Get out your mowers!

This new quilt and pillow set is "Fresh Cut" from Heather Bailey and Free Spirit. It's going to my super talented graphics gal, Timi Carl of Cinnamon Girl Studio. She has two more sets on the way. Everyone loves this one- even my horse Tys- who got into a fight over it with Ollie, my cat.

I know you're trying to decide on fabrics....

Too many to choose from! I have all of Jennifer Paganelli's Sis Boom available, and just go to the Free Spirit Westminster Fibers website to get really overwhelmed. It's just so great to have so many choices. The face of quilting is really changing...more modern, more variety, more color! I am getting ready to go to Quilt Market with Mrs. P (that's what my son calls Jennifer) in Pittsburgh, PA on Friday. I'll take lot's of pictures. Here we are at a local shop in Westport, CT opening where we have our things for sale. Isn't she lovely! Such a great friend... I'm so lucky.

Witchy Poo Cares!

Lovely Marie, owner of "Witchy Poo"- a delightful accessories shop here in Wilton, CT threw a festive fundraiser for "Wilton Cares", an organization to help local families in need. People brought non perishable food items and household products to deposit into the food bank. Local businesses- Dinas, Soup Alley, Zeytinias and Stefanos among others ( forgive me if I left anyone out) donated the food and wine. Jennifer Paganelli donated fabric and I whipped up a "Dorm on a Drawstring"- twin quilt, pillowcase, lavender sachet, and laundry bag/pillow case- which was raffled off later in the evening along with a really cute folk art chicken pillow- 

can't remember the name of that generous soul... anyway- it was a lovely evening and it is nice to see that Wilton does care!
