Sunday Shenanigans

First of all...

Happy Mothers' Day

It's a beautiful day and I hope to be able to spend some time outside to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. But first, I have to finish cleaning up my basement from a broken water heater that spewed water all over.  YUCK!! The worst part about all of this is that I wasn't home when it happened. My husband had arrived home a few hours before I did so he spent a good 2 1/2 hours vacuuming by himself. He's such a good man!!

So where was I? I was out celebrating the release of the new Quilt Sampler Magazine that features M & E Quilt Shoppe and one of my patterns. YIPPEE!!

If the magazine is not on the shelves in your area, they will  be soon. There are some awesome shops and quilts featured this time. It is well-worth reading.
And, today I am the guest blogger over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. I've provided a tutorial for a very simple and quick to make quilt. If you need a quilt fast, whether it's for a gift or donation, this tutorial may just fit the bill. It's perfect if you have some charm packs sitting around because it just takes 96 - 5" squares and 2 3/4 yards of background fabric.  I call my version After the Rain and you'll see why when you read the post. Here's a picture before quilting.
Hope you enjoy it!

Just read your tutorial over on Sarah's site. Nice job! Very clear instructions for a lovely, versatile quilt. I really like how the consistent centers of the nine patches ties every thing together.

Thank you for sharing your expertise!
