Summer Sunflower Banner

I finished my Summer Sunflower Door Banner last night. This is a combination of some Lori Holt Farm Girl Vintage blocks.
 Here it is on the front door. My family prefers narrow door banners, so we can still see out the windows and see who is there. My front door is metal, so I have a magnetic curtain rod on the door. It works great!
 Bella spent an hour with me in my sewing room today. Lola had to go to the vet to get more blood drawn to see how she is doing. Bella has NEVER been without another dog even for an hour, so she had a tough time settling down. But, she likes the comfy chair in my sewing room!
Lola is doing better and the vet was impressed with her energy level and how red her gums and tongue were today. The steroids are helping her feel better and be more like herself.
They both seemed more relaxed after being reunited.
I broke down and ordered the Down in the Garden pattern set. It is a Leanne Beasley design, the same designer as my Journey of a Quilter. The patterns are coming all the way from Australia and are kind of expensive, but not as bad as I thought with the exchange rate. Another blogger has contacted me about buying my Journey of a Quilter pattern set and I am seriously considering selling it, but I am not sure how much to charge...New it is about $120 for all 10 patterns, I bought them as a BOM and they came with fabric, so they ran me $20 a pattern plus shipping. They are not for sale on eBay or anywhere else I can find a price. Any ideas? I would like to be fair. Thanks!

  4. I love your sunflower banner! What a good idea! Looks like the Down in the Garden quilt will be fun to do. I have been wanting to do some redwork embroidery. Have you ever done any? I wonder where the best place to get a kit would be.

  11. Your Summer banner looks wonderful on the front door. Great idea to have a magnetic rod.
    I sold a set of 10 patterns for half the cost price and the buyer paid the extra for postage. So for you, $60 plus postage.

  15. Your sunflower banner on your front door looks wonderful.

    With respect to your Journey of a Quilter patterns, I think that $60 + shipping is more than fair. I just started working on mine and am anxiously waiting for my Down in the Garden to come back from the longarmer.
