That quilt will look wonderful on your turquois wall, and you can leave it up for the winter, YEA. I jumped over to your website to look at the "Happy Holidays"s it....great idea!

I really like that cross word puzzle wall hanging! As a former English teacher, cross word puzzles are right up my alley! I am enjoying all the great quilt pictures on everyone's blogs today! Great fun!!

Terry: I love all your work - honestly I do! I really have to go get your Fat Quarter Fonts book - everytime I see a quilt with all those great letters, I just love it! [email protected]


Altho the others are pretty I so like your style much better and I'm with you on the "quilts looking like that for one pic only" deal. If it isn't the cat then it's the little Chihuahua making nests in my quilts and afghans.

Hope i can find time before Christmas to make these wonderful patterns Mary Ellen


Have your children count their blessings. Let them know it could be worse; it could be an aluminum tree!
You may be on your way to Buffalo, but I am as excited as kids are on Christmas Eve waiting for Santa; because I get to meet you in Rochester on Friday.


Wonderful quilts that you are sharing today. I did not know about your font book, I think I'll let Santa know it's on my wish list!


Oh man, I love this post. That Between Friends quilt? Do people ever sell those already made? That is gorgeous. It looks so difficult, though, but I love, love, love it! All the pictures were wonderful. Thank you.

I love your quilts and really like the turquoise and white. I loved the design of the quilt and think I would love it in red and white or cream or even that buttery yellow color of Fig Tree fabric. Thanks for sharing

okay - I have to tell you that I like your little tree!

Each blog I click on this morning makes me want to drop everything and make a Christmas quilt! I haven't any, but WOW! what a great boost to holiday decorating!


Love your quilts, expecially Happy Holidays. Like your bowl with candle and peppermints.


I love your posts, blogs, projects BUT you show us cool stuff so EARLY that I hunt around and it's MONTHS before I find it. OK I'm done whining...I FINALLY received FIRE ESCAPE in the mail...I have told ALL our LQSs to order it, bought my 5 yards and this weekend is mine all mine! Thanx for ALL you do.


Those tablescapes are beautiful, but nope... it isnt my table either - I wish. There are so many of us, it's pretty good to do a great buffet!! I haven't seen Fat Quarter Fonts, but looks like I will like it - I love the crossword puzzle!!


Adoro tus edredones, me Producen un hondo placer, espero pronto Convertirme en una gran Quilter, gracias por lo que compartes


I love your little lime green tree - it's precious!


I love the lime green tree. And of course the quilts. I bought the Fat Quarter Fonts book, haven't made anything yet but I'm planning on it before the year's end.


Great projects and table settings!!!

Buffalo, New York? I'm from south of Buffalo - hubby and I were each born and raised in a small town called Olean, New York. We were High School sweethearts and got married a year after High School (sorry- probably more than you wanted to know..LOL)

Last week I just finished a turquoise colored quilt from a Schnibbles pattern (by Carrie). I'll give it to our DIL for Christmas. It was totally out of my color range but making things that are "not me" is widening my horizon.......(my bottom is already wide enough.LOL)

You can never go wrong using Sandy's fabrics - who can say they don't just adore her lines? And, hey now, Lime Green is used more and more - you know - widening those horizons again.


I love your little quilt under the candy cane candle, so cute. I also really like the word search, so fun. And the butterfly trails is just beatiful!


Love the quilts, even if they aren't done :-) This has been such a fun week. You gals must be tired. 144 posts from 12 designers during 12 days!! Whew!


I loved seeing your quilts. Most of my quilts are just tops. I still love them

I really like your lime green tree.
I would love to see your Christmas table with the red Fiesta Ware. I just received a small box of Fiesta dished from my father's estate sale, but I haven't even looked inside it yet.


Thank you for sharing your quilts, I really liked them


I have the aluminum tree and blue glass ornaments from my childhood, and my youngest son also threatened to run away from home if I put it up. He was a teenager at the time and was mortified that his friends might see it! I did finally use it last year and my grandies thought it was the bees knees - they loved it!

Kids sure are very vocal about wanting things to stay the same, aren't they?


Hey I’ve been following your blog for a while now!!! I think that this might be something you would be interested in. Maybe you’d like to participate or just do a little post about it! I’d love to see it be a great book ☺ (P.S. I’m not getting anything for passing the message along!)

They posted on their blog:
I'm very pleased to organize the first-ever Quilter's Cookbook with recipes from quilters around the world. Everyone is welcome to submit a recipe, a photo of their favourite quilt and a story for inclusion in the Cookbook. The submission deadline is November 28, 2009.
The Quilter's Cookbook will be available for sale as a downloadable PDF file in early December 2009. The price will be determined based on the number of recipes submitted and the number of advertising sponsors.
The Cookbook is being created as a fundraising effort to help off-set some of the costs associated with running the Quilting Gallery site and to fund new community-based features planned for 2010. Please help support the community!
The theme for this Cookbook is "Quick and easy recipes, so we can get back to quilting!".


Love all your quilts and thanks for sharing your great ideas.


The charm pack of Sandy Gervais, is one of my favorites. I love how you made it.


Thank you for posting these past 12 days and sharing what you remember, how you decorate, and those things you enjoy most. I know Liz Lois from her shop in East Troy, so it was so nice to learn more about you (after I'd heard about you for ages!) I hope you have a wonderful holiday season surrounded by those you love.

I thought I left a comment on this last night, but don't see it... I really like the quilt from your Happy Hour book. After seeing the fabrics you are using, I am going to have to go on a search and rescue mission in the spare bedroom, looking for the book! I made that pattern for a relative going through cancer treatments. It was a quick quilt to make and looked masculine. What I like about that pattern and your Yellow Brick Road pattern is that they are realy nice quilts when they are done, the recipient is tickled to receive it, and although they are nice they don't look so formal that folks feel they can't use the quilt. They are the perfect patterns for quilts to make for people that need to wrap themselves in warmth and good wishes during a difficult time.


Terry - love the Between Friends pattern. Where can I purchase it??
