Happy December everyone! I’m back with the 12th Great Big Giveaway Day of the year. (A week later than usual due to the late Thanksgiving and my crazy holiday schedule.) This month we have 7 great prizes from my sponsors for 7 lucky readers!
Just a reminder, please check your email (including SPAM folders) or back to this post after I choose the winners. Also be sure to check it once you’ve received the email from me, to make sure you don’t miss out any communication from the shop where you’ve won.
1. Southern Fabric is offering a a $25 Gift card to buy anything you want from the shop!
The great thing about these fully woven name tapes is that you can actually design them and see them on the site before they are even purchased! Also some very cute little optional icons/designs to add if desired.
6. Fort Worth Fabric Studio is giving away a 12 piece Fat Quarter Bundle (full collection) of Mediterranean Dream by Quilting Treasures.
To enter to win one of these prizes, just leave one comment. I’ll pick one winner per shop on Thursday evening, December 12th. Good luck everyone!
Today I’m sharing my third project from Vintage Quilt Revival, the Cross Point Quilt.
This quilt is loosely inspired by medallion quilts, with the design focus being on the center of the quilt. The blocks are placed on point.
For the quilting, I decided to quilt pebbles in the grey area and free motion meander in the white area. I won’t lie, the pebbles took a long time! I did a corner a day over a 4 day period.
I just really love this block. Here’s a scrappy version I made during testing. It is a paper pieced block.
The last week has been pretty exciting, watching the book pop up here and there. Besides being available in my shop, you can also find it now shipping from Lee, Katie, Fat Quarter Shop, Barnes and Noble, Walmart…not sure what’s taking Amazon so long but it’s still listed as a “pre-order” there.
So that’s it! Three shares down, three to go! I can’t wait to show you the rest!
I’m home from a Thanksgiving trip to Ohio, trying to get back into the swing of things. (Always a struggle with kids I think!) While I was in Cincinnati, I made my usual stop in at Sewn Studio. I just love that shop. This is owner Julie – she is just great. The picture above is part of their ribbon collection. It’s so beautiful.
Today I spent the morning cleaning my disaster of a sewing room. I have a hard time working in a mess and it had gotten way out of control. Now that I have a tidy space, I’ve cut into my Oakshott Cottons.
I choose a pattern from Elizabeth Dackson’s Becoming a Confident Quilter and paired the Oakshotts with some Essex Linen.
I think I’m going to make about four of these blocks and turn them into a mini quilt. The blocks are larger (17-1/2″ unfinished). I love the classic look!
