Good Morning! I can't believe it's Thursday already! If you remember from previous blog posts, I felt bad about starting Lori Holt's "Great Granny Along" before I finished more UFO's or Peri's quilt. I have to say, I'm a huge fan of Lori! I buy at least some of the fabrics for the shop from each of her lines. But I also love her projects! She has just started another one....sigh. I guess I'll be doing that one too.

It's a row quilt for beginners. I love doing beginning quilts because they are fast and fun and it's a no-think-just-sew activity. She has not shown the finished quilt so it's a mystery. So far, she's given detailed instructions for choosing fabrics, cutting and sewing the first row. If you want to check it out, her blog is Bee in my Bonnet. You can click on that link and see her fabric choices for this project (which, of course, I love}.

The two fabrics shown on my blog today are from her latest line, Polka Dot Stitches. I really like the fact that every one of her fabric lines coordinates with previous lines. So take my advice and don't go to Lori's site if you don't want to do a new quilt project!

Don't forget to enter our HALLOWEEN GIVEAWAY! Have a wonderful Thursday! Cheery wave from Bev

Awww...thanks Bev.
You are so sweet and I'm glad that you've decided to row along with me...even if you already have unfinished quilts... You might as well jump on the bandwagon of starting a new quilt before others are finished like the rest of us!

I'm out of town and haven't been at computer much. My iPad won't let me see all of your daughters blog for some reason. I look forward to checking it out when I get home to my laptop.

HAHAHA, You're so funny to tempt me with yet another UFO. I've already been to Lori's Blog and have some of her Sew Cherry to make this Row along. No LQS sells her fabric in my area. :( I had to order it.
