She has a great tutorial the 6 inch block on the side is different on all the barns. So cute.
This is a project my youngest daughter and I did for a friend having a baby. A quilt and a bag to match. My daughter pieced the cute quilt and I did the quilting and the bag. Such a fun project and the young mother loved it.

New Pattern Giveaway

Oklahoma Twister Pattern

I designed this pattern a  few years ago and I made the one I showed on the last blog. I gave the pattern to a friend and her mother made the one above and I think they liked it so much that they have made like 3 more. It is such a simple each quilt and fun to do. I really didn't think that it was a fancy enough quilt to sell the pattern. But, Sew Cal Gal recommended that I do the pattern up and sell it so I am launching the pattern today with a giveaway. Its Mothers Day tomorrow and what better way to celebrate than a giveaway.;) You can also buy it from .

Just leave a comment about what style of quilting you like most.

I know I prefer piecing. I never seem to get my applique to look very professional (my OCD shows through, if it isn't perfect it is awful) and I don't even want to go there.  Paper piecing puts me in a foul mood (trust me, you don't want to be around) because I skimp to much on the fabric (really hate to waste good fabric) and end up having to take it out again and again. I love piecing, when the corners and points turn out nice it makes it worth all the effort. You know the feeling when every thing comes together.....yes it is a good feeling.

Tell your friends, the more people the merrier and I may give away more than one pattern. Barb over at Bejeweled Quilts is also giving away a copy of this pattern.....OOPS almost forgot to tell you when I am choosing a winner. How about next Saturday? I seem to get to busy during the week, I still have to go to work  everyday and it is garden season again. Have a great weekend and a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.
