THANK YOU, ANNA!!
I have been REALLY lucky lately…it was another big win for me over at Woolie Mommoth Blog!! I have been lusting over this pattern for some time now…
…I was planning on buying it when down south this winter but now I don’t have to! (Insert a happy dance!!) It arrived in the Mail yesterday…along with this lovely piece of red checked wool (Anna knows me well…:)
You are probably wondering WHY a Canadian would get excited over an American patriotic quilt pattern…?? Sure there are American Flags on every corner…but we Canadians look beyond that!! Let’s plunk those flags out of the birds’ mouths (no offence to the Americans!!)…and place twigs of berries instead…and let’s get rid of the red, white and blue and haul out the Civil War fabrics…Do you see where I’m coming from…? Yup, I’m loving this little quilt…A LOT!!
This pattern was designed by Norma Whalley when she was with Geoff’s Mom Pattern Co.…man, now this lady knows how to design a quilt!!
We’ve all seen “In the Meadow You Can Build a Snowman”…GORGEOUS!! I predict a Blog Wide Sew-A-Long using this pattern, happening this Winter! Care to join me and several other quilters…?
Come on you KNOW you wanna!! (You’ve got to get ready…Winter’s a coming!! You can find the pattern HERE!)
Oh and have you seen Norma’s newest design…a matching TREE SKIRT!
Were those screams of delight that I just heard?? …Come on simmer down…but YES,I know…hard to resist!!
I predict that we might just HAVE to do BOTH these project because they just SEEM to GO TOGETHER!
FYI…this pattern is called '”Woodland Tree Skirt” by Norma’s newest company ‘Timeless Traditions’.
And then in the SPRING…how about “Star Garden”?? Man…I sure hope this lady slows down a little, so that we can get caught up!!
Ahhhh…Nothing like wishful thinking on a Sunday morning…
Have a great week!!~P
