I just couldn't help myself and decided (at the last minute) to throw a 2nd entry into Amy's Bloggers Quilt Festival.
Here it is "Spring Basket". For those new to my blog - Welcome! Here is a bit of history...
- My first ever completely wool design
- My first ever published "for sale" pattern
- My first ever Big Stitch quilted piece (ouch -- that hurt -- I Love to FMQ)
- My first ever teaching adventure (thanks Quilters Corners for taking a chance on me)
- My first ever ...
Quilters Corner in Ithaca, NY -- and the partners there decided to give me a chance. (Thank you ladies!).
But wait, I needed something original to teach -- In two weeks time, I designed, stitched and delivered a "Spring Basket" sample to the shop so a class could be formalized and announced in their upcoming Newsletter. See the debut in the Newsletter by clicking here (I was so honored and excited...)
A Passion for Applique Blog graciously reviewed and stitched her own version of Spring Basket.

If applique appeals to you, you should jump over to Carries' blog, look at her beautiful work, and take in her awesome tutorials. (Thank you Carrie).
Well I hope you've enjoyed the "Spring Basket" tour with history. You can see a sweet little Printed Quilt Label tutorial I made with Spring Basket by clicking on the image below...
