It has been a good week as there were many quilting finishes in my studio. I started and finished the top of a quilt and made its back! That is huge. It is going to be quilted by Linda, on her long arm, and its final reveal will been on September 3. Its a big day, as that is when I blog about the quilting and quilt for the Island Batik Ambassador Challenge about the Sweet Tweets fabric line, available this summer (the fabrics for this quilt were given to me by Island Batik). At the bottom of the post is a list of the upcoming blog hops – the Great Outdoors – and YES there will be giveaways! Its really a great big party on the internet so, get ready. I am thinking I will have two giveaways, one next week to celebrate the start of the hop and one on the day I blog (September 3). Many of the ambassadors will have their own as well as Island Batik having a large prize. I’ll post links at the bottom of the page for the hop! The first picture is a little preview of a rep sample I made earlier in the year. This picture is one of the whole collection waiting to be cut into for the quilt.
I also made the back for my playtime plus quilt. You can read more about it here. It is going to Linda, too, to be quilted.
This next project – looking forward is my OMG – to finish this little project. It is a small Halloween piece – and then it will be ready for Halloween! I won it in a giveaway last year. I have a hand project for September, so I wanted an easy one for August so I could have 2 months to work on the hand piecing.
Next week, there will be a blog on WordPress and why I moved to it. There will be some affiliate links to the person who moved my blog and the place that I hosts it. Both, I can highly recommend.
Hope you enjoy your Saturday…and remember to watch for the giveaways and blog hop!
