New Patterns from Sharie Paulson

My friend Sharie Paulson has published her own patterns! Yeah! If you have ever seen Sharie's quilts you would know why we have been telling her to publish her own patterns. These patterns can either be paper pieced or you can do the traditional piecing. Instructions for both are included. Her patterns are available at the, "Quilt Shoppe" in Westlake, LA. Go check them out. Can't wait to get started on one. Sharie is the one who taught me to paper piece and I love it.

Cotton Pickin Shop Hop

Each shop had miniature quilt kits to buy. Hope to get started on that soon.

This is the door prize from and the free gifts from the other shops on the shop hop. I went to Bourne Quilter in Lafayette Friday and also to Aunt Nell's Quilt Shop in Pineville. Then Saturday I went to Terry's Quilt Shop and Les Amis Quilt Shop in Sulphur then on to The Quilt Shoppe in Westlake and my last stop was at Quilts Bayou in Lake Charles. Fun, fun and I got lots of goodies.
