easy-to-give quilt pattern.  The photo shows a sample done in a variety of floral print sizes.  Imagine a pirate quilt for a little boy, girly girl paisleys, or retro owls peeking out among the squares.

I've listed many new patterns in the past week.  By far, this is one of my faves.  Head on over to The Little Shop of Stitches' Etsy shop to see it all!

Happy Stitching!

I get by with a little help from my friends...

"Friendships are stitch at a time."

The author is unknown, but oh so wise.  Where would we be without those in our lives who catch us as we falter, then hold us up even higher than we began?  Those are the people you pray for as you complete each tiny stitch.  Those are the people who believe in your vision, even if they cannot yet see it.  They don't need to ask questions.  They just know.  Each tiny stitch toward the big picture.

From Crayons to Cotton

A walk through the grocery store tells me it is "Back to School" time.  Being a former teacher, I don't really need a reminder.  My brain automatically does a do-over in August.  Something related to Pavlov, I am sure.

I always loved opening a brand new box of Crayolas.  Still do, as a matter of fact.  My eyes simply savor the colors, the combinations, the possibilities. 

My return from the Holmes County Fabric Show has resulted in a new box of crayons for me.  I've traded my Crayolas for luscious cotton fabric!  I savor the colors, the combinations, the possibilities.  To play off of Dr. Seuss, "Oh, The Quilts I Can Make!"

I will have pictures soon.  Stay tuned!
