April Seminole Sampler Row Available free all month

Have you been collecting the free Seminole Sampler Rows?  It's not too late to start if you want to begin.  This month is the Woven Star Row.  Isn't it gorgeous?! Think how pretty it would be in your own colors.  If you like these colors you can still get the fabric kit from Connect The for just $15 a month. And yes, Catch-up kits are available for Jan-March if you missed them.

There is still time to get the Seminole Sampler Bonus Block too!  I resend the newsletter on the 15th of April.  It has the link to the free row and the free bonus blocks.  (The free bonus blocks are only available to subscribers.)

Look at the rows my fabulous niece Krista made. She is my #1 pattern tester!

April is such a wonderful month!  Spring flowers, tree blossoms, and warm weather starting up.  I love it.  To celebrate April I designed a dandelion block for the continuing series of Deco Garden bonus blocks.

The applique is all raw edge machine applique done with fusible web.  There are a few more templates than usual in this block, but I just thought these dandelions needed a bit more fun.  You have to admit they are easier than the Thistle block!

The Dandelion Block 20 is available for purchase at Morning Glory Designs.

I have been traveling during March and April.

The end of March was the Annual Spring Retreat of the Quilting Beauties in Winslow AR.  What a fun and productive week with tons of sewing time and some great eye candy.  Here are a few of the show and tell quilts from the participants.

Wish I could post pictures of all the quilts because they were wonderful.

My thanks to all the incredible ladies I met in my travels to Denver CO, Liberal KS, Payson, Coolidge, Globe and Sedona AZ.  You really are great and I learn so much from each of you.  Thanks for allowing me to visit, teach, and lecture to your groups.  It was a blast.


  1. I am really enjoying your Seminole Sampler. I have the first two rows done and I am hoping to get the third one finished soon. I am using solids and my mom is using batiks.
    Thanks for sharing the information about the blog hop, that looks like fun.
    I bet your trip to Arizona was great. I was born in there, but now live in Montana.
    Thanks again!


I'd love to know what you think! Thanks for sharing your ideas.
