Congratulations ladies!
°Ü°
 Thanks everyone for visiting on my day of
the Let’s Twist to the 60’s Blog Hop
and sharing about your favorite quilting too!
Yes, most of us love our rotary cutters
and I know I probably would not have started quilting without it,
but at the moment, the Silhouette Cameo
is my favorite and most useful tool!
Have you ever heard of it?
It’s an electronic die cutter and a totally awesome tool!
I will tell you all about it soon!
Hope you’re having a great weekend!

It’s my day… and a little giveaway… °Ü°

Oh what fun it’s been seeing all the great 60’s
and batik creations made for this hop
hosted by Mary from I piece 2-Mary
and Mdm Samm over at Sew We Quilt!
Thank you ladies for another great hop!
October 3
When trying to decide what to make,
I just had to take one look at our hop button
and knew it would be a Twister project!
I loved playing Twister with my siblings
and was inspired by the game’s spinner
so I made this little mug rug to
go with the Twister mug I found on EBay!
and used some of the Island Batik fabrics I used
to create a Batik version of my new pattern, Sunday Ride
And since this hop is all about batiks…
I made this runner using my Propelled pattern
and used more fabric by Island Batik
Would you like to make this runner?
I have 2 pre-cut runner kits, each with a Propelled pattern
to giveaway to 2 of y’all!
You have until Wednesday, Oct 9 to enter
a Rafflecopter giveaway
So glad you came over for a visit
and hope you’re enjoying this wonderful hop!
Hugs,
                                        

My Retro Chair…

Welcome to my day in the
I’m so happy to be sharing my block with ya’ll today!
I don’t know what it is about chairs,
but I just love them!
…I’ve made a few
quilts that feature chairs!…
so, when I was invited to submit
a block to Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks,
I new it would be a chair!
I usually draw on my computer,
but sometimes it’s just easier to sketch it out
and scan the image in.
This is the little sketch I started with…

…a half chair!

It’s easier to mirror the
half to create a symmetrical drawing.
Of course, I had to make a quilt using my block, lol!
sorry about the bad picture…

It’s part of the this issue’s Designer’s Gallery!

You know how much I LOVE quilting
and designed the quilt with large open areas

Isn’t this flower just perfect?

Here’s a close up of the chair block…
Check out the clock…
just had to add a little bit of bling! he he!
°Ü°
Would you like to make my chair?
I think it would make a fun little pillow or perhaps a bag, or a…
This awesome issue will be available at your LQS

Just leave me a little comment and tell me
about your favorite design in quilting…

New pattern and giveaway

Are you ready for an awesome giveaway?
Have you ever made a quilt with
the wonderful and cuddly Shannon Fabrics?
I fell in love with this fabric after making this scarf
And look at these beautiful fabrics…
I absolutely love the bright colors in this line, Izzy
and this one is made with Spice Market
The fabric is very easy to work with,
you just need to use a walking foot to piece,
and after cutting, I found the best thing to do
was take all my cut pieces outside and shake the “cuddle dust” off… Ü
I also kept my vacuum cleaner close by to vacuum often!
You can find more tips for working with this fabric here.
Both quilts are backed with Cuddle fabrics
Love the embossing…
and quilted with my favorite…
These quilts are so comfortable and warm,
they have become favorites in my house!
Would you like to make one of these quilts?
You can find my free pattern here
and here
But even better, would you like to win a kit
with all the fabric, for both the top and back?
We are giving away your choice of 2 kits!
Each kit has:
A Free Market Crossing Pattern
6 yards of Shannon Fabrics (choose
Spice Market Basil or Izzy Topaz)
Plus a Twin size Quilter’s Dream Select batting
And a $25 gift Certificate from Superior Threads
Total value: $162!
