Hi Y'all! Guess what? There was a big box on the porch last Friday...and that meant I received a Go Accuquilt cutter!! Cool huh??? I know these have been all over blog land, and I the the lucky one now... I will try it out soon, this week, and give you all the info I can about it and a project idea too...and I also get to give one away in the near future!! Stay tuned!!
Just can't leave well enough alone, can I...these leaves in the border sprouted overnight, and will get stitched down...they are plaid too...Hmmmmm, still don't know about this one!! LOL, I love quilting by the seat of my plaid britches!!
Nine patches!! Aren't these just so pretty? My photography isn't pretty, but these nine patches are wonderful! They are from Barb, of www.funwithbarbandmary.blogspot.com. Please take a minute and treat yourself to their blog...these two ladies have such a wonderful blog!!!



On one, off one working this week...all week long! Saturday is the American Heart Walk, and I am the coordinator for our unit...so that should be fun! It is a 5 K walk. I helped raise funds for the American Heart Association this year, and donated a quilt for auction...it raised a little bit, and every little bit helps!!!


Everyone...hope you are doing great!!!

Love the little plaid quilt. How cool to add those leaves. It looks wonderful! Sorry your schedule takes such an ugly turn this week. Hope the GO! balances out the energy drain. Less energy needed to cut? Hope your walking earns lots of support for AHA!
