Log cabins for a friend….
today’s post has dual purpose….first showing a little project that my friend Luke Haynes asked me to do for him….and second is a prize is being offered as part of my guest post over at Quilting Gallery today.
First, Luke asked me if I wanted to work with him on one of his art quilts. I said sure, and here is the beginning of that.
He wants me to make a log cabin top for him to do his amazing art work on. So basically I am gesso-ing up a canvas for him…except it’s a quilt.
And log cabins are simple enough, but then Luke wants this out of all recycled materials. I think this is an awesome statement and comment…..but I am feeling very stretched with the fabrics he gave me to work with…some are very “shreddy” and most are very fluid, much more fluid than the quilting cottons I pretty much live in. Did you notice the flannel backed tablecloth up there?? I’ve already melted one square because I forgot it was plastic.
I hope I can do this well enough for him…..I am certainly being stretched I can tell you that.
And secondly, here is the prize portion from my post over at Quilting Gallery. All you need to do is just comment on something that you really like or enjoy from visiting around the Blue Nickel here today a little bit. I would love it if you followed me on Facebook or Twitter and signed up to get every post I ever write again….but I am not going to require that. If you are a regular reader, and just happen to be dropping in, then tell me what you would like to see more of here on the blog. Leave a comment of something along those lines, and I will draw a winner Sunday morning the 18th.
Oh, here’s the prize, a nice layer cake from Moda…calorie free and all.
And I will probably throw in some other goodies as well, but this is the main prize.
So let me know what you think about the Blue Nickel….AND while you are here, you might as well mosey over to my other online gig, Generation Q Magazine. We are going to print soon, and even though we have achieved our Kickstarter Goal, this program is still going, and a great way to help us get launched and guarantee that you will get our first issue or even our first year of issues.
