This and that and a giveaway...

Pin It
Thank you for all the love and support on my Roundhouse Quilt!
I got my copy of the magazine in the mail last week, and it was a really good feeling.  I think my favorite was how excited my husband was to get the magazine, or showing the picture to Steiger and asking him if he recognized anything (because you can bet that he's running around in the background of all my quilty photo shoots).  He sheepishly said, "That's Mommy's quilt." Making an all Anna Maria Horner spectrum quilt was on my quilty "bucket list," so it was extra exciting to be able to publish it.  And I really love the pattern too.

My Roundhouse!

I have a few extra copies of the magazine to sell with the templates that are up in my little shop.

The cover quilt, made by Amy Friend, is amazing! I just love her creativity here!

Aug/Sept American Quilter

I want to give away a copy of the magazine and a template.  If you'd like to enter - leave a comment here!  Pin the Roundhouse (or share on facebook or be a follower) for an extra entry.

Roundhouse

Can you believe I hadn't bought any fabric since April?  (I checked and double-checked my statements to confirm that!)  But then placed a few orders to celebrate.  And then I think I might have got a case of "one yard is too many, and twenty aren't enough."

Here is a FQ bundle of Anna Maria's re-released Hand Drawn Garden (you can get it here from Beth at Stash Modern Fabrics, or from Amanda at Westwood Acres).  The social climber is one of my favorite prints; I'm going to need to get yardage to make something with that (or back a quilt or something).  And I actually used a lot of my AMH stash to make my Roundhouse quilt.  It *clearly* needed a bit of replenishing.

Hand Drawn Garden

I also got this great bundle from Beth at Stash Modern Fabrics today.  Mostly Briar Rose and a Squared Elements, with a couple others thrown in.  I LOVE this stack, and plan to use some of it this weekend.

Briar Rose & Squared Elements

New fabric!

So pretty!  This is why I quilt! I can't help myself!

I have been loving my little pattern editing gig with American Quilter, but one down side is that it takes most of my sewing time.  But I'm all caught up on assignments, and this weekend I plan to do some sewing.  I took this pile of low volume background pieces outside this week to cut while the kiddos were playing (I love doing that - and p.s. most of these came from Amanda at Westwood Acres).

Cutting

Hopefully I'll have something to show you soon with these!  That's the plan at least!  (Along with a couple custom quilts, a couple patterns to write... you know the drill!) ♥

Anyway - if you'd like to enter to win a copy of the August/September American Quilter magazine, with an acrylic Roundhouse template, don't forget to leave a comment!  (Or you can just buy one).

And have a great weekend!

♥ Tracey

Well of course you had to treat yourself after that, it's great being published. And of course you'd used up fabric making the quilt, so that had to be replaced. Really, 4 months without new fabric is just wrong. Yup, can totally see why you went shopping ;o)

Rachel said...

Hope you get lots of sewing time this weekend, can't wait to see what you make with these pretty stacks! Love your roundhouse quilt! :) if I won the magazine I think I'd need to replenish my AMH stash!!
