Wednesday Wait Loss 119

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

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

Last week was mostly spent in the wonderful company of my daughter as she graduated from college and moved back home.

Now I’m on my way to Quilt Market in Kansas City! I can’t wait to hook up with friends and colleagues as we celebrate the best of quilting. Be sure to follow me as I share what I see.

By the way, I finished a Quilt Market quilt last week, and I’ll be showing it to you after I get photos of it hanging in the Timeless Treasures booth. I’ve got three quilts hanging in the Island Batik booth so I’ll be sharing those as well!

Well, that was my week!

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

There were a lot of beautiful quilts linked up last week! Here are my favorites.

First up is Anja @ Anja Quilts, who shared the quilt she’s making for the Medallion Magic Quilt Along. Isn’t is wonderful so far? I can’t wait to see how this one progresses.

Next up is Jocelyn @ Canadian Needle Nana, who shared her Photograph blocks, which remind me of a modern version of an Eye Spy block. Jocelyn also shared an intriguing recipe and a funny story about a robin. Be sure to pay her a visit!

Finally, I want to give a shout out to Laura @ Slice of Pi Quilts, who will be having her first booth at Quilt Market this week! Here’s Hydra, one of Laura’s new patterns.

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

On Saturday I recapped my goals for April quilting. How did I do? Not too bad as it turns out! For example, I made some progress on the graduation quilt I’m making for my daughter who’s a big Star Trek fan. Click here to read about my other April projects.

On Monday I published my impossibly long list of things to do for May, including my Island Batik May challenge quilt. Click here to read my list of May projects. Leave me a word of encouragement if you can. <grin>

Yesterday the Partners in Design shared the last block in Segment 1 of our quilt along, the Sew Let’s Quilt Along. It’s a cute quilt shop block! Click here to see my version and to learn where you can download the pattern.

I also published a project you can make with the blocks that have been released so far. To enter our Grand Prize giveaway at the end of the quilt along in September, you have to make either a quilt top or a series of projects that use each of the 12 blocks in the quilt along. Click here to learn more about my project idea for Segment 1.

Well, that was my week!

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

There were a lot of beautiful quilts linked up last week! Here are my favorites.

First up is Alison @ Little Bunny Quilts who linked up her April Island Batik Challenge, Pink Stars. What a wonderful design!

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

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

Last week I completed my April Island Batik challenge. The challenge was to create a baby quilt using our Accuquilt Go! cutting system. Here’s my quilt!

To read more about the quilt, click here.

On Monday I caught you up on my Island Batik surprise fabrics—the fabrics that come wrapped in gift wrap waiting for us to unwrap them at the proper moment and share them with you! So if you’re looking for luscious batiks (modeled by an adorable kitty), click here to read my post.

Well, that was my week!

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

Here are my favorite posts from last week. Since I was encouraging you to link up spring quilts, those were the ones that caught my eye.

First up is Alison @ Little Bunny Quilts, who shared this beautiful quilt top she’s calling Radiant Jewel. Radiant indeed!

Next is Vasudha @ Storied Quilts, who shared the quilt she made for the Be a Diamond blog hop. It’s called Diamond Showers and it’s it wonderful?

Vicki @ Vicki’s Crafts and Quilting also shared her quilt for the Be a Diamond blog hop. It’s a table runner and it simply sparkles!

Finally, Kathleen @ Kathleen McMusing shared her April Island Batik challenge—a quilt she called Wild Baby. I love this!

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

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

Last week I released a new pattern! Cane Weave was designed using the Are You Kitten Me fabric collection from Dear Stella. Cane Weave is on sale in my store until Saturday at midnight EST, so hurry there to get your copy!

Click here to read all about my pattern release.

Yesterday, Block 4 in the Sew Let’s QAL was released. What a fun block! Click here to read all about it and to learn where you can download the free pattern.

I finished quilting my Island Batik challenge for April, and I’ll bind it and get a post up on Saturday. The challenge this month was to use our new Accuquilt Go! cutters to make a baby quilt. I had such fun! Here’s a sneak peek at the quilting.

The rest of the week I spent with my husband and daughter, celebrating Easter. I hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Well, that was my week!

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

Here are my favorite posts from last week. Since I was encouraging you to link up spring quilts, those were the ones that caught my eye.

First up is Nancy @ Grace and Peace Quilting, who shared her Spring Joyful Barn Star. I love the quilting on this!

Next is Vasudha @ Storied Quilts, who shared her April Flowers quilt. I love the colors in this!

Lisa shared several spring quilts on Flicker: Bunny Bag, Daisies, and House Wren. These are so cute, especially that fat little birdy!

Although it’s not spring related, I want to close with Frederique @ Quilting Patchwork Applique, who shared her plan to help after the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral. Pay her a visit and learn how you can help too.

So Who Won the Giveaway?

Last week I was so longing for spring quilts, so I encouraged everyone to link them up. Up for grabs was this spring-inspired bag of scraps. For every spring quilt you linked up you got two chances to win; for other quilt linkups you got one chance.

So who won?

I let InLinkz pick the winner this time and it picked Allison @ Little Bunny Quilts! Allison, please email me your address so I can mail your prize to you.
