NEW QUIT DESIGN - ACCUQUILT GO COMPATIBLE! ONE PATTERN WILL BE GIVEN AWAY!


This pattern has been in the makes for almost two years now.  I finally decided that enough hanging around is enough!

After I cleaned my space - a new energy came to me.  If I had know that just a little decluttering and shaming myself would spark a fire, I would have done it months ago.

So.....I finally have this one done, well the pattern is finished.  I need to do some more quilting on this but hey....it is out of the way.  On to newer pastures.  You can find it at craftsy, just click on the button on the side bar if you are interested.




Then I was just playing with this several months ago and just now got it quilted and the binding on it.  Kinda plain....but hey...it is done....off the banister, into the finished pile.

I feel renewed...rejuvinated!!  If I can just get this Tree of Life finished....I will feel young again!!!  I am laughing because if it was that easy to feel young and look young...well...we would all be finishing our projects that don't hold our interest anymore.

I am going to give away one pattern.  Just leave a comment.

A big thanks to my niece Christine for helping me with my patterns, she is going through all of them and putting a fresh (better instructions, better everything) coat of paint on them.  Thanks to Sew Cal for pushing me forward and to Sandi from Crazy bout Quilts for testing this for me and  to many of you who encourage me on.....

I feel like I have just made a speech for the Acadamy Awards....  I am now doing the float wave!!

Barb, I am amazed at how many patterns you make. I have written exactly ONE. It is a lot of work. I guess I need to see how you do yours. (grin)

I hope I am not doing this 2 times. I left a message and it went away. I really love the Go pattern. I just got one and don't have the die's yet. Your pattern really looks great. Thanks so much.
