This weekend I was sorting out some of the patterns we still have in stock and decided that I could make some grab-a-bags. A little different to what you normally see as often with grab-a-bags you don't know what's inside - mostly mystery items. There are four patterns inside and they are only $8.00  I made several with at least one known pattern which I put on the front so quilters knew they were getting a minimum of one favorite.

April is Autism Awareness Month

photo of HamishHamish is a young man who is autistic, but he is wonderful to know and as you may know, autistic children have amazing talents. One of Hamish's talents is the ability to draw and he does a pretty good job of it too. My company Arbee Designs, decided to display this talent by developing his drawings into quilt blocks and we are giving back to him $2.00 for every block purchased.

The Walrus quilt block

If you read my last week's post, you will know that April is Autism Awareness month so I am turning my son's drawings into quilt blocks. I have to say, they make really cute blocks and fun to make too. I'm making one each week for this month of April, but I may go on to make more as I am thinking these blocks will turn into a great baby quilt and four just won't be enough.

Wild Flowers quilt made by Ruth BlanchetHave you ever laid in a grass field and looked through the weeds and wild flowers? This was what I was doing when I created my quilt "Wild Flowers". Well not technically, but I was reminiscing about doing just that as I created this quilt.

Coloring Pages and Quilt Patterns

Over the last few months, I've been creating coloring pages. It seems like adult coloring is the rage lately and I hear it is great therapy. As we all know, quilting is great therapy too so I wondered what would happen if I combined both - a super charge? Yes, I have to believe so! Thus, I began creating coloring pages that can be used for quilting as well as coloring.

Anita has always enjoyed making Christmas blocks. Some were practice blocks for patterns, others were just for fun. As she gathered more and more, she decided that all these wonderful blocks needed to be included in a bed quilt and thus her beautiful Christmas quilt was born.design your own Christmas quilt with feathered star center and Christmas blocks
