Chocolate Bon Bons

I'm betting the title of this post got your attention if you love chocolate even half as much as I do!  Chocolate Bon Bons is the name of my quilt that's in the current issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine. 

I know subscribers have received their magazine so shops should receive their shipment soon.  If you'd like a kit you can order one at Sew Graceful Quilting. 

Like me, you probably have your favorite blogs you check out regularly.  Imagine my surprise last night when I checked in with Nancy in Montana and read she liked my quilt.  I had to read her blog entry to my husband.  Here's a link to her blog is you'd like to keep up with her.

I've finished several small projects.  This little Halloween pillow was quick and fun to stitch.  I finished it with a zipper so I will be able to change it with the seasons.

I made this sheep and blanket (the blanket isn't finished quite yet).  Sew Graceful Quilting is offering it as a block of the month.  It's not on the website yet but will be soon.  In the interim, you can call Darlene at 479-372-7403 to get your name on the list.

I'm trying to get some projects ready to take on my trip to Washington DC next week.  I'm very excited about visiting the DAR museum.  It's been on my "must visit some day" list for quite some time.  The only other time I visited DC was on a bus trip from Gettysburg.  We were able to see the highlights but 2 hours at the Smithsonian is just teasing a person!  Any other secrets I don't want to miss out on?

Primitive Quilts and Projects Fall Issue

I'm excited to hear what you think of the quilt I have in the fall issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects.  Those who know me know I usually slip a little brown into most quilts I make.  This one is no exception.  Since I can't post a photo of my quilt yet, I'll post a photo of the cover of the magazine.  Dawn Heese's quilt is on the cover - very fall looking.

Hope you have a nice July 4th holiday.  We don't have any special plans (every day is special) so will do our normal walk and run at the park, come home and sew.  Even though it's hot, I'm itching to start a wool project.........strange, huh?
