Sweet and Simple




This is the Sweet and Simple quilt I designed a couple of years ago.  It is presently being re branded with my new logo, and basically being redone so that it will sell much more economically!  Last evening we had our quilt group gathering up at Elaine's Quilt Block  Several in our group have made this quilt and adapted it to their family.  Two more came completed last night...it really is quite an accomplishment. ' Happiness is Quilting' a wonderful quilt store in Texas, entered their Sweet and Simple in a quilt show and won the blue ribbon for it! 
I've started a new pieced winter quilt with applique.  I'm finding time to go through my ideas files.  When I come up with some inspiration, I write it down, sketch it out and file it a way.  I'm just reminding myself that the fall quilt market in Houston is fast approaching!

  5. I just wanted to tell you that this quilt, Sweet And Simple, is my favorite quilt of all time. I purchased the pattern awhile back and have it on my list to start as soon as I get done with some 'have to' quilts. It is gorgeous!
