Wednesday Wait Loss 115

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss. Please share what you’ve been working on!

First let me tell you what I've been up to

Last week I released a new pattern! Emerald Lodge was designed using the Elk Lodge fabric collection from Island Batik. Emerald Lodge is on sale in my store until Saturday at midnight EST, so hurry there to get your copy!

On Monday, I finished a bee block! Yeah me! Read all about my online bee and learn where you can get the pattern here.

Also on Monday I went into work to find the sample quilt I’d made from the Island Batik Flea Market collection—a quilt I call Belfast Market—on display! I made Belfast Market for last year’s Fall Market, and since then it’s been on tour, traveling from quilt store to quilt store as part of a trunk show for the Flea Market fabric collection.

It was so cool to see it at Always in Stitches, and to see the other quilts traveling with the trunk show. Click here to read more about Belfast Market. Click here to purchase the pattern.

Well, that was my week!

Now let's see who made this week's feature

Here are my favorite posts from last week.

First up is Tami @ Thrift Shop Commando, who’s blog name should tell you how much she loves to make the most of things most people discard. Tami posted two seminole pieced borders she acquired recently in an online orphan block adoption. Isn’t that a cool idea? Got blocks you’ll never put together in a quilt? Why not pass them onto to someone who will?

Next is Frederique @ Quilting Patchwork Applique who shared a tutorial on pressing properly. Her post is worth a read if you aren’t sure how to press your quilt blocks properly.

Next, Nancy @ Grace and Peace Quilting linked up a fascinating post on how to buy fabric at IKEA. I mean who knew? <wink>

Next is Gail @ Quilting Gail who linked up this awesome retreat bag! Visit her blog to learn where to get the pattern.

Finally, Lisa Marie linked up the cutest cork purse! No, it’s not cork fabric but fabric printed with corks. <grin> I really love how this looks!

Congratulations ladies! Here's an I Was Featured badge for your blogs or to simply print out and wear with pride! Thank you for supporting my blog!

Easter is this weekend, and that has me longing for Spring flowers, bunnies, candy and of course spring quilts! So I thought I’d have a giveaway. Up for grabs is this spring-inspired bag of scraps.

So linking up your spring quilts (pastel, spring flowers, bunnies, little lambs, candy, baskets, and so on). If you’re not sure if your quilt is a “spring quilt,” leave a comment that explains your reasoning. You’ll get two chances to win for every spring quilt you link up, and one chance for every regular quilt.

This giveaway is open to US residents only.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
