I have a pair of pinking shears that belonged to my great aunt. I've had them 30 years and who knows how long she had them before that.
Anything with a pinwheel.
I'm going with 13. And I love your Cherry Pie pattern...one of these days I'll get to it.

I'd love the spend the day with Linda Hrcka of The Quilted Pineapple. She is an amazing long arm quilter.

One of these days I will get around to making a swoon quilt. Bliss is probably my favorite of your fabrics.

I have 2 Vikings, a singer featherweight, and a Gammill. And yes, you can get Tim Tams here in the US. Target has them made by Pepperidge Farms, and you can order them from Amazon, too.
Love the quilt! I use tans and taupe together also. I like to use a few "almost" white pieces to give it a little sparkle.
I love those floral cutters. Olfa should do more of those.
I have a fishing tackle box that I have used for years to store, Velcro, hook & eyes, and odd ball things I might need someday.

I usually have the most time to quilt on the weekends and nights hubbie works late.
I am 1/4 Irish and have red hair. I'd love to win some fabric.
I am quilting a queen size Irish Chain for a customer. I also have a cosmetic bag to make for my daughter's birthday.
I love all your patterns, but something like Crush where the possibilities are endless would be great.
A sampler quilt would be fun.

My first sewing project was an apron that I probably made for 4-H. I gave it to my grandmother for a Christmas gift. She never used it of course and keep it with my name on it. After she passed away it was given back to me.
I would use option 1 and use the large typewriter print for the back.
There would be a wonderful addition to a newly started stash of orchid.
In my studio/family room. It's a large room (24' X 24') over our garage in a little Illinois town about 1/2 an hour from the Mississippi River.
My husband bought me a Pheasant Hill by Kansas City Troubles jelly roll for my b-day last summer. I have been waiting for just the right pattern to use it. I just might have found the right one.
Jade Heritage has my vote.

I love bags that go over the shoulder with A LOT of pockets.
I wish I had a bee buddy. My mom always loved to sew, now she is just too busy and I work full time. I am about to start an Irish chain quilt for my daughter in white and dark teal. It will be a modern look for a traditional pattern.
Swoon and orange!

I love the cherry pie pattern and several of your older patterns that I can't seem to find time for. Never enough hours in a day. Your fabrics are gorgeous as always too.
