Cheers for Lynne!!

The post man took his sweet 'ol time in delivering the latest issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine to me!  I've been waiting and waiting at the mailbox each day for this special issue.  It isn't everyday when one of your very best friends is the featured designer in a favorite quilting magazine!!  But...oh, it was worth the wait!!  And...that's Lynne's quilt on the cover!

Did you get your copy of the magazine yet?  You have to so you can see all the pictures of Lynne and Robert's cabin, quilt shop and retreat center!  If you love vintage quilts, antiques, and of course, Kansas Troubles you'll savor every picture.  Not to mention that Lynne's beautiful quilt, Rustic Stars pattern is in there.  It's Lynne's simplified version of the difficult, very striking Hunter's Star pattern.  I visited Lynne's cabin, shop and retreat last month.  Click here to see the blog post of my visit.  Congratulations, Lynne....just don't stop doing what you're doing!  We all love Kansas Troubles!!  

Did you visit Paula Barnes' blog last Friday for the next block in our sew-along?  Her block is great...I'm loving it!  Check back with her this week to see the winners of her give-aways, and remember to visit Sarah Maxwell's blog (of Homestead Hearth) on Friday for her block instructions.

I also have a wonderful announcement!  Erica H., who lives in the great state of Alaska, has set up a Yahoo Group for the Friends & Companions sew-along!!  Our thanks to Erica for taking the time to set all of this up and be the group moderator.  So kind of you!  Click here to see the Yahoo Group site.  Enjoy!
