Design Wall / BOM's Away Monday

Mi Amore
The voting is still going on for the McCall's Quilt Design Star 2011 challenge. This is the FINAL round. You can vote once a day from any device you have internet access with and can leave a comment on what you like about the quilt, how it speaks to you, etc. Thank you for your consideration as you look at the 12 quilts. Mine, 'Mi Amore' is shown on the left.

I've been able to get back to customer projects and have made significant progress on a t-shirt quilt that was commissioned by the mother of the owner of one I have already made. This mother was clearly supportive of her daughter's pursuits and had plenty of used and unused t-shirts and dress shirts with licensed embroideries to show for it! It is fun to imagine the adventures that people have been on while piecing these quilts together. I plan on writing a tutorial for doing this, at least a checklist of tasks so if any of you are interested in making your own in this fashion and would like some guidance, you can! Follow along with my blog and you'll get to see it soon. The border is the 'periwinkle' color of the Lumiere Sateen --the same line of fabric used in Mi Amore. This will be on the back as well.

Personal projects--I have the EQ7 BOM - October Opportunity block finished (shown right).

Ireland!! Deadline extended to Nov. 1 for full-payment discount. Join me on a fabulous adventure in Ireland, June 5-15, 2012.

Thanks for stopping by....Thanks for voting! Don't forget to leave a comment at the bottom of the voting page. Thanks so much!!
