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!
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!
A very sentimental Mom asked me to make a bed-sized quilt from her children's baby clothes, and this is going to be one beautiful memory quilt!
