Berit Bentson sent in these three pictures. The first ("Souvenir de France") and last picture ("Now I Know my ABC's") are free patterns from this blog site. The middle one is "Beneath the Sunlit Sky." It's an older Loose Feather pattern. http://picasaweb.google.com/j.berit/BeneathTheSunlitSkyBBD#
Berit writes: "I liked "Now I Know My ABC's" so much that I couldn't decide whether to finish it as a pin pillow or use it as the backing to this scissors "cabinet" with some stripe ticking (but should it be the red or the taupe!?). I pinned it in here haphazardly to think it over, and somehow it's still there. I may stitch it again!

I've been looking for those coin purse handles....they are really hard to find. Catherine's purse highlights our "Bird in Hand" pattern.

Katrina Devine writes, "Thought you'd like to see the completed pieces. Deb, the finisher I use, did a fantastic job :-) . Much better than I could have done, LOL. I also stitched and finished a scissor fob over one.
See you in June at Tomorrow's Heirlooms and in September at Shepherd's Bush!
Can't wait for both events."
(Katrina's piece is one I designed for the Dyeing to Stitch 2009 retreat in Virginia Beach.) This has not been published yet. Katrina ...your scissor fob is just too sweet. Wish I would have thought of it!!!
Lynn Wilder, designer, and an employee of In Between Stitches quilt shop in Livermore, California writes,
"Our store is one of the featured quilt shops in the soon to be released May issue of Quilt Sampler magazine.
I just finished a quilt that I designed, made and quilted using your Garden Party fabric line. The beautiful fabric spoke to me the moment I saw it. A friend of mine, Lisa Stone, brought back a tower of Garden Party from the Houston show last fall. She knows my "style" and knew I would love your new fabric.
I'm enclosing a picture of the quilt. Here is my blog site also: http://inbetweenstitchesbom.blogspot.com/ I've been posting my progress on the quilt for several months. The shop is offering the quilt as a block of the month.
Thank you so very much for your inspiring lines of fabric. You make our homes beautiful!"
Many thanks to all of you who take the time to write and send pictures. Barb and I are always amazed at your work and ideas of using our patterns. I still have more to post and hopefully will be able to get them all up this week.
