Quilt Market News

I am excited to say
that my Home Town Pouch,
Pattern by Yoko Saito is
going to be in her booth!
My pouch at Market so exciting!

So if you are going "pop" in the Lecien booth
and see pouches take a picture for me!
I have made one of my personal goals
and also did a lot of Experimenting (word of the year)!

Sponsor News

I was saddened to hear that Pink Chalk Fabricsis doing a storewide liquidation of everything but patterns! It is an ending of an era but the beginning of a new chapter in Kathy Mack's life. I know she will do well in whatever she focus' on because she is very smart and creatively talented. But I will miss her and her wonderful staff!

Thank you Pink Chalk Fabric for taking such good care of us at In the Boon Docks!
You have been an wonderful sponsor!

We will need to keep an eye out for new patterns and tutorials at
Pink Chalk Studio

So lets pay them back and help them liquidate.
This an epic sale and you don't want to miss it!

Flowering Snowball

While on Instagram one night I found an online shop
to buy some Cotton and Steel
Stitch Supply Co
and it has kits available for making this
15" x 15" "Flowering Snowball" mini quilt for $12.
The kit included the paper templates,
fabric for the front and binding!

Stitch Supply Co. is Ann (owner) dream coming true.
One step at a time on an exciting adventure.
(She also has some other free mini patterns available for download)!

Now, if I can try a new technique
for that cost I am all into it!

This wonderful hobby as we know it
can get quite expensive for a project
and then we find that we cannot
do it properly and quit.
Into the UFO pile,
got any of those my friends!
Sewing curves was not to bad
and I loved the results!

It went from a pile of beautiful
Cotton + Steel
to my
fantastic 15" x 15"
Flowering Snowball Mini Quilt

I am not afraid of curves anymore!
This kit makes it easy to learn! The longest thing has been hand quilting!
But I just don't think I wo…

Wanna Win some Aurifil Thread

The Aurifil Thread Giveaway ends on August 26, 2014 enterHERE

My work in progress or WIP
for this Wednesday (I know today is Tuesday)
is hand quilting this mini quilt!

I am hand quilting the Flowering Snowball Mini
with Aurifil 12 wt. Thread using
#2021 Natural White!

As you look at the colors in this quilt
you can see I could have used a variety of colors
if I wanted the quilting to be the main focus
but I didn't in this case.

By using the white you see the beautiful sheen
off the white but it blends with the white fabric.

Aurifil 12 wt. threads are an excellent way of
adding decorative stitches to projects
and hand quilting.

I love the look of how it makes
the quilting pattern stand out
without taking away from the
overall appearance of the quilt.

Thank you for stopping by to look around!
Create and be unique!
