New things I’ve tried:
1. Basting spray!
Why didn’t I try this sooner? I love to piece quilts, but I never get around to basting and quilting. Switching from pin basting to spray basting may make all the difference! I used an entire can this weekend, so I’ve got plenty of quilts ready to work on.
2. I made a blog button!
Actually, I made two. I am going to start a year long of giveaways on my blog, starting with a $25 gift certificate to Fabric.com. Come back to my blog on August 1st for all the details, and if you’re interested, you can grab my blog button from my sidebar.
In the meantime, I have this book to give away. As part of my giveaways, I am going to be paring down all the stuff I’ve accumulated in my three short years of quilting. The first is this:
I love this book! It is filled with beautiful photographs and fabrics. But as part of my paring down, I have decided that I am not going to be attempting to make “fiddly things” anymore. So, potholders are out. I like quilts and that’s what I’m going to focus my time on.
To enter, you must be a follower and tell me what you like to sew best. Do you like quilts, too, or maybe zipper pouches, pillows, tablerunners, or bags? The drawing will close on August 1st and I’ll randomly pick a winner. Open to US residents only.
Don’t forget to check back here on August 1st for the first of many giveaways!!!
I’m linking up to TNT Thursdays at Happy Quilting.
