Patterns are for sale! CONTEST!

Well, after much thought and many requests from customers and stores, I have finally added my current patterns that are for sale to my blog.  At this time I don't have a regular website, so until I do develop one I was asked to show you my phone # and email address so it would be easier for you to find and order my patterns.  See the list and photos of them to the right of my blog where you can access them at any time.  I hope it helps us all!

Of course we are in the full swing of market work for Houston, and I have been working hard on new designs for magazines and fabric companies, like Benartex, RJR Fabrics and P&B Textiles!  So many beautiful new lines are coming out and I'm have such a great time designing and making quilts for them.  I'm so honored and thankful for this dream job of mine that helps me earn while I do what I really love to do most, next to being with my family.  I'll try to share a few sneak peeks as I go along!
This cute little quilt, made from RJR's line called
"One is One" is a darling little girl's quilt with big flowers appliqued on.
I'm also very excited to tell you about a Christmas Quilt I made for Quilting Treasures that landed on the cover of Quilter's Newsletters new issue called Best Quilts
 for Christmas!  I was so surprised and thrilled when my quilt was returned to me with 3 issues.  Only then did I realize my quilt was on the cover!  So exciting!

CONTEST! Post to my blog, and a lucky winner will win an issue of this magazine!  I want to share the issue with one of you!  You have one week to post, and the winner will be chosen at random on Thursday, Oct 6th!  So stay tuned! I will announce it then.

In between all the "work" I have to do, I actually finished a UFO from a long long time ago!  Not my pattern, but just fun to do for the fall season.  I have to share, even though it is not quilted yet, and you know that is going to have to wait!  LOL!
Well, I just can't let the day or this post go by without sharing a sweet picture of my little grandson who is growing so fast!
Yes indeed, little Shane is getting to be a big boy!  Can't wait to see him again!  Thanksgiving we get to see all the grandkids and it will be so much fun.  But for now, I have work to do!  So I'll catch you soon, and I'll be back for sure on Monday.
Have a great weekend and Keep Quilting!

Hi Diane! I think your cover quilt is wonderful, and would *love* to win the magazine since I live in Europe and can't buy it at the store!
