Great giveaway Alert go to www.granmascharms.blogspot.com she is giving away 4 boxes of fabric.


I finally got this lovely done for Mr. David Platt. I really love Backyard Baby fabric it is so detailed. The hardest part for me to get completed when doing a quilt is the hand sewing on the binding. My mom picked out the orange Kona fabric, to make it pop. I am glad I followed her advice.

Gotta get it in the mail to St. Louis.
There are certain people you talk to when you have a blog or go to other blogs that you know if they lived down the road, you would be the best of friends.

I am going to do this on February 7, 2012, and post all my fabric I think is Fugly and someone can have it for the postage or trade me something they have.
