It's Thursday, not that it's important, just letting you know... every so often from now until January 2012 I'll be reminding you of a very important piece of information: tickets are available for the PSL Crazy Quilters Raffle Quilt!!! Awesome, amazing, outta' this world, I know, there just aren't enough adjectives... really, have you ever known me to exaggerate? hehehe

Okay, here's the details -- the raffle goes off on February 4, 2012 around 3:00 pm at the PSL Crazy Quilters Biennial Show. You do not need to be present to win, but you definitely can't win without a ticket! Tickets are only $1 donation, that is a small price to pay for a chance at such an amazing quilt and what better way to show support for our quilt guild. The guild will graciously ship the quilt to the lucky winner in the event shipment is required. Click here for ticket information.

For more information about the PSL Crazy Quilters, visit their website at

Here is the link for more info on their Biennial Show, "Quilting in the Garden".

In case you have forgotten what this beautiful quilt looks like, or if your new to my blog, here is "Bed of Roses":

"Bed of Roses" is our remake of the Moss Rose Quilt (1853 Susan Black Stayman). Hand applique by Marian M., Pat N., and Muriel K., trapunto and machine quilting by me, Karen Marchetti. The original quilt is part of the Spencer Collection at the Spencer Museum of Art (University of Kansas). There is also a wonderful write up on Barbara Brackman's blog. If you get a chance, check out these sites, both full of wonderful information!


  1. Keep reminding us! That is an amazing quilt. I'd love to win it, but I don't do checks and I can't buy tickets via paypal or anything? :(

  2. Beautiful - did you make your own pattern - I would love to make my own version
