New Pattern & Tour De Cure!

Hello Quilters!

I have added a new pattern to the Quiltville.com website! Before I give you the link, Please take some time to read the following message. There are two times a year I send out notices asking for pledges as there are two causes that affect my family greatly. One is the MS150 ride for multiple sclerosis in the fall, and this one today is in regards to the Tour De Cure for Diabetes which is June 2nd & 3rd of this year..

2007 Tour De Cure

*URGENT!!* Your help and support is greatly needed!

Every year my husband Dave cycles with a group of over 300 riders in South Carolina in the 150 mile 2 day ride called the "Tour De Cure" for diabetes. I do my part by providing massage therapy for the cylists after each leg of the ride! This year's Tour De Cure will be held on June 2nd & 3rd, 2007.

Each mile he will ride, each dollar we will raise will be used in the fight to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. This is our 5th year of being involved with the Tour De Cure and I hope it will be our best yet!

No matter how small or large, your generous gift will help improve the lives of the more than 18 million Americans who suffer from diabetes, in the hope that future generations can live in a world without this disease. Together, we can all make a difference!

For 11 years I have provided quilt patterns on this website free of charge. If you find this site to be beneficial to you as a quilt maker, I ask that you please consider making a pledge to help The American Diabetes Association fight diabetes as a way to say "Thanks!" for all you find here.

If you can spare even $20, please think of someone you know who is living with diabetes daily and all that they go through and all that your donation can do to help. If you know someone with diabetes, PLEASE donate and forward this on to those who have family members with diabetes. Your continued support is necessary to help find a cure for this disease.

Thanks for all you do!

As for the new pattern, It's called Crayon Box!

It's a GREAT way to use squares, bricks and strips.....and almost NO matching of seams anywhere! The pattern makes a 12" block. Have fun!



  1. Nice quilt, thanks again for generously sharing the pattern.

  2. I think the bright sashing really made it sparkle! Not to mentione the lime green border! Another great quilt!

  3. I came to your blog over and over becaus it is a source of inpiration. You have the generosity to share your technics and I've learn a lot with your quilt tutorials. Thanks. This quilt is, once again, a very beautiful quilt.

  4. Cute pattern Bonnie and scrappy just like I like them. Tour De Cure for Diabetes research is a great cause and I'm glad to support your husband as he participates in the effort to raise money for the cause.

  5. Bonnie, I think it is wonderful that both you and your husband dedicate your time and talent to helping to raise money for medical research. I just made a small contribution to sponsor Dave for his ride in June and when your MS walk comes around will do the same for you. Thank you for all you do!!! May God Bless you both! ~Bonnie Minor
