I came across a beautiful free pattern by Australian designer Red Brolly and had to share! Wouldn't this be perfect for those of you who are looking for a fun "conference" project. And what a sunny sight on this blustery day.
A group of quilters from Utah would like to give memorial quilts to the families of Utah soldiers who have given their livesdefending freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan. Here's what you cando to help. Create a 12.5" block from red, white and blue fabrics, OR you can sew a 12" finished Civil War Blockusing either Thimbleberries or Civil War reproduction fabrics and return them to Pine Needles. Whether you can make one block or ten, EVERY BLOCK COUNTS, so please consider contributing to this cause. It takes approximately 15 blocks for each quilt.
You may also donate batting or Civil War reproduction fabrics to Pat Moseman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I am so excited to be able to show you block #6 in our block of the month called Tiny Townby Bunny Hill Designs. This adorable block includes a charming birdhouse and a wonderful old-fashioned gas tank and truck. And, since this block traveled with me to Arizona and back, it seemed completely appropriate that part of the block was about transportation!!! If you are wondering where the birdhouse openings and doorknobs are. . . wonder no longer. They have been left off until after the quilting is complete.
I hope you have fun adding another block to your very own tiny town! Cecilia
I am excited to share with you a link to Amanda's blog (You know Amanda, she is the fabulous designer of Quilted Fish patterns and fabrics)!
Here is a peak at part of the project - so cute!
This project is done using fabric from Amanda's Sweet Divinity line but I suggest grabbing some of her new line Sugar and Spice, snap that would be fabulous!

Husband and wife team Randy and Sandy Workman opened the doors of Pine Needles in August of 1996. It began as a small cross stitch store and is now proud to carry all the wonderful necessities for quilting, cross stitch, primitive embroidery and Russian punch needle. Many of the items we offer are by local artisans whose work appeals to shoppers and tourists alike. Our walls are brimming with the promise of projects to be done.
