Look at this cute version of Pugcasso, by David King. This pattern was our first by David King, and was all by itself for a season, trying hard to get along with Toni Whitney's wildlife and Debi Hubbs' chickens and crows. Now we have four pups in the litter, but since he was our first, he'll always have a special spot in our hearts. Check him out, along with Sebastian the Jack Russell Terrier, Butch the Black Lab, and Sundance the Golden Retriever on our website... www.bigforkbaycottonco.com.

As many of you know, we started a Mystery Quilt last month. Here are some photos of Step 1....I just love all the different fabric choices! You can see that some are scrappy, some aren't. They are going to make fabulous quilts. It's not too late to join us....we're only through Step 2. Just send an email to lynn@bigforkbaycottonco.com and I'll get you up to speed with Steps 1 and 2. Step 3 will come out on March 14th. I can tell you now that it is a very quick step....it will allow plenty of time to get caught up!

Jodi's Quilts & More in Eureka, Montana recently held a retreat and many attendees worked on Toni Whitney designs. I thought you might like to see Cheryl Bowland's version of Elusive.
