Quilting Friends (and Mom) are the BEST!

Would you like to win some fabric? If so, click here for my current giveaway! I have so many thank yous to put out here!

Mom let me use her Bernina since I have so many custom orders. It's old, maybe from the 70s, but what a solid machine! I am so impressed with it. And so very thankful for its use.


My friend and cousin Marie, who also quilts and is part of A Dozen Quilters, found this quilt in a building they own and GAVE it to me. Wasn't that so sweet? She said she thought of me because of the little dogs. We have had three different Westies over the years, currently Starla. It's beautifully made and hand quilted. Thank you Marie. I would have kept it, but you are always so generous.


My friend Jenny, also part of A Dozen Quilters, and I did a little fabric exchange. Here is what she sent me. Does she think I like pink? Well I do. I couldn't even fit it all in one picture. Thanks so much Jenny. I love it.

Since my mom lent me her machine, I got a couple of custom orders finished. One was for a coloring bag in lime green, the limier the better.


Another is for the Henny Penny apron.

I have lots more to go. But I'm so happy to have a machine again. Thanks everyone, for everything.
Love, Melissa

oh my word! Melissa I did not realize I sent you 80% of pink fabrics!! Honestly, I was just going for fabrics I thought you would like...not necessarily pink!! But Im glad you like them!!

If Marie is handing out quilts like that, can I be next in line??
