Wednesday Wait Loss 128

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!

Click here to read all about my pattern. By the way, Broken Road is on sale in my shop until Saturday @ midnight EST! Click here to visit my online store.

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.

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

On Saturday I reviewed my quilty goals for the month. June was good to me and I got a lot of projects done. Click here to see what I made in June.

On Monday I set my goals for July. It’s a hefty list so I’m hoping I do as good as I did in June on them. Click here to see what I’m making this month and to leave me a little encouragement.

Well that was my week.

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

Last week I held a giveaway, awarding two points to anyone who linked up a red, white, or blue quilt and one point to any link up. More on that in a moment, but for now let’s feature all those wonderful red/white/blue quilts!

First up is Alice, who linked up four quilts, including her gorgeous triangle flag quilt and her shimmering Lady of the Great Lakes anniversary quilt. Way to go Alice!

Red, white and blue fabrics are super popular right now at the shop, so I wasn’t surprised by all the entries. Thanks gals for supporting me!

Next up is Denise @ For the Love of Geese, who linked up these two beauties. They are plum gorgeous. Click the images to visit each post.

Next is Vicki @ Vicki’s Crafts and Quilting, who linked up several projects she’s made to sell in her shop, including this cute round placemat. As you can see, you didn’t need to link up a patriotic quilt to qualify, just one that was mostly red/white/and or blue.

Yvonne @ Sew Yummy linked up two quilts, one of which was this fun Toronto Maple Leafs quilt.

Chris @ Chris Knits Sews linked up this awesome red/white/blue pillow!

Finally, Vasudha @ Storied Quilts didn’t link up a red/white/blue quilt but I wanted to feature it anyway because it’s so awesome. Vasudha revisited an old quilt and requilted it using her improved quilting skills. Skillfully done I say!

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!

No, I didn’t forget! <grin>

As usual, I assigned a letter to each entry and let Random.org choose a random winner.

Congratulations Alice! I’ll put your package of red/white/blue fabrics in the mail to you. With your four entries, you’ll surely put them to good use!

Next are Vasudha @ Storied Quilts and Pamela @ Pamela Quilts, who shared their June Island Batik Ambassador challenge projects.

Next is Alice, who shared the beginning of her “almost bargello” quilt, which has been underway for a while. I’m really intrigued by this design! Let’s cheer her onto a fast finish.

Last but not least is Pamela @ Mama Spark’s World, who is new to our little group. Let’s give her a great big Wednesday Wait Loss welcome and visit her blog to leave an encouraging comment. Pamela shared four pillows she made for her daughter, each one simply lovely.
