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.
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.
