Day 5 of the Minnesota Blog Hop


Today is day five of the Minnesota Blog Hop.  Today’s you’ll be visiting Sheri Fall’s from This and That Pattern Company and she is talking embroidery.  She is offering a download of the pillow pattern below.  Click here to go to her blog.

Pillow 007 

I’ve really been pleased so far with the variety of topics that have been covered on the blog hop.  Every day there is something new to learn!  We designers are taking the weekend off, so join us again next Monday for the continuation of the blog hop.


I just finished up a couple projects that I thought I would share with you today.  The pattern is called Secret Garden.


The fabric line is called Swanky, by Moda.   Here’s a close-up of the machine quilting.



I also made that runner out of Andalucia, by Patty Young.


I wasn’t sure how these larger prints would cut up, but I really like the end result.  Again, here’s the close-up –



The original pattern is in my Sizzlin’ Sixties book and is shown below.  The fabric is Rebel Roses, designed by my Mom and I for Henry Glass and Co.


We have a few kits and rulers left for runner, so drop me an e-mail if you are interested!  (

    I really like that. I’m not really into table runners, but diffidently could see making into a full sized quilt. I think it’s really lovely.
