If you are on facebook you may want to like Bigfork Bay Cotton Co. and Traci Suzanne Marvel... Traci sends out updates and has giveaways.  Right now they are looking for a name for their new pattern. If you friend Traci on facebook and scroll down to May 17 you can see the pattern.  It is a beautiful eagle with petroglyphs in the corners.  I wish I could post a photo but, my computer is not letting me on facebook right now.. I will try later and send it if I can.  Please send me any photos of your BFBCC quilts that you have finished.  I am currently sewing the pieces down for PEACE and turning it into a powerpoint presentation.
