TTMT #568 – A Little Sunshine

Fat Quarter Lotto Postponed

Hello, my friends!

If you’ve been around for any length of time, then you’ll know that every April I celebrate my birthday all month long by inviting you to participate in a Fat Quarter Lotto. You mail Fat Quarters & Orphan Blocks to me and I enter you to win at least 50 of those fat quarters. I give ALL of the fat quarters away on my birthday and the orphan blocks go on to create many, many charity quilts for children in crisis in Central Texas.

To keep you, my friends, as safe as possible, I have decided to postpone the 2020 Fat Quarter Lotto. When the threat of coronavirus has passed, we will have a Fat Quarter Lotto Party, complete with orphan block collection, and the now traditional live stream drawing!

I hope you’re keeping safe and well. Love and healthy thoughts to you and yours!

See you on Tuesday.

Free Pattern Friday – Virtual Hugs!

hugs title

Surprise, it’s a Free Pattern Friday!

As a person who loves to give and receive hugs, I have found the current social distancing a little trying.

Without being to give out REAL HUGS, I’ve decided to share with you, my online friends, Virtual Hugs!

Make the size you want and give yourself a Virtual Hug from me to you. Share them with your friends and family, too. We could all use a few more hugs right now! ♥

Print or Save Virtual Hugs (Google Drive)

The pattern includes both 6″ & 12″ (finished)

Massive thanks go out to my dear friend and long time pattern tester Amber for getting this super simple pattern tested and for always, always being a fantastic proof-reader!
