Quilty Through The House!

There's a whole lotta quilty going on during this last Quiltville Inn retreat of the 2023 season!

Every time I come in here there is something new being worked on up on the design walls.

I am loving how Tracy's Maymont is coming together - I'm sure she'll have it together as a top by the time departure arrives tomorrow.

We all need a bit of Maymont in our lives - no triangles, just super-duper scrappy fun!

 Tulip Time lets us know that Spring will be around the corner soon - once we make it through the onslaught of the holiday season ahead.  

And those beautiful blue triangles are becalming this:

Rivanna is well under way - just look at all of those sparkling blues!

We were all amazed at how 3D this maze quilt looks!

Fantastic!  Now on to borders!

Morning Glories blocks, also in gorgeous purples!

Melody finished her 365 quilt top!

It is amazing in every way!

It's feeling just a bit Christmassy in here!

Another Silk Path underway in luscious warm browns. Perfect for retreat sewing!

I know there was a lot of Indigo Way  progress happening all over the web as well.  It is so much fun seeing everyone's progress and color choices!

Answers to emails and further explanations:

For those who don't want to print everything, save ink and paper - feel free to copy/paste just the text you want from the mystery post into a word document and print that. There is no "just the instructions with no pictures" version of the PDF.  Thanks for understanding that I present this mystery free.  You don't have to print at all - just keep it on your computer screen and jot down some notes.

You can choose which pages to print, and how many of each page from within the print dialog when printing.

For those looking for the printable newsprint: The link to the 500 sheet ream of 8 1/2 X 11'' newsprint for paper piecing is HERE. *ad

And now! It's time to draw for our winners in the Sew Q Laser, Iron EZ Gift-Away!
We had 3, 569 entries - our first two winners will each receive a  Sew Q Laser

And the winners are: 

Entry 300 - Cathy Smith!

Entry 2338 - Dena Dodd!

More information can be found on the Sew Q Laser website.  It's seriously the best investment I've made for my machine piecing all year.

And the IronEZ Ironing board bottle holder sets are going to:

Entry 475 - Dawn Mills

Entry 2206 - Mary Newcomb

Entry 3362 - Judy Wentz

Congrats to our winners!

The Iron EZ adjustable clip can fit a multitude of thicknesses – this will even clamp to a table top, tray or big board.

It fits and corrals a multitude of favorite bottle sizes – and the free bottle that comes with it has even a finer mist than the traditional trigger spray on Best Press. 

I am just this sold on the product, and the kind folks at IronEZ are offering a 15% discount to my readers using code BH15OFF

It's the last full day for the December Quiltvillians - the quilting storm continues!

The house will be empty and a bit lonely after everyone leaves tomorrow morning, but we start up again in February.  It's time for a well deserved winter break!

    I love the 3D maze quilt. Can someone tell me the name of it and where to find the pattern? Thanks Bonnie. Love your daily blog!

    1. From a friend's blog: "Labyrinth Walk quilt . . . I saw the pattern in Quilt Magazine (circa 2008)" (With String Attached https://withstringsattached.blogspot.com/search/label/Labyrinth%20Walk)

      Thank you for the information on the Labyrinth Walk Quilt. I ordered the pattern from EBay. Can't wait to get started!

  7. Beautiful quilts all! I, too would like information on the maze quilt. My boys would love it.
