All You Need is Love

Sometimes life is really hard. It’s cold winter here in Maryland. Not a lot of daylight. The bad news seems to overshadow the good. But spring will come. Flowers will bloom. As Taylor Swift says, “Shake it off”. And when you shake off the bad, don’t forget to put love in its place. Because, really, all you need is love.


Want to send this message on a quilt? Buy any Maryland Quilter quilt or baby blanket and I’ll applique “I Love You”. Just tell me you need love and I’ll put it there, for free 🙂


Free, Free, Free, You Get One Free

Last night  Evelyn and I made part of a green caterpillar. It is for a science project so all the caterpillar parts have to be there. I’m learning that there are lots of parts to a caterpillar. Not sure what Evelyn is learning.


He looks better in real life:)

While Evelyn was working on the caterpillar, I took some time to make freebie gifts. Whenever someone buys a quilt or a blanket from Maryland Quilter, I wrap it in a ribbon, write a note and usually include a little handmade surprise. That’s part of the fun of life, right? Opening a box and finding an unexpected gift. So I share that fun with my customers, whom I love:)

Here’s some of the freebie gifts I made last night. These are coasters, randomly designed from fabric scraps. No two are alike and there is no pattern for these:



I also made some bookmarks.


If you want one, they are free but you have to order an item (not a digital pattern) from Maryland Quilter. I’ll send an extra one if you follow my blog and mention it in the comment form at checkout:)
