Fall Market 2016

It’s hard to believe Fall Market 2016 has come and gone!

Many years ago, we lived in a charming small town with a street that was always beautifully decorated for the holidays.

I have many warm memories from our time there and it is what inspired me to design my new Contempo fabric line for Benartex,

sweet little snowmen, and lots of snowflakes!

The collection includes a panel with a happy skating snowman.

I will be releasing several new Mulberry Lane patterns and a coordinating embroidery collection with OESD early next year.

One of the fun things to happen at this Market, was that our Benartex Contempo booth, shared by my friend Amanda Murphy and I, won 2nd place!

 Thanks so much for visiting!

I’m back…

Hello there, I’ve been gone for a long time
and have been missing ya’ll so much!
2014 was an incredible, but crazy, busy year for me…
So many awesome things happened
and I want to share some of the fun things
I worked on over the next few days…
It all started with Celebrate the Seasons with C&T
The book includes patterns for Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter,
all with full size layouts & reversed templates!
I had a great time working on each of these projects,
and if I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be
Thankful… or maybe Merry & Bright?…
Humm, I don’t know…
the little chicks in Happy Easter turned out so sweet, plus …
well, then there’s the map, love maps and travel! … lol…
Okay, how can a mom have a favorite child, right?
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs,

Christmas in July and a giveaway!

Welcome to my day in the Modern Holiday Blog Tour!

Modern Holiday is a gorgeous book
filled with beautiful projects!
From cover to cover,
this book will inspire you!
Not only are the quilts, pillows, stockings,
the advent calendar, the tree skirt, and many more, amazing,
but the book itself is one of the pretties quilting books ever!
plus, Amanda’s instructions are clear and easy to follow.

These are some of my favorites…

 …love the appliqued snowflakes…

Don’t you just love these?
…so fresh and modern!
 I already know what fabric I’ll use for my advent calendar…
Yeah, those are little Yo-Yos… love, love!

 …the tree skirt is soooooo pretty… gotta have one too!

When I saw Amanda’s quilts at Market,
I knew I had to make the cover girl, Holiday Forest…
 … you know how much I like trees!
and I had some happy fabric in my stash
that was perfect for this quilt…
The easy to follow, step by step instructions,
made this a fun, easy, and super quick project.

I love it! And have enough leftover fabric 
to make the matching pillows!
