I've also been busy with a quilt challenge. Jodi at Simply This, That and the Other strongly encouraged me to join in. It looked like a lot of fun so against my better judgment I did. May I just say it has been fun. It is sponsored by Old Red Barn Co. It's been going for three weeks now but if you want to join in you can still catch up.
You need to choose twelve half yard cuts of fabric. Of course, I chose thirteen. Then you cut them into 2.5" strips.
Next, sew them together using 1/4" seams and cut them into 12.5" squares. On the Old Barn site it says 11.5" squares but I think it should be 12.5". If not, I can still fix them.
I put these up on my design wall for a picture. Obviously, my quilt will be very bright. I love sewing quick quilts like this one. After next week I will be ablt to longarm more of my quilts and do a lot more sewing.
I've been wanting to do a give away. I wasn't ready to do one before Christmas so I gave Jodi one of my table runners and asked her to use it in a giveaway. I figured I be ready when I had 1,000 visitors to my site. That number came and went...maybe, 2,000? Oops, that came and went, too. I love the blogging community. I think I'm just about ready now so you might want to keep checking back...just in case. Happy Summer Vacation!!!!!!!
