Tie One On Blog Hop – Day 2

Welcome back to the Tie One On Blog Hop Day 2!

Today is Robin Long’s day.  I should say Robin “Amazing” Long’s day.  Because Robin does AMAZING Things with her Mariner’s Compass rulers! I had the great pleasure of teaching and traveling a bit with Robin and her husband, Dave, on my trip to Valdez earlier this month. Nicest couple on the planet, and fun to just be with as well. Robin has a MOUNTAIN of ideas for Mariner’s Compass blocks, and all I heard from her students is how great she was at running her classes, and how successful they felt with her concepts.

She came up with the incredible Flower Cocktail for Spring Quilt Market this year featuring Tie One On.  And in her blog post today,  you get to see that quilt, which is incredible enough, but then she also went all Southwestern with a Tie One On Dreamcatcher Quilt! AND her quilter got into the act as well – be sure to see what Wanda Rains of Rainy Day Quilts came up with. LOTS of Curves!!  Seriously Robin went all out on her blog post today, you have to go over there to visit!!

Now Robin generously gave me one of her tools to play with. I just opened the book and ruler yesterday, so I haven’t got anything sewed up yet, but I think I can do this. Particularly with this Video that Robin has on YouTube! Keep an eye on my Instagram Feed to see how I do!  🙂

Now, it’s my turn….

For some other Blue Nickel Visual Contributions (BNVC) to the Blog Hop, here’s what I’m showing today!

These are more bags designed by Sara Lawson and worked up by my friend Rhiannon.

I also had a ton of help making stuff for Spring Quilt Market from Kristy. She even did some decoupaging with the scraps from her projects!

Kristy whipped up my United Colors Quilt in colors I laid out for her in no time flat! This is such an easy pattern!

Kristy also made a bunch of bags as well. I think there were a few designers here, but I am not sure who designed what. I do know that the black and white and aqua one is this bag, but that’s all that I know.

Bag close up here. The insides are hard to capture on camera, so no photos, but the are very well done as well in my humble opinion.

So that’s it for today’s visit here. Be sure to check out Robin’s post and all her great ideas. She seriously wrote up a great post!

Reminders about the Hop…

Make sure you stop by each of the stops on the Blog Hop tour as it progresses!

Remember each of them will be choosing one winner of a fantastic bundle of Tie One On Fat Quarters! And one commentor from each of my blog posts ABOUT these mighty fine peeps will win some little treat as well.

    I love using batiks in paper piecing projects. Robin’s use of the mariner’s compass for her Dreamcatcher has given me lots of ideas. Thanks for a great new collection.

    Robin’s Dream Catcher is by far my most favorite project using your fabric designs yet! And those decoupage art pieces are most adorable!

    I have never thought about making a mariners compass quilt but Robin did such a great job making the dreamcatcher. The fabrics are fantastic.
