We hope life is treating you all well. It is hard for me to believe that summer is almost over . I do LOVE Fall but it is hard to let go of summer weather. Football season has begun and I am excited to going to my grandchildren's games. As we get closer to October the temps decrease and being a fan becomes less comfortable. Last year I made my daughters family a game day. Fun piecing on front in their team colors and the kids jersey # and super warm Cuddle® on the back. Click on the photo for the Free pattern.
I think I might need to make a second one my 8 year old grandson just started this year with a new jersey oh and maybe grandma should have something warm too. We will see.
We also have some great Cuddle kits in team colors already cut and ready to sew. They are super fun, quick and easy. Sew outside only no piecing. If we don't have your colors packaged up we can surely make up a new one for you. We have available; Blue/Yellow [pictured], Black/Gold, Blue/Black, Purple/Gold and Burgundy/Gold. Click on the photo for availability.
Quilt Minnesota has come to a close we are anxiously awaiting the Winners names. We want to Thank everyone that came out this year and supported the hop, we had such a great time meeting everyone.
So enjoy your September and we hope to see you soon
