Fresh Vintage and a Bit More Dinner!

Ooopps... I forgot to post more winners for the last couple of days. Let's just chalk it up to a VERY long weekend full of pattern writing and photo editing! 

So here are some more winners of a BUTTERSCOTCH & ROSE box of scraps, courtesy of the very generous MODA and the new issue of Fresh Vintage shown below:

Please email me with your info. Congratulations!


On the home front:

We drove to a nearby beach for a photo shoot this weekend and managed to get a bit of play time in. A lot of football and sand play was had by all.



On the work front:

Our latest edition of Fresh Vintage has finally shipped! Can I get a hooray?! Wow, this one has taken a while to get out to you guys. Can't even begin to tell you how glad I am that its on its way! If you are on auto ship you should be getting it any day or have it already.

...the original vintage quilt that the pattern was created from. Just love the way it feels French and classic and Americana all at the same time.

So glad you like this one. It is one of my all time favorites I think!

Happy quilting,


What a wonderful picture of your daughter.... beautiful girl. I just love the quilt project from the new Fresh Vintage and the other projects as well. Looking forward to having it in my hands.

This is my first visit to your site. I found the link through the "tie one on" for your fig apron pattern. Your colours are lovely. The chickens adorable. For something a liittle less folksy, I would like to see you also include more muted gray tones for blues and greens and browns. A sort of back to mother earth reflection on a misty morning if that makes any sense. I do love your sunny colours. I agree, I am ready for cooler weather and wearing sweaters.

beautiful new quilt. I'm going to call them tulips.
lucky dinner winners! congrats:)

love the cream and beige together on the tulip quilt and the pop of color in the flowers,amazing how 'simple' can be so elegant! love it!

Seriously?! Wow. Am I still a winner even though I'm terribly late in claiming my fame? I'm starting to panic now... Also, I can't find your email. My computer may be to blame. *B
