Remember Sale

Today is a day for all of us to take a moment and be thankful. Thankful for all the men and women who have served, who are serving now, and those yet to come.  

Think about where we'd be if we didn't have those brave among us. Actually, I'd rather not think about that, but you see what I mean. 

Revel in your freedom today, tomorrow, and yesterday, and be thankful! 

I am not only thankful for those that serve, but I am also thankful to all my readers. I appreciate you every day! 

To honor both, I am doing a buy one get one FREE sale that begins now and will end at Midnight on June 1st.  

Head on over to my shop and take a peek ---> http://freckledwhimsy.bigcartel.com 

I have 4 patterns available right now. 

If you buy one, get one, use the code REMEMBER2013

If you buy two, get two, use the code 2xREMEMBER2013
Enjoy, and Much Love!!!

Fresh Modern Bee Finish ... Finally!!

Hello my lovelies!! 

It's always nice when we can revisit old friends, right? Ones that you've been meaning to reconnect with but time just keeps slipping away...  Then when  you actually put your foot down and do something about it and reconnect, you feel so good afterwards! 

The same is true with quilts.  UFO's... (Un-Finished Objects). Poor little things, sitting all alone in the closet or in a bag or at the bottom of a tote completely forgotten. If you listen carefully, you can hear them crying... well ok, maybe not but I bet they still feel bad ;)

A few months ago I pulled out a UFO that was from a quilting bee I was in, Fresh Modern Bee.  I had my fellow bee members make me half square triangle blocks using Sweetwater's Make Life line for Moda. I forgot how much I truly loved this line. I had pieced the top and pin basted and even began quilting.  Then other things popped up and it got set aside.  Again.

Until yesterday... I saw it sitting there and just had an itch to finish it.  So I did. 

Here she is, in all her splendor.... I heart her.. so much! Thank you to all my bee friends that made it possible!! 





Scrappy binding.... *swoon*


This is my little helper. Couldn't help but snap a shot of him! :)


Here is a close up of one of the blocks to show how I quilted it.  Just kind of a no bones about it meandering but instead of rounded edges I went with squared off edges. 


 I am so happy to have her done!! 

Thank you again to all my fellow bees!!! I heart you for helping me put this quilt together!

Much Love!!!

Kissing Booth * New Pattern Release

Hello my friends!!

Guess What?! 

Yes!! I have another pattern in my shop!! 

Let me introduce to you.... Kissing Booth!! 

***Note: Purchase Kissing Booth and one other pattern and get $4.50 off your order, now through June 1, 2013 at 12am. Use coupon code KISSINGBOOTH

Grab the pattern over at my shop (link in left sidebar), a Layer Cake or a Jelly roll, and some background fabric, and you'll have a new quilt in no time! 


This pattern comes together pretty quickly, and even though it looks like it is full of Half Square Triangles, it's not! There is not one single HST in this quilt.


One block is all this quilt is made up of. Just flip them around and your blocks look like they are kissing! Hence the name.. :)


My daughter thinks they look like kissing fish... I think she is right!


I love this shot!

The fabric I used in this quilt is Just Wing It by MoMo for Moda. I know it is an older line but I had it in my stash and wanted to use it because it is so striking! You could use any line and it would look fabulous!

If you make this quilt, I'd love to see it! Please feel free to add it to my Flickr Group HERE if you do make it! :)


Much Love!!!
