Wednesday Giveaway – A Special Type of Bouquet!

Our winner will receive a pack of EPP papers to make 12—8″by8″ Bridal Bouquet blocks. I have always loved this pattern. I want to make it but, but haven’t found time yet. However, you can find lots of beautiful examples of this type of quilt by googling “Nosegay Quilt” or “Bridal Bouquet Quilt”. The photo below is just one of these.

Leave a comment/reply on this blog post to enter the drawing. A winner will be chosen by the random number generator tomorrow.

I’ll be back with another Giveaway next Wednesday. Until then you can shop for all sorts of sewing notions, books, and other fun stuff at pieceocake.com!

Show and tell… Birds in Toyland!

Pam Hill was in my Birds in Toyland class and she finished her quilt… Isn’t it wonderful!

Show and tell…

Thanks to Sue Kersey for sharing this photo of her Butterfly Garden quilt. She wrote:

I just loved this pattern so much and this was so much fun to make and quilt.  You have been wonderful to share so much with us all during this pandemic. I so look forward to your emails.

I have spent the last two years using the wonderful fabrics & patterns that I had in my quilting studio.  I knew all my stash would be needed someday and I feel so lucky to have enjoyed it during this stay at home time in our lives.

Butterfly Garden made by Sue Kersey

Sue has a very nice stash of fabrics :-). I love the colors in the butterflies and the way she kept the colors moving across the face of the quilt. Well done, Sue!

Sue’s butterflies are vertical whereas mine are flying on the diagonal. Both are good choices and I’m happy to have the opportunity to see the blocks in a different way. That’s one of the best parts of any Show & Tell!

Happy stitching to you all :-).

Wednesday Giveaway – Sewline!

Valerie Leclerc will receive the Trio Mechanical Pencil! This pencil from Sewline comes with white, black/gray, and pink 0.9 mm chalks. It is handy to have three colors in one pencil especially if you have limited space in your traveling sewing kit.

I’ll be back with another Giveaway next Wednesday. Until then you can shop for all sorts of sewing notions, books, and other fun stuff at pieceocake.com!

Show and tell, Butterfly Garden…

Rebecca Schnekenburger sent in this photo of her happy and colorful Butterfly Garden quilt. She wrote: “After seeing your last email about the free pattern offer, I thought I would share my version of your Butterfly Garden quilt. I made it twelve years ago as a baby quilt for my granddaughter Becca Faith.” It is truly perfect for a baby!

If you missed it in my last newsletter, I am offering the Butterfly Garden ePattern to you for free until December 29, 2021, as a Christmas gift. Click here to find it.

Thank you, Rebecca, for sharing your lovely quilt with us!
