Red Letter Day

 Hello Everyone,

What a way to start my day.  I knew Country Charmer was going to be the Cover Girl on the next Keepsake Quilting catalog....and here she is in all of her glory!!  I think she is looking pretty fabulous.  She is a centerfold without a staple in her navel.
Click HERE to see the new catalog.  If you have been thinking about making a Country Charmer, now is your chance.  All of the Robert Kaufman Holiday Flourish fabrics are selected for you.

 If you're thinking about purchasing the pattern or the kit, I'm going to dangle a quilting carrot in front of you.  I have an extensive tutorial for this quilt on my blog.  To access it, click on the Country Charmer tab on the top of the blog HERE.

Prairie Flower is also in the new catalog.  Click HERE to link to Prairie Flower.  The fabrics were designed by Pam Buda for Marcus Fabrics and the line is called Conestoga Crossing.

I'm just thrilled to see both of these quilts so artfully displayed in the catalog.  I'm just bubbling over with excitement this morning.  Thank you Keepsake Quilting for showcasing my patterns.  Thank you fabric designers Pam Buda from Marcus Fabrics, and Peggy Toole from Robert Kaufman Fabrics.  Your creativity makes my job as a pattern designer an easy one.

After I come down from this quilting high, I have to get back to work preparing for my two retreats.  My sister Gail is here at the cabin and we've been cutting kits for two days straight.  My quilting room that was so nice and tidy, now looks like a bomb went off in it.  Creativity at work!
