  2. I love the Mimosa collection--it is so fresh and crisp and vibrant. I can't wait to see what you came up with.

    I've really enjoyed seeing your "vintage" patterns. Thanks for sharing them with us. I have especially liked your Garden Maze quilt; I'm thinking of making it for a friend who appreciates symmetry and loves tile floors.

  13. Debby, the Gee's Bend story shows so well what can be done when we appreciate the non-monetary resources in our lives. The stories and energy are vibrant and quite inspiring.
