The Bag Ladies of the Fat Quarter Club went to Paducah for the upcoming quilt show. This isn't the best picture, husband was holding it, would have hung straighter on a rod, but you get the idea. I had so much fun making this quilt. The patterns are available at You can also do it as a BOM. We have it set up that way also. You can also purchase the whole set at one time and save $24.00!

I would like some feedback on my Chickadee Chatter Blog, so comment and tell me what you like about it, and I also want to know what you don't like about it. Don't be afraid to tell me what you think. What kinds of things do you like to see in a Blog? What things DON'T you like? I want to use your feedback to create a good have at it! Let's see what we can come up with!

It's Not Too Soon To Be Thinking About Easter!!

Hi everybody, it's been awhile. How y'all been??
We are in the middle of winter here in Minnesota
 and we have really had a nice mild winter so far, 
one week of really cold but other then that,
 the temps have been above zero.
 For Minnesota, that is good! We will take it!
Been working on some new ideas for Easter and
 spring and decided to share one with you.
 This one hasn't been stitched yet, but will be as soon
 as I pick out the colors of floss I will use.
 Do most of you use DMC floss? That seems to be
 the one that is most widely available. Was thinking
 of doing this one in the over dyed floss from Gentle Art
I would like to hear your opinions of what you like best.

Happy Stitching! Carol
