Quilt to Share…

Here is a my design 45 & Life to go…done in red and white…it is just stunning…and the quilting…wow…does’nt get much better than that….

This is Maggie Honeyman’s quilt and I want to thank her  for sharing her quilt with me (us)…This quilt is 55×55, those are 1/2″ squares in the center of those blocks.  The pattern also comes with a 110×110 King size version with 1″ squares.

Do you have anything that I have designed but tweaked it to make yours different?  Send me a photo and I will share it with you all…

My favorite place to eat in KY…

We went to Pattie’s tonight for dinner…it was fabulous as always…we went with Bruce & Diane from Sew Batik, great people..they are in the Rotary where the antique quilt show is…we stopped in by them today so finalize our dinner plans and I got to peek at the quilts there…This year there is a collection of Pennsylvanian quilts ….they all are fabulous….here is a pic of one below…I don’t want to ruin it for those who are coming, so this one is for you who can’t be here..l just love the green print used in the background…i know this pic will not do it justice, but imagine how it is in person…this is not my most favorite quilt at the rotary, but close to it…if any one who reads this and goes to the rotary show…sends me a pic of what they think is my favorite quilt… I will have a prize for them…now only one try per person…send it to: lisa.bongean@yahoo.com by emailbr />

The next little tease…


Yesterday, we showed you a great deep navy…now todays offering is what I would call dark blue…not a navy but blue…so we now have the dark blues covered…

This line of fabric that I am teasing with will be shown at Spring market to shop owners…so I am thinking it will be in shops by October…seems like forever…such a long time from now…yesterday I sent in my next line of Flannels to be shown at Fall Market…life in the fabric fast lane…

Today, Nick.Jake (son#3) and I set up the booth in about 5 hours…not bad…lots of goodies for any of you that can come…since this post is talking about Moda fabrics…I have in the booth with me the precuts for the Seasonal Little Gatherings line that is coming in next month…we have them all…layer cakes, jellies, 5″ charms, fat 8ths, and fat quarters towers…and just a little FYI…the charms, jellies and layers only have 42 skus in them…the towers of fat 8ths and FQs have all 50 skus…yes this line has 50 pieces in it!

Now all for tonite…I am watching the rest of Idol…do you have a favorite? I really am not sure who mine is yet…maybe Colton???
