More Grab-a-bags

These grab-a-bags are a little different to what you normally see as usually you don't know what's inside - mostly mystery items. There are four patterns inside and the bag is only $8.00 so that's $2.00 per pattern, but for our grab-a-bags you get at least one pattern you want. There are several to choose from. Select your favorite pattern and receive 3 more!

This weekend I was sorting out some of the patterns we still have in stock and decided that I could make some grab-a-bags. A little different to what you normally see as often with grab-a-bags you don't know what's inside - mostly mystery items. There are four patterns inside and they are only $8.00  I made several with at least one known pattern which I put on the front so quilters knew they were getting a minimum of one favorite. I think this was more fun. Here they are...

April is Autism Awareness Month

photo of HamishHamish is a young man who is autistic, but he is wonderful to know and as you may know, autistic children have amazing talents. One of Hamish's talents is the ability to draw and he does a pretty good job of it too. My company Arbee Designs, decided to display this talent by developing his drawings into quilt blocks and we are giving back to him $2.00 for every block purchased.

April Stitch Along week 4

This is our fourth block for April, designed by my autistic son for Autism Awareness month. If you have been following along, you know that I've turned his drawings into quilt blocks and he is collecting money from each block sold. I'd like him to save up for a class to further his drawing skills, but he insists he wants to save up for a new computer game. Well, it is his to do as he wishes and the main thing is, he is earning it for himself, which is a wonderful accomplishment on its own.

The Walrus quilt block

If you read my last week's post, you will know that April is Autism Awareness month so I am turning my son's drawings into quilt blocks. I have to say, they make really cute blocks and fun to make too. I'm making one each week for this month of April, but I may go on to make more as I am thinking these blocks will turn into a great baby quilt and four just won't be enough.

April Stitch Along week 1

Did you miss my stitch along challenge rules this week? This month we are going to be doing something very different. You see, it is Autism Awareness month and I thought of a wonderful way to spread the word by showing just how creative autistic people can be. My son is autistic and he has been doing some drawings so I thought I would turn those drawings into quilt blocks and present one each week for the month of April.
