Island Batik & Creative New Quilts Blog Hop Day 6


Happy Monday, Dear Friends!  I hope you had a good weekend.  We remembered Palm Sunday in our family, and look forward to our Easter week.

Meanwhile, our blog hop is still growing strong at Day 6!

Monday, March 14 – Island Batik Intro – be sure to stop by for the giveaway of a free fabric bundle! You will also see what outfit I wore to church yesterday when you visit Island Batik’s blog today.  Totally unplanned… I chuckled when I saw the picture!

Tuesday, March 15 – The Fit Quilter – Adele is using the Desert Rose collection to make her version of Crossings! You have got to pop on over to see her quilt – simply gorgeous! Adele is a quilt designer herself — check out her work, and the patterns she has for sale!

Wednesday, March 16 – Pamela Quilts — Pamela gives a batik-y twist to my Flight of Colors pillows. Pam is also a Craftsy Designer, as well as Etsy Shop owner.  Do take a moment to check out her offerings!!!  And there’s a giveaway of a copy of my book!

Thursday, March 17 – MooseStash Quilting — Today featured hop project is one that is near and dear to my heart!!!  Joan made my quilt with the BUZZ – my coffee cup quilt! You simply have to head over to her blog to see her quilt.  I am tempted to reveal the colors of Joan’s quilt here, but I shall refrain!  And of course, as for the entire blog hop, a free copy of my book is given away by all the hop contributors.

Friday, March 18 –  Bejeweled Quilts — Barb is a talented designer, and I am thrilled to see her version of my Birds of a Feather placemats! Barb is also a Craftsy designer.  I hope you will check out her many best-selling patterns!

TODAY!!!  Monday, March 21 –  One Quilting Circle — Last Friday you saw the placemats, today Linda is sharing the Birds of a Feather runner with Island Batik’s Sweet Georgia Peach fabric lines.  The fabrics gave the runner a mosaic look!  You have to check it out.

Tuesday, March 22 –  BeaQuilter
Wednesday, March 23 – Freemotion by the River and KISSed Quilts 
Thursday, March 24 – Mary Mack Made Mine
Friday, March 25 – Lemon Tree Snippets

The original runner looks like this in the book:bird runner

And I also showed an autumn colorway in the book:





I think it can be said about today’s hop project is that fabrics really make the runner! :)

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you will check out Linda’s blog — don’t forget to leave a comment on her blog for your chance to win a copy of my book!

I shall check in with you later — for now, I have a few sets of pattern instructions to rush out — and I’d better get going!  Love to you all!
