All you quilters and embroidery specialists, you have got to go to this blog. Kaaren offers First Friday Freebies (FFF). They are adorable embroidery patterns that you can download for free. She even has a 10 month Raggedy Ann BOM (Block of the Month) that complete patterns are there for you to download. I am definitely doing that one. I love Raggedy Ann; I love embroidery; best of all I love FREE.
For all of you that were born between January 21st to February 19th, here is your quilting guild astrology:
Aquarius, you would do well to find a guild that is big on spontaneity and short on rules. A group with tight structure makes you wiggle in your seat, but a circle if creative minds that come together to brainstorm is just perfect for you! Fina a group that will enjoy and appreciate your eccentric point of view--and if you cannot find this group, then start your own group of inventive artistic quilters with a sense of adventure and playfulness. You need a safe place to share your wild innovations and to nurture other who are exploring their own unconventional fiber experiments.

I love Lori Holt's patterns. We carry all her applique patterns on our website at http://www.beehivequilts.com/. We sell a lot of them, too. Last time I ordered, I ordered her Valentine quilt pattern, along with others that I already carried. This is it:
Beehive Quilts received a shipment of fabric recently that is just adorable. It is a few bolts from Red Rooster fabric distributor. The line is called Always Believe. Yes, it is Christmas fabric. It is my belief that it is never too early to purchase Christmas fabric and start working on next year's projects. Here are pictures of the fabric:
We are also working on a pattern that will incorporate all the fabrics. When we get that together, we will kit some of this fabric. We will post a picture of the finished quilt when it gets completed.
If you are interested in any of this fabric, we offer it at http://www.beehivequilts.com/redrooster. The price is reasonable at only $8 per yard. All of Beehive Quilts' fabric is $8 or less. We even have one bolt listed at $3 per yard.
