Kindness Matters

Sharlotte!!
Tom drew your name out of the hat. :-D
Thanks to all of you for your fun comments!

If it's worth doing once it's got to be worth doing twice! The Kindness Matters door banner pictured on the left is a gift that I sent to a friend and the quilt on the right is hanging on my front door.
I am ready to pass this Cottage Creek pattern for Kindness Matters on to another quilter. If you would like to try your hand at making one, just leave me a note to put your name in the hat. I'll have Tom draw a name "out of the hat" in a couple of days so there will be time to whip one up before Valentine's Day if you'd like, although seeing this happy bird is nice for any time of the year.

  11. Hi Kim!
    Nice to see you in blogland :) I, too, would love a chance to be picked out of the hat - what a sweet banner - it would look great on my door too! This could be a pass along pattern each time it is finished - we could decorate homes all over the country.

    What a great pattern- I think it would be a great banner to hang on my classroom door- Our class rule is that we are a kind and caring classroom.
    What a nice thing to do to share the pattern. Your winner will be very happy.
    Warmest regards,
    Anna

  31. Well, now, daggone it, I would have loved to have been entered in this draw. :) Just what I get for not checking on you as frequently as I think about you. :) The banner is just adorable, Kim! And I LOVE the quilt you just finished and is hanging in your diningroom. Just beautiful. An afternoon of sewing with the man out of the house sounds wonderful to this girl whose husband is in the house more than he's out of it. ;)

  32. My husband looked at Tom's picture holding the quilt He just shook his head! ROFL With the cold we are having now, I don't think either of them will be outside holding a quilt for pictures. Keep warm!
