Who doesn't like diamonds?  I like diamonds =)  I think any baby or new mom might like these diamonds too!  This is a picture of our newest Dollar Menu pattern made up in this adorable Riley Blake line called Bloom and Bliss.   It
was a lot of fun to make, although some serious obsession went into the placement of these blocks!  I even quilted it myself instead of my usual *quilt by phone* approach to getting a sample up more quickly!  We did make up a couple of kits for this, but the Dollar Menu pattern is also available if you'd like to use up some scraps you already have or make it in a particular color combo, plus it's *charm square friendly* as they like to say.  And of course, it wouldn't be limited to a baby quilt.  You could easily make it bigger by making your blocks bigger or adding more rows.

Life's been busy here @ Fab-Etc!  Diane has been teaching some great classes, including Beginning Machine Applique (one spot open in her last class next week).  Sharon has a spot open in the on-going *The Process of.....* techniques class that will be happening the first Saturday of the month for the next 6 months.  We will be *selling* that empty spot each month ($15) and will let you know what next month's *Process of....* will be.  I know this morning they are learning the process of drafting your own blocks.

Speaking of which, I need to unload the dishwasher, grab my stuff and head out the door to be ready for the two back to back classes scheduled today.  Gonna be another fun day at the *happy place*......and watch your *inbox* for the e-mail update I'm sending over the weekend.  Enjoy the beautiful day!!
