  1. I can't believe it is the last challenge of the season already! Looks like another exciting week ahead.

  2. Wow, over already? I'll miss it.

    I got my sewing machine FINALLY. Just a day or two ago...and No I can't join in this challenge. I have a charity quilt that gets top priority this week.

    But I've followed and wished to be apart of both seasons...and I am fairly sure the third time will be the charm for me. So please tell me when it will start so I can plan according. Please???!! (I am begging here.)

  3. I like the idea of the Large scale print! A great challenge with Large scale print and a stripe or plaid! I like it! I put it on facebook for my family and friends to make suggestions. Hopefully I will get some ideas that way! Thanks again for all the fun ideas... It is amazing to see all the wonderful quilted creations!
