I've been waiting for...

It's already March!
And Easter is around the corner. I have a very popular pattern of mine for this season. Since I started to publish the patterns, this one is flying out of the door especially before Easter! It's "Honeybun Basket".

This basket is perfect for an egg-hunt for little kids, or for gifts. It uses MODA's honeybun or 1 1/2" strips and a fat-quarter for lining. You can actually make 5 or 6 basket out of one honeybun roll. So make them for yourself, then for kids, grandkids, friends, neighbors, etc... I used clear plastic water bottle(one gallon size) as protector. Many people contacted me what brand I used, well it can be Crystal Geyser or Whole Foods brand clear ones. If you are experienced sewer, it only takes a couple of hours to make one. Enjoy!!!

There is a new fabric line from MODA that I've been waiting for long time. "Rural Jardin" by Kaari of French General. I had fat quarter bundle from fall market and made this Cathedral Window pillow with them. I will be teaching the classes at Prairie Queens Quilt Shop in March and June.

With Kaari's previous line "Rouenneries", I made this quilt "Desparate Journey". I showed you a part of this quilt before I entered PIQF. Guess what?? It was hung at the show and I'm very happy about the comments I heard from other quilters. Thank you!

I love these fabrics!!! They are my favorite! Thank you, Kaari. Thank you, MODA.

Happy quilting,
