Red Rose Farm In The Mailbox!


Or should I call it 
"Happiness In The Mailbox"?


Have you visited
Late Bloomer Quilts?

Oh my goodness!!
Late Bloomer Quilts is
the lovely company owned by
designer Elizabeth Scott.

And I LOVE her designs!

I admit it. 

I have been stalking her blog, shop
and Twitter because I am 
so CRAZY IN LOVE with her first 
line of fabric. 

I am sure she must think I am a crazy nutcake. 

Well, maybe not "nut" cake since I 
am allergic to nuts.

But at least a fruit cake.

On her blog last week, 
she ran a giveaway for a fat quarter
stack of her new line.

And......
well.......

I WON!!!



Do you see the note she included in the fabric?

ME TOO!!

So, in case you are wondering.......

I had thought of making a quilt for 
Ahnalin's new bedroom with these 
fabrics.


But,
I am going to be selfish and make a quilt 

FOR ME!

Yep!!

FOR ME!

So, do you want to know why I love these designs so much?

Well, years and years ago,
I was an interior designer and window display designer
for some Laura Ashley stores.

I was so very passionate about Laura's designs,
and really her whole lifestyle.

Clear, fresh, beautiful florals 
and allovers that recalled
lovely dreams of the unspoiled countryside. 

Dreams of picnics and gardens,
white picket fences,
and drinking tea on the grass,
all the while lovely, lilting music 
would be drifting over a babbling brook. 

That is what Red Rose Farm is for me. 
It reminds me of those peaceful and happy things.

Elizabeth, thank you for this lovely gift.

I can hardly wait to get started!

You are a very gifted and generous designer.

Happy Sewing Everyone!
