May's block starts the appliqueing process. The designer, Beth Ferrier has some great tips on how to speed up the applique process.
But, this is still going to be a challenge for me. I hope this project gets me over my fear of applique, if it doesn't I guess this will be a wip (work in progress) for a looooonnnnngggggg time. LOL

Started out on Friday, I opened the e-mail and there was two orders for patterns. No big deal, counted them out, printed invoices and off to the post office I went. Saturday I got up and opened e-mail and found three more orders for patterns lol. I was feeling really pleased, counted them out, sent the invoices and off to the post office I went.
Well, this morning I opened my e-mail, and there they were. 6 more orders for patterns, for a total of 72 pattern. LOL at this point, I am a little over whelmed and have recruited help. LOL
Randy and the girls helped me count out, package up, and I did the invoices. So, first thing tomorrow off to the post office I will go. :)
I'm almost afraid to open my e-mail this afternoon. But, to be honest, it's so rewarding to see others enjoying my pattern and all of my hard work is finally PAYING off.
Have a great day

This is a Chemo quilt that I am making for a dear friend of mine. I used Moda's new fabric line, "Maypole" and a white on white. It is such a nice bright fabric, it's bound to cheer anyone up.

Where do I start?
My daughter's friend wanted a vintage prom dress. She bid on a few she found on e-bay but was out bid each time. So, I offered to make her a dress. We found a McCalls pattern that was printed in 1952.
We went shopping for fabric and she found some lovely fabric. The dress is almost done; she comes tomorrow night for a final fitting. Oh my it's been a while since I have sewn other then quilts.
Bear my gelding was chased threw a fence and received some nasty wounds.
He is doing much better now and we are are even back to riding.
I started my Pinwheels and Posies BOM. http://applewd.com/BOM/page1.html
WOW the colors are wonderful and the pattern is so well written I am so excited about this project.
The pattern I had published is really starting to take off. The printing is now on it's third run. Wow, what a thrill.
Now on to some sad news. A dear friend of mine has been diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer. She has had surgery and is recovering at home. Soon she will start her Chemotherapy and Radiation. So, I wanted her to have a special hug from me and I started a chemo quilt.
I'm using Moda's new line, called "Maypole" http://www.hancocks-paducah.com/ItemList--Moda-Maypole-By-April-Cornell--m-782
It's nice and bright, and I'm using a white on white.
Well, that should catch you up to speed as to what is going on here.
I hope all is going well in your corner of the world.
Hope to see you again
