181: Take a Chance on me!
Announcing the raffle quilt for my local guild the Busy Bees. Why am I announcing this here on my blog?…cause I designed this quilt! My friend Diane Coombs helped with the applique design, but the overall concept of this was my design. You can enter to win this quilt for $1.00 a ticket. Please contact me directly for tickets. The drawing for this quilt in November this fall 2009. ….the 19th I believe….I would be thrilled if one of my peeps won this…(course, I wouldn’t mind winning it either, but it would be nice if one of you one it too…
It is queen-sized and machine quilted…..many people from the guild worked on this quilt so it has many hands of love put into it.
Onto other things, I am wrapping up another quilt for a magazine, and presenting another concept with a new line of fabrics not even out yet. So not out yet, I can’t even mention whose line it is or anything else about it….I am trying to get this quilt concept into a leading magazine with a leading designer’s new line as one of the earliest quilts published with these new fabrics. A difficult task at the very least. When I have permission to show you more, I will….but trust me if this works….You will love it!!!
Here are a few more pictures from the pileup on my desktop…hope you enjoy!
Some more from that same day…. I loved textiles before, but now I find my myself buying things simply for the designs, not just if I can sew or necessarily use them daily…. more stuff for the kids to sort through when I die….and I have just started….
This Tigger and Roo totally rock…they list a little, but they rock!
