Summer Block of the Week… Flower Penny Garden….and the best double chocolate chip cookie recipe ever…

I have been home a few days now from Salt Lake City…it was fun to hang out in Moda row…all the designers are a great bunch of girls…it was hard learning the ropes and being the “new” kid on the block…but now I know what is expected…Nick and I are packing up the boat to dump it into the lake tomorrow, I am so looking forward to that…but I did not for get about the Summer Block of the Week…Here it is….

I am going to use this red, dark pink and purple theme throughout all of the  13″ applique blocks…along with with the layered wool flowers…I think this is going to be the best summer BOW that I have done so far…I am only going to show this one block of the Summer BOW and I am not going to show you the “freebies” either…I know I am MEAN, but hey…that’s just the way it is!
you just have to trust me that it is going to be great!  The freebies will be all wool that is all I will give as a hint…

The freebies are for any $10 regular priced purchase to anyone  who comes in or purchases online.  The freebies will run for 13 weeks.  The Summer BOW will  run 14 weeks as there will be 2 weeks of optional finishing kits, inner border/cornerstone appliques and then scrappy sashing and border fabrics.   If you sign up for the Summer BOW you are only committing to the 12 blocks.  The first week will be $25 and will include all the background fabric…the rest of the blocks will be $10…  Finishing kits will be optional after you have seen the finished quilt.  Then you decide…Only the Penny Garden BOW and Summer Stars can be shipped together.  Please see our Newsletter on our website for the Summer Stars info….This applies to everyone EXCEPT for our International customers…we can arrange shipping monthly as your shipping charges are a lot more please advise us on if you would like monthly shipping.  SHIPPING BOW’S will be every Wednesday, starting June 1st…so please be patient and do not call just because your friend got hers and you didn’t…I know you are anxious but it will come…

So please feel free to sign up for our BOW’s now that you have seen a block…don’t wait…we only are going to do so many…Here is a easy recipe for Double Chocolate Cookies…I actually made them on Wednesday night…I needed to “nest” a little…here is the recipe:  THE BEST DOUBLE CHOCOLATE COOKIES EVER   ENJOY!

It is also the first nice day here actually 70 degrees…I must take the puppies for a walk now…later….LB

    Love the BOW! Can’t wait to recieve my block! Will you be sharing a list of threads before so that I can stock up? I doubt i have a purple…

    Lisa, I read with great anticipation about the BOW, so I am waiting patiently, if that’s what you call it. I have written to you via regular email concerning something I have that belongs to you. It has been ready to ship since you were in Paducah the first week. Please look thru your mail and see if you can find my note regarding your shipment “to be”. I need to know where to send it………Thanks,Liz
    I need some info before you sail away on the boat please.

    you’re so right – these are awesome;made them for Bunko at the community center
    sidenote, Lisa – when you visited the Feather Princess’ in Tampa you mentioned a fabric thread catcher to make with cotton and promised to make the pattern available – I have been bugging the girls in your shop for it too – sounds like a fun little project

    OMG! This block is so beautiful, I look at it everyday. I sent a picture to my friend who is out of the country on vacation. She would like to sign up but won’t be back until 5/29. I have never ordered anything from your website, (although I always buy at Road2Calif and the Long Beach shows).

    Can’t wait to get the first block, I’m so excited…

    Lisa, I don’t know how you do it! Every year the summer BOW is better that the last. I LOVE this year’s!! Also, I made the cookies (twice already). They have become my husband’s new favorite and I love making them because they are SO easy. Cheryl, GA

    Lisa, What are your favorite scissors for cutting out wool shapes with the fusible web, especially the tiny ones? I hate to gum up my good dovo scissors with the fusible web. Your summer blocks keep getting more & more gorgeous! Thank you!

    Lisa, I’m wondering if you have any idea what ,and how much, fabric you will use for the backing of this wonderful BOW? I was thinking about using my 25% off book coupon. Sorry but I need to save all I can so I can buy more and more!of your great things! I know this makes perfect sense to a quilter….LOL!!!!!! I love the way we are stitching the large flowers and the stems ……. I have never seen any done this way before and they are awesome!
    Thanks for all you do!

    An impressive share! I have just forwarded this
    onto a co-worker who has been doing a little research on this.
    And he actually ordered me lunch simply because I discovered it for him…

    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending time to discuss
    this matter here on your site.
