Show and tell…

Kathrin Brown sent me a picture of her newly finished Bullseye quilt. The colors grab your attention and pull you to the center of the Bullseye. It’s amazing! Kathrin wrote the following about her quilt:

“I won a stack of books from CT Publishing when they launched their new online learning platform “Creative Spark” in November 2020. A fan of paper piecing and modern aesthetics, I started this project immediately when I received the booklet. This 40” project is manageable, I had fabric in my stash, and it was fun to piece (with some redo to get a flat center). I spent about 30 hours of quilting on the longarm to finish it. Started in February 2021 and finished in July 2021.”

Marilyn McWilliams took my Bullseye class on Creative Spark as part of a guild class. She sent photos of her progress as she worked toward making a 40” wall hanging. Here are the Center and Rings 1 and 2. The next photos shows the fabrics she planned to use in the next rings.

And here it is with Rings 3, 4, and 5—it’s amazing! The next photo shows the fabric she will use for the corners and the flying geese border blocks. This quilt allows you to play with color in a way that not every pattern does.

Wednesday Giveaway

Ann Hindmarsh is our winner! She will receive the Clover Embroidery Threader. The threader has a flat piece of bent metal that slips through the eye of the needle. (It is sturdier and easier to see than fine wire threaders.) The Embroidery Threader works on big needles with long eyes.

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! (Look here for the Clover threader, as well as several other great options: Threaders – Piece O’ Cake Designs (pieceocake.com)

Wednesday Giveaway

This week’s winner is Renee Grandinetti! She will receive the Encouragement Sticker Sheet in the mail in a few days.

I really like a good sticker and these are good quality, and just pretty perfect. My favorite from this set is a great motto for Quilters: “Give yourself margin.” Good advice!

In the meantime, 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, including stickers at pieceocake.com

Wednesday Giveaway

Pam Unnash is the winner of this week’s Giveaway! She will receive Clover’s 3/4˝ pins. I sometimes use them to pin my applique in place but I use them a lot on my design wall. I like then on the wall because they work without being too visible.

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!

Wednesday Giveaway

Seam rippers… I have a love/hate relationship with mine. I don’t like having to use one but I do love it when it works well.

Connie Werner is this week’s winner. She will receive one of Alex Anderson’s 4-in-1 tools that has a great ripper, a stiletto, a flat end for pressing and a pointy end to Turing corners inside-out.
