Last Post of 2017, Last Free Pattern of 2017… Time For A New Year… Best of 5 Posts…

Winter Olympic Games Block 04

It is hard to believe that another year has passed by so darn quickly. It seems just like yesterday that I was writing the first post of this year which was a “Best of 5 Posts” also and participating in the linky party that Meadowmist Designs hosts each year. I met some wonderful quilters and bloggers thru doing that, so this year I definitely wanted to participate again.

2018 marks a big event for my blog, it will be my 5th year as a blogger and in my wildest dreams I never even once thought I’d still be around for 5 years let alone loving it so much. I love love love blogging, Continue reading

CCRAL Giveaway Winners For Sept 07 + Calibre Art For Sept 14

Christmas Caroling Row Along

Christmas Caroling Row AlongHello Again Everyone… it takes me quite some time to draw the names and notify all the winners, but today I did manage to get started on it early in the day. So, here are the winners for last Thursday, September 07, 2017 and Calibre Art Winners for September 14, 2017.

Let me note, the Calibre Art giveaways are a 50% off coupon. At Amazon, some of these mats are already on sale at 50% off, and you do get the additional 50% off of the current sale price, so a mat that might cost 100.00 discounted by 50% off is around 50.00, plus your additional discount of 50% off makes that mat just $25.00.

Several of you have passed on the mats, and that’s fine, Continue reading

stbs-2016-gingerbread-b2

stbs-2016-gingerbread-b2-on-snowGood Morning All, I apologize for being late this morning, I was writing the post last night and kept falling asleep at the laptop.. I finally decided to just write Janeen and let her know I’d be late today.

Today’s release marks 3 shapes to download, two of them for Block 02, and the other another part of the Train border. There are two pdf files, so be sure you download both files.

I thought I’d show you two ways the gingerbread can be done… just a slight adjustment makes this look just a little different.

12 Days 2016 Day 01

12 Days 2016 Day 01

Today is the start of this really fun event that Janeen at Quilt Art and I have been cooking up for months now.

She did the background, and I’ve done the foreground.

Each day for the next 12 days, we will bring you a new background a new foreground block. We’ll try to sync our releases for the same time, but because we are a 8 hour time zone difference away, they may not always sync, so you might need to come back.

There may also be times when their are still two free patterns up, this will be because of 24 hours not finishing on the day old pattern yet, We both are committed to keeping the patterns available for 24 hours, so you will need to visit each day for the next 12 days. We will NOT give a free pattern after the 24 hours are up for the previous patterns. Please don’t ask us to.

Today, I am releasing the giftbox and Continue reading
