A fun project

We sometimes underestimate the influence of the little things. 
– Charles W. Chestnutt

My friend Judy Laquidara and I met at Quilt Market in Houston a couple of years ago. I had been a big fan of her blog for a long time and enjoyed meeting her and getting to know her. She is such a kind and sweet person. I love her chickens too! We have never met so far.

Judy asked me if she could host a Stitch a long and use our pattern Comfort and Joy. Well, this is a no brainer. Sure and let’s GO GO GO. So with the speed of light she has announced her plans on this blog post. I’m tellin you I seriously think she does not sleep! She is going to make two Comfort and Joy quilts at the same time. Holey Moley are you serious Judy?  Anyway, I hope you will pay her blog a visit and maybe decide to jump in there with her fabulous group project. Use some of your stash and have a spectacular Christmas addition to your home or a gift for a special someone who may never recover from getting such a fabulous gift. If I got a gift like that from Judy I would probably volunteer to come clean the chicken coop for life! just sayin.

BJ and I are thrilled she has selected our pattern for this event. We will be watching and cheering along the way! Go on now and check out Judy’s blog.

    Pat, this looks like so much fun! I’ve loved this pattern for a long time — it will be fun to complete it with the Quilt-along! And, I ordered your new pattern with the snowmen (forgot the name just now) but, it’s just adorable! Thanks for letting us know about Judy’s quilt along!

    Girlfriend, forget cleaning the chicken coop! I’ll send you a quilt if you’ll just come visit with me!

    I love your patterns and my blog readers are so happy with this new project. Thanks for great patterns!
