And thank you son.....Semper Fi

And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.

who gave that right to me. -Lee Greenwood

2019 BOM Block of the Month!

When Tammy first laid her eyes on this eye candy fabric, the first thing that came to her mind was the movie Harry Loves Sally. Then when she got her hot little quilter’s fingers on the fabric and design just materialized from out of nowhere. Well it came from somewhere, but she let the fabric do the talking for her and the quilt image shown below is what she came up with.

Abbi May’s Fabric Shop has been sponsoring her BOM quilts, and many other quilts that I design, since 2006.
You can purchase this kit here: “Harry Loves Alice” 
This is the new (and did she mention free?) 2019 block of the month (BOM) quilt for her sister-site, The fabrics are bold and bright, fun and festive and even a little bit romantic, too! It’s an 11-part BOM quilt with one block pattern instruction revealed on the 20th of each month. If you follow along each month, you will have a quilt finished by Christmas next year! Woo Hoo!

PS: She can’t guarantee that you’ll have the same…ummm…reaction that Meg Ryan did in the diner, but I can’t promise you…won’t…either!
