It’s been a super busy week around here.
Tuesday my quilt was featured on Moda Bake Shop….
Woo-who…that meant 8.5 yards in and 8.5 yards out. If you haven’t seen the post yet you might want to check it out. Fat Quarter shop is sponsoring a giveaway for a jelly roll from the fabric line Curio which is featured in the quilt. It’s just what you need to add to your stash.
Friday I had an article feature in Accuquilt’s newsletter. You can check out this post to read about that.
My daughter Kelli came home for a Saturday sewing day. She brought with these AWESOME quilt tops….
This is Kelli’s scrappy version of Bonnie Hunter’s My Blue Heaven pattern. I am loving it!! You can find the free pattern at Quiltville.
The next quilt top isn’t quite complete. It’s the center portion of Bonnie Hunter’s Fair and Square. It can be found in her book Scraps & Shirttails II: Continuing the Art of Quilting Green.
After seeing this quilt, it flew up higher on my to do list. Notice Gracie in the lower left hand corner. She got all upset that she wasn’t posing on the quilt. She started barking like crazy!
Finally we laid the quilt out on the chair and she jumped right up to pose.
She wouldn’t share the chair with Kelli’s beagle, Puppycat. I snapped a few pictures just to get Gracie to calm down. It was so funny. I shut the camera off and she was out to the kitchen to sit near the treat bowl….crazy dog….but back to the quilt. Isn’t it great!! I love the color she chose for the block centers. It’s just slightly pinkish…it makes the pinks in the string block POP. Did I say I love it….oh, I do!
