Wednesday Giveaway…

This week’s winner will receive a 6″ x 6″ Magic Mirror. It is made from two 6″ x 6″ plexiglass mirrors, joined together on one side.  Place the mirror on different motifs on printed fabric to see what your block can look like with motif repeated. It is easy to use and has complete instructions. The video shows you how it works!

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, Bullseye!

Vicci Conway took my Bullseye class and she is very excited about finishing her wall quilt, and deservedly so! Her Bullseye pulls you in and makes you look closer:

I think the fabric is all the same print, in different colors. It works really well and it a fine example of how cool it is when you cut up big prints. You only see the flower design in the big corner pieces. Everywhere else the print reads as texture, not flowers.

Thank you, Vicci, for sharing your beautiful quilt! If anyone is interested in taking my Bullseye class on Creative Spark, click here for more info. Or click here to find the pattern on my site.

  

Tidy up with a waxed canvas bin!

I love my waxed canvas bin because it is both functional and beautiful. It exhibits a simple design that is easy to use without any waste. And did I mention that it’s beautiful?

Shop here for Waxed Canvas Bins. Shop at pieceocake.com for more sewing notions. Happy stitching!

3 ways to make easy applique templates…

On Wednesday’s Time Out, I showed 3 ways to make templates using peel and stick laminate, freezer paper, and heavy duty freezer paper. The templates are different enough from each other that you may use all of them in different situations.

Happy stitching!

Wednesday Giveaway…

Sharon Stroud is this week’s winner and she will receive Jen Kingwell’s Half Hex Postcard Project #13. The template and simple instructions are included for hand piecing but the template can also be used for machine piecing. Use the template to cut a variety of fabrics to make a scrappy, happy quilt!
