Tie One On Blog Hop – Day 1

Welcome to the Tie One On Blog Hop – Day One!

From now until the end of September, a bunch of my friends, old and new, will be hosting a Tie One On fabric day on their blogs. You get to see what they created with my line and then comment on their posts. Each day will be a different friend. And you can win a Fat Quarter Bundle of Tie One On by commenting on their posts. Some of them are giving other stuff away too, and I am going to try to post each day here to with a small little treat for one of the comments here or on my Instagram feed. Basically a smorgasbord of Tie One On posts and prizes!

So today for Day One, meet my friend, Teri Lucas! Teri is a New Yorker who took over my job at Generation Q a few years back. She has been working in various places in the Quilt industry and is always super encouraging and supportive of many talented people out there.

Teri, of course, is pretty talented on her own as well and cooked up some fun log cabin action. Check out her site for her Chase quilt, a quick little  mini interview with me, and the chance win your own fat quarter bundle!

Today’s Blue Nickel Visual Contributions (BNVC) to the Tie One On Blog Hop……..

I just have a few shots of a variety of projects created from Tie One On to share.

How cute are these Owls! These look to be a variation of a pattern by Rana Heredia and you can get that pattern from her Etsy Shop.  Sally at my Day Job made these! She had a great  time playing with them she said!

And then there are these classic Log Cabin Chicken Pincushions!  Sally made these too.

Jenny Doan has a great video on plain ones here.  And I found some directions here as well. I made some 20 years ago, they are easy and have been around a long time!

These pillows were made by my friend Rhiannon and myself. I sewed up the two smaller bowtie block pillows. Rhiannon made the large one with scraps from my Garden Gate pattern.

Rhiannon also made the shirt below.  Our friend Stephanie made the dress. Sue O’Very made the bag, but more on that later.

That’s it for my Tie One On sharing today. Trust me there will be more in the coming week. I am going to try to post everyday this week. And just by commenting on each post, you could win a little mini prize of Tie One On from me. I will draw from each day’s comments and send out a fat quarter or eighth or something along those lines.

As for the rest of the Tie One On Blog Hop…..

Make sure you stop by each of the stops on the Blog Hop tour! Remember each of them will be choosing one winner of a fantastic bundle of Tie One On Fat Quarters!

9/22 – Teri Lucas  — That’s TODAY!
9/23 – Robin Long
9/24 – Sue O’Very

I am excited to see what they all come up with (okay, I have seen peeks, but not on all of them!)

And as always,

Keep Sewing, Keep Happy,

    I think I’d like to wear your fabric more than quilt with it…. but you know one thing leads to another!

    What wonderful colors and prints in your batik collection. Congratulations to your Scott as you are such a wonderfully fun person. I have made the owl pincushions before but never thought to add fuzzy stuff to them. Gotta try this.
