A Stitch a Day Keeps the Doctor Away


Here's another little, flowered, appliquéd mini quilt. 


Similar color pallet as the one from my last post, but with a much less traditional look.


Shot cottons and hand stitching make such a lovely marriage... they just go together so nicely.


Now available in my shop. Please see here for more information

I tried your links to vote for cloud 9, but I think I ended up being dinged for $, as I got a message thanking me for helping someone reach a monetary goal. Searching for Cloud 9 fabrics came up with "no matches for that search."

very strange.

shrug.

I tried!

Oh, and I LOVE your work! Thanks for the peek at your latest. :)

Thanks to each of you. :)

Suzanne, Oh my, no you shouldn't be paying to vote! If you go to Cloud9 Fabrics blog, read their post and click on the highlighted "link" that they provide, then all should work. I apologize for any confusion.
