  1. aha... I am the pumpkin! It is past midnight.. 7 minutes after! I have just visited everyone except the last 3... they must be in bed getting their beauty sleep.. :)

    I will be back in the morning after I get 40 winks... Then I will be Cinderella once again. :)

    Now where did I put that slipper???

    1. It is exciting to see the quilt in one of the top 2 spots... and kudos to the quilt that tied with me!

      The letters are cut from fabric out of the Font-Tastic Collection from Michael Miller. I cut a 2 1/2 inch square around each letter, laid my words down on the blocks and fused them down. I started to have them straight but a whimsy thought crossed my brain so I chose to lay them down in this fun way. Made all the difference in the quilt, I think. I used the blanket stitch on my machine to applique the letters to the background square. :)

      Thanks for choosing my quilt Madame Samm! :)

  2. What a great day, so honoured to be sharing the hop with all these amazing crafters and artists. Look forward to the top picks today!

  3. Rosemary B here:
    I never had a chance to visit around yesterday (mom's birthday) so today will be double time for me after quilt club across town, and a visit to the gym haha
    Today's, and yesterday's top choices are marvelous!
    I am very eager to have a look around at all of the blogs this afternoon.
    What would we do without you, Missie Samm, ?? and all of your partners in quiltiness :-D
