Pink Bootiful

One of my Granddaughter Mackenzie's favorite things are her pink boots. Because of her I decided to make a PINK Bootiful! quilt. The Pattern Design is by OK Carol Rockwell for Bigfork Bay Cotton Company.
Bigfork Bay Cotton Company has their NEW website up and running at You can order your kits and patterns directly from the website now. They even have thread packs of Aurifil thread to go with the kits for machine quilting. Check it out. Remember that Bighorn Quilts carries a lot of the patterns too at

Hubby's New Toy

Alan got a new toy today. He LOVES it! I love it because now maybe he will quit obsessing about having a bike and just go out and ride it. The bike already needs new chrome, new this, new that... It's ok, I can never have enough fabric either. You know, Fathers Day is coming up and now we can actually think of things to get him.

It's a beautiful bike and he really does deserve it.

My Adorable Grandson Vince

I haven't shown Vince off lately so I decided it was time. I babysit him two days a week and it is so much fun to watch him change almost weekly. He has such a great personality. He loves the Wiggles. He dances and sings with them and what I think is so cute is that they crack him up. I love watching him laugh.

Vince has a thing for the phone, just like his Aunt Jenny. All day long he pretends his toys are the phone or he has a real phone up to his ear talking on it. I didn't have a picture of his Aunt Jenny for years that she didn't have a phone up to here ear. Ironically, she does tech support with customers over the phone all day and talks on it when she gets home all night.

Jenny's daughter Kenzie, however, is just like Shelly, Vince's Mom. Let's just say they are just a little controlling! I don't know where they all get their traits either. It wasn't from me....

Gondola, Vino, and Autumn Ride,By Bigfork Bay Cotton Company

I just finished these great new quilts for Bigfork Bay Cotton Co. by Debi Hubbs. They were such delight to make. I just LOVE the little dog in all of them. Something about Debi's designs make me smile. I could look at them all day.
These quilts are so simple to make. Traci and Lynn will be at Market with all the new designs next week. The patterns and kits are, as always, available at Bigfork Bay Cotton Co. They aren't up on the website so just call and ask for them by name at 866-245-5718 . I'm sure my favorite shops will be carrying them after market, so check them out too. The websites are on my sidebar.
I am so very excited about all the quilts from Bigfork Bay Cotton Co. I thank God every day that I have the opportunity to make trunk shows for such an amazing group of people. Just wait until you see the other new quilts. They have added even more new artists this time!
