square! How sweet!
EVELYN'S BUTTON BOUQUET provides a wonderful opportunity to create a floral quilt

We've assembled kits
including buttons & floss so you can easily make one too!
That little Half-Square
Triangle border would be a perfect place to use the BLOC_LOC
HST Ruler! These are less than 1-1/2 inches, but the 2.5

CAKE QUILT kit, which finishes 84 x 84 inches and features the
lovely fabrics, OPHELIA,

Don't be nervous, this

you want to do curved piecing we have template for that too!

got a new kitten this month. His name is Hal, he is 6 months
old, and came from our local animal shelter.
He is very curious and pesky, making
sewing and computer work difficult for me. But he is so
affectionate, even Meiko (our 3 year old, who looks a lot like him) is
starting to warm up! :)
It was suddenly kind of quiet, so I
went looking for him and found him napping in an empty shoe box in the
closet. How cute, for a minute, just before he started attacking
my hanging sweaters! LOL
