Hi all!

Happy St. Patrick's Day & National Quilting Day, both happening Saturday March 17th!

My favorite color is GREEN!  Why not sew a scrappy GREEN QUILT to celebrate! :O

Check out your stash and there are lots of green fabrics on SALE NOW, plus a quilt kit too!

I'm very excited that after all these years of sitting quietly on Main Street in downtown Newton, I've finally got a rather loud BILLBOARD on I-135, just south of town.  Breckyn spotted it late yesterday afternoon!  In the fading light, it still looked good to me.  LOL  Always love a good Kansas sunset! 

 Speaking of the highway, we KNOW YOU want to JOIN US on the Happy Trails Bus Tour.  (Complete itinerary here.)

 This mild Winter continues, and we're experiencing a lovely, early Spring.  

My projects seem to have taken a "lighter" turn!

I just finished a new quilt, FRIENDS.  I was inspired by the URBAN COWGIRL group from MODA, Darcy Ashton's HORSING AROUND, and Susan Marth's BEST FRIENDS book.

I cut my TUMBLER or THIMBLE blocks using Studio Accu-Cut die cutter.  Do you have a Go-Cutter at home?  If not, come rent time on our Studio cutter located at Charlotte's Bargain Fabric & Stitchery in The Chisholm Trail Mall.

Or, use the new Marti Michell TUMBLER TEMPLATE to quickly cut any of 5 sizes.  I used the finished 3" size cut from 3-1/2" strips.

 I cut all my tumblers, put them in a sack, pulled out one at a time, sewing them together randomly.  I pressed all the seam allowances one direction.  Reversing the direction of the strips when sewing, they nested together perfectly.  Meiko tired of helping!  Click here for more pictures:


 Susan makes her quilts with 2-1/2" strips, Jelly Rolls, Treat Strips or Bali pops.  She gives great instructions for QUILT-AS-YOU-GO to finish quickly.  And there are full-size, reversed letters for appliquéing FRIENDS, MOTHER & SISTER.  

What a great MOTHER'S DAY gift!
