Every time I see the cover of this book I oooh and I ahhhh!
This is Sujata Shah's new book, Cultural Fusion Quilts, and we featured our Giveaway HERE.
I LOVE the colors..all of them! Whoohoooo!
What is that saying?
Art Ddoesn'tHave to Match the Couch?!
I so feel that way about quilts. I mean, decorating with quilts that fit your “color theme” of your house is one thing….but exploring color and letting color play a bit out of the box is another! I’ve done both. Sometimes I feel like playing with a certain set, and sometimes I just want to play and see where it leads me. I LOVE the colors in the cover quilt of this fabulous book by Sujata Shah!
And obviously 613 of you liked it and wanted it enough to leave a copy on the Give-Away post and I’m about to pick one of you as the winner….
Are you ready?
Carol Candlish, you are the winner!
Carol, I left you a message through google+ Please check for it and get back to me with your snail mail address so I can get it off to Sujata and she will get the book out to you ASAP! Congrats!
As for what’s been going on here today:
Sewing more hour glass units!
I can’t show you the quilt, but the block is being featured in NEXT Nov/Dec issue of Quiltmaker..and I want the full quilt done to show with the block….so I’m sewing Christmas a year ahead of the Christmas it will be featured in.
AND…I’ve discovered the series Broadchurch on Netfflix….what a who dunnit! I’m only on season 1….and it gets more and more intriguing with every episode. Makes chain piecing a gazillion units not quite a chore.
Happy Happy, Merry Merry!
I’ve been ruthless in pulling in the old vintage 1980s and 1990s prints from Christmas Past into these blocks as well as incorporating some newer holiday fabrics, and every day red, green, neutrals. FUN FUN FUN FUN!!!
Mona even came to sew this afternoon!
Can you see what she is doing? She’s got the seam ripper in her hand. Unsewing is just part of the journey, isn’t it?
Beanie and Sadie don’t think quilting is very exciting at all!
More vintage fabric fun…look what I uncovered:
Old old old Jinny Beyer!
This stuff should be worth something by now as old as it is, shouldn’t it? HA!
While we were sewing, the guys were working on fixing a winch on one of the vehicles. Time has gotten kind of late, it’s now dark….we haven’t packed up to go home yet, so the suggestion was made that we just stay up here tonight and drive home in the morning.
Another night at Quilt Villa?
I’m game for that!
Tomorrow morning bright and early…..Mystery Monday Link-Up!
Luckily I can write that from here and have it ready to post while we are on our drive home.
Have a lovely Sunday evening, everyone!
