New Patterns

 I am so excited that
Marmalade cut goods are in stores now
 and yardage will be arriving soon...and...

 My 3 new patterns are available now!

The Cotton Way Candy pattern has a table topper, coasters and a cupcake pin cushion.
All very fast and easy to put together.

The pincushion can be put on a ramekin to give it a sweet little base.

The coasters are 6" x 6" and are so much fun to hand stitch.

The table topper is quilted as you stitch the curves and can be arranged
 in so many ways to make different designs. 
It measures 35" x 35". 

Baskets of Marmalade is the perfect Layer Cake project. 

The baskets are so fun and fresh and the pinwheels give it lots of movement.

I added a very small border on the edge to give it a double binding look. 

Two Hour Table Topper

I introduced this new pattern a few weeks ago available as a PDF download.  It is now also available as a paper pattern.  For those of you that didn't see that, let me tell you, yes, you can piece all of these Table Toppers in two hours or less.  The pieces are large and so quick to piece together.  This pattern is also great for a baby quilt.

Star Table Topper

The New Patterns are available in our shop today!
All available as paper pattern or PDF download.

Have a great week,

Life is Sweet

This is my new grand baby Cohen.  
Being a Grandma has to be one of the sweetest things in life.
Those of you that are Grandmas know exactly what I am talking about.
It was always my favorite age with my kids and now my 13 grandchildren.
You get to snuggle and love and kiss on them and enjoy all the sweet
things about newborn babies. Look at his little feet hanging out of the blanket...
...and his little hands are clinched so tight his knuckles are white...
...and don't new babies smell soooo good!

For each of my grandchildren I make a special quilt to take to them for our very first meeting.
For Cohen I made my Scrumptious quilt in the colors of his nursery.
His parents have worked so hard to make it look just right, 
of course it does.


Now that I am hooked on Snuggles, 
I always put that on the back to make it extra soft and cozy.

Ok. Just one more...I get to do that, I am the grandma!

Ahhh... so sweet.

So, if you have a new baby or grand baby on the way and want to stitch up a quick and easy quilt for them, this is a really fun one to do.  It uses jelly roll strips and has a soft raw edge, so it goes together in a snap. And if you don't even want to get out of your PJ's to run to the store, my daughter Tracy, has some kits over in her shop, so check them out here.

Wish my new grandson didn't live quite so far away!
I need more snuggle time!
