Good Morning

Hi - Just a gentle reminder that the Million Pillowcase Challenge totals need to be sent to me by March 15th...I will be contacting American Patchwork and Quilting on the 16th.

I am so excited with the results I'm receiving!  I know the people that will be receiving them are going to be so excited!  Let's make a difference in someone else's lives.

If you are seeing this for the first time...........make some pillowcases and donate them to your local charities........just let me know how many you've made and send me a picture please. 

Ok, it's back to work on the "Painted Lady" quilt - It's NEW for spring.  Hope to share all the new ones coming out with you very soon!

Visit with Cypress Creek Quilter's

I spent a couple of days with  the Cypress Creek Quilter's Guild on the west coast of Florida this week.  Tuesday night I shared over 70 quilts at their monthly meeting and the next day taught a class.  Aunt Ree's Raspberry Jam was the quilt they chose to work on and I was delighted to see some of them work with their own favorite colorways.   I had the best time with these gals.  You can see more pictures on my website using the link below...
