I'm just getting some of the blocks done for the "Cottage Basics" quilt.... aren't they adorable?  They colors are so cheerful and I love the word prints!  Just thought I's share a bit of spring sunshine!  Have a great day!

Happy Easter!

I know everyone (including me!) is tired of the long winter and ready for the spring sunshine and green grass! But if spring is yet a bit distant, just plant a smile upon your face and bring a little sunshine to those you meet as you hop on down the Bunny Trail and may you find many blessings along the way!  Have a very happy Easter enjoying family and friends and maybe a bit of chocolate too!  Take care, and truly, have a wonderful weekend!

I 've finished my Snowbound quilt!  I tried to talk myself out of those embroidered snowflakes around the border but they really do add just the right touch!  We are so happy to have this designer, Pat Wys, with us to be teaching for our 18th annual Buggy Barn Quilt Show!  See the rest of the great line up of guest teachers HERE!  So make your plans, and schedule a class or two, and we'll see you in August if not before!

Crazy Monkey See Monkey Do

I've finished another crazy pattern, a single this time!  These goofy monkeys remind me of playing endless games of “Barrel of Monkeys” with my Aunt Mable…I believe the slogan for the game was “it’s a barrel full of laughs!”  so these guys make me smile!  Because of all the curves, this  pattern has a lot of pieces: way more than most crazies, so if you are new to this technique, this may not be the pattern you want to learn with.  But all the rest of you Buggy Barn Crazies out there: monkey see, monkey do, but remember, no more jumping on the bed!  Patterns retail for $12.00 and are available on our website.

Our newest Buggy Barn Basic Yarn Dyes are finally here!!  It's been a LONG wait but I think they are worth it!  I love the way the colors have all turned out!  This is the first time our yarn dyes will have a brushed finish on one side-it too is just as I'd hoped.  Thanks to Henry Glass for their work on this one because there was lots of back and forth to get it right!  Here are some pictures, although I just realized that I forgot the purples!  Sorry!  Enjoy!
