Wednesday Wait Loss

Wednesday Wait Loss 132

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.

On Saturday I published my extremely long list of projects to finish for August. Looking over the list, I realize that I could really use a lot of encouragement if you have a minute. <grin>

One project that is done and that I got to share on Saturday was Funky Friends, both of which I finished a while back. The Funky Friends are made for the Island Batik Market booth and they are always made with the latest batiks. Click over to my post to read more about these.

On Monday I published this week’s schedule for the Island Batik Beat the Heat Blog Hop which is happening all month long. Don’t miss the awesome giveaways and gorgeous batiks! Click the link to read my post and to enter to win this week’s precut batik collection which is from Garden Party.

Yesterday I posted my version of the latest block in our Sew Let’s QAL. 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 Nancy @ Grace and Peace Quilting, who shared this stunning Church Window quilt.

Next is Chris @ Chris Knits Sews who shared a few sunflower blocks she is making into a table runner. There is just something about sunflowers that I simply love.

What is your favorite flower?

I’m fascinated by the quilt Worksforme 19 shared on Flickr. Apparently its for the dash of her antique Bullitt car. So cool!

Finally, I’d like to share the excitement of Gail @ Quilting Gail who has a new design wall in her sewing room! It even rolls up out of the way if needed.

Do you have a design wall in your sewing room?

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.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

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!

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

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

Mostly I’ve been working on my July Island Batik challenge this week. In fact, that’s why this post is a bit late in going up—I’m working on the binding and will be posting my quilt before the end of the day. Be sure to come back to see my July Island Batik challenge quilt!

Here’s a peek.

On Tuesday I posted my tips for Block 11 of the Sew Let’s QAL. It’s fabric bolts and a great way to feature your favorite fabrics in a block!

Click here to read my post and to learn where you can get the free block pattern.

Last Thursday was the last day in the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop. Click over to view my new table runner pattern and my free tutorial on partial piecing!

I had a giveaway too—a free PDF copy of my new pattern, Peppermint Twist Table Runner. I entered the names of everyone who left a comment on that post and then let Random.org select a random winner.

So Rosemary I hope you’re listening because you have until midnight EST Tuesday, August 6th to email me so I can send you your free pattern! If Rosemary does not respond I’ll announce a new winner on the next Wednesday Wait Loss.

Well that was my week.

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

As usual, several quilt projects caught my eye.

I’d like to start off by sharing the quilts made by two regular followers who don’t often link up because they don’t have blogs. But their quilts are always gorgeous! So hopefully now they will link up more and share with us their awesome talent!

Up first is Susie. Susie is an awesome friend and a beyond talented quilter. Last week she linked up this charming mini wall hanging.

Next is Alice is the best of bestest friends. I’m proud to say that with a little Wednesday Wait Loss encouragement, she finished this stunning Almost Bargello quilt in practically no time.

Thanks so much for supporting my blog gals! Love ya, and I can’t wait to see your next projects.

Next is Karrin @ Quilts Etc, who shared a tutorial on Dresden Plates and this stunning quilt!

Finally is my friend Terri @ Meanderings Along Lizard Creek who shared an Island Batik table runner she made for the Christmas Collection Blog Hop. Gorgeous! I just love how those pastel batiks compliment her vintage Christmas ornaments.

Terri doesn’t always get a chance to link up to Wednesday Wait Loss, but I sure love it when she does!

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

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

Saturday was my day on the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop. I debuted a new pattern for the hop—Peppermint Twist Table Runner—and provided a photo tutorial on partial piecing.

Peppermint Twist Table Runner and the original Peppermint Twist and Water Vortex patterns are all on sale until Tuesday July 30th so don’t miss out! Click here to visit my shop.

Click here to read my post and to enter my giveaway! You might win a free Peppermint Twist pattern just by leaving a comment. Also, don’t forget to enter the blog hop giveaway by filling out the form you’ll find at the end of my post—you might win a Wintertide fat quarter bundle!

On Monday I published a video of the box opening of my second Island Batik Ambassador goodies box.

Click here to watch my video and to read more about each of the wonderful items in my box. You’ll learn the names of each batik collection and where you can purchase it, along with each of the other goodies they included in my box.

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 Jocelyn @ Canadian Needle Nana, who recycled a shirt for making a quilt! Isn’t it pretty? In my opinion the shirt fabric lends the perfect texture to the sashings that frame those lovely flowers.

Next is Deana @ Daughters of Dorinda who shared an adorable truck quilt top she’s making for her grandson. She hasn’t finished anything lately so this is a big win for her! Let’s leave an encouraging comment on her blog for a quick finish to this cute quilt.

Finally, I’d like to feature Gail @ Quilting Gail again this week, this time for these way too cute zippered bags that she made for some little girls. Look closely—that fabric was colored by the little girls themselves! Isn’t that special?

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!
