This is a package from Sew Cal Gal, she has two blogs, one for information and her personal blog and then a giveaway blog. Now there is something I want to tell you about Darlene, she will give you the shirt off her back....she has emailed me on numerous occasions to give me information or help in regards to my pattern and my niece's blog. She is a wealth of information and a wonderful friend. If you have not been to either of her blogs, please go over and say hello.

She sent these fabrics and a pattern for my ladies at church. Wonderful huh?

More items for the tsunami victims.

Now I have been looking over this and am itching to get started on it, it is the Plumaria with the interfacing to help you get started. I am going to love this!!

This book is wonderful, I am going to spend time today giving this a good read....from what I can see, the patterns are wonderful...

I just love applique and Darlene knows it, thanks so much Darlene!!

Then she sent me this Hawaiian amazing....

as you can see by the pictures, these quilts are just awe inspiring.

I don't know how they turn under such small pieces....amazing to me...
