It's day 4- are you still with me? The giveaway today is an assortment of buttons, charms, beads and note cards:
Today I am sharing a couple more projects from my book. The quilt featured on the cover is called the House on a Hill Quilt, and it's my favorite project:
The embroidered border at the bottom says:
A house is built of walls and beams,
A home is built with love and dreams.
Another favorite project from my book is the Sweet Stuff apron. Cupcakes are the latest greatest thing- so why not wear them? It has my favorite colors, red and pink-
Today is Michele's turn for the blog hop. I met Michele (aka Mishka) at a Quilt Market a couple of years ago (you see why we all love going to Market- you meet so many cool people!)
Michele is the brain and creative force behind Quilting Gallery- which is pretty much a Quilting Universe! Visit Michele's blog for the weekly contest- submit an entry for that week's theme, or vote for your favorite. This week's theme is Log Cabins- if you'd like to enter, you have until midnight tonight to get your photos in, then voting starts tomorrow. The winner receives a prize from that week's sponsor, such as gift certificates to online shops, and fabric, patterns, and books. Back in April, I sponsored the Applique Contest and gave fabric and patterns as a prize. There were so many beautiful entries... On her blog, Michele also talks about the quilts she is working on and other stuff going on in the Quilting Universe.
At Quilting Gallery, you can find a huge listing of quilt bloggers, quilt guilds, shops, free projects and tutorials, forums and more- I told you it was a whole Quilting Universe!! You can easily lose yourself on Michele's site for hours at a time.
