Bright and Cheerful

Hello Everyone,

First things first, a very warm and heartfelt thanks to ALL of you who sent e-mails and commented wishing us well over the last few days. It gives me great comfort to know that many of you understand what we are going through right now. Just know that I have read EVERY comment and e-mail, I appreciate every one.

Our Rolo is no longer suffering and will always hold a special place in our hearts.

So, with that said, I thought you might all like a pick me up blog post. I know that I need one. Do you remember this post, where I gave you a little sneak peek?


Take a look at this quilt top that my friend, Justine, made with those luscious fabrics. Thank you, Justine... you are a peach!


Quick, fun, bright, bold, and cheerful, don't you think? The fabric is Pillow and Maxfield's Gypsy Bandana from Michael Miller and can be found here.


The quilt top is Perfect Ten. Quick and easy to piece and guess what you can get the QUILT KIT here!! Yes, you can make the same quilt and it would be a great gift for that teen in your life or just something to brighten your day like it is mine!!

So now, I just need to quilt this. I think a nice paisley design might just be the thing!

Until Next Time...

I'm in love with this line. I like how the quilt pattern really lets the fabric shine through. Paisleys are a perfect way to quilt it. Well chosen!

I've been a bit out of the loop, so I'm just saying now that I'm sorry about Rolo. We experienced such a loss in July, and it's fresh enough in my mind to know how you are feeling.

This quilt is stunning. I just love it and the fabric.

Hey Jackie - An easy pattern to follow and those colors were a delight!! A quick project, too. Can't wait to see it quilted - a RED binding will give it the finishing touch it deserves.
