A SURPRISE IN THE MAIL AND PRAIRIE MOON QUILTS

I got the sweetest email from Diane,....she told me she found a book that she wanted to send to me, she was at the store and thought of me. WOW.....WOW.... that is all I can say...is WOW. She sent this wonderful Book of Hawaiian quilts, the history and what the inspiration was behind them. The quilts are amazing just as she is for sending this to me.

She sent this cutest little Hawaiian shirt, I want to make some Diane....you have a tutorial of it? then some wonderful fat quarters. Thanks soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!!!




I was lucky enough to win the giveaway over at . Thanks so much Shelly, I was looking at the patterns and they look fairly simple to read and understand. If any of you have a chance, go on over to her blog, it is wonderful and they also have a website www.prairiemoonquilts.com
