First, a few words about Lemon Tree - a big hug to all of you for your sweet comments, and for those I couldn't reply to [no-reply] I thank you here! I didn't include a layout diagram in the pdf purposely, I want you to make this pattern your own. But I will tell you I used 9 lemons, and approximately 55 leaves. I counted them a few times and kept losing my place. Caroll from Attic Window Quilt Shop pointed out that you could make this with apples, pears, anything you like - so have a play and make it fun!
Now, the give-away win. I was thrilled to win a $25 gift certificate to The Quilt Shoppe from the darling and talented Cyndi at Bluebirdswing. It took me DAYS to decide how best to use it. I've been wanting to start Jenny's A Christmas Story Quilt, and I found exactly the fabric I've been wanting!
Can you see the little polka dots in the flowery fabric?
I fell in love with it in the shop, and it's even prettier in person - I think it's going to be perfect for Jenny's quilt! I'll probably add one more fabric to them, not too sure what color though. Thank you so much Cyndi, I had so much fun looking through the shop and ordering this beautiful fabric. Amanda from The Quilt Shoppe was so nice to deal with, too!
And finally, two give-aways to tell you about. Talin's Corner is giving away two adorable wool pincushions that she made, go see - very cute! And Joanne from Splitting Stitches is having a give-away - she's trying to fill up her studio wall with quilt blocks, so send her a block and be entered - and while you're there, check out the quilting on the latest quilts, just lovely!
Have a great Labor Day holiday for those of you celebrating! And if you're not celebrating Labor Day, celebrate something!
