If you haven't yet heard about this exciting new website, you need to hop on over and see what we've all got to look forward to!

There's a link on Sarah's sidebar, but definitely take the time to scroll down and enjoy her bright and happy blog.

To celebrate the launch of Sewn, I'm giving away a set of each of the new Spring 2009 Late Bloomer Quilts patterns (including the two designs by Pam) as well as a copy of my book, just in case any of you are new to machine blanket stitch applique.

So that's 8 patterns and a book which should keep the winner busy for at least a little while.

The drawing will be held on June 8 to coordinate with the launch of Sewn.
Good luck!!
