Winners and Maison de Garance

Good Morning! Sorry to be slow to post the winners. I want to thank everyone for all the lovely comments and for playing along. Without further ado, the winners are Sinta Renee and Terry in So. Cal. If you guys will email me your addresses I will get the patterns in the mail.
The quilt top for the next layer cake pattern is finished. I am planning to start quilting it this afternoon. "Planning" being the operative word. You know how that goes, best intentions and all. Anyway, the fabric line is Maison de Garance by French General. Roughly translated that is House of Madder. The line is gorgeous. Madder reds and browns with a touch of green. The background prints range from a very light cream to a tan. There is everything from a linen look to an elaborate floral.

As soon as the pattern is ready I will post it. If there is interest, I will probably give away a couple of those as well. These patterns are new to the market, so if you want one and can't find it, just email me and you can order one directly from me. Until next time..
Happy Quilting, Dawn
