Public Service Announcement–Lost or Stolen Quilt

Edit 4/8/2015 – The Quilt has been located!  As posted on Facebook by Vanessa Hill Fromm –

I just received an email from Pins and Needles that my quilt has been found. Woo hoo!!!!!!!!! They are sending it out today. I can’t thank you all enough for spreading the word. I honestly did not think I’d ever see it again. I will let you know when it is back in my hands!!!!!!

“Last weekend after the ORIGINAL Sewing & Quilt Expo in Cleveland, Ohio, my Potpourri quilt went missing. I had lent it to a Pins and Needles in Middleburg Heights, Ohio and it went missing after the show when they had a third party pack up their booth. I guess they thought it would turn up in one of the boxes and I only learned about it on Thursday, April 2. I am devastated as I now need to make another sample for Quilt Market in Minneapolis. This pattern is one of my biggest sellers. If anyone sees this quilt, it is mine. I have not sold it, and I have not given it to anyone. Please share this with anyone you can.”

Happy Stitching!

Friday Finds–04/03/2015


I’ve been busy this week.  There are a number of projects I have piled all around my sewing room.  I can’t believe I’m still finding projects I want to do!  But here are a few that may, one day, find their way to my To-Do List.

  • Citrus Patch Throw – How about making something summery?  All People Quilt (dot) com shares this throw in Spring/Summer colors which is 65” square.

Question:  Do you like Square Throws or Quilts.  I think I prefer them rectangle, but this one is cheery.
