Happy Valentines Day! -

May your day be filled with people and things that you love.


This is Heart to Heart.  I'm having Girl Gang in the loft tonight (Pep has to work - besides we have the other 364 days to share love with each other too).  Anyway,  this little quilt will be on the table with the cookies.  

We're doing Pine Tree Ridge this year.  Speaking of love - I love this quilt!


Meanwhile the chicken soup is on the stove for dinner and the oven is heating to bake the cookies - Pink Lemonade cookies, no less - from a mix.  Pep's the chef, I'm a cooker.  :) 


We're starting with Block #1, of course.  The house as you can tell, is pretty big to applique.  And since I've been doing this for a year or two, I've conquered the problem of getting large pieces appliqued to the backing without bubbles and buckling in the background.  So come join us if you can. We meet the 2nd Thursday each month between 6:00 & 8:00.  You can email Tori at janpatekquilts@yahoo.com for more information.   If you live a couple of hours away, we have some really nice, reasonably priced motels in the area.  I'd offer overnight stays but my bedrooms are pretty full with grandkids n such.
Right now I'm in the middle of designing patterns for Spring Market but as soon as I finish I'm going to see about doing some small tutorials on applique tips.


This is Coxcombs and Pomegranates.  Someday I'll have a better picture.  It is awesome, even if I do say so.  


I took some close-ups in the house so that you could see the quilting.


Lori outdid herself - but then she always does.


I don't know if we have any kits left but if you want one you can email Tori and check.  And now I get to sit and sew the binding on - my favorite part.  If you got the BOM I think we forgot to send the binding with the border and sashing so we'll be getting it out to you asap - no charge for the shipping of course.


Coxcombs & Pomegranates is the Christmas quilt for my bed next year.  And now I can't wait for Christmas......... well........almost.


This is the beginning to the FF 2013 BOM - Spring Break - 98" x 90".  Can you tell I don't like to do the same thing  twice?  Cost is $27.50 a month including shipping - borders and sashing extra.   Space is limited - sign up soon (if you belonged last year it's automatic renewal unless you tell us you're opted out).   Did I already post this?  I can't remember.  Well if I did, it bears repeating.  :)

Keep quilting.

    1. Great to have you back Debbie. For those of you who don't know, she weathered the storm and no power for days. She said quilts helped. Hope you're warm and toasty now.
