My friend, Kimber, over at Heirlooms by Ashton House is celebrating the publication of her pincushion pattern in the recent issue of Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting magazine. She is hosting a giveaway and Allie, Oliver's sister, is the prize. Visit her blog here for your chance to win. I am the lucky owner of one of her hat pincushions and can attest to the caliber of her workmanship!
Good luck to everyone, but the owl is mine!!
A month or so ago, a few of my quilty friends took road trips to SoCal. They ranted and raved about a shop called Fat Quarters Quilt Shop. Well, now there is a blog to follow. The last post was about Cheri Payne and featured her free pattern, Soot &Ashes. I wish I had followed along. It came out very cute. Perhaps a tad too prim for me, but there are a few of her patterns I love, including Thursday's Quilt and Sunday's Best. Pictures of both are in the collage.
Next year, Cathi of Shakerwood Quilts will pair up with Sue of Quilt Times and present a Christmas BOM. Should be a fun one to participate in.
I did a Christmas BOM once. Did I finish it? No, but here it is.
One more block and a little embellisment to go. It just got put on my sidebar as one I want to finish. If it was finished, I could have entered it here.
Maybe next year!
