Sorry it took longer than I expected to get this posted.
My Mom was in the hospital again, so this past week was a little busy.
Here's what I have to share!

Awhile back I won some things from Aurifil on IG. Included was a new Kona color card (well it was, now there's more colors...who can keep up?!) So I thought one of you may be able to use my old one. It is only the 243 colors but still quite useful. I also have a Sundrops by Corey Yoder mini charm pack, a spool of variegated Aurifil thread, a Moda tin and a pack of bobbin/spool holders. I forget the technical name of these little guys. If you'd like a chance to win, leave a comment letting me know your favorite fabric designer!

I gave up on my Halloween quilt for awhile. I was just so tired of looking at it! I worked on it for a few minutes here and there for the past year and needed a change of scenery. I found quilt pieces already cut so I pieced this together. It's made with Gossamer fabrics by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery. I love working with Art Gallery, no frays to deal with!

I have the first direction of cross hatch quilting finished. I'm hoping today I can get the other direction done.This time I used 1 inch tape. I wish they would make quilting bars on walking feet more stable than they do. So frustrating! For better accuracy, I prefer tape.

I wanted to share something else quick. Did you know Hobbs Batting also makes pillow forms?? I didn't know that! I'm kind of picky about the ones I buy. I hate when they slouch over and sink down. Anyway, I received these from the company and they really are fantastic! No affiliation, I just like them :)

I will leave the giveaway open until Monday morning, Aug 21st, 9 am CT. USA mailing addresses only. I hate doing that but international postage is so expensive. Don't forget your email address in the comment if you are a no reply blogger. Thanks for stopping by!

  9. I really admire Janet Clare. I have a project shelved with some of her first line and have been so tempted by her wordsmith line!

    The only purchase I made at our recent quit show was a kon a color fabric panel, it would be wonderful to have a card! Thanks for thinking of us and I hope your mom is improving!

  10. My fav fabric designer is Cotton and Steel. I adore Tula Pink but have never purchased any of that fabric (yet).
    I don't blame you for giving up on the Halloween quilt for that soft and muted beauty.
