A special thank-you goes out to everyone who helped make this book a reality. To C&T Publishing for letting us come up with an idea and run with it. To our fabric company, Moda, for allowing us to design fabric that stays true to our style. To Michelle Odle and Brian Clements for dropping everything to quilt a project that was due yesterday. To our families for putting up with and supporting every idea we dream up (and there are a lot of ideas). To our many loyal customers who followed us from quilting to scrapbooking and back again. Finally, to the kids of Sweetwater, Jordan, Bryce, and Cash. You are our inspiration.


This book is dedicated to

everyone who has supported

us for so many years. …

To the shop owner who orders

our patterns,

To the mom who uses a Sweetwater

piece of patterned paper

in her scrapbook,

To the seamstress who chooses

our fabric for her next quilt,

To our blog readers who regularly

check to see what we are up to,

Thank you.
