    Hi! Can you please tell me where I can get the pattern “Tessie”. I saved the picture of it for 4 years.
    I just retired and now have the time to make it for my granddaughter. Is it available anywhere?
    Thank you!

    How much is a tessie kit and a dogma kit. I would love to do a dogma to raffle to help the humane society. And the tessie to raffle for the american cancer society. babscorbitt@ gmail dot com

    Love it! Hope the pattern or kit comes out soon.
    Here on the northern California coast it was in the high 60s.
    Here the stores don’t even have A/C as it usually is cool here.
    Looking forward to Autumn and Winter.

      We will not be able to kit this project with each fabric but hope to pull together some key pieces and colors to get you started. I will let you know when it becomes available.
      Yes, it’s the perfect “car” project.

    I love the pattern and the quilt. My eye follows around it easily. Hot? I live in Florida. Need I say more? We are feeling a hint of fall in early mornings, though.

    Hi Mary–Yes, it’s hot and humid here in Ohio. Good time to be inside quilting. That Tessie is a “happy” quilt, the kind that makes you smile:)

    Are you coming to the Columbus Country Living Fair? I hope so. See you then. Diane

    My late mother, who taught me to sew, was named Tessie. She passed away in 1995 at the age of 63. My mama loved flowers, especially zinnias. Where did you find the pattern? I love the scrappy look created by the myriad of fabric colors and prints used in this quilt.

      Your Tessie story is very sweet-you could make this quilt in her memory.
