This---That


I can share one of my projects.  This is 'Nabby's Dowry' - a quilt along with Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts.  Rather than adding a border, I made my setting triangles larger so it floated the design.



A lot of stitch in the ditch, each surround block had a little button added to the centers, and then a few echo rows around the piece.

And now about this lovely fabric - a lot of you OOOO'ed and AAAAAA'd and wanted to see what I was making with it.  Wellllllllllllllllll



I'm not playing with it, but two of my followers will get to. These are twice the charm - 22 strips that are 5.5" wide - of "Tyler" by  Yoko Hasegawa for RJR fabrics.  My blogaversary is Oct 16th (I have a blog hop give away coming up and I don't want things getting confusing) so I am opening up comments for this give away and will announce the winners on the 16th.  One roll is for my USA folks and the other roll is for all the Out-of-States followers.  Just let me know where you are from and be sure I have a way to contact  you.

Now, time to clean my machine, put in a new needle, and pedal to the metal all day!!

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  3. Your quilt is stunning! Love the fabrics you used and the way you made it your own with the little buttons and floating blocks. That border fabric is sweet...looks kind of Canadian to me, giggle! I finished piecing my Nabby this week, but it may be some time before I get it quilted. Good for you!
