I also started work on this month’s Island Batik challenge, which is paper piecing. Here’s my fabric pull.
Well, that was my week!
Before we find out what you did this week, let’s take a look at who made this week’s feature.
Let's see who made this week's feature
Last week was a special Halloween link up! I was over whelmed by the number of wonderfully spooky quilts that were linked up! Here are a few of my favorites.
First, Alice linked up tons of Halloween quilts. It’s no surprise that Halloween is her favorite holiday! Here are two of my favorites from Alice—a Baltimore Album Halloween quilt and a paper pieced skeleton quilt. There are so many more quilts from Alice you must see! Click here to revisit last week’s link up so you can view Alice’s great collection of Halloween quilts!
Since Alice does not have a blog, if you enjoyed her quilts, please leave a comment here for her.
Next up is Chris @ Chris Knits Sews, who finished this awesome Pumpkin Patch quilt just in time to link it up.
Lisa also linked up a quilt she made for her sister. The quilt was so beautiful I just couldn’t think of not featuring it even though it isn’t Halloween. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Next, Karrin @ Karrin’s Crazy World linked up two beautiful pumpkin quilts from the book, Collection Two. I’m not sure what it is about pumpkin quilts but I really love them! I think a pumpkin quilt is in my future!
Anita @ Domestic Felicity shared this pumpkin pot holder she made from scraps. What a great way to celebrate the season!
Karen @ Tuna Quilts, Travels, and Eats linked up her owl block from the Fall into a Quilt Along. What does an owl have to do with Halloween? Visit last week’s Wednesday Wait Loss and read her comment to learn how. It’ll make you smile for sure!
Last but not least was someone who was only identified as Works4Me on Flickr. If this was you, please let me know who you are! Works4Me linked up the cutest Halloween quilt ever, called Wanda’s Wicked Wearables. Works4Me is new to our group so let’s give her a great big Wednesday Wait Loss welcome! If you can, please visit her on Flickr to leave a comment. If you can’t visit Flickr, leave a comment here for her.
Congratulations ladies! Here's an I Was Featured badge for your blogs or to simply print out and wear with pride! Thank you so much for supporting my blog!
So who won the giveaway?
Last week on Wednesday Wait Loss, if you linked up a Halloween quilt then you got two chances to win. If you linked up any other quilt, you got one chance. Up for grabs was an Island Batik Stash Buster roll—-a roll of several 2-1/2” x WOF strips.
As usual, I assigned numbers to each entry and then let Random.org select the winner.
Congratulations Karrin! Send me an email with your postal address and I’ll get your prize in the mail to you.
Our next special link up is next month
Our next special Wednesday Wait Loss will be on November 21st and we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving and harvest quilts. Thanksgiving is celebrated here in the states, and to us it is a celebration of food and family, featuring turkeys, corn, bread stuffing, cranberries, pumpkins and other foods harvested in the fall. We also celebrate the American Indian at Thanksgiving, without who’s help the first pioneers would never have made it through those difficult first winters in a new land. Most cultures celebrate harvest time with some kind of festival, and I’d love to hear stories about that as well!
As usual, if you link up a quilt that somehow reminds you of Thanksgiving or harvest time, it’ll count as two chances in my giveaway. Other quilts linked up will count as one chance.
Time to link up!
Now it’s your turn to link up your works in progress and recently completed quilts! Here are some quick reminders about the linky party:
This linky is all about encouragement, so please visit a few of the links and leave a comment.
