It's been awhile
You might have noticed the amount of time lapse between my posts. The reason
is two fold: I posted but then couldn't find where it went, duh! and I broke my neck! This is every Mother's nightmare...in
this case my husband and children's. I've healed and had my rest. I am back at designing, lecture schedule is
up and running again and I have be working to update my website for two days. I've started creating peace by piecing.

When beauty calls
I can never spend enough time among my fabrics and quilts. I use fabrics and
fabric lines from the leading manufactures of fabric in the quilting business. I do that for obvious reasons, but an
added bonus is that I get to look at them here in my Studio/Store. I can't describe the beauty-Ah!

It's Here!!! Along the Garden Path, Dorothy Ann's sixth McCall's quilt
6:58 pm est
Hi everyone! And, I must say that I don't know who 'everyone' will be, maybe no one. I've had
this blog with my website for awhile but due to time restrains and computer crashes, I've not used it. Well, here goes.......
McCall's Quilting Magazine is my favorite place to publish my quilts, well, who wouldn't want to publish with them.
McCall's staff is wonderful; they are professional, friendly, helpful and well, just great all around. Several other
of my designs have been published or taken to Market for the purpose of showcasing a fabric line, actually several lines.
These quilts are special too. You can see most of my published quilts and a few that I have designed expecially for
my web customers on www.peacebypiecing.com
Thank you whoever you are. I don't know how to find this blog myself, it will be interesting.

The rising price of cotton, what about us?
11:26 am est
What is this? I have read in several places that the price of cotton is expected to double in price in the next year.
What goes up, does it ever come back down? My last fabric order reflected a significant rise in the wholesale price
per yard. I wondered if it would be reflected in the cost per yard at the retail level and went surfing. What
I found is that indeed the price of retail quilting fabric has risen from about $8/9 per yard to $10/11 per yard. Wow
and oops! Several reasons were given, but the bottom line is what about us?

New Fabric Choices
Hi, My employees, Maryline, Judy and I have had the most rewarding two
weeks. We have sold so many kits that we wear ourselves out every day cutting, kitting and mailing them.
I'm sure there are those who are beginning to wonder if their kits will ever arrive. They will unless we expire from
exhaustion. They are coming; we just couldn't have imagined just how successful the quilt would be. Thank you
so much, everyone. Dorothy Ann
