Spring has arrived least that's what the calendar says.  As I sit here in Maryland, looking out the window of the dining room at my sister's house, it is snowing.  So, maybe spring has been delayed in Maryland. It is rather close to Pennsylvania, where that pesky groundhog lives.

At Sweet T's Quilting, however, spring has sprung.  New fabric colors are soaking in dye right now and there will be a reveal on Sweet T's Facebook Page tomorrow.  There is a really pretty light blue color brewing, and I think it will be lovely.

The second Choose Your Own Adventure pattern is mostly done and will be released in the next week or so.  There are daffodils, tulips, dandelions, butterflies, dragonflies, bunnies, and baby chicks mixed in with traditional and modern quilting designs.  It will be a lot of fun to quilt.

Cindy Rich, of Twisted Sister Quilting, is using the first Choose Your Own Adventure pattern to create her own mini whole cloth.  Follow her on her page to see her progress.

A new mandala pattern is ready for printing and it is fabulously feathered. I think you will all love it.  It is very classy and elegant.

I will be back home March 30th, so I apologize for any delays in your orders.  My mother's health had to take priority.

What's going on in your world?  I would love to hear from you.

It's contest time!

I am ready to start designing my new pattern and I need your help!

The first Choose your own Adventure pattern has been so successful and I am ready to start working on a sketch for the second one.  The theme is spring.  That's all I have so far.  In my mind I see images of flowers, grass, and sunshine.   Maybe it's because I am sick and tired of all this crazy cold weather.  Whatever the reason, that's my vision.

Here's where you come in.  Comment below or on my Facebook page and let me know what you think of when you think spring.  Do certain colors appeal to you?  Are there animals or objects that scream spring?

One random participant will be selected to receive a whole KIT for the new spring pattern, including your choice of hand dyed fabric color.

Two additional winners will receive the full size printed pattern.

So, what are you waiting for?  Post your comments now!
