This picture shows about 80% of the quilts that were returned to me from various editors within the last 8 weeks or so. All of them have been or will be posted on Instagram.

Before we get started, I am happy to announce Joyce O. as the winner of the de-stash opportunity of the applique topper last week.
I want to thank you all for helping me de-stash! Don’t worry if you didn’t win the last round – I am foreseeing this de-stashing endeavor of mine to be an ongoing thing.
This week’s destash opportunity is that large box I told you I had packed, but didn’t have the photo ready for last week’s post. I have yardages + small pieces (most are at least 1/4y) + 1 large piece of Thimbleberries fabric (not shown) + 3 scrap bags (one of them has a few large fabric pieces) + a back issue of Quilting Quickly that has 3 of my quilt projects in it.
Please leave a comment if you are interested in entering this destash opportunity. US address ONLY please! I will pick a winner next Tuesday. Winner agrees to send me a check for $47. I won’t probably have fabrics with serious yardages for a while, UNLESS I find another box in the guest room closet. I do think I have shared that box with you all that I found a while back. But one never knows what lurks in the back of the guest room closet! :-)
Here are my two cents for this week:
Always check the orientation of your blocks after you sew up the quilt center, BEFORE sewing on the border strips (if you quilt has border strips). If a block is oriented incorrectly, it’s easier to fix before the border strips are sewn on.
I had to correct the block orientations on a few of the blocks for this quilt, but the end result was worth it. Pattern info is HERE if you are interested in making this quilt. Fabrics I used are Country Rose by Moda. Info HERE.
That’s it for now. It’s now turn to share your 2-cents!
