Charming Baby Quilts  Remix Patterns and Sew Along
 It's a celebration of my book, Charming Baby Quilts!!!  I had so much fun making Baby size quilts from Charming Baby Quilts, I decided to see what they would look like as Big Quilts!!!  So I have remixed each of the 10 designs and shared free PDF downloadable patterns for making your Charming Baby Quilts into Charming Big Quilts!!!   And then, you can Sew Along with the fret Charming Baby Quilts Sew Along!!!   Join in making blocks from each of the quilts from the book and then sew them together in an adorable Charming Baby Sampler!!!   You can  see all about both here!!

Irish Chain Quilts Blog Hop
 It's a celebration of my very first book, Irish Chain Quilts!!!  Follow along as my amazing friends from blog land share their own Irish Chain Quilt blocks.  And of course, see all of the 15 quilts from Irish Chain Quilts.  With quilts from  Twists on Tradition, Modern Patchwork, Improvisational Chains, and Appliqued Chains there really is something for everyone!! You can  see it all here!!

The Simply Charmed Blog Hop
 Isn't Valentines Day great!!!  A day focused on telling those we love just how much they mean to us.  Fabulous!!!   And what better way to show someone you care than to give them something special made by you just for them!!  So that is why I asked some of my amazing friends from blog land to join me in bringing you the Simply Charmed Blog Hop.  10 days of Valentine tutorials, see them all here!!

Celebrate Mom - A Mother's Day Event
A week long event dedicated to quilty mom's answering the question "How do you do it all with kids??"  I thought it would be fun to have some of my good "mom/quilt juggling" friends come and visit and share some of their adventures in finding balance.   There are fun little stories, helpful little tidbits, and plenty of laughs :)  And . . . because dinner is always the hardest thing to have ready after a day of sewing, these ladies will also share their favorite go-to dinner recipe :) 

Pin It!
