Public Boat Docks in Seeley's Bay

Thursday, December 15, 2011


Good Morning from the Bay, and it is a rather wet and gray day here, but with decent temperatures. I have been giving thought to the many comments about the charms being offered in my giveaway, and thought some might like to have a few different easy but pretty charm quilt patterns for free!
These 5" charms can be so versatile and may be used in hundreds of different patterns, but, I have found a few that possibly you may not have seen, and these are offered by their designers or online store owners for free and free is one of the best ever gifts to receive.

Larene Smith, Designer of The Quilted Button worked with the Quilts of Valor Foundation, with Windham Fabrics and through the events for the Maine Quilt Shop Hop this year offered an original design for Windhams fabrics for the hop shoppers.  A beautiful design in honor of American Soldiers.  Nice pattern and it is Free for personal use.

News from the Hen House was a Blog and then it morphed into a Quilt Shop called Red Rooster Quilts.  It has a lovely pattern which you will like, I am certain you will love this free pattern pictured above.
From Elizabeth Fransson, of Oh Fransson as a frequent blogger on Sew Mama Sew you will find a link to the pattern for this pretty baby quilt pictured above.  Elizabeth also offers many concise and wonderful tutorials too, should you be interested.
These are but a very of the many charm square free patterns being offered by the very talented people in this blog hemisphere we all enjoy every day.
DON'T forget the Blog Hop party  still going on until December 17th. If you haven't had occasion to join in on the fun or the opportunity to enter into the over 250  blog giveaways this week, why not relax with a tour of these great blogs and see what if being offered on them for you the reader, and to discover and make new blogging friends.  Go to the Quilting Gallery list of participants and have some fun. 
Once again I am behind, I meant to complete the baking, but only accomplished the peppermint candy cane cookies yesterday.  I interrupted the baking because our Lions Club had its last meeting before the Wrapping party this  Saturday.  Due to the overwhelming increase in the list of recipients for the Angel Christmas Tree Project, we find we have a total of 108 children.  Residents have been overly generous.  Last night we wrapped up 49 Christmas bags filled with toys and Christmas goodies.  The balance of the bags will be wrapped on Saturday evening and readied for Santa's elves at the various Food Banks to deliver with the Food hampers.
