So this past month has been one of insanity in my life. One complete with life changes, annoyances, long working hours, trips out of town, meeting unbelievable people, and many other things. So needless to say - I have been a bit busy. Thus the small absence.
But now things thankfully seem to be back to our regularly scheduled broadcasting and I have time to sew (and buy fabric online) again!
First off - can you believe that I totally missed the release of Tula's Prince Charming in online shops?! I couldn't! Bad Tula Troop! Bad! So I quickly rectified this by ordering a FQ set of the entire line. Now I just need to get my hands on the lovely lovely voiles.
Also I got my act together and finished my May bee blocks and even got started on a June set! First up is Elizabeth's blocks in my String Me Along bee. She asked for 15" square in a square blocks. Love making these!
Next up are some crazy blocks for do Good. Stitches May. These blocks were hard for me even with the tutorial. I tried so hard to just go with whatever scrap I pulled out next, but I don't think they have enough angles (too many squares) and the sizes of the scraps are a bit all over the place. Oh well. Hopefully they can be used and appreciated once the whole quilt is done!
Finally, I worked on the June blocks for do. Good Stitches which were these awesome slanted diamond blocks! These were so fun and easy to make, the tutorial was super simple, and I cannot wait to see the finished quilt!!
Now onto what you all have been waiting for!
While I was totally absent from the internet this past month I surpassed 10,000 page views, plus the Bella Solids Parade was conducted and concluded! For the parade I made another of my Cacophony of Color mini quilts with 31 different Bella Solids courtesy of Fat Quarter Shop, which means I have TONS of left overs!!
So the giveaway is for a HUGE STACK of Moda Bella Solids (scrap to over 1/4 pieces) as well as a ziplock bag full of small scraps!
To enter is easy! Plus you have 3 chances!
1. Leave a comment - it can be anything from a simple howdy to a story about how quilting has caused you to be known in all your LQS to the point that the employees have a picture of you behind the counter so that they know when they see you they are about to have to earn their paychecks by cutting 42 pieces of fabric.
