Quilting Love.....

My blog is titled Sew Blessed for a very good reason....quilting brings such joy and blessings to my life. 
This week my very sweet quilting student completed this quilt.  She comes each Wednesday evening.  Eliza is an elementary school teacher.  She usually arrives looking very tired....and reminds me of another sweet little teacher that holds my heart. What makes Eliza so special is that she designed this quilt....and she is very new to quilting.  The smile says it all.  Pride, accomplishment and pure joy.  Could she ever completely understand the blessing she is in my life?
Working at QIAD means being part of the "in the know" group.  I love that!  I get to know about new projects, new fabrics and a bit about what is happening in the industry.  This week I got a bunch of "True Blue" goodness....El's new fabric line.  I love it and used it to make a sample of my newest quilt pattern "How Charming".  
Blogging has only added to my quilting enjoyment.  Not only do I learn from other bloggers, but they kindly share prizes  that I HOPE to win.  So check out  to win this lovely prize!!!!
Finally I share my "this weeks project".  Anne Sutton from Bunnyhill is providing a FREE "Block of the Month".  This is block four and each one is cuter than that last.  So time to tidy up the sewing room from my last quilting project and get it all ready for bunnies and chocolate.  What is not to love????  Happy quilting everyone....and may your week be as "Sew Blessed" as mine!!!!
