Quilt on a Mission ... the results are in!

Pineapple Blossoms
Thanks everyone for your support of the Quilt on a Mission!  The quilt raffle brought in almost $1,200!!  I am just beyond excited about that.  I had an even higher goal, but all of life contains lessons to learn!

Now, my quilt is in yet another scrap quilt contest, but I tell you, there are some real beauties on there.  Go and vote at Quilting Gallery.

Arkansas Crossroads Block
While looking here I found the pattern  for my next totally scrappy quilt from a fellow bogger, Am I Shouting Yet?  The pattern is called "Arkansas Cross Roads."  Click on her links to see the super scrappy version, isn't her (she says from ugly fabric) quilt just beautiful?   Now I have my pattern & gonna start making those four patches!  Here's the block and a link to the pattern:  This is a great one to just do a little bit on every time I sit down at my sewing machine.  Found my pattern at Quilter's

What's on the machine?  Well, a secret project, super cute, but has to be revealed later.  Just finished up a couple of adorable burp cloths from my second love - embroidery!  What do you think?  I will be selling these with the baby's name for $22.00.

I am loving these and will be adding a "tigers tail" to the "I drool" bib for a little extra something. 
The mommy-to-be loved her gift & the personalization makes it so special!  Although it has been a while, I still remember how wonderful the burb cloths from my loving friends.  Certainly a thoughtful gift and
I can assure you they saved my clothes more than once!  She'll never go anywhere without your gift!

Till next time!
