    Hey Konda! I haven’t seen this blog until Ashley gave you a shout out on hers. You are so very talented!! I didn’t know you had published books either. Where have I been? I love the lattice pattern but I like the blues and browns of the bonus star throw. *Ü* Missy
    p.s. the cupcake quilt was too stinking cute!!!

    My favourite is the Five and Dime. It reminds me of the quilts my friend’s grandmother used to have at her house. We spent a lot of time at her house when I was younger. 🙂

    I may have missed the dead line but I wanted to post anyway…I love charm packs so I am always looking for patterns to use them with. Can’t wait for this book to come out. My favorite is Charming Lattice..but like you said it may change tomorrow because they are all so pretty.

    I love the Charming Lattice! It doesn’t look like a charm quilt, and I never seen a pattern like that for charms!

    This looks like a fun book!
