Good morning Monday. Perhaps if I say it several more times, I will make it happen. Good morning Monday. Having a hard time getting it all into gear this morning… so here are a few updates that I can send your way without being completely awake.
Good morning Monday. Still not working.
FABULOUS BLOCK OF THE MONTH OVER AT THE FAT QUARTER SHOP
… one of the designer blocks from the center of the quilt.
… a little peak of the one of the blocks and a bit of the outer border.
I just wanted to let you know about a great new project brought to you by the talented Miss Kimberly Jolly! A few months ago, I had the opportunity to design the finishing kit for the newest DESIGNER MYSTERY BLOCK OF THE MONTH for the Fat Quarter Shop. Kimberly creates one of these great block of the month projects every year and this time around she is using my upcoming collection, Strawberry Fields as the fabric for the quilt.
The theme… blooms & flowers, a whole garden of them! Lots of different blooms, each one designed by one of your favorite designers and the finishing kit designed by yours truly.
I wish I could show you more of the quilt… it was so much fun to design. I can tell you that its got… flowers [clearly], stems, leaves, sashings, borders and more flowers, big ones and little ones. Even though I can't show you more because it is after all a mystery, I can tell you that it's a good one. So much so, that I might be tempted to sign up for it myself even though I have never done a block of the month in my life!
Here is a quick pic of the quilt, with all of the designer blocks done, sewn up and ready for the quilter to do her magic.
You just might want to add you name to the growing list over there at the FQS and join in all that strawberry fun.
I have had so much fun reading all of your color comments! Thanks for sharing all of your favorites and your stories! However, I have to admit that I am having a bit of a hard time keeping up with all of you!
So we are going to draw one winner a day for the next several days just to give me a little extra time to keep reading all those wonderful comments!

You are in my favorites right there with both my daughter in-laws Blogs. I check all three several times a day to see if there are new pictures of the grandkids,themselves or Fig Tree fabric! In that order. I think that will cut down on your hits!
