 Color SingularSensations-Color PuzzlePuzzle A favorite quilt of mine. From the book Singular Sensation.

I love COLOR!  I love the drama of Color on Black. Sometimes when I design a quilt the graphic rendition excites me but the fabric rendition is lack-luster, but NOT so with Color Puzzle. It exceeded my expectations.  I love how it glows. It doesn't show as well on a bed. This is a larger quilt 87" x 87", I need a larger wall to hang it on. A larger wall is not to be found in my 80 year old Stone Cottage!  Oh well, it is a keeper!


I really want to think that Spring is right around the corner. I had the opportunity to design Budding Spring Runners  for The Quilt Pattern Magazine, for the March 2016 issue, to be published on March 1.  TQPM is offering a special subscription price for my readers so they can receive this pattern and many, many more.

Both Runners are easy to piece and will provide a breath of spring to your table or bed.

As a new Island Batik Ambassador I want to spread the word about Island Batik's Planes, Trains, & Automobiles Blog Hop that began today. Check out IB Blog to find all the blogs that are participating. There will be some fabric give-aways as you go through the blogs.

While Stone Cottage Designs isn't able to participate in this Blog Hop (being so new) I look forward to seeing all the great designs other designers come up with and all the luscious new Island Batik collections!
