I just love this picture!

This Quilt was made for my niece from ‘Layer Cakes’.
I love the fabrics and had such fun putting them together.
The pattern was by Cozy Quilt Design, simple and relaxing.

What are ‘Layer Cakes’? ‘Layer Cakes’ are a fabric line
of 40 10” squares. It’s one of the many ingredients from
Moda Bake Shop.

I have just finished a top using ‘Layer Cakes’
and ‘Jelly Rolls’....there are also 'Honey Buns'
and 'Turnovers'...I find the names so cute!
Amazing idea!

With these sweet ingredients make a quilt
for a friend in need -

“A friend is someone that knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you forget the words" - author unknown

Happy Quilting,

The weather we have been experiencing thus far is just perfect for
quilting. I have been enjoying the cool of my Quilt Cottage and quiet
time with my fabrics, stroking and creating new projects. Hmmm….
the fabrics are so beautiful in today’s market.
I have been featured in one of our local magazines,
Health, Home and Garden Jamaica, Fall/Winter ‘08’ Issue
which is available both on the local and International Market.
Take a peek and enjoy the wonderful articles.

Remember each quilt tells a story,
Your story!
