Today's heat makes me
think of AFRICA!
One article I read
claimed that non-Africans most often think of the SAVANNAH when they
think of Africa, and I am no different!
Check out our AFRICAN
INFLUENCED fabrics department for a variety of textures &
continue to ADD FABRIC to the HOLIDAYS department too.
While Winter fabrics
look somewhat out of place today, there are many of you who are smart
enough to know that staying inside the air conditioned house working
on WINTER PROJECTS keeps you cool now and you'll keep your cool this
Holiday season with timely, finished projects that will warm the
hearts of friends & family this CHRISTMAS!
Reduce stress twice by
sewing now! :)

Designer Diane McGregor,
has renamed my version of ASIAN
I liked her design, but
when I got to the appliqué circles, I was reminded of
"moons", which led me to "moon over mountain", an
old, classic quilt block, and next thing I knew, I was cutting wedges
out of my circles which totally changed the design!
I started with a custom
assortment of 10-inch SQUARES which we cut from some of our ASIAN
FABRICS. Diane has customized her pattern to explain my
techniques, and you can only get it from me. :)

PATTERN ONLY here:
