Meet Debi!

Good Morning!

While vending at the Dallas Quilt Show, I had the great pleasure of meeting Debi, a fellow quilting enthusiast who loves to share her creative process through her blog, Quilting With Debi.  I've had so much fun the past few weeks keeping up with what she's been working on and checking out some adorable grandkid pics too!  Who doesn't love a chubby-cheeked baby!? 

We've sponsored a cool giveaway over on her blog!  She's even giving you MULTIPLE ways to enter!  Head over to her blog,, to read about how to enter and you could win this:

A Gypsy Caravan Stash by Amy Butler Fat Quarter Set (12 Fat Quarters total)
and a pattern card by Villa Rosa Designs! 

All you'll need is a little bit of solid and you are on your way to a gorgeous quilt top!  Oh, and we are offering a special discount code for her readers too!  Head over there for your code!  (Discount code is not valid on sale merchandise, monthly clubs or gift know...the typical stuff!) 

I hope everyone had a fabulous Mother's Day!  I know I did!  Just to let you know what's happening in the studio this week, we are working on some children's clothing that utilizes elastic thread for shirring!  Exciting stuff!  We'll be doing a video tutorial on this so if you've ever been too afraid to sew with elastic thread, WATCH the video!  It's easy!  We are using Pink Fig patterns and the designer, Chelsea Andersen, likes to use this elastic thread a lot and for good reason!  It's just super cool!  We are also hoping to get this ugly stool thing straightened out!  A "discussion" took place over the weekend.  I am hoping to have an update for you by Wednesday....we still have not come to a meeting of the minds.  Thursday, I am teaching my first class at The Scrappy Quilter here in Schertz!  This is a new shop that has opened up and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be teaching again!  New fabric is coming this week, we are getting ready for the Abilene Quilt much going on! 

Have a WONDERFUL week!
