Quilty Fun Sew Along & Blog Tour Week 4 = BASKETSMonday, November 25, 2013
It is Thanksgiving week in the USA and I have so much to be thankful for. I'm very thankful for my sewing friends. And I'm very thankful that I have a talent, handed down by my mother, to sew and create quilts. Making quilts brings me so much enjoyment in my life.
This week I'm happy to participate in Lori Holt's Blog Tour with her fabulous book Quilty Fun. You will need the book to participate. This is a book for everyone.
This is the fun quilt that the blog tour will be making. If you haven't started yet, don't fret. You can catch up in no time. So click here for all the details.
Week 4 is baskets. I was so happy to be presenting the baskets for my week. If you haven't made them, come on, they are so fun.
To play along with the blog tour, find and download instructions for cutting baskets here. There are only 3 baskets in this quilt and they sew up in record time. Sew cute, too.
I seriously could not stop cutting and making baskets.
I want to make some other projects so I just kept on going.
And still going...
And going, using my favorite fabrics. I wanted a good mix so it looked scrapy but pretty, too.
Finally I had to choose 3 blocks to sew together for the blog tour. It was tough to pick some favorites.
There is a giveaway, too, with this blog tour. You need to post your blocks to the Quilty Fun Flickr Page here. Fat Quarter Shop will be giving away 2 of these Gracie Girl Stackers...
along with one Alphabitties. I know I need an Alphabitties. Winners will be announced on the Jolly Jabber and here on my blog next Monday, Dec. 2.
Put up those Christmas decorations and take some sewing time out for baskets.
