 Today is the day for the Blog Tour- here's my block.  I wanted to do something simple and kind of fun so I used brighter colors than I normally would.   I thought it might look cute as a table runner also!  I added some French knots and a butterfly button from JAB.  I've got this flower things going on lately!  Here's the actual block-
 Then here it is in a simple table runner.  Easy- would look different in different color ways.  



 I've got some copies of the magazine to give away so make a comment here today and I'll choose 3 names to receive a free copy of the book!
Be sure to check out the website too for their goodies each day this week.

I've got my new fabric line coming out in 2 weeks at the International Quilt Market in Kansas City.  It's called A Cat for All Seasons and it's more flowers with some great blenders! Here's a sampling of the new fabrics-
Once I get some of the fabric in, we'll do a drawing on a sample pack so stay tuned! 

New pattern using the new fabrics- Going Green- unquilted but you get the idea-  I love the greens!
 I've got a few more cuts of the 108" backing fabrics special sale left in several colors.  
Check it out on the website at http://prairiegrovepeddler.com/Other.html

 It's a great purchase on some fun backing colors.
