Launch of On-Line Store & Give Away

Hello World!!!....or at least all of you in Blogland!

Today is like Christmas morning for me!  After much anticipation, anxiety and excitement, I am thrilled to launch my on-line store at HGMR Deco Quilting. I am starting with five patterns which I've designed over the last few months using Jenny's amazing Quick Curve Ruler!

So, how did I get to this moment?  One day I had an epiphany that I should create patterns for all these quilts that are always floating around in my head.  I realized these ideas could be more than just 'one hit wonders' if I created patterns for them. 

So here we go!  It's time to get out of my sewing room and into your sewing room.....


To celebrate this happy day I'm giving away five of my new patterns.  To enter the give-away leave a comment, for a second chance to win, blog about it on your blog and link back to my blog.  Yes, I know that's a lot of blogs...Lol (Winners will be randomly drawn on Monday, October 1)

........AND MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR!

Special thanks to my pattern testers, to all my fellow quilters who inspire me every day, and finally to my amazing sister Jenny -you are always a bright spot in my life, love you.

ps  Jenny and I are going to Houston Quilt Market!  Yeah!!!
