Christmas Time Quilt Kit

So you know how I mentioned that there's been some exciting things going on around here?  Well, this is one of them!

The Fat Quarter Shop has decided to use my One, Two, Buckle My Shoe pattern for their Christmas Time Quilt Kit!

{insert whoops and hollers here!}

I was so thrilled, because
(a) how cute is it made up in Sweetwater's upcoming line of Christmas fabric, called Countdown to Christmas?  Here is some of the fabric:

(you can see more of this upcoming fabric collection HERE.)

and (b) it's kind of been a little dream of mine
to have my patterns in the Fat Quarter Shop! 

They were the first online store that I contacted when I started selling my patterns.  At first, they turned me down and said "they weren't accepting new designers at the time, but to check back later."  I was bummed, but a few months later a friend told me that she saw my patterns in the Fat Quarter Shop!  I was so excited and surprised [thanks Moda!]  But then, to see my pattern featured in a kit?  Well, it's just a fun little dream come true :)

Sherri McConnell, from the blog, A Quilting Life, made up the sample for the FQS.  She did a great job and said the pattern was a "fun one to sew and went together quickly!"  {Yay!  I'm glad to hear that!}
