The end is near...

The end of June and Summer's End (the pattern, that is) are both near. You still have time to comment to be signed up for a Summer's End booklet and 2 Candy Bars. Several ladies have questioned where to buy the Candy Bar cuts, but as far as I know, they were just a special market giveaway. Quite a collector's item!

Since the grandkids were here, I'm chasing daylight trying to get caught up again. My Christmas fabric collection for 2011 is due July 1st and we just got in the new KT Favorites fabric. Lois and I start sewing tomorrow to make several projects for a booklet with the KC Star, Border Garden. I'll take a picture before sending it to the quilter next week.

Thought I'd share a few shots of the garden. The Morning Glories were just 3" high shoots from a friend's garden this spring. Nancy Arnoldy also gave me alot of Brown-eyed Susans - the rabbits thank her! Just figuring out this year what grows well and what's considered a snack by the critters.

Talk to ya on the 1st,

Okay ladies, the June Giveaway is a Summer's End pattern and a couple of "candy bars" (Moda's new 2 1/2" x 5" cut). They're a great cut and fun to work with for small projects. Log in between now and June 30th to be eligible.

Last month's winner, Peg, please email me with your mailing address so we can send your Square Pegs pattern. Congrats!

All 4 of my kids, Robert's daughter, Jacque, and 6 of the 8 grandkids are here this weekend for the River Festival. Too much fun! We'll have 3 or 4 of the grandkids for another week, so it'll be fairly quiet on the blog. Here's how I'll be spending my days. Have a fun week!

Booth questions

In answer to Sharlotte's question about the pinwheel quilt, that's one of our KT Stash Society projects for this summer along with the ornaments, sunflower and churn dash quilts next to it. Check our website at under KT Stash for a list of participating quilt shops in this fun monthly program. Thanks for the inquiry. Any other questions???

May Winner of Square Pegs Pattern...

Congratulations to Peg of peacebypiecing in Colorado. Number #83 was picked out of 84 comments - you can thank Rowan for that! You will receive a Square Pegs pattern just as soon as they're printed next week.

So many quilters have posted great pics of market - here's a couple more of our booth. Edyta Sitar of Laundary Basket Quilts is often our neighbor at market so we get a chance to visit a bit. She and her husband, Michael, are always fun to have next door. We're both excited about the cruise to the Bahamas we're teaching on in Jan. 2011 with Stitchin' Heaven. Sandy Klop of American Jane is also cruisin'. We'll be sailing, quilting and playing with about 70 quilters for a week - can't wait! The boat is almost full, so check it out today!

The June giveaway will be announced in a couple of days.
