Moda Bakeshop in May.
A Namaste Hug for Gillian was a quilt I made for my first Yin yoga teacher and my friend. We also did our Ashtanga Teacher Training together. She is fighting breast cancer, finished chemo now, but still not out of the woods. It was the first quilt where I used Minky.
new block blog hop for Fabri-Quilt. I designed this block, which has a 3D tactile component in the small white triangle. I wanted to create a secondary pattern when combining blocks; I plan to make an entire quilt and donate it as a Fiddle or Twiddle quilt.
Parisville Weave is a quilt kit I bought from American Patchwork & Quilting Quilt Sampler 2011 magazine. I sewed it up a winter ago and finally quilted it up with several custom designs on Avril, my Avanté in August. When I bought it, I didn't even realize it fit the "modern" quilt criteria at the time, nor had I heard of Tula Pink fabric; I just fell in love with the colours.
seashell runner is a pattern I bought on our second trip to Florida, back in, ahem, 2005. It is designed by a Florida quilter. I had a lot of fun making this unusually constructed quilted and appliquéd runner, which fits, by the way, on both the coffee table in our Florida home as well as on the one in our Ontario home by Lake Erie!
Only five is hard! I could have picked ten! Be sure to hop over to the linky and see some beautiful eye candy, and if you haven't, maybe pick your five and join in!
One more thing to remember, is that today is the last day to take advantage of Craftsy's year end sale on supplies. It ends at 11:59MT tonight, so for us in the east that means 9:59ET!! Hurry! Hurry! I may have already taken advantage of some of the amazing deals, like fat quarter sets that work out to $4/yard Canadian dollars, yep!
If you click here to the sale, I will get a 'leedle' compensation (which we all know will go RIGHT back to them lol) and I thank you very much for
Happy New Year everyone!Thanks for reading, for leaving such wonderful and helpful comments (Rocco is about to test a couple of super-rugged chew toys after my last post, so stay tuned), and for sharing your knowledge, your ideas, and your friendship. I truly have loved this past year of QBL.
