Due to a little misunderstanding on my part…my winner for the Sweet Celebrations tour hasn’t been announced yet. I’ve got a bunch of stuff to show and tell about the book and my trip to quilt market, but I’m going to have to make this post quick–the preschool trick-or-treaters will be here any minute. :)
In the meantime, Lovie Ball, you’re the winner of a lovely Fat Quarter Bundle and a copy of Sweet Celebrations!

I know a lot of people have a hard time with Mondays.
Turns out I really like them. I mean, of course it’s not fun to clean up from the fallout of the weekend. But I enjoy being able to have a fresh start, see how much better this week can be than the last one. I guess it’s like starting a new year, only on a smaller scale. A more manageable scale.
So! Today, my plan is to take back some library books, return a swimsuit (or two!) that just don’t work (thanks Costco!), dream up some new projects in the hammock while the kiddos ride some bikes, and hopefully (crossing fingers) put a few plants in the ground. I know it’s crazy late, but the weather has been so ridiculous around here, I’m only now starting to trust that the snow might not come back for a few months.
Send some good weather vibes my way, would ya? I’d really like some flowers in my flower beds, and a few veggies in my garden. (And NOT what happened last year.)
What are YOU doing on this lovely Monday?
Thought that would get your attention.
I’m so excited to be able to work with Josephine Kimberling’s Just Dandy (Robert Kaufman) for one of my upcoming patterns. It’s beautiful! I mean, I love it in the pictures online, but seeing it and working with it in person is another thing entirely. It’s simply intoxicating. The prints play so nicely together, and there’s just enough unpredictability in the colors to make it really, truly unique. (That yellow? Swoon.)
So, to celebrate spring (yay!) and to reward you lovely people for being patient with my lack of attention around here, a fat quarter bundle, just for you.
I’m not above bribery.
To put your name in for this little pretty, leave a comment telling me what your favorite color (or colors!) are to create with. If you want more than one entry? Follow me on Twitter, like on facebook, subscribe to the newsletter, or the feed, tweet about it, blog about it. Technically, my friends, you could get in to win this thing 7 times. Oh, and if you’ll leave a separate comment for each entry (and link me to your post/tweet if you did those), that will help me make sure you get counted the right number of times. If you’re already following/friending/liking/subscribing/whatever, just tell me that in the comment. Totally still counts!
Winner will be chosen Friday, May 6th.
In other news, I’ll be listing some of my extra precut fabrics in the shop in the next day or two. Gotta do some spring cleaning in my studio. Seriously. The place is overflowing. Besides, I’m fairly sure you guys can always find a place for Bliss, Fandango, City Weekend, Simple Abundance…just to name a few. A couple of these lines haven’t been easy to find of late. You could get lucky! Keep your eyes peeled.
Next week? New patterns! I can hardly wait to show you the amazing work Natalia did on the quilting. Honestly? That girl is a machine quilting goddess.
Mwa! (And get those entries in!)
