A Happy, Busy Month!!

Hello Dear Friends,

I am embarrassed that it has been so long since I have blogged!  We have had a VERY busy, happy time  this past month and a half.......

The end of May brought a wonderful Quilt Market in Kansas City.

Our booth was decorated all in blues and white, featuring my new fabric line, "SPA."

Barb of Coach House Designs, designed beautiful quilts using the line.
I think it is one of my favorite groups ever!

The next weekend, was my youngest daughter, Katie's,
graduation from Savannah College of Art and Design.

Congratulations Katie!!

The next weekend, was Katie's bridal shower (at our house!)
A very hot day, but a day filled with love and
good wishes.

Two weeks after that, was the BIG event!
The rehearsal and then...

Katie's wedding!

It was a wonderful, happy event.
  One that created memories and joy we will carry for a lifetime.
Katie's husband, Trevor is a treasure and we are so blessed to
have him join our family!

Katie planned all of the decorations and it turned out beautifully!
It was so much fun!

What a joyful, special day!

During all of this, my new fall fabric line was released!

I love the rich colors that remind me of autumn!

Even though, I'm a little late...
I would like to introduce you to 
"Give Thanks" with a giveaway.

Two lucky winners will win the panel from this 
warm, vibrant group.

One half of the panel has this cornucopia..

the other half has a welcoming pumpkin.

Just leave a comment between now and Sunday (July 15th)
at 6:00 pm and I will use Random.org
to choose 2 panel winners!
(Please let me know if you would like it in brown or black.)

Good Luck and thanks for
getting all the way to the end of this blog!



  1. You have been busy! Congrats on your daughter's graduation and wedding. She is absolutely beautiful! Your new fabric line is cute. I love those fall colors.

  2. Congratulations on all the accomplishments! Can't wait to see the blue and white fabrics. They look gorgeous in the pictures.

    If I were to win, I would love the black background. I have a table runner done in fall leaves with black in the background and this would go great with it!
