My news this week is the results from the local fair. I'm happy to report that Strawberry Splendor was the big winner, with a 1st Place, and Best Quilting ribbon.

This fair is always fun to enter, with many beautiful quilts, and I can't wait to enter next year!

Now, let's look at last week's projects - I'm choosing an animal theme today. From Lisa Marie's Flickr page, this beautiful dragonfly;



from Mary at Made by Marney, this adorable hedge hog;

                                         

from Rebecca Grace at the Cheeky Cognoscenti, these beautiful birds;

                                        

and from Dione at the Clever Chameleon, this adorable bear.

Regatta Quilt

Here it is - the Regatta quilt from Kelly Young's Stash Statement (affiliate link), my June Book of the Month!

Regatta Quilt by QuiltFabrication





Using Kelly's system of block creation with scraps, this quilt was a great way to use up all of my blues. Here's Kelly's version that I saw at Quilt Market:


Kelly Young's Regatta quilt

and here's my version, a bit bluer and bigger.


Regatta Quilt full on

Of course, what sailboat quilt wouldn't be complete without some water in the background? And it was ready to sail away with all the wind as I was taking pictures!


Regatta Quilt water side

My Regatta is three rows longer than the one in the book, so it fits on a twin size bed. No more sails were added - they were just shifted around a bit to create my version.

And about those sails. Each one is quilted differently with straight lines - no two match. Here's a sample of some:


Regatta sails 1



Regatta sails 2



Regatta sails 3



Regatta sails 4

Notice all that wave quilting? Makes me want to spend a lazy day on a sailboat!

Almost forgot the back - it has sailboats too!

Aren't those Dresden plate sunflowers just adorable?

Especially with their puffed centers - the ladybugs certainly can't resist them!!

This has turned out so well, I'll be writing a pattern for it, with the release sometime next week. Everybody needs some bright sunflowers to chase away the dog days of summer!

In case your just finding this fun hop, here's the list of all the other participants, and there's a lot!
