Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss. Please share what you’ve been working on!
First let me tell you what I've been up to
On Saturday I reviewed my quilty goals for the month. June was good to me and I got a lot of projects done. Click here to see what I made in June.
On Monday I set my goals for July. It’s a hefty list so I’m hoping I do as good as I did in June on them. Click here to see what I’m making this month and to leave me a little encouragement.
Well that was my week.
Now let's see who made this week's feature
Last week I held a giveaway, awarding two points to anyone who linked up a red, white, or blue quilt and one point to any link up. More on that in a moment, but for now let’s feature all those wonderful red/white/blue quilts!
First up is Alice, who linked up four quilts, including her gorgeous triangle flag quilt and her shimmering Lady of the Great Lakes anniversary quilt. Way to go Alice!
Red, white and blue fabrics are super popular right now at the shop, so I wasn’t surprised by all the entries. Thanks gals for supporting me!
Next up is Denise @ For the Love of Geese, who linked up these two beauties. They are plum gorgeous. Click the images to visit each post.
Next is Vicki @ Vicki’s Crafts and Quilting, who linked up several projects she’s made to sell in her shop, including this cute round placemat. As you can see, you didn’t need to link up a patriotic quilt to qualify, just one that was mostly red/white/and or blue.
Yvonne @ Sew Yummy linked up two quilts, one of which was this fun Toronto Maple Leafs quilt.
Chris @ Chris Knits Sews linked up this awesome red/white/blue pillow!
Finally, Vasudha @ Storied Quilts didn’t link up a red/white/blue quilt but I wanted to feature it anyway because it’s so awesome. Vasudha revisited an old quilt and requilted it using her improved quilting skills. Skillfully done I say!
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!
I’m not sure how to link up
Need help? Click the Wednesday Wait Loss tab above to get step by step instructions on what to do. You can link up a blog post, a photo from Flickr, Instagram, or Facebook, or a photo direct from your cell phone provided it is low resolution.
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:
By linking up, you give me permission to grab a photo or two to share here on Wednesday Wait Loss.
This linky is all about encouragement, so please visit a few of the links and leave a comment.
If you’re uploading a photo from your phone/computer, leave a comment below that explains your project. And for the rest of us, please reply to a few of these comments leaving words of encouragement for a quick finish.
Please link back to my post somewhere in your blog post or use @inquiringquilter and #wedwaitloss to tag me in your Instagram/Flickr post.
If you link a photo from Facebook, please mention @InquiringQuilter and my Wednesday Wait Loss.
I appreciate you!
As you know, I use InLinkz to run my weekly Wednesday Wait Loss linky party. To link up, you’ll need to sign in using Facebook or Google+ or create a username/password for InLinkz.
I’d really hate to lose you over this change because we have such a great weekly group! If needed, you can send me your images via email and I’ll add them manually.
If you would like to link up a photo from your phone or computer, you need to enter an URL or InLinkz will not let you proceed. Use this URL
So Who Won the Giveaway?
No, I didn’t forget! <grin>
As usual, I assigned a letter to each entry and let Random.org choose a random winner.
Congratulations Alice! I’ll put your package of red/white/blue fabrics in the mail to you. With your four entries, you’ll surely put them to good use!
Our Next Giveaway!
So you can prepare, I think I’ll do our next giveaway in September. Since that’s the month most kids return to school, let’s focus on learning. What I’ll be looking for is a quilted project that features some kind of technique that’s new to you, much like my Island Batik June challenge was to me. So for two chances you’ll need to link up your project and leave something in the comments or on your blog post that explains what the technique was and what you learned from trying it.
So dig through your quilts and prepare your stories. Or if you’re so inclined, select something new and try it! We’d love to share in your quilting journey.
