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.

Happy Stitching!

Quilts for Families of Fallen Soldiers

A group of quilters from Utah would like to give memorial quilts to the families of Utah soldiers who have given their lives defending freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Here's what you can do to help.  Create a 12.5" block from red, white and blue fabrics, OR you can sew a 12" finished Civil War Block using 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 (

Tiny Town Block of the Month

I am so excited to be able to show you block #6 in our block of the month called Tiny Town by 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!
