Last Monday I put together my Card Trick and Grecian Squares, but could not decide on a border. I decided on the one with the dots, third from the left in last weeks photo. I was going to use the squares (4th from the left) but found I didn't quite have enough of that, so the dots it was.
How did you get on with last week's challenge and words? Did you put something together? If you haven't done so yet, there is still time. Check back to last week's post for details: Stitch Along Sunday week 1
I love making this easy mouthwatering dessert on special occasions. It is easy to make and can be prepared well in advance. You do need space in your fridge though.
As a young girl I have always admired the Livingstone Daisy. I am not sure if it is the bright colors I love or the icy look it portrays, I just find it delightful. Livingstone Daisies only open in the sunlight so it was a good thing I designed this block on a sunny day.
Oh yes, I need to tell you about our advertisement in the latest newsletter. We have a bunch of patterns that we are going out of. This will be the last you see of them so we are offering them at crazy low prices starting at $2.99.
Inspiration in the pantry? I was fixing pasta for my dinner today when I thought, hey the farfalle would make a pretty good quilt design so I photographed it.
I am excited to share that we now have two more download patterns available. These are two of our popular patterns "A Freshness of Spring" and "Entwined Star".
Last Monday, I put together two blocks "Card Trick" and "Grecian Square" to see how they looked. They coupled well together I thought so this week I made some more to make a small quilt. I wanted to share the requirements with you. I made a total of EIGHT "Card Trick" blocks and SEVEN "Grecian Square" blocks. The blocks are 6" finished blocks.
After seeing some incrediable art quilts recently, I realized how much I missed art quilting myself, mostly the challenges of coming up with something based on fabrics, ideas or words. Thus I decided "Stitch Along Sunday" should be born. This program will be based on art quilts using any media and I hope some of you will join me. We will start out simple and get a little more challenging as we go along. I would love to hear any ideas on how to make this a real fun program.
I love receiving new fabrics, I'm sure you do too. This week I received some of the newest Hoffman Fabrics. There were so many to choose from, but I couldn't get them all so had to settle on just a few.
