Bernina is back...and a give away!!

Look what I pulled out and dusted off?  My faithful Bernina has been sitting idle for several months while I worked on my book.  Now that the book is submitted, she's back in place and ready to take on some projects. 

I have started working on items to sell at the Mennonite Heritage Center Pennsylvania German Folk Art Sale in December.  I am dying to make some new quilts for the show.  Last year, in addition to quilts, I made some small needle cases.  Remember these?  They were a big hit and sold out on the opening night.  I am playing around with some new designs for needle cases and will try to make sewing roll ups, too.


Now for the give-away.  One of my little quilts was recently published in Primitive Quilts and Projects.  This is a beautiful publication with so many charming projects.  The lovely editors at the magazine sent me some extra copies of the Fall 2013 issue and I would like to share two of them with you.  Just leave a comment by noon on August 7 and I will pick two winners.
