Thank you all for commenting on our strip star project, I loved reading all your comments. And I also wanted to thank all my strip stars that sent me blocks for all the wonderful notes and letters they sent me. One even sent me my absolute favorite, Icelandic candy!! That bag disappeared very quickly....before the kids came home from school. (Takk Kolla)
After putting your names on pieces of paper, I stirred them up in a basket, pulled one out and The winner of the new Amma’s Garden fabric is comment number 9, Linda. Her blog is http://www.all-stitched-up.blogspot.com/ So Linda, please send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your home address so I can send some fabrics your way. Congratulations!!
The summer issue of Easy Quilts is on the newsstands now and I am very excited to share with you that I have a quilt in there. This is a great issue with 18 different projects in it that are all quick and simple. It has a special section with baby quilts that can be put together in a jiffy. The staff at Fons & Porter are great to work with, I have really enjoyed it. Great job on this issue. Head out to the bookstore and grab an issue before they are gone.
I made it out of my first fabric line, Baskets and Blooms which features some folk art baskets and flowers. It can be done in any fabric and color combination and it would still look great.
Right next to my project in the magazine there is a great wall quilt designed by the fabulous Pat Sloan. If you haven't seen her blog, head over there and check it out. She is great about posting every day almost www.patsloan.typepad.com
Be sure to stop by the blog again this weekend to see a preview of the new quilt pattern....Poppy Garden.
