Design Wall Monday 7/8/13


I made up the July set of Alphabet Blocks for the QAL over at Blossom Heart Quilts.  They are as easy as ABC - yes, a bit of a pun, but really - they are so quick and easy.  Hop over and check it out - 5 blocks may sound like a lot, but they really do work up fast.


I was very tempted to do them up in very modern fabrics, but I wanted something a little different, a little fun, and great texture.  So I pulled an old Connecting Threads FQ bundle - a colorful flannel 'Wild Ones' with some Kona Snow. Lots of fun animals, bright prints, and alphabet pieces.


  
I am so tempted to go back to my old broken camera - ugh, my pictures are really suffering  with this new one.  Anyway - two more Flower Patch blocks are done.  I am holding myself back from doing this quilt right up - let's enjoy the process instead. (I have plenty of projects to keep my busy anyway)

**I will be linking up with Pathwork Times



And I will be mailing out my July Red/White/Blue theme Monthly Doll Quilt swap in the morning.  Just a sneak peek!

HELP A QUILTER

Jen over at Quilted Daughter is despirately looking for some 2009 Sandy Gervais "Celebrate Spring".  She has a post up with selvedge # and a photo of the fabric - she's searched the web and I spent a lot of time too - with no luck.  So hopefully one of you sweet bloggers has some in your stash.

GIVE AWAY


Speaking of selvedges - I have a large zip bag over flowing and my person whom I gift these on to has said 'enough'.  Yes, there are some Moda, Kaufman, Hoffman, etc.... ties in there, too. So if you would be interested, let me know in your comment - will ship international.  I will leave the comments open until midnight (est) Friday and will draw a name and contact person on Saturday, July 13. 

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Please put my name in the hat Sharon! There are some small projects I've been wanting to try with selvedges but I haven't collected enough yet.

    Love the ABC blocks so, of course, I had to join the QAL. Your doll and doll quilt are so sweet!

  2. I love your Flower Patch blocks Sharon - I've been meaning to try some!
    I'd love some selvedges but I'm in the UK and I expect the postage is too much!

  6. Your ABC blocks look nice and using flannel is smart. A child would have fun with that quilt. Love your dolly and the flower blocks, too.

  7. Your ABC quilt is going to be great and some lucky person is going to be really cosy wrapped up in it.

    I love the look of your flower blocks, they are fun too, and I bet your red, white and blue doll quilt makes someone very happy.

  10. I would love your extra selvedges. I have saved the alphabet directions to make the grandson's names. Ofcourse I need to wait for X and Y to complete their names. Seeing your blocks I think I should do them all. Joanne

  18. I am a collector of selvedges too. They add up when your quilter friends find out you want them. My long-term quilting buddy gives me her long ones from trimming. I have mine rolled into a big ball for now. A rag rug may be made from them at a later date. You sure did SEW up a lot while you had alone time.

  19. I would LOVE the bag of selvedges. I never have enough to make anything it seems. Do you know where I can get the pattern for the Flower Patch block? I just saw the site for the ABC's today and can't wait to get started on them. Gee maybe I can do them out of selvedges. Joke Joke.
