Hello Everyone,

Well it seems as if I have been gone forever.  But getting myself back into gear is tough!!!  Today, I spent the day prepping for the Mountains and Plains Quilt Along (QAL) for my Watch Me Wednesday this week.  

One of the things that I am enjoying so much is seeing all the progress in our QAL group on Facebook.  So many variations of the quilt and all equally beautiful.  I am not sure which I love more.  Some are making the mini version, some the large version, and at least one person combined the two!

So they are pretty awesome.  If you haven't joined in on the fun yet, you definitely must.  It is not too late.  You can watch my videos on my YouTube Channel here and join in at any time.  And if you are on Facebook join the group and contribute and see what everyone is doing.

Mary Beth's combined mini and large version

Oh and another COOL thing is that now my pattern is available in Quiltster so that you can mock up your version in an instant.  Here are two versions that I did, one with my Fresh Pick'ins (this fabric is on SALE in my shop here) and one with my Blue Moon collection.  Then Quiltster gives me the yardage amounts (in this case fat quarters) of each fabric I used.  That way if I want to make these versions, I can at anytime!  So much fun.  If you want to give it a try, just go to Quiltster, set up an account and play with some of my patterns!!!

I for one would love to have you along for the ride!  Right now... all you need to get started is to purchase the pattern and it is on SALE!  You can get it as an instant download or printed pattern.  You won't be disappointed with this pattern, it is fun to make and pretty quick too.

Hope to see you this Wednesday for the next Episode of Watch Me Wednesday on my Canton Village Quilt Works Facebook Page at 1:30 MST.  (PS remember Arizona does not observe Daylight savings time)  So if you are on the east coast, during the winter we were 2 hours behind and now we are 3.  Therefore, I will be broadcasting at 4:30 Eastern time.

See you then!

Until Next Time...
