Wednesday Wait Loss 131

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

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

I’ve had a busy week.

I finished my Island Batik July challenge quilt and published it on Wednesday, after my regular Wednesday Wait Loss post. Click here to read all about it.

On Monday I published the schedule for the Island Batik Beat the Heat Blog Hop, which is happening all month long. Don’t miss the great giveaways, fabulous batiks, and gorgeous quilts! Click the link to read my post and to enter to win a precut batik collection.

Yesterday I published a new pattern to celebrate the batik collection being featured on Day 2 of the Beat the Heat Blog Hop. I’m having a sale on the pattern this week. Don’t miss it! Click here to learn more.

Well that was my week!

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

As usual, several quilt projects caught my eye.

First up is Kat @ Scrapbox Quilts, who is participating in the 365 Day Quilt Along Project, in which she is learning a new quilting motif every day. The quilt along uses ruler work, which is what caught my eye. You guys know how I’m trying to learn that myself right now.

The resulting quilt from what she’s learned so far is awesome! Visit her blog to learn more about the quilt along.

Nancy @ Grace and Peace Quilting shared Wallflower, a stunning quilt in solids. Apparently twirling your quilt is a thing now, so she shared a photo of that too. Lovely photo—-it’s easy to see why this is a thing. Gotta try that myself!

Finally, I’d like to share Kathleen @ Kathleen McMusing’s July Island Batik challenge. Our challenge last month was to play with Aurifil thread and man she sure did!

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.

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.

Important note

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

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.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
