Tie One On Blog Hop – Day 5

We are now at the halfway point – Tie One On Blog Hop Day 5. I hope you have enjoyed meeting the “Hoppers” and seeing what fun stuff they have been up to. Soon You will be able to play with Tie One On too! I cannot wait to see what you make with it; I know it will be amazing!!

Today’s Hopper(s) are Linda and Carl Sullivan, better known as the dynamic duo behind Colourwerx!   They have come up with this amazing quilt pattern called Whirligig (coming out in a few weeks- hmm…same time as the fabric!) Linda decided to work it up in Tie One On with the Ventura colorway and the black and white piece from the Manhattan colorway. Isn’t it grand!? I really like how these colors give a very hip sort of Modern Christmas feel without being confined to just one time of year.  I actually didn’t plan that when I was working on the colors of this line. It just sort of happened. That is pretty much how I plan my quilts, so I guess it makes sense!

Go check out their blog post for more details about Whirligig and be sure to comment there for a chance to win the Banyan Prize as well as the pattern prize that they are giving away as well.

Flashback to Spring Quilt Market (and Greener grass)….

Carl and Linda made these great Mini Mod Dog pillows too. Very well done and ultra swanky.

Flanking the Mini Mod Dogs are two pillow covers created by my friend Melissa Thompson-Maher using my Soup of  The Day Quilt block. She did an amazing job on them. I love how she paired the purple with the pink and grey. Not sure that I would have done that , but I love the look she created!


Also from Spring Quilt Market, we had more bags made by good friends.

This Bucket Bag is by my friend Natalie Barnes over at Beyond the Reef Patterns.

The bag below was made by my co-worker Sally (I told you she made a lot!!)

First photo is a dark dramatic shot showing my first ever attempt at crochet (well, after my failed attempt at 8 years old).

And a fully lit shot showing the fabric and bag in a more direct light (perched on top of some Tie One On pillows). This bag is great because it has a really flat bottom!

    Linda’s quilt looks beautiful. Her pattern and the fabrics she used makes it look like it is swirling. She did a wonderful job.
    I love the bags, especially the last one.
