The Dogwoods Are In Bloom!

You probably think I’ve lost my mind….Dogwoods blooming in January? I had you going for a minute, didn’t I! A few days ago I asked you all about the designer of some Dogwood fabric I saw in the Keepsake Quilting Spring catalog here. Thanks to several of you, I found out the designer of “Dogwood” is Michelle Engel Bencsko of Cicada Studio. I ordered a sampling of the fabric which arrived yesterday. I really like it and plan to order more in another colorway. I think I will make placements and a tablerunner! Next will be picking out a great pattern for the runner. Michelle is really talented - be sure to check out her website and blog!

Before I go today, Mr. Squash wanted me to clear up a misspelling in yesterday’s post. Apparently "Chatskie" is spelled: Tschotskies. He says I need to brush up on my Yiddish!

I just checked out the other colorway on the Henry Glass website. I love blue, but the burgundys and the pinks are just gorgeous!
