New Patterns, New Babies and a New Year!



First of all, I am a grandma again! My newest granddaughter came almost a month early and surprised us all. She was just over 5 pounds and so much fun to snuggle! I just had to share a picture along with my new patterns. (It's a grandmas prerogative to brag a little bit right?)

Second of all, We are so very excited to announce our new

Fresh and Fancy Table Runner Club for 2010!

A fresh and fancy table runner for each and every month of the year. It is our fourth series (and of course our favorite so far). Each pattern has a Fancy side with more piecing and/or applique, and a Fresh side, simple and fast using the left over fabric from the front. It's like two table toppers in one pattern. Each runner is approximately 21" x 42". The perfect size for almost any table.

I have used some of my very favorite Moda fabrics for each of the runners. (I may a little biased, but Moda is the best!) January - June are available now and July - December will be available in March.







You can join a Fresh and Fancy Club at your local quilt store, or if there is not one in your area and you want to join online, head on over to Fat Quarter Shop to sign up. Kimberly and the gals have all the fabric kits and patterns to get you started.

To celebrate our 20th Anniversary (yes 20 years!) we are giving away an exclusive Fresh and Fancy Club Membership to a blog reader. The winner will receive the entire years worth of Table Runner patterns as well as a bonus prize, a January fabric kit to get started. To enter, make a comment and tell me what project you are going to start the new year off with. The giveaway ends at midnight on Sunday Dec. 13th, so check back on Monday morning to see who the winner is.

Stop back by for more 20 year Anniversary Celebrations throughout the year. You won't want to miss out, it is going to be alot of fun!

  6. Your granddaughter is a sweetheart, I love the headband! My new year's project will be to hand quilt my embroidered Christmas quilt made from the block of the month patterns from Gail Pan. I haven't hand quilted in ages!

  7. Congratulations on the new Grandbaby, she sure is a cutie!

    Happy 20th anniversary! It must have been a wonderful journey. In the New Year, I am hoping to finally start a quilt for myself. I only started quilting in May/June and so far have made four quilts for other people but nothing for Alex and I. A lovely blog friend just sent me some fabric that I've been eyeing as a gift and it will definitely go into something for me!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Wow! That's a great prize :)

    I'm going to start the new year by finishing my first quilt for me! It's a pattern I made myself and I love it!

    Congrats on the new baby too <3

  9. Can a non quilter win this? I would love to give it to my sister. I do love quilts and always read your blog and your daughter's. I also love grand daughters. Your new one is precious.

  10. What an absolutely gorgeous granddaughter you have. Congrats. Congrats on 20 years as well. That is truly an accomplishment in todays economy. I plan on getting some tops that I have for our church's Hugs Ministry quilted so they are ready to go to kids in crisis. Thank you for sharing this wonderful give-away with us. Those table runners look like a lot of fun to do and use every day. Take care and God bless, Cory

  11. Congratulations on the new grand-baby! Adorable! I have half the blocks completed for a quilt using Simple Abundance. It will be my first project to finish in the new year!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow, a whole year's worth of table runner patterns - I seriously don't know how you pattern designers do it! For the New Year, I've resolved to cut into my fat quarter towers. I think I'm going to pull out the Mistletoe Manor stack from way back when and start making some dresden plates.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Congradulations on 20 years! I have so many projects stacked up, that it is hard to decide where to start. After my January Schnibbles and my January Pennslyvania Dutch Block, and my January Fresh and Fancy table runner, I think that I will work on a quilt using Moda's "Hello Betty". Have a wonderful Holiday!

  14. I love these table runner patterns! And I love your giveaway question...I always like to start the new year off with a project just for me and just for fun after spending most of December working on gifts. I haven't decided on this year's project yet, but it will have applique in it! I love the YoYoVille quilt in Simple Abundance and may choose that one...it has applique and yo-yo's!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I would love to win the table runner patterns. They are adorable and we just got a new dining table that they would look great on - and actually fit on (our old one was tiny!) My project will be the sassafrass pattern from Camille. I have had it for a couple of months and just found the perfect fabric to make it with.

  16. Congratulations on the new granddaughter. She's a cutie! I haven't decided yet what project I'm going to start for the new year. I have lots of projects already started so may try and finish some of those up before I start something new. Love the tablerunners.

  17. Wow, 20 years! Thats awesome. I am planning to start a quilt using Simple Abundance after Christmas. But I am so excited about it that I don't know if I can wait that long. This table runner series is such a fun idea!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Congrats on the new baby and the anniversary! How exciting.

    After Christmas I'm going to start working on a scruffily quilt from Moda Bake Shop using Simple Abundance. I have all of my fabric ready to go, I just need some time!

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  19. After many quilts for family, friends etc...my resolution for the New Year....is to finally make a quilt to put on my bed. I even feel a little guilty!!! Love your blog....have been a fan of your patterns for years - Thanks for sharing your talents!

  21. I have to work on my husband nd son's quilts as soon as all my Christmas projects are done. I am tired of sharing MY quilt with them. Next I have to figure out how to keep the cats off of it!!

  22. Congrats on your newest reason to smile! I will start out the new year by getting back to my languishing king size quilt. I would like to see it on my bed before the cold season ends! Would love to win your awesome giveaway!

  24. Congratulations! My mom's second grandson (my son) turned 8 months today! I can't believe it.

    I am starting the new year making a quilt for him (a cute off-set box pattern), and a cameo quilt for me (though I will probably end up gifting it!). I'm excited though :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am making a quilt for my daughter who is 15 months old. It is my first ever quilt so fingers crossed it actually comes out. I am tempted to join the table runner club but DH would kill me as we have just bought a new house and have all the associated costs that go with it.
    Your new granddaughter is lovely. Congratulations on her arrival and 20 years of Cotton Way

  26. Your new grand baby is adorable! Congratulations on becoming a Grandma again! I also want to Congratulate you on your Twenty Year Anniversary! Wow! I hope to put together a quilt for my family, in the New Year. I traced my family's drawings and embroidered them and I will mix them with some scrappy monkey wrench blocks. I would love to win your lovely designs. I could use some table runners for my house. Thanks for the chance to win!

  27. ohh. December 13!! My son's birthday and also happens to be the receipent of my new years quilt I plan to start...he is moving into a twin size bed and needs a big boy quilt!!

  29. Oh Olivia is so cute, I've had my own darling Olivia in July this year. My 1st project for the new year will be to sew my girls some new doll quilts and bedding!

    Have a great Xmas and New Year :o)

  30. Congratulations Bonnie on the beautiful new granddaughter! In the new year, I am going to start on a brown and pink quilt called Stars over Fort Sumner.

  31. I'm on a table runner kick and would love to win all your fresh and fancy patterns! I'm starting the year off with a birthday quilt for my mom.

  32. I am going to start with a quilt, I think. I have several stocked up! What a great club you offering...cute, cute, cute runners.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Jan is going to be spent finishing up projects that Christmas put to the back burner. Not that I am going to neglect new projects. I have decided 2010 is going to be a year of working on technique, so I will be doing several BOTM's (mostly the free online ones many have started already) and Jan 1'st Iam going to begin the Calander Quilt. I have a bunch of stuff cut out for it already. No real projects are planned unless someone decides to have a baby, or get married, or if something jumps out and says "YOU HAVE TO MAKE ME!"

    ReplyDelete
  34. I will be starting the new year by making 2 baby quilts for a co-worker who is expecting twins. She said they are both girls. I really hope so since the fabrics I picked are very girly.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Bonnie, I love your table runners. I really like that they are reversable, awesome. I'm a Moda girl too, they have the best fabrics. In fact I couldn't resist getting a Simple Abundance fat quarter pack, I love it. I'm thinking of starting the new year doing the Cameos quilt by Fig Tree Quilts. Sherri at A Quilters Life has made several of them and has hooked me with them. I have honey buns and I'm ready to get going on a Cameo quilt. Your little granddaughter Olivia is so cute.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Well, let's start with the REALLY important stuff first...what a beautiful baby. She is just so precious and I want to know where she got all that hair??? Both my daughters had shiny little heads till they were two ***sigh***. Congratulations she really is a keeper. Congrats on your 20th year too. Wow, where does the time go? I know what my first project of the new year will be. I just bought the fabric for it last Tuesday at my final Thimbleberries BOM class. I found the 'Simple Abundance' collection standing in my way as I walked back to the classroom and it was love at first sight. I had all of the ladies that worked in the shop cracking up because I walk with a cane and I was trying to carry at least 8 bolts of fabric to the counter...yes they help, oh they were only too happy to help because I went back for more, LOL. Not sure exactly what pattern I will use yet but I'm certain I bought enough for more than one quilt. Lord!!! I know I did. So, there you have it, whatever it is, it will be done in Simple Abundance. But I'm gonna have to order some online cause they were out of the brown, green and red floral tone on tones for me to use with all the other glorious prints. So, thanks to you and Camille for my new stash and I'm sure the ladies at Sew and Save in Clearfield Utah thank you also. *wink* Oh, and thank you for this fun, generous giveaway, so exciting. I can't imagine having a years worth of projects lined up. Good Luck to EVERYONE!!!

  37. Hi Bonnie! I signed up for the Fat Quarter Shop Fresh & Fancy club on the day Kimberly first posted it! I can hardly wait to start (as though I need another project!). I love the new look--and can't wait to see them firsthand!

    Thanks for your creative talents--so wonderfully shared with your daughter Camille!

    PS - We are expecting grandbabies #11, 12 and 13 in the next few months--isn't this fun!?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Too fun! I'm going to start my new year with making an apron for myself!!!

  39. Love those table runners!! For the new year I am going to start a quilt for my daughter made from African themed fabrics I have been collecting. She visited S. Africa while she was in college....

    Great give away! Thanks for the chance to win, and hug the baby for me!

  45. What a way to end a year. Congratulations on your many blessings. I have been making just quilts and recently started making bags and purses. My goal in the upcoming year is to start making more than just quilts such as table runners and wall hangings. This drawing is just what I need! The patterns are cute and the club is a great idea. Keeping my fingers crossed.....!

  46. Congratulations on your grandaughter!! Always good to hear news like that. 20 years too is a major milestone, I hope you have at least 20 more!!! My New Year plans are for a spider web quilt, and I want to play with the idea of mixing crochet squares or circles with fabric. Perhaps hand sewing them together with heavy cotton threads.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm going to start of with a BOM from this last year. Why start now, when you can start later. Yep, that's my motto.

  48. I love table runners, and yours look like quick and pretty projects. I'm going the start the new year by finishing up a Bonnie Hunter Double Delight mystery that I started last New Years.

  49. Congratulations on the new edition to the family! I'm going to finish the pretty autumn colored lap quilt that I started this summer :)

    I've got a lovely cherry wood table but have never thought of making table runners for it. Sadly, the table is normally hidden by tablecloths so thanks for the giveaway chance (I hope it can be posted to the UK!)

  50. What a darling baby! I can't believe you put her down long enough to take a picture. That must have been difficult. :)
    I have decided that 2010 is the year that I finally finish the quilt I have been hand quilting off and on forever. So, I think I will kick off the new year with that. (Unless, of course, I get distracted again by some new project!)

  51. Your granddaughter is gorgeous. I would love to start the new year with one of your table runners. It looks like a great club. I am moving over December and I have packed a couple of kits to sew as soon as I have time once we are settled. They are from Fern Hill designs and are beautiful

  57. Congratulations on your new granddaughter! She is precious and those eyes!! I love your table runner of the month series and that you have two sides to choose from. My next quilt will be a simple pattern using beautiful fabric for a neighbor who just lost her daughter to cancer. I can't think of anything more comforting than a quilt. Thanks for the give-away!

  58. Congrats on 20 years! A generous giveaway from a very lucky grandma:) To start the new year I will be finishing some projects - a basket quilt that I'm making for myself is at the top of the list. Good luck everyone. Best wishes for many more years of creative sharing, Bonnie.

  59. Thanks so much for a great give-a-way. I am having a hard time deciding where to start. I just finished organizing all of my projects...Moda of course...I have several of your patterns and love them! Probably pick one out of the hat since they are all spectacular. Two of my friends and i have several projects we have chosen together and I think one of those would be the best way to start off the new year, with quilty friends.

  60. Congratulations! She is adorable. My biggest project to work on in the new year is the big pile of unquilted tops I have in my sewing room. And all of the UFO's that I vowed last year to finish! Karen in Breezy Point

  64. You are blessed with abundance in your life! I too am a grandmother and very thankful.
    I am a beginner quilter and love small projects. In January I will make a couple of Chritstmas runners, pot holders or tea cosies to jump start next year's giving. I would love to make some of your tablerunners - the choice of patterns and colours are so appealing!
    Keep warm and treasure each day. Edna

  75. Oh my, what a cutie! Congrats on that beautiful granddaughter. And congrats, too, on your 20th anniversary!!
    Before I start a new project next year, I'm determined to finish my "Wallflower" quilt ~ it's just for me (hey, with my initials on it it isn't too easy for my family & friends to "steal" it from me ;o) ). It's half way quilted since September (I planned it as a birthday gift to myself...) and needs to be finished. And then? Hmmm...endless possibilities...maybe a little wallhanging out of a S.A. charm pack ;o) to warm me up...
    I also dream of designing my own stitchery/patchwork quilt...I already have the fabric (Rouenneries) - now I only have to transform thousand ideas into a quilt...
    Thanks for sharing so generously. I couldn't decide which table runner I like most...it's so cool that they're reversible!
    Happy Holidays,
    Julia

  80. Congratulations on both counts!! I LOVE the reversible table runners, what a cool idea! I'm hoping to start the New Year with baby quilts!

  81. Table runners sound great to me - finishing one is an achievable goal. My first project for 2010 will be finishing up a 2009 block of the month thru a local quilt shop. Then I think I need to work on unfinished projects. Last year was stash-busting, next year is UFO's.

  86. Awesome! My plans for 2010... is to finally get working on my OWN quilt for MY bed. It's going to be a queen size pinwheel and I can't wait for the holidays to be over so that I can start it. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I guess I would be tradional, and start with January or maybe December and work my way backwards...maybe I would meet somewhere in April that way and have all the other months ready in time to actually use!! I always seem to have bigger plans than actual end results.... but with table runners my plans might be completed early !!Love your patterns!!

    ReplyDelete
  88. My new years project is a quilt for my oldest daughter's bed. She is 5 now, and needs her very own very girly quilt for her big girl bed. I have four girls, so my goal is make them all a quilt, but it may not be this year. I would love to do this club to get a chance to learn new skills in a quick project! (Sometimes quick projects are all I get done around here...)

  93. What a lovely little grand-daughter! Congratulations! I love your new table-runner designs. Today I went to see the American Legacy quilt exhibit at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin and loved it. My first project next year will be an Irish-chain small quilt using some scraps from my sister-in-law's wedding quilt. Good luck to me with the drawing!

  94. My almost 7 year daughter has been asking Santa for a sewing machine this year. She will be getting one, so my next project will be teaching her how to sew. We plan to start with some simple pillow cases and then work on some comfy pajama pants!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Congratulations on the arrival of your beautiful new granddaughter! I love the idea you've come up with for the table runners..simple on one side, more detailed on the other, would love to win the patterns! As for my first project of the new year, I just found out that a friend is expecting her second son in late spring, so will be making a quilt for their new baby. I made the Fresh Apple Tart for my nephew's baby girl this past summer, looking at the "Made with love from Grandma" baseball themed quilt for my friend's baby, seems perfect!

  96. Oh WOW! I love your new table runner patterns. Great fabrics and designs. I am planning to start a quilt called Tail Feathers in January. It is by one of my favourite Australian designers Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches. I am a teacher and will be on summer holidays so hope to really get stuck into this project.

  97. I have been making quilts, blankets, and bags for all my friends and family. My poor hubby has only received a pillowcase from me so I think my first project of the year will be a quilt for him. :)

  101. Congratulations on the new grand-baby! So Adorable! And on 20 good years!
    I've decided to quilt a ton of baby quilts and keep a stockpile ready for all the expectant mothers that I know of and also a few extras just in case!. I love to be ahead of the game. A hand made quilt is always so much nicer to receive.

  107. I am going to start the year off with something made with BLUSH! A quilt, a purse, an apron, a tablerunner...not sure yet but hoping it will be with BLUSH that I find under the tree.

    I have been away from quilting for some time and am anxious to get started again. I plan on starting the year off with something fun like a table runner, something that will get me back into the swing of it!!

  114. I plan to make some baby booties with the new line "Birdie" from Moda as a baby shower gift and then will make the Bunny pattern by Cotton Way that has been in my stash for about 6 months now. I don't have much time for quilting right now, but I am sure if I won the Fresh and Fancy Table Runner patterns I would find the time. Thanks for the giveaway and Good Luck to everyone!

  116. Beautiful baby!! I'm thinking I may need to start the new year with the a la mode pattern by Camille. I've been eyeing that one for awhile now and have some fabric just waiting for a good project.

  117. Love all the new patterns! I have enjoyed your daughter's blog as well as yours'! Thanks for the chance at the give away! I will be starting my daughter's bridal veil in January. She gets married in March. Once the wedding is over then it will be time to work on 2 baby quilts for my 2 grandbabies coming and a few table toppers and runners as gifts! Looking forward to using your patterns! :)

  118. Your year has been exciting! I am not sure what I will begin next year with, I'm not finished with Christmas gifts for this year!!! Hopefully they will be done and wrapped for this year! I have a quilt for my Aunt Judy that is all really bright fabrics for a schoolhouse quilt, maybe I will start with that one. Best wishes for your twentieth year, my husband and I will celebrate twenty years of marriage this year, I guess we both started great things 20 years ago! I have done a few of your topper patterns and love them! Thanks for your great work!

  119. I hope I'm not too terribly late.. I'm banking on the East coast time thing! Hee!!
    The project I'm working on is a quilt for a friend's book. She has a deadline so I need to get busy!!

  120. Oh darn, just read the email I got today from The Fat Quarter Shop telling about this giveaway and it seems that has ended. Oh well, I still had to comment because this sounds like an awesome club. I only wish that I could spend the money but a new roof very badly needed and an upgrade to our electrical in the house takes precedence unfortunately.

    I am actually starting the new year out making, strangely enough, table runners for everyone on my list. I developed trigger finger in my thumb preventing me from doing any sewing at all back in October so I've not been able to do anything. I hope to get this taken care of after the first of the year and then I'm starting to make table runners for everyone so that by July I will hopefully be way ahead of my holiday lists for next year already.

    Good luck to everyone which got their entries in on time. That's an awesome prize for sure.

  121. I know the giveaway is over, but I jsut wanted to congradulate you on 20 years of beautiful pattern making. Here's to 20 + more years!

  122. Wow, twenty years! You must have started when your children were small. I would LOVE to win your set of 12 table runner patterns.

    Now for your question. I'm so glad it's an easy one! I will be starting the New Year off making a quilt for my brother and his fiance who are getting married in April. I have the fabric and I'm itching to get started on it. But I have a few other things that have to be finished first. I hope my self control can hold out.
