I’ve been working on another Fresh Cottons quilt, “Vanilla & Blooms“…I can’t wait to start adding the applique’d flowers…it’s really going to make this quilt. I have loved making this pattern–my favorite pattern at the moment–it’s simple and quick, and there is something very vintage about the design that I love! I think this might end up being my favorite Fresh Cottons quilt!
Favorite threads right now…the new Soul Blossoms thread collection from Amy Butler…if the threads are this gorgeous…just imagine how beautiful the fabric will be!
Favorite fabric out this month…Sandi Henderson’s Meadowsweet 2 (this is just seven of the 14 prints…I’m expecting the remaining seven pieces on Monday). This collection is even more wonderful than the first Meadowsweet (which I also love)–it has a softer look that I really like!
Oh…and a giveaway to celebrate my 2nd Blogiversary! I just want to say thank you to everyone for all of the wonderful tips, techniques, tutorials, and comments…it’s just been amazing how much there is to learn through blogging. So…if you’d like to enter please leave a comment sharing what quilting topic you’d like to learn more about…or what topics you’d like to have covered in a tutorial. I’ll keep the giveaway open until July 31st when I’ll randomly draw 4 names. The first name drawn will get their choice of prizes…the second can choose from what remains, and so on. First choice is the Verna Piece of Cake quilt above–I’ve loved Verna and made several quilts with it; this pattern is my favorite pattern to use when making a quilt for a gift…fast and fun!
I also have two $20 gift certificates to give away, compliments of Jackie at Canton Village Quilt Works (thank you Jackie)! There are lots of fun things to choose from in Jackie’s shop…I’ve ordered from her before, and her service is excellent!
One more winner will get a PDF pattern of Stephanie’s newest bag design…the Oak Park Bag. Stephanie’s blog was one of the very first I started reading two years ago, and I’ve enjoyed absolutely every one of her posts! Thanks again for two wonderful years of blogging! Have a great day!
