Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss!
Great news! My computer is mostly up and running. Just little things to fix right now, like why my graphics editor will suddenly quit and lose my work.And why one monitor will suddenly shut off while I'm using it, moving everything to the other screen. Believe me, these things are little compared to what my computer was doing. Ugh.
Technology. I have a love-hate thing with it.
So you might remember that last week I showed you this--my mess of a block.
Well, I recut the pieces (the right size this time) and finally got the block done! I want to wait to show you the final block though until I can write up a blog post explaining my choices for this block.
What I can show you now is my new pattern!
This pattern uses a panel and fabrics from the Good Friends collection by Quilting Treasures. Isn't it adorable? I love Peanuts and had a blast designing a quilt pattern for this collection. The pattern is now available in my shop, and the fabric is in quilt stores now.
As it so happens, I'm currently having a 20% off sale on all patterns in my shop. I had the sale to celebrate the release of my block in the I Wish You a Merry Quilt Along. The sale lasts until the end of this month. Use the code MerryQAL20 at checkout to get the discount.
On the quilt along front, we released Block 5 (Snowman) yesterday. Isn't he cute? Click here to view my version and to learn where to download the pattern. There's a giveaway you can enter just for making the block, so don't miss it!
Speaking of giveaways, there are lots of them in the Back to School Blog Hop by Island Batik Ambassadors!
Here's the blog hop schedule. Every day, there is a new Island Batik collection being featured. Each Island Batik Ambassador is having a giveaway, and so is Island Batik! Visit each Ambassador's blog to view wonderful projects featuring the fabric collection of the day, and then enter their giveaway! My day is next week so don't forget to come back!
Now that you know what I've been doing, let's see what you're up to! First though, it's time for our weekly feature!
This week I want to feature Mary, a faithful contributor to Wednesday Wait Loss. Last week Mary linked up her crazy quilt and declared that it might not be finished just yet because she had some stones that would look perfect on it. If you knew Mary, you would know that she's not only a talented quilt artist, she's also quite capable of sewing through stone. <grin> Mary also linked up a new quilt that looks like a starburst.
Congratulations Mary! Here is an “I Was Featured” button you can print out.
It's almost time to link up! But first, let me announce the winner of the $25 gift certificate from Always in Stitches. Remember, you can use this gift certificate online or in person.
I assigned a number to each entry, then let Random.org do its thing and select the winner. And the winner is....
Patti! Congratulations! Your digital gift certificate is on its way.
