My friend Cindy hosts a really random Thursday link up each week. Isn't that a fun idea? I never seem to hit it on the right day. So, rather than try again next week, I'm chiming in a day late and posting on Friday. (You should check out her super cute selvage box, too.)
Are you ready for some random???
There are still a few spots open for my Scrap Management workshop in November retreat in Fort Collins, CO. This is our 4th year doing a retreat!! Tara and I are working on plans to make it the best one yet. The quilt shown above (my long division quilt) will be one of the prizes this year! You can read more information about the retreat and how to sign up here.
My friend Stephanie wrote up a wonderful review of Sunday Morning Quilts (thanks Stephanie!) and is giving away a copy of the book. If you don't have a copy of the book yet and you want to throw your name in the hat, go check out her post here!
this quilt. I'm so excited I could do a little jig! It WAS well worth it. Now, to pick the perfect binding....
And last but not least, I'm going to Jacquie's trunk show in Minneapolis tonight. I can't wait! I hope I remember my camera. :)
Happy Friday to you!
So jealous for both your retreat, and Jaquie's trunk show. I admire her, too. Have fun! My retreat is in October - can't wait!
Thank you for sharing your projects! I love the little liberty quilt. :) And thanks for the info on the giveaway! I want your book so bad!
Quilters Dream Select is really nice but I like their bamboo/silk when I can't get my hands on Winline 100% Bamboo. It's hard for me to go back to W&N now. Your liberty is sweet.
I always find your work so inspiring and lovely to look at. Went over to Stepahnie's blog and loved the photos there - made me get right onto ordering my own copy of your book, which I have been meaning to do for ages but (nicely for you) it was sold out the last time I tried! Congratulations on the success of your book. I can't wait til mine arrives! I am keen to start with the ticker tape quilt! Have a good weekend!
Lots going on there. I need to get started on a quilting project.
Quilter's Dream Cotton is my go-to batting. I especially like the way it looks after it's been washed and dried.
I'm ready for new batting too, warm and white is so so thin. You and Jacquie?! how fun! I'd love to be there with you two! I'm loving the Liberty stitchin'.
Thanks for the shout out!
Have you tried wool batting yet? I just got my first quilt quilted with wool. It's so light compared to cotton, and so "drapey." Interesting. I like it!
I can't wait to see that last quilt all done. I love those little pinwheels. :-) Have a great weekend!
Oooh, Quilter's dream is my favorite batting. Sadly the shop that carried it locally has closed.
Ooh, such pretty photos! And please link up to Really Random--I know it says "Thursday" but the linky is open for like five days or something! You and Jacquie--fun. Have a fun time! And thanks for the shout-out!
I've never seen the new batting. I've been using Warm & Natural.
I absolutely love Quilter's Dream batting. I used to only use Warm and Natural and decided to branch out too.. I tried a few different ones (Hobbs Heirloom, Tuscany Collection..) but came to love this one. Hope it turns out well for you! :-)
I love your tiny Liberty quilt - and the fact that it was bound with fabric from your grandma. That makes it a "proper" quilt:-) I will be really interested to know how you compare the Warm and Natural with the Quilter's Dream
Long long time blog follower.... I am visiting NZ and saw the new quilt book 'Sunday morning quilts' in a sewing store. I wanted to do a little Amanda Jean jig !!!
I LOVE the liberty quilt! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I'm delighted you finished the stippling on your quilt and I can't wait for a review on the batting and photos from the trunk show. I know you are not supposed to touch quilts at shows, but fondle them for me please. :-)
I'm anxious for your review of the Quilters Dream batting. I'm done a few smaller projects with it, mostly gifts but have bought some for a few bedsize quilts in process...the quilt shop here in town recommends it highly.
I usually use warm and natural too but last year tried quilter's dream cotton for my SIL's quilt. It was really nice. Every time I see close ups of your stippling I study them. The stitches are so good!
I am a complete Quilters Dream convert, I just can't use anything else any more, it quilts beautifully and it's so soft and snuggly.
Oooh, I like that long division! I might just have to check that out!
Love the liberty quilt.
Jacquie was in Mpls????? Crap! I would have gone! I gotta start paying attention. Glad to see you are finishing the chopsticks quilt. Looks great. My guild prez said maybe we could invite you for a meeting in the spring. We better hurry and book a date, I'm guessing.
I really wish I could come to your retreat. I need some scrap storing therapy. Ha ha. Sadly I was too late for the book giveaway. I will put in on my wish list.
I absolutely love Quilter's Dream Batting. While our prayer quilt ministry uses Warm 'n' Natural, I much prefer quilters dream request--it is much more fun to use and the finished quilts are much nicer--at least to my way of thinking.
I am a new quilter and am in the market for a new sewing machine. I was hoping some of you might offer me some advice. If you care to, please email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
