This week's bundle is a 7-pc. selection from among the collection of Twilight Garden by Mary Jane Carey of Holly Hill Quilt Designs. Mary Jane's styling is often of the romantic bent, but in this collection she taps into the gentle romance with those of us who happen to love purple. Partnered in this collection with soft blues and creams it seems like the perfect dream of a perfect quilt.

The Challenge was accepted by Pat Carter of Alpine, WY.
Here is her story.
I am Pat Carter, and I live on No-Name Mountain in Alpine, WY, a small town nestled between the Wyoming and Salt River Ranges in northwest Wyoming. We are located south of Jackson Hole, WY, at the southern end of the scenic Snake River Canyon.
Grand Teton National Park (40 miles) and Yellowstone National Park (90 miles) add another dimension to the many outdoor activities of this area: snowmobiling, skiing, fishing and lake recreation on Palisades Reservoir, ATV, mountain biking, hiking, hunting, etc. Wildlife abound in this area--from Petunia the Skunk to elk/deer/moose and bear. All of the trees we have planted on our lot have been creatively pruned by the deer who call our lot their favorite dining-out spot. The annual snowfall in this area can exceed 500 inches.
My husband and I are retired teachers and are year-round residents. We love it in the summer when all the snowbirds return, but we also love the winter months when the town loses its summer folks and our mountain becomes a winter wonderland. The snow drifts straight down, and the trees shed extra snow weight in mini avalanches. Then the sawdust flies in my husband's shop, and several of the beautiful wood turnings find their way down to my quilting studio!

My mother and grandmother were quilters; they spent many winter hours hand quilting on a frame my father made and set up in our farm house.

|4 placemats and napkins... all lined!|
Some of my favorite fabrics have been from the Henry Glass collections. I used a Henry Glass fabric book panel named "Why" to make a quilt for our grandson, and liked it so much that I made a second baby quilt! (You can see the "Why" quilt on my blog: http://tetonnuggets.blogspot.com/2015/01/stash-report-week-2-2015-11015.html

The table runners, placemats, aprons, fabric baskets, and basket liner were all lined.
What a fun project this has been! The Country Cuisine collection by Isabelle Biche lends an air of spring to any kitchen, reminiscent of soft breezes, fragrant flowers, lush green grass.
"A sailor went to sea, sea, sea to see what he could see, see, see." Such are the tales of the Bed Time Rhymes collection by Delphine Cubitt, which also includes a visual representation of Little Miss Muffet, Little Jack Horner and a cast of characters from the poems we will love forever. Delphine is an English artist who works from her garden studio at her home in the beautiful surroundings of the Peak District in England. Delphine is really excited to be designing children's fabrics, "I love designing for children, I draw inspiration daily from my three, very funny, little boys!"
