So excited to learn of such a fabulous blog and I've never seen so many great tutorials in one spot before. Would say my favorites are the fabric strawberries and the Just Dandy Baby Quilt. My daughter loves dandelions.

I all ready used her pinwheel quilt tutorial to make pinwheels but I would really like to make the Abby bag!

So unfair but here goes. I love the fabric ring (and bracelets) and I have always loved the baby life quilt. But I think the one I am most likely to make and use for me is the go anywhere bag.
thanks for sending me to the site again - I have no time to sew at the moment but I love to look.

I think it's very cruel that you only allow us to choose one of her patterns; I love them all! But if I must choose, the Houndstooth quilt caught my eye, and intrigues me so much that I have to get the pattern and try that one first (and then all the others!).
