My friend, surprised me with a bucket of dahlias from her garden.  They make me smile every time I walk into my kitchen.  Thanks, Liz!

September Giveaway- Passion Flower Pattern and Batik Fat Quarter

The giveaway for September is an applique pattern by Sylvia Pippen.  We carry a large collection of Sylvia's Sashiko designs on our website.  But Sylvia also has a few applique patterns.  I think this one is really pretty and I just happen to have a batik fabric that is perfect for the flowers.  This pattern is for those who enjoy hand applique and embroidery.  It makes a 27 x 37 inch wall quilt.   You'll need a little more fabric, but the fat quarter will get you started on the leaves and flowers.

The winner will be selected by random drawing on October 1st.
