To celebrate my first blogiversary, I held a giveaway for two patterns from my library: House rules 20x30 applique wall hanging by Raggedy Stitches, and Majestic Pride by Sunset Silhouette Designs.
Congratulations Ashley! I have the patterns tucked into an envelope and will be posted today :)
In other exciting news, it is one week from my posting day for the Fabri-Quilt Block Design hop. There are four days with over 60 quilters sharing their unique design tutorials for a 12 inch block using 6 fat eighths provided by Fabri-Quilt fabric company.
I have sketched many interesting ideas, but I've narrowed it to my two favourites to sew together today. Hopefully my final choice will be easier after seeing them in fabric ;)
The schedule is as follows:
Monday, August 31st
Host – Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl
Tuesday, September 1st
Host – Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs
Wednesday, September 2nd
Host – Stephanie @Late Night Quilter
Thursday, September 3rd - My day :)
Host – Terri Ann @Childlike Fascination
Try to find some time to check out everyone's blog and don't forget to enter the drawings for your own set of these fabrics!
Starry Night QAL January blocks complete! Our group made 12 blocks last week for our new quilt along :)
Mary is a local quilting friend who loves to piece, but gets bogged down during quilting. These are 2 of the quilts I machine quited for her this spring :)
Working with local schools has been very fun and the students are pushing me to design ever more interesting layouts from simple subunits. Take a look at the third quilt I helped to make this year!
Memory quilts aren't always cute and cuddly, this t-shirt quilt is all about hard rock and good times!
A local Mom asked me to turn her children's baby outfits into a bed-sized quilt and I happily agreed!
