Time is speeding by......day 8

 
 
 
My gift for today is the most recent Quilt Mania magazine.  This quilt entitled "Catch a Falling Snowflake" is designed by Dolores Storm for Lakadaisie Design.  This quilt is found on the cover of the issue.  It is absolutely charming, and I love it!


 
 
 
"Waiting for Santa" is the name of this adorable little stocking picture designed by Joan Grenke for Bits and Pieces by Joan.
 
 



 
 
Joy Grenke also designed this easily made table mat entitled "Joy".
 
 
 
 



  Michelle Yeo designed this lovely quilt made from the old traditional block called Pine Burr. The name she has selected for this quilt is called "Chester County".  Michelle took her inspiration from an old Pine Burr quilt from the 1800s.
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
This fabulous quilt is entitles "A is for Apple".  Laurie Simpson designed this spectacular work of art.  The center is appliqued and the border is pieced. I would love to make this.




 
This lovely quilt was designed by Petra Prins and made by Esther Paap for Petra Prins Patchwork and Quilting.  It has been named "Molly's Stars.  The fabric has come from the Molly B's collection by Marcus Brothers.
 
 
 

 
 
 
"Two Santa's" is the name given to this table runner by Kathi Cambell for Heart to Hand.  I'm certain you would enjoy making this project from wool.  There is always next year......

Today's gift goes to Lori Loff.  Send me your address please.:-)

    1. You gals who can't find the magazine, Barnes and Nobles usually have it or you might just go to the web site to order it. It is cheaper that way.
