Happy Monday Everyone!
It’s a gorgeous day here in Minnesota, even if an evil wind last week blew most of the leaves off the trees. The sun is shining, it’s in the mid sixties, calm and there are still a few fall colors around.
Today I want to share two new patterns that will be showing at fall market later this month. They just arrived from the printer, so our pre orders will ship out today. That means you could start seeing them arriving in stores in a couple of days.
First up is Little Charmers 7. You may remember my obsession with charm squares (and all precuts), which resulted in my other Little Charmers patterns. It has been a while since I have made any runners, so it was time to come out with a few new charm patterns.
The pattern includes directions for all three runners. Each requires just one charm pack, along with some background and binding fabric.

Can you tell I had some fun quilting these? I did pebble quilting on the one above and some fun free-hand designs below.

The next pattern is called Galleria.
As you can see, the description on the pattern reads: a place to show off a perfect collection of fun fabrics. I have been saving this collection of fat quarters for something that really showed them off.
I couldn’t find quite the right pattern, so I had to make up a new one ;-) The fabrics are from the Secret Garden line from Sandi Henderson (along with a couple from my stash)
There is a touch of applique, just to add a bit of interest and break up the piecing.
Every fall, I borrow my neighbor’s maple tree for a few photos. It makes the perfect quilt rack, don’t you think?
I always like to give away the first copies of the newest books or patterns. If you are interested, just leave me a comment. Later this week, I will draw a couple of winners.
I am just finishing up some photos on a kit for Galleria. I’ll be back soon with the pics. Thanks for stopping by!
