Hey all, just wanted to let you know, looks like the Rocky Mountain kit & pattern are on sale. If you where thinking about it, now would be a good time to get it!

I have to say that I enjoyed this pattern so much. Everything was soooo accurate. Good designer and good testers. I would do this one again anytime.
My new favorite book is Scrap Basket Surprises by Kim Brackett. I love every one in the book. I'm planning to make two of them already. Check it out. I got mine from CT, so it should be there. My first two choices are Bali Sea Star and Monkey Business.

I enjoyed this pattern more than any I've done before. Maybe it's becaue I did it with the group. Your LQS gals are going to have fun.

Amy - I love the white background. It really makes the block designs pop!! It's gorgeous!

I just want to share a bit of trivia. Our LQS is using Southern Stars as a BOM this fall. I must have bragged about the pattern enough that they heard me. LOL
