    oh wow! that Moss Ross block took my breath away. I am a little into pink and green right now. The Advent one…hang on….One Happy Family made me instantly think of my mom, and how much I miss the Holidays with my family. My girls and I let me honey have aweek to himself in Jan and celebrate “chrsitmas” with my family then, but it’s not the same. I am goign to have to make that one for my mom and I each, maybe a pillow or wall hanging that we can both have and think of each other. And just to be fair, I have some florals that would look GREAT in the Posy Power block. I might have to take that and blow it up to feature some of those florals I don’t have any other ideas for!

    Keep up the good work, and I LOVE your magazine. Sorry you need the Janitor to come and mop up all my gushing here =)

    How great that McCall’s Quilting had 3 designers chosen for this special issue! Color and fabric choices for each of them are great. Guess that’s why I always love McCall’s Quilting! Congrats on being chosen for this issue and please enter me in the drawing. I’d love to win a copy of this issue but if not, I’ll be hitting the stores to find a copy …. and more fabric!

    Love the Moss Ross, and I finally understand the significance of the purple and pink in an Advent wreath.
