Pickles, Patches and Babies - Oh My!

I've started wondering exactly WHAT is going on in the world lately! Pickles and Patches has been one of our best selling quilt patterns since I first designed it a few years ago. But lately it's like the Stork is working overtime!! For the past two weeks, we've had so many orders for this pattern. So, just in case you also have a bundle of joy headed your way, this is one easy-to-make baby quilt that works for a boy or a girl.

Pickles and Patches, as shown above, is simply adorable made with wonderful brushed cottons, but I can also envision it with all the beautiful brights and mod 60's fabrics - cute, cute, cute!! It is beginner-friendly, easy raw-edge machine applique and simple embroidered names. Introduce your baby to: Lester the Lion, Ed the Elephant, Pickles the Pig, Marbles the Monkey, Duke the Dog, Betty the Bunny, Dolly the Duck and Georgie the Giraffe. Pickles and Patches measures 57" X 64" and the pattern is only $8!

Our little angels love tummy time, cuddle time, and nap time on their special quilts.
As Great-Grand Minnie, I just have to show you!!

Our sweet baby Jude is sleeping all cuddled up under his Jingle Jangle Jungle Quilt!

Looks like Jude's in the dog house now!! He's playing on his Jelly Bean Quilt.

Last week Gary and Scott manned the office, while Michelle and I were making a lot of new "Friendfolks" at the Martha Pullen Show in Arlington, Tx.  It was espeically great seeing old friends again.
We are thankful to be blessed with the most wonderful customers and friends.

There was a lot of energy in our booth each day, of course it might have been the bananas and coffee we kept hidden under our table!
We appreciate all the enthusiasm over our new Embroidery Disks and new Redwork patterns.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by, and for being excited with us as we enter the world of:
                                                  Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
Be sure to "like" us, "tweet" us, and "pin" us!  Just search Friendfolks on each site.

To all of our Arlington area friends - it was great to be with you again and thank you for a wonderful show!!

Until next week,
