Precuts Winner and a 2nd Chance

First, I want to say how much I enjoyed reading your comments each night.  Such a wide variety of gardens and experiences.

Ok - Now for the important stuff.  
The winner of the Garden House Precuts was #53 - 

I volunteer as a master gardener in my south Texas county, and this Saturday we start our spring program teaching children how to grow vegetables. It was so rewarding last fall watching them dig up their potatoes, and hunt for their green beans (which blended in with the plants so well.)


What a wonderful experience for you Lyn, and for the children you work with.  I'm afraid all of my master gardening is done with bulbs and perennials, mostly on quilts.
If you will email your information to Tammie at or call her at 816-632-7632 we'll get your precuts out to you.


right after I posted the drawing for the precuts, I found out that our local PBS station KCPT will be showing the segment of Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting that I'm on, this Saturday, February 27th at 7:00 A.M.

One of my sons commented that quilters must be early risers.  
Could be I said - but more likely we all have DVRs :). 

Anyway, to celebrate we decided to give away a kit for the Garden House Pillow.

So here we go with making comments again.

I thought it would be fun to comment on making small projects and why you like them.  I personally think they're great even thought I usually make much larger quilts.

Tammie suggested that I could have you comment on how much you like to take naps.
Pretty good idea.

So anyway, make a comment on either subject or just say "hi" and we'll do another drawing  a week from Wednesday and post the winner.

Have a great week ladies.

We're all Sick of Snow and ready for a change

And to help us along my latest fabric line "Garden House" is shipping to your local quilt shop this month.

And this is Grandma's Garden, a wallhanging or tablerunner that I designed using it.
You notice my "garden" still includes quilting :)
I'm not quite ready to stay outside and work in the garden all day.

A few months ago I met Patrick Lose in Iowa to film a segment of PBS's Love of Quilting.  It was great fun and those segments are starting to air now.

Check with your local PBS station for times that they air.  I think I may have already missed the show in Kansas City but they assure me that they
 repeat so we're taping them all.

This is the Garden House Pillow that we worked on.  If you want the pattern you need to get a copy of the magazine. You can find it at your local quiltshop, wherever quilting magazines are sold or go to

If you want a kit you can order one from me by clicking here.

Now for the fun part.
Leave a comment about gardening (can be potted plants in an apartment or a field full of flowers or veggies) and you'll be entered to win the Garden House precuts.
We'll have a the Random Number Generator pick a winner and announce it next Wednesday.
Good luck ladies.
