I remember this from Market. . . oh, I do - I do want the pattern! It is beautiful! How smart (& fast!) Beth is to nab you & the design! It will be hard to wait until then!

How did I miss this 'Blog-able Feast' thingy?. . . (okay - don't answer that. . . !) . . . but I'm looking forward to following it when you do it - how fun!

xo.

Ok, is it wrong of me to adore the fact that this lovely victoriana quilt was delivered on the back of a Harley? Or is this just merely my own sense of the strange and unusual coming through? I LOVE these fabrics! I'm starting to feel another pink and green quilt coming on -- and I had just about sworn off that color combo for a while. *sigh*

If I do say so myself, the thing I love about the way this collection turned out is that it was really versatile.

Out of a realitvely small collection of things we acheived "alotta look"!

(the dirty little secret of textile design is that you can plan a lot but anything can (and ususally does) go wrong between the idea
(aka the light bulb moment) and the final product...

So when all of the stars align and things turn out really well...it is satisfying for a long time...until of course the next customer calls to tell you that they don't like something. Then the bubble pops along with your ego...yeah those few days of satisfaction slip away pretty darn quick!

thanks for the kind words Angela, as this is a very humbling experience for me and all of the gals at LHDG.

Staring out at a lake, sounds so nice. Its cool here so I'll imagine it cool and humidity free. And no bugs. The quilt is very pretty. I love prairie points!

Holly really does squeal with delight. Athough I think she would prefer her "babies" to travel by car.

I am happy to see the strawberry pie recipe on the blog. Now I don't have to ask for it again! I am going to try it with blueberries from the farm on 94 near the Ford dealership.

That las post was cryptic and oddly anonymous.
I'm guessing QOATF!

Oh Holly -- the quilt is fabulous! I certainly hope Cheryl has a backpack out of the La Belle Rose collection -- it would just be too cool on the back of a Harley with all that black leather! Brown Cateyes? Mine were pink. I've been wondering when that fashion will be making the rounds again. LOL.

Holly Holderman

yeah, you probably never saw Cindy Taylor Oates adorable rose back pack...

I'll have to post that, great idea Anna!

Yes H2 it is me trying to spend a bit of time in front of a pc.

I put my name in the little box this time.

I wanna see the pictures of you as a brownie with glasses.
Oh yeah, I love the quilt too.
Kisses. Gina

Love the quilt. And...thanks for the kind comments on my blog. I'm back in town and exhausted. Looking forward to getting back to quilting. Take care!

I love this quilt in the current McCall's Quilting Mag. but...the directions are so tiny and to recreate this quilt without ordering the kit-is impossible. The directions are funky and the prints are near impossible to figure out. Any way to remedy this? Most of the fun for me is the challenge of the puzzle and this is almost beyond me without help.
Again-I cannot get this quilt out of my head!

Annette

I hope someone can direct me. I can't find the pattern. I would prefer to buy the kit. Where can I get this? Will check back to see if there is anything.

That is not a good link. It goes to an Embarq thing that says

Sorry, there are no results for “http://www.tammytadddesign.com/”

Is there another link for tammy?

I have just discovered your fabrics, and I LOVE them, at our Local Quilt Shop. They only have the Hydrangea fabrics at this point. I have also purchased the Irish Garden Quilt pattern. The pattern instructions are a little bit confusing to me. Can you help me out. How big is the the finished block?
In the instructions the fabrics are listed A-G, and on the back of the pattern it just lists the fabrics you should purchase, so I don't know what they are? Is the Hydrangea Corsage fabric the one that is used as the focus fabric? I will start looking for your line of fabrics when I go shopping. Thanks for your help.
