Looking forward to FNSI

Free 'Boo' pattern available at my website!
I am so looking forward to FNSI.  I'll be down at my mom's house at a mini quilt retreat with my mom and sisters.  It will be so much fun, a nice way to spend MEA weekend.  I'm hoping to be able to stay up late and get lots and lots done!  Then the following weekend I will be on a Quilt Retreat in Wisconsin!  Wow, two weekends in a row.... what will my boys at home think?  hmmmmmmmmmmm maybe I don't want to know that..... better stock up on some frozen pizza.

So in celebration of my two Quilt Retreats and FNSI, a "Trick or Treat" goodie from me, I am offering a FREE pattern for this adorable Halloween tea towel.  I'm in love with the yo-yo spider.  Just a cute little spider hanging from a "BOO" with candy corn.  Can't get anymore festive then that.  Unless of coarse you dress up to hand out the candy on "Halloween".....

and also....
don't forget, I have a giveaway still going on...

  1. I absolutely love all your blocks so far, I used a lot of the cotton club fabrics in my World War II quilt, I just really love the fabrics. Those reds and browns go so well with the shirtings.

  2. You can't pick just one! Great job..

  3. I really like Jumping Jack Blossom. Thanks for the great giveaway!
