Bree: Perfectly Picnic and GIVEAWAY

Hello!!  If you are a reader of mine, welcome back!  If you are here for the Benartex Bree blog hop, welcome to KD-Quilts!  I’m a stay at home mom of two boys who keep me busy.   In my spare time I quilt.  My specialty is memory quilts, but I LOVE playing with pretty fabrics and designing things to make my home cozy.

I love this line: Bree for Benartex fabric.  It screams summertime to me!  This print is my most favorite.  I’m thinking some major yardage is going to be needed.

  2. I like to sit outside on the deck just after dusk when the temps have dropped and listen to the night creatures start calling out their songs and watch the fire flies signal each other. Since I live in a very small town in the country the stars go on forever. It’s a calming feeling after a long day.

  9. My favorite summer activity is walking barefoot on the beach…about 6 miles! We have a route that gives us a good workout but it’s so much more pleasant than anywhere else. We love the beach!

  13. The place mat is so cute and usable! I think my favorite summer activity is to stay in with the AC going! It gets SO hot and humid here in Louisiana, but we’ve been having a lot of rain so that has helped with the temps, but not the humidity so much. We usually go to the beach once a year, but that hasn’t happened in a couple of years.
