Gracie Girl Happenings...

As you can guess,
Kassidy and I have been busy sewing up some new patterns with

Above is a sneak peek of her "Shuffle" quilt that she finished last week.

Shuffle will be one of the four quilts in our next Gracie Girl pattern.
All four quilts are super easy, fast and cute! 

I wanted to have a beginning piecing 
"go to pattern" 
for those
 of you who are teaching young girls to
 piece a quilt for the first time...
or for those who might want to
 make a quilt in one day!

All four patterns use Gracie Girl
pre-cut strips.

GG - 2 1/2" Rolie Polie
GG - 3 1/2" Rolie Polie

The pattern will be called 
"Four Square"
I hope to have it available to you by next Monday.
The quilts included in the patterns are called:

1. Shuffle
2. Flip-Flop
3. Pixie Stix
4. Twirl

Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber interviewed me

Your fabric combinations are sooo cute, and you go a great job sharing your ideas on your blog. I enjoy seeing the projects and learning how to use scraps on so many projects. Thanks.

Hi I have just found your blog and it is great. Have you got a tutorial on how to make your design board? I have a design wall in my work room but I think the board would be good when I go to the club I run. Thank you Davina xx

I had gotten notice you had mailed my order yesterday. Thought oh ok---didn't get the fabric :(. Come to read your post for today. Lo and behold my name is there THANK YOU so very much. I LOVE the line. I know my daughter will be thrilled to know we have some new fabric coming. Can't wait for it to get here now. Be watching the mail daily.

Can't wait for all 4 quilt patterns. Already love the 'shuffle' pattern. I received part of my Gracie Girl Fabric and just LOVE it! Will wait a bit before I start to cut and sew. It just warms my heart to look at it right now.

I love you for doing this for young girls who are branching out in their sewing. We got our daughter her 1st Bernina and getting this pattern and some of your Gracie girl is going to make a great birthday gift for her! Thank ou for remembering our young girls who we don't want to overwhelm but encourage and inspire them!
Love you for this!
