Have you heard? The AQS quilt show is coming to Florida!
Daytona Beach, Florida February 24–27, 2016
I am totally stoked about this! Over the years, I have been to Paducah three times, Nashville twice, and Chicago once. But to have this quilt show right in my back yard is totally beyond amazing!
If you live in the south, are you going? If you live up north, can you imagine coming to this quilt show and enjoying the sunshine and sand of Daytona Beach? I'd love to see this show supported so they will bring it back again :-)
Welcome! Today is day three of the Island Batik blog hop Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. Have you visited the other Ambassadors? There will be trips from all over. But today I am here representing the fabric line French Roasted.
You see we were each sent a fabric line to represent some area of transportation. So I took my airplane -
And my train -
and my automobile -
And we headed out to design a quilt that would travel around the world. Well, maybe not exactly.
The pattern is called The Crooked Mile
What better way to arrive at our destination!
This line of fabric was so beautiful and the colors were perfect to make a mile that is crooked.
Island Batik fabric is really top quality. With that in mind, I am giving away a six fat quarter bundle of Sea Salt Sandy during this blog hop.
Leave a comment on this post telling me if you have ever made anything with Batiks before. I always shied away from Batiks before I became acquainted with Island Batik fabric. Other Batiks never felt quite as fine as theirs, so I've been won over after making several projects. The giveaway will be open during the whole blog hop and will close on March 4th. Because of the increasingly high cost of postage, I am limiting the giveaway to US only. Be sure I have a way of contacting you, as I will notify the winner by email.
Wanda Long of Franklin, Indiana, is the quilter all of us want to be when we grow up. At 88 years old, Wanda is happy to live alone, surrounded by her many quilts
and getting out of the house often to volunteer at the food pantry. “My
theory is everyone should have a hobby,” she says, “because one of
these days you’re not going to be working and you need something to
occupy your time.” Watch the video at the link below for your quilting inspiration.
