Quilt With Us

No quilts were harmed in this photoshoot & A Giveaway!

Don't worry no quilts got harmed (or dirty) during this photoshoot. There was a bug on it at one point but I shooed him off and told him to go find his own quilt. Melissa and I tramped out through the meadow next to our building to take this photo. It was a good afternoon break since we were having an unusual sun break and around here you have to take advantage of them when you can! Back to the topic - It was really fun making this little baby quilt. The Quick 'n Easy Color Block Quilt is a pretty simple pattern that comes with a 4-1/2" ruler. The kit would make a great gift for a beginner. I've been feeling a strange attraction to bright fabric these days and I'm not sure where it's coming from but I've made several projects out of the Bold samplers and this one uses the stack. It was fun to play with the fabric arrangement and this time rather than random I decided to make a gradation and I'm really happy with it. To keep the cost down even further I decided to sew it Quilt as you Go. My new group Fast & Furious has made me look at every project I do and see if I can figure out a way to make it Quilt as You Go, it's like a challenge now :) Karen and I made a Quilt As You Go Video for those of you who haven't done this method before, watch out it's addictive!

As part of our "summer of samplers", one lucky commenter can win the Bold Stack featured in this post. Simply leave a comment by 7/7/10, and I will draw the name of one lucky winner using a random number generator. Good Luck!

I have never done any quilting by machine. I always piece by machine and hand quilt. I will try this method. I am in bad need of new place mats! Looks like it is both fun and time saving! In my busy life that will be a big plus! Love your fabric and love your kits!

I think I'm going to love "quilt as you go" since most of my tops are stashed and waiting to be quilted... I would love to actually finish something. I'll let you know how I make out with the technique! Thanks

Absolutely love the fabrics and the technique. Will have to try it on a tablerunner.

Thanks!

I am excited to see the video...but it will have to wait till I get home from work. I LOVE love LoVe brights so winning this stack would be a real treat. Count me in.. I might even have to try my own gradation effect!

Guess that makes stitching in the ditch a lot easier! :)
