A Winner - Sneak Peeks and Must Have Quilty Links!

Hi everyone -- I apologize for the late announcement of the winner of the Benartex 
Bohemian Rhapsody Fat Quarter Bundle
Sometimes it's not good to be late...
Ha ha ha !   Thanks for understanding.

Without further ado ...  Mr Random Number Generator was used to pick a winner from the 76 people that left comments on the Giveaway Post.  
 And the lucky 51st comment was:
Congratulations Karen!!   I'll be sending you an email so I can get this great Fat Quarter Bundle in the mail to you.  
I know you'll love it.   

Thanks to everyone else for playing along.
I'm compiling your Christmas List of wants and will be sure to share more FMQ, Wool Applique, and Redbird Quilt Co designs in the future.   
Ya'll are too sweet!   
Stay tuned for more fun and 
thanks for your support.

Speaking of fun...  
Before we go I want to share a couple of things I've been working on.

You've already seen some sneak peeks of this quilt here, and here.   
Well here is another sneaky peek of the lovely "Garden Lattice" pattern by 
Wendy Sheppard  
Karen's Style!!
The pattern is one of several beautiful quilts and projects in her new book, 
"Recreating Antique Quilts".  
Be on the lookout Monday, November 3rd for a full reveal, review and a Giveaway!  
It will be fun.

Also -- on the cutting table is this sweet collection of fabric, woolens and threads:
This lovely line "Heart's Content" by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts (for Moda) will be paired with some beautiful Bunny Hill Designs woolens and luscious Aurifil threads to become a home decor pillow.

Aren't they beautiful together ?   

This new tutorial will be hosted by the Moda Bake Shop next month -- stay tuned for that too!

Don't go yet !!!  
Do you LOVE Giveaways ?

One last thing...
Since there is soooo much interest in Free Motion Quilting motifs, tips, tricks, designs, and fun I decided to start a new Facebook group that supports open discussion, sharing of images, tutorials, tips, tricks, videos and links. 

You can hook up to this new group by clicking the image above or searching for  Free Motion Quilting Frenzy on Facebook.  

If you're interested in FMQ - AND - you use Facebook, come on over and share with the group.  We're tiny now but I'm certain we'll grow with leaps and bounds and with an abundance of inspiration! 

Thanks everyone and have a blessed week!


  1. popped over and signed up tp the facebook page, not that I have learnt FMQ but this is the push I need!! Love the quilt you shared today

  2. You are working on some wonderful projects! The lovely wool and fabric is so pretty together. And your medallion quilt and quilting is awesome!!

  3. PS, looks like quite a few long armers on the facebook list. Its a great idea though. Good Luck with that!

  4. OOO! your collection of fabrics, wool and thread is sooooo pretty.
