Day 11 - Final Quilts of Tabletop Turnabouts

The winner of the signed copy of
Tabletop Turnabouts from
the Midnight Serenade post is
Marsha B who said
"I can't wait for the book to come out,
everything in it is so adorable."


Well thank you Marsha.
And thanks to all who have taken
the time and energy to comment.

And I'm sorry there has been a lag 
between some of the posts.
But......
1) It's almost time for Market which
means we are busy, busy, busy
and
2) I got the scans of the fabric for
my next line and started designing quilts.

Once I start designing a quilt it kind of
takes over and doesn't let go until
the quilt is at least resolved in my mind.
It doesn't have to be finished but I
need to know that it's going to work.

So Marsha, will you please email Tammy 
your snail mail address and and she will send 
your signed copy of the book.

Now for this week, make a comment and this time 
the random number generator will pick someone to win
  a Table Stand.

And thanks for coming along with 
Martingale and me on this
journey through the quilts in
Tabletop Turnabouts.

Keep quilting ladies.  :)

Day 7 of Tabletop Turnabouts

The page from Tabletop Turnabouts
for today features my little quilt
Acorn Lane


Right now I think we're all very
appreciative of Spring with it's
warmer weather after the harsh winter.

Normally, however, Fall is my favorite
time of the year.  Squirrels scurry to 
bury acorns to savor during 
the long winter months.
Pumpkins, crisp days and nights and 
beautiful leaves are just a few of
the pleasures to be enjoyed each Fall.  

The winner of the fabric scrap bag and 
magnetic pincushion from Down by the Sea 
is Susie H. who is a Pisces girl with a special 
affection for whales.

Susie, please email your snail mail address to Tammie 
 at janpatekquiltsinc@gmail.com
and she will mail you your fabric and pincushion.  

Now for this week, make a comment and this time 
the random number generator will pick someone to win
 be a mixed scrap bag (all pieces at least 2" wide) of 
Sweet Violet and Lilac Ridge and a 
package of Freezer Paper
Fabric and something to help make your pattern.

Ladies from Tennessee & Day 6 from Tabletop Turnabouts

Yesterday we had a visit 
from a very nice group of ladies,
mostly from Tennessee with one or two 
from Georgia and I think there was 1 from Ohio.


I believe their common bond was originally 
doing a Sew Along with my book Homespun Hearth.
They called a couple of months ago to
see if they could come by.
We spent 2 or 3 enjoyable hours 
chatting and sewing and shopping.
Altogether a great group of ladies.
Thanks again for coming.  :)

The page from Tabletop Turnabouts
for today features my little quilt
Down by the Sea.


I just love whales - they are such awesome creatures
and we all need to work together to make sure
they are around for future generations to see.

We have a winner from 2 weeks ago
 of the scrap bag and Clover thimble.  It is Sheila S
who said "Oh my Gosh - Happy little quilts, 
They make me feel happy inside.".

Sheila, please email Tammie your snail 
mail address and she will mail you 
your fabric and thimble.  

Now for this week, make a comment and this time 
the prize will be a mixed scrap bag 
(all pieces at least 2" wide) of 
Sweet Violet and Lilac Ridge
and a magnetic pincushion.
Fabric and something to help sew it with.
