I have the winner from the Valentine’s hop.

Congrats to Feathered Nest Studio, you’ve won the fat quarter bundle of MonaLuna fabrics from Lima Sews!

Great idea! A favorite childhood craft of mine was definitely building miniatures for my dolls! Little furniture, little dishes, houses, etc. Thanks for the chance to win

I also have some info on a Quilt Along that will start Feb 18th!

I designed a free quilt pattern for RJR fabrics new line by Mary McGuire called “Cold Spring Dreams”.   Available in March of 2013

The quilt is called “Orbit” and finishes at 60 x 60.  A great snuggle quilt size!   It can also easily be increased to bed size by adding a few extra rows.

I’m increasing my sample, below,  to a king size to use in our master bedroom.

The quilt along will run for 6 weeks starting on Feb 18th and closing on April 1st.

The full PDF pattern will be available on Feb 18th, so you will be able to move ahead of schedule if you’d like!

I will be sewing along with you using the “Cold Spring Dream” line and you’ll have a chance to win some for yourself at the close of the sew along.

You, of course, can use whatever fabric suits your fancy!   I think the design would be striking in all solids too.

I had a fabric photo shoot this morning to show you how beautiful the colors are!

I hope you’ll consider joining in.  The quilt is simple to put together, so it should be a fun and relaxing time!
