Wednesday Wait Loss 137

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 shared a version of my True Patriot pattern, which Cindy Ganschow made as a Quilt of Valor. Click here to learn more about her version and where you can get my free pattern.

Also, on Friday and Saturday I attended Pro-Stitcher classes at Always in Stitches. Pro-Stitcher is a program that computerizes longarm quilting. It’s so cool!

On Monday, I decided to revisit the past and start blogging about some of my older quilts. To start, I told the story of my first quilt. If you missed it, you can click here.

I also spent time last week creating new designs for Timeless Treasures. I’m happy to report that they liked two of them, so I’ve got some new patterns to write!

Well that was my week!

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

Last week, we had a lot of linkups to the My Favorite Block blog hop, hosted by Carla @ Creatin’ in the Sticks. I hope you visited the links and saw all these versatile blocks! If not, click the photos below to see the beautiful quilts.

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

Last week, I encouraged you to link up quilts that represented a new technique. I also encouraged any quilts related to school. There were many quilts linked up—here are my favorites.

First up is Michelle @ My Bijou Life who linked up this lovely project—Elephants by Edyta Sitar. Turns out this will be Michelle’s first quilt. Talk about learning a new technique!

Next up is Susie, who linked up her first two blocks from Capi’s Cake Mix Club. The blocks use a technique for making HSTs that’s new to Susie. Way to go Susie—these look great!

Next is Marsha @ Marsha’s Spot, who shared several projects, including sitting mats she’s making for a friend who’s a teacher. Way to go Marsha!

Finally, Celine @ Esprit Patch shared her latest Dear Jane blocks. To me, Dear Jane represents learning, learning, learning, like this block below which is called Cyclone.

I’m Having a Giveaway!

It’s September, so it’s time to gather up your quilts for our September giveaway! 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.

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.

Don’t have any new technique to showcase? You can also get two chances by linking up any school related quilt or quilt project. Just leave a comment or link to a blog post that explains why your quilty project is school or learning related.

As usual, if you don’t have a quilt project that fits the theme, you can still link any quilt project for one chance to win. What might you win? This time it’s a mini charm pack (22 five inch squares) of Island Batiks cut from my scraps.

Disclaimer: No purchase necessary to win. Giveaway is open to legal residents in the contiguous US only that are 18+ years of age. Giveaway starts at 7:00am EST September 4th and ends at 11:59pm EST on September10th. One winner will receive one mini charm pack of Island Batiks with a total value of approximately $10. Odds of winning determined by number of eligible entries received. How to enter: link up a photo of a quilty project to the linky below. Winner will be chosen by random.org on September 11, 2019 from all eligible entries and notified by email. If winner can not be reached via email or prize is unclaimed after three days, a new winner will be chosen by random.org. Winner is responsible for paying any taxes related to the prize.

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 shared the block I made for the Quilt Con Charity Quilt challenge. With my Bee Inspired beemates, I’m making a modern charity quilt that will hang at Quilt Con!

Wanna learn what Ce la fa! means? Click here to read my post.

On Monday I published this week’s schedule for the Island Batik Beat the Heat Blog Hop which is ending this week. There are awesome giveaways and gorgeous batiks so don’t miss out! You might win this week’s precut batik collection which is from Steam Engine, or one of the other giveaways. Be sure to visit each participant’s blog to enter because most giveaways are open until the end of the hop!

Yesterday I published my version of Block 13 in the Sew Let’s QAL. It’s thimbles! Don’t miss your chance to download this free quilt block pattern. Click the link to learn more.

On Tuesday I also published a project using the two blocks I’d made from Sew Let’s QAL Segment 3. It’s a handy zippered sewing caddy! Click here to learn how you can make one for yourself.

Well that was my week!

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

As usual, several quilt projects caught my eye.

First, I’d like to throw out some encouragement to my good friend Alice, who shared Dance which only lacks a binding to be finished, and Lady of the Great Lakes (an anniversary quilt) that she has been working on for years.

One of the reasons I started Wednesday Wait Loss was to provide encouragement to my fellow quilters to finish languishing works in progress. So let’s leave a comment here for Alice (she doesn’t have a blog) to encourage her to keep on working on these awesome quilts!

This week there was a lot of inspirational quilting up for display. First up is Nancy @ Grace and Peace Quilting who shared this quilt, made by her customer Bonnie. Nancy chose a modern design for this very modern quilt. To see the whole quilt, visit Nancy’s blog!

This quilt was made by her customer Patty, and since it features trucks, Nancy chose a tire track-like design. To see the whole quilt, click here and visit Nancy’s blog.

I learn a lot by looking at the quilting on quilts, such as how to make good choices! Do you do that too? <grin>

Kat @ Scrapbox Quilts shared her progress on her Dahlia panel. Isn’t it lovely? Such a great source of quilting ideas! Let’s encourage Kat to finish this wonderful quilt by visiting her blog.

Now onto quilts that are inspiring for other reasons. Andrea @ Mouse in My Pocket shared her Halloween crazy quilt in progress. This is such a clever way to use a panel! Love it.

Finally, Vasudha @ Storied Quilts shared her August Beat the Heat Blog Hop quilt. Isn’t it gorgeous?

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!
