Do you remember when I told you about this quilt pattern I'd found on eBay? It's called Summer Picnic.
I asked blog readers if anyone knew about the pattern company, Hen House Designs, and the only thing any of us could find was a quilt shop with a similar name. Well, let me tell you the rest of the story.
When my pattern arrived, the back of the pattern contained the name of the designer, Monice Moffat, and her email address. I emailed Monice to tell her how much I liked her pattern and to find out what other patterns she's designed and where I could find them; that began an email exchange between us.
I learned that Monice has an Etsy shop, Nana's Hen House. If you click on the shop name, it will take you to her shop where you'll see she has a couple of different pattern designs. She has a beautiful tulip pattern called Whimsical Hearts and Tulips, a table runner pattern called Folk Art Flower Basket, Summer Picnic, and a brand new tablerunner pattern that's similar to the Summer Picnic quilt above, but it's a runner and she's done it in wool. She even has a couple kits listed if you're interested.
But here's the really cool thing: Monice was kind enough to send me a Summer Picnic pattern, like the one I bought, that I could give away to one of you. Isn't that really nice?! Please leave me a comment saying you'd like to be in the drawing and I'll enter your name. I'll draw a winner Thursday night to be posted on Friday's blog post, so remember to come back to see if you've won. And say hi to Monice in your comment, if you'd like--I think she might check in on us at some point. Thank you, Monice, for your generosity!
