One of the things I love to do around the holidays is to make gifts for people in my life who would not normally expect a gift. Last year I made Bowl Cozies for the 26 employees at my local coffee shop! Why, you ask? There are five or six women who work there that make my coffee for me and my husband every morning. They don't even ask, they just make my coffee when they see me waiting in line. Some days we are chatty, some days I am not so friendly. Remember, it is morning and I haven't yet had my coffee!

Do you get bored with your projects midstream? Do you have more UFOs than finished projects this year? I have the worst case of bright, shiny object syndrome of any quilter I know! But you would be so proud of me!
Since it is Christmas time, I want to share this pretty quilt with you! One time at Quilt Festival in Houston, I spotted an antique quilt that I really, really wanted to buy.
Our latest holiday pattern using the Hearts and More templates is Christmas Baubles. This pattern is quick to make if you need a last minute handmade gift.
Wouldn't it be fun to cut circles out of fabrics containing your favorite animals? A kitty tree would be just adorable! Nancy Sullivan, one of my Certified Instructors, made her pretty quilt using bright red cardinals in some of the circles.
Two exciting things are happening with Hearts and More this week. First, Generation Q magazine is blogging about and having a contest to win my book and a small set of Hearts and More tools and a copy of my new book! They have asked readers to comment on what you would write on the hearts in this sweet little Conversation Hearts quilt! In the comments below, I will put a link to the Generation Q contest so you can go, write a sweet saying, and win a copy of my book and tools!
Sue, Donna, and Linda Gosselin, a SPD Certified Instructor, belong to Thimble Pleasures Quilt Guild and we recently revealed our 2016 Challenges. The theme for challenge was "modern". To participate, we purchased a bag that contained two fat quarters and two crayons. We had to use both the fabrics in the bag but could add four additional fabrics as long as they matched the colors of the crayons. The fat quarters were a Kona white and a gray fabric with some circles and helped unify the finished pieces.
Rachell Rilley saw my Leaves Galore Templates in Quilter's Newsletter Magazine and has used them in some very interesting ways! I thought you might like to have today's blog post written by Rachell so you can see her amazing Fire Fighter Quilt. Enjoy! Sue Pelland
