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 Sunday I released a new pattern! Broken Road is designed to use the upcoming Island Batik Petal Pushers collection although you could easily use your favorite colors instead or simply pull from your stash!
On Monday I published another pattern, this time for Timeless Treasures. Serenity’s Prayer features the Serenity fabric collection. The pattern is free. Click here to learn more about my new pattern and where you can get it.
On Tuesday, Block 10 in the Sew Let’s QAL was released. Click here to view my version of this adorable button block and to learn where you can get the free pattern.
Well that was my week.
Now let's see who made this week's feature
As usual, there were many beautiful quilts linked up last week. These are the ones that caught my eye.
First up is Vicki @ Vicki’s Crafts and Quilting, who shared her July Island Batik challenge quilt. Lovely!
Learning seemed to be a theme last week, and that leads me to the next feature—Anja @ Anja Quilts. Anja is participating in the Summer Sampler QAL. Every month, the new block pattern features a new technique. What a great way to expand your knowledge of quilting techniques!
Speaking of learning, you just have to visit Gail @ Quilting Gail, who shared a video of her webbed quilt technique.
One technique I’d love to try someday is hand quilting. For now though, I’ll watch the experts like Karen @ Quilts Etc show me how it’s done.
Finally, I want to congratulate Alice, who made incredible progress on her Almost Bargello. Apparently being featured last week was the push she needed to work on this long forgotten project. Kudos Alice, and I hope the trend continues and you get the quilt done!
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!

Our Next Giveaway!
Our next giveaway is September, so gather up your quilts! Since September is 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.
