And the winner is…

Congratulations go out to Sherry for winning the Snowman pattern from

last week’s draw.  It is in the mail and on its way, as we speak.  Have fun

making it Sherry and send me a photo when you are done.

Winterfest was on this weekend and here are several photos for you.

Pretty cool to be able to make something like this out of ice.

I think that I will stick to cotton myself.

I am not quite sure who this guy is but it is neat to see him.

And I find inspiration in the wierdest places.

The circles are so cool on this octopus tentacles.  I love pebbles on a

quilt and this reminded me of it.

Now, on to more important matters.

This piece was made for an upcoming challenge.  I can’t say what

yet but the quilting design and inspiration came from Margaret Solomon

Gunn.  She is one very  talented longarmer.

The piecing design was created by me but the technique came from

Jacquie Gering. “Flipping and stitching” is the technique.  Basically,

you cut out different sizes of fabric, stitch them, flip, press and

continue on again. It was good for me to try but I found it a very

stretching experience.

Okay, I am sure that you have had enough of this piece but I really

like the quilting on it.

This baby is waiting patiently for me to take some time

to quilt up.  It will have to wait a little longer though. It is

a design by Jenny Pedigo from Sew Kind of Wonderful.

Don’t forget to check out Freshly Pieced.

See you next week.
