    I love the Paisley! I like how the challenges have changed and the two categories this year. I have two friends in the Amateur Category, people I have met online through my Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler Group and the McCall’s Contest last year. I’m cheering them on and still voting every day. Thanks for revealing the fabrics.
