Bed and Breakfast


This is the lovely home where I stayed while visiting my BFF in Ohio. She offered for me to stay in her beautiful basement, which is almost like an apartment. We had plenty of room to spread out fabric, patterns and sewing machines. While I was there I thought I would take a few pictures of her quilts.

This is the quilt that my BFF made when she visited me several years ago. I taught her how to make this pattern, and she has not looked back ever since :-)

When we both met in Chicago for the Chicago Quilt Festival in 2007, we bought this Lori Smith pattern and the Judie Rothermel fabric and made this little quilt together.

I love how she has hers displayed.

This is her Peace on Earth, from last year's visit to Nashville AQS show.


And here is the quilt I made for her from my last visit to Ohio -

I love how Fallish this one looks. I am linking up with Sew and Tell because I always like to share quilts that I've finished :-)

Now, have you visited Inch Worm Fabrics? Jeanette is having a Grand Opening giveaway. She is the niece of Barb from Bejeweled Quilts by Barb. Barb is also having a giveaway that you will have to check out on her blog.

Also Sandy from A Legacy of Stitches is having a very sweet giveaway celebrating her 400th post. She's got some unique rules, so you will need to pay her a visit.

And my sweet friend Wendy is having her first giveaway. If you have never visited Ivory Spring, you are in for a real treat. What an amazing quilter she is. She was part of the 100 Blocks giveaway, but she is also having Giveaway #2. So go and sign up!

And last but not least, hop over to Larkspur Lane Designs. Sue is also a 100 Block featured designer, and she is giving away a copy of the latest issue.

I like to help my friends out when I can :-)

(p.s. I am adding one more fantastic giveaway to this post. Hawthorne Threads is having a wonderful giveaway that you need to check out!! You won't be sorry :-)
