All That Glitters & Shimmering Constellations & Giveaway Winner!

Happy Monday, Dear Friends!  I hope you are doing well.  It seems like months ago I was asked to design with Benartex’s Gold Standard/Simply Sterling collection!


And the results were:

#1.  Shimmering Constellation

Shimmering Constellation made it to the final round of 2016’s Benartex Fan Favorite design!!!  As you know, my designs won the 2014 and 2015 fan favorites, shown in the following:

SO it is fun to see another of my designs made it to the final round this year. I am hoping you would go vote your Benartex’s FAN FAVORITE design for this year.  I would be so honored to have you vote for my Shimmering Constellation.  But I do want you to vote your consicence. :o)  Click HERE to go vote!  Voting closes at 5pm EST on April 4, 2016.


I actually had an editorial feature using the Gold Standard/Simply Sterling fabrics in the December 2015 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.  This is a bed-size quilt, and it is another “Sawtooth Star” design!


All that glitters

Design 2b_85 x 85

Last year the quilt was displayed at American Patchwork & Quilting’s booth during Fall Market last year.


There was this really cool app at the booth where designers could customize the cover of a particular magazine issue in which their quilt is featured.  Since I was the “loser designer” who didn’t get her quilt on the cover, it was really fun to “live” the moment (a very fleeting moment, I might add) as if I was the cover girl!  HAHAHA.  So, this is what the cover of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine issue should look if I had had the power to dictate… I had way too much fun with this app!



And before I forget, the winner of my Learn to Machine Quilt Pieced Blocks DVD giveaway is mumbird3.  An email has been sent to you – please email me your shipping address, and I will get the DVD sent out to you!   Meanwhile, I will have another giveaway for the online version of the class in the very near future.  Stay tuned. :)  Thank you all for playing along!  Meanwhile, you may click here to check out the class if you haven’t already. :o)


Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great week ahead.  We will have quite a bit to cover this week at Ivory Spring. Check back often for happenings!  Hugs to you all.

  3. I voted! I did not realize that the 2014 winner was your quilt. I made a quilt using your pattern! It is currently in my “To Be Quilted” pile. I enjoyed making it.
