Let's Get Quilting - June 29, 2015 Edition


Hello Monday!

It's a beautiful morning and time for another Let's Get Quilting giveaway. Congratulations to the winner from last week's giveaway, Kathy E.

School's out and it is time to be outside. Leanne Anderson's Clearwater Critters is a fun collection that reminds of the outdoors. Owls, birds, rabbits and yes, even skunks, are so sweet.




Good luck!

I have made two throws for christmas from christmas fabrics that I have had for several years now - that is about as close as I can bring myself to think about christmas this time of the year....I am usually one of those last minute makers.

Even if I don't plan ahead to make a Christmas gift, I usually do sew something and can be found finishing it up on Christmas Eve. I think it's becoming one of my traditions.

Just at the "thinking" stage. Thinking it is coming up, thinking I should start now so I won't be rushed, thinking I really should get serious sooner this year, that kind of thinking! lol
