This is my newest pattern that I am working on. I call is Scrapples as it is all from scraps of purple. Queen size, all strips, no matching--it is a wonderful way to create in one color family.

Pink color rendition of my purple scraps. I finished this quilt and gave to my good friend Dorothy. It is made from all scraps of pink!!!! Now I am working on a blue and yellow one. Merry Christmas!

Hatching new ideas

Need a program for your guild? Hatching new ideas and creating while having a hen party is what we do best. Donna Slater and Colleen Gift share, cluck and create so the whole group can learn while enjoying an eggciting time. Contact us at to book your party. We also can do 3 or 6 hour workshops. We love to quilt and we love to explore new quilt stores and make new quilting friends. Go Chicken is a game with fabric strips , exercise to the Chicken Dance, and have a Hen Party.
