Project “You are My Sunshine”


I usually come to you on the blog with updates on our block of the month patterns and I have one of those today too but the main reason for this post is to share with you the information that went out in a newsletter today. Not everyone is subscribed to the weekly newsletter and this is another way we can stay in touch as our entire country faces a great challenge in the weeks and months ahead.

I pray this note finds you healthy. We're all thinking about what we should or shouldn't do. Where we should or shouldn't go. It can get stressful and overwhelming.  I decided to face this challenge with a positive attitude and joy in my heart. Growing up in a musical family there were songs and hymns to ease the mind in every situation of sadness and joy. A long time favorite is You are My Sunshine. I know you know it.............. You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are gray. Yes, it's a love song but for us it was about our love for each other and cheering each other up during difficult times. I want to be just a small ray of sunshine for you while we spend extra time at home and here are a few ways I'm hope to do that -

  • I'll be sending you an email with a free pattern several times a week.
  • I'll be doing extra blog posts with a tutorial or another free pattern. I'll also let you know what Lily, Gracie  and the rest of the family are up to.
  • I'm offering free shipping on all domestic orders. Use the coupon code: SUNSHINE
  • Bring as many new patterns from individual designers as possible rather than from distributors. Independent designers need our support too.
  •  20% off digital patterns of $5 or more
  • Special orders accepted. If there's something you need and can't get it with a drive up service at your local quilt shop, let me know. I can usually get things within a couple of days and am happy to help out. Just email me with what you're looking for. 10% off on Special Orders.
  • I'll be de-stashing many of my books and fabric so be sure to check the Books and Fabric sections in the online store frequently.
  • Check out the quilts at $5 BOM. There are some great projects you can get started on right away if you're looking for something new.
  • We have two months left on the Cheddarback Quilt block of the month. There are hundreds of you making the quilt and at the suggestion of one of those quilters, I'll be posting the remaining blocks on March 21 if you want to focus on wrapping up that quilt.  Both sets of patterns will be free until May 1

This is how Gracie is handling the current situation. As you can see, she's not worried about anything and I'm happy she's is living such a happy carefree life. She's extra happy to have Mama home a lot more. 


Here's the first of the FREE PATTERNS. It's called Sparkling Sampler. Use your bits and pieces of fabric to make this little foundation pieced sampler quilt. 
Please stay safe and healthy everyone.  I pray this virus and all that comes with it doesn't impact your family too greatly. 
Together, with sunshine in our hearts, we can get through this. May God bless you and yours.
