Just thought I would do a quick post about a new Primitive Magazine coming out!  I am so excited for these girls…go to their website and subscribe!  They will be coming out with 4 issues a year starting in April I believe…and you will see projects from Primitive Gatherings and other great designers in it!   Here is the link to their site…..LB

projects from retreat….



Here are most of my projects that I worked on at this past weekend retreat…bunches of blocks for a little Featherweight Club project…then I made a 6″ star block for shop hop…I don’t really care for the block.  I wish the star points were the same instead of alternating…but if I would have used a different fabric to set the star in it probably would have looked better…It is made with 1/2″ triangles…THANGLES  of course…then I fused and stitched the 9th block of Settler’s Pride a quilt designed by Maggie Bonanomi…I love this quilt…Can you guess where it is going to hang?..I also stitched a little table mat for my mother…it has chickens and a log cabin block…I gave it to her without taking a pic first…we are having a snow blizzard now…see what the window of my sewing room looks like?  Can you say snowday tomorrow???  LB
