Woke up to this beautiful white site this morning.

5 inches and still falling.

 It's ok, though, because I am getting ready to work on Christmas projects.  Yes, Christmas in March, that way, you will have new projects for Christmas in July.   We have been checking all the new Christmas fabric collections for this year and there are some beautiful choices.

Today is a show and tell post.  We love it when we get pictures of projects you have made from our patterns.  Like a proud momma watching her babies.

THE MAGGIE MAY from Nann Reed

Here's what she had to say, "Here are some photos of Maggie May bags. I like to pander to current fashion while maintaining a whimsical feel, so I combined pink cheetah fabric with bold stripes and polka dots. The grey bag was created from cotton batik fabric and strips cut from items I found in the thrift shop, like neckties and an extremely flamboyant housecoat. Thanks again for the lovely pattern!"

And here are her pictures

Check out the beautiful decorative stitching on the handles

Next, MATCH BOX from Gerry Gray
She sent us these pictures a few months ago, and this is what she said "Finished the binding today. Yeah~ Here are some pictures. Of course my two year old has to be on the quilt. The material is "Adoring". I used a Merry Christmans script as the background fabric, since Adoring is such a subtle Christmas print. Hope you like it.

And last for tonight, our good friend Lucy Moory sent us this little note.  She was using the FAB FIVE book.  Lucy writes, "had to show you and tell you.... I LOVED how easy your Fab 5 quilt goes together! I'm making more!!!!!


She used her own fabric line, PACIFIC TRADE WINDS, head over to her blog and check it all out, http://www.thedrizzledapple.blogspot.com/.

Here is the FAB FIVE book

This is the pattern we did for Lucy's fabric line.  It is called ROCK AND ROLL.
Thanks again for all the pictures.  Keep sending them.  Check out all the patterns and more on our website, http://www.abbeylanequilts.com/.

Have a great week, Janice and Marcea

Hello ladies,

I love the stitching on the pink bag! I see you love fabric and thought you might be interested in following decolourant.blogspot.com
Kandi Corp makes deColourant right here in Safety Harbor, FL. It is a new product that removes and replaces the dye from natural dyed fabrics with ease. It gives off a slight citrus smell and can be used with stencils, stamps, free hand, etc. When you get a chance maybe you would like to check out the below sites for more information. I am going to browse more of your blog! Have a great afternoon.
