The first 3 are from a new collection I am calling the simply mary colletion by Mary's Cottage Quilts. I am very excited about these patterns! Actually the first two are the same quilt! I wanted to make them look totally different and I really like the way they both turned out - each has its own personality. I also wanted to give you all a little background on how simply mary came to be so here goes:

At work I have meetings and sometimes I just happen to doodle on the sides of my papers (hmmm imagine that, me not being able to pay attention) anyway, these doodles are turning into some very cool quilt designs that I am excited to share with you. Please feel free to make these quilts your way, in your favorite colors… “own them”. I hope you will get as excited about these simple and graphic new patterns as I have and want to make them all!

Sea Breeze - made from HOMETOWN by Sweetwater for MODA (this quilt will be in the MODA booth at Market)

Sea Breeze again - this time I made it from a bunch of my favorite scraps in my stash (LOVE that piece in the center of the 4 blocks - all I had was 1 fat quarter).

Modern Love - made from HOMETOWN by Sweetwater for MODA

On The Run - a redeaux of one of my FAVORITE PATTERNS of all time. Made with KUMARI GARDENS HOLIDAY by Dena Designs for FREESPIRIT (along with other stuff)

Cross Country (the other redeaux)- Made with LITTLE GATHERINGS by Primitive Gatherings for MODA. (this quilt will be in the MODA booth at Market)

Glad Tidings - Made with COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS by Sweetwater for MODA

I hope you like them.. Oh yes, I am having a GIVEAWAY!!! Yay you!!! Just leave me a comment and I will draw 3 random names for two of my new patterns from the simply mary collection!! I'll draw the names on Monday when I get back from market.

Have Fun and Happy Quilting!!
