  1. My favorite thing to do each morning is check your site! LOVE checking in with you every day and seeing what you're up to. I'm wondering if you can help me with something… I'm hosting a baby shower for my daughter this spring. I"m anticipating my first grandchild – a boy – and am over the moon excited. Since I'm into quilting (just barely) these days, I'd love to offer something sewn/quilted as a favor for everyone but since we're expecting 50+ it can't be overly elaborate. I've looked into coasters, fabric bowls, zippered change purses, etc. and haven't found the WOW factor yet. Any suggestions?

  2. I would like to make this quilt, but you don't have some of the colors (medium dot white on green, and medium dot rainbow on white). Are you going to get these in? Can you make up a quilt kit? Thank you!

  3. Hi Susan! We will not be getting in the medium dot white on green or the medium dot rainbow on white. So sorry! We suggest using a different sku. And we will not be kitting the quilt.

    Hope you have fun sewing it!
