Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss! Please share your quilty works in progress and recent finished quilts with us!
First, let me tell you what I've been up to.
Let's see. Last week I finished the two Funky Friends I was making for Island Batik's Fall Market booth. Both of the Funky Friends feature fabrics that will be released at Market so I can't show what I actually made. I can show you what they look like however, by using the photos from the patterns.
First I made Memory Bear. The pattern shows you how to create the bear using baby clothes if you want, which I think is a wonderful idea! I however made mine with Island Batiks of course.
Memory Bear is very scrappy and I had a lot of fun deciding which batik went where. He turned out so cute, I can't wait to show you as soon as Market opens.
The second Funky Friend I made was Punju Peacock. He went together really quick. If you look closely, you'll see that his head is adorned with ribbons. I didn't have any ribbons that matched the batiks I was to use, but I did have some fun trims so I used them. He turned out adorable and a bit quirky. Can't wait until you can see him!
Last week I also finished making the April block for my Bee Inspired beemate, Emily. Just in time for the 4th of July! Emily's block is foundation paper pieced and its the Starry Night block by Cath @ Wombat Quilts.
I also finished writing a pattern for Dear Stella, featuring their new fabric collection, Flight Pattern. The pattern will soon be available for free download.
That's what I've been up to this week.! Let's see who made this week's feature.
Last week's link up as you know was all about flowers and floral quilts. So for this week's feature, I want to showcase Karrin @ Karrin's Crazy World, who linked up a post with four floral quilts! Visit her blog to learn more about these lovely quilts.
Did you miss the other floral quilts that were linked up? Click here to view last week's post, and the linkup at the bottom of it.
Congratulations Karrin! Thank you so much for sharing your quilts with us. Here's an I Was Featured badge for your blog.
Now let's see who one the Island Batik Stash Builder Roll. I assigned one number to each link up--two to every linkup with a floral quilt. Then I let Random.org choose the winner.
Wow! This must be Karrin's lucky day because she's the winner! Karrin, please email me your postal address and I'll send the Island Batik Stash Builder Roll your way!
Our next special link up will be July 18th. Since the United States celebrates it's independence on July 4th, I'd like to celebrate the month with red, white, and blue quilts. I'll be having another giveaway, so get your quilts ready for the link up! To qualify, quilts do not need to be patriotic or have anything to do with the Fourth of July, but they do need to contain at least some red, some white, and some blue (all three colors).
Time to link up! Remember, if you need help linking up, click here for detailed step by steps.
