Seasons of Life Quilt Book Giveaway!

Thanks again to C&T Publishing, I'm having another giveaway today! This one is for all the quilters who love applique and embroidery - it's the Seasons of Life Quilt book by Sandra L Mollon (affiliate link).


I'm including the affiliate link above so that you can check out some of the pages found in the book - Amazon does a great job of showing snippets of books.

The Seasons of Life book is contains 13 full size Baltimore Album block patterns that can be set in several ways for a beautiful quilt.



Here's a few layout ideas shown in the book:







Sandra goes over all the details needed for perfect applique: choosing fabrics, tools needed, applique techniques, and even making dimensional flowers. There's also a section of embroidery stitches, and using ink and colored pencils to that extra special shading to the blocks.

To enter to win the Seasons of Life Quilt book using the Rafflecopter widget below.

Sneak Peeks!

I've been busy, busy, busy the last two weeks, designing, stitching, and quilting! Not to disappoint, I'm sharing a few sneak peeks of what I've been working on.

First up is a little snippet of a block I've designed for the Just Let Me Quilt's It's a Guy Thing blog hop, starting on Monday, July 26.


I was absolutely giddy when this block was done - it turned out so cute! Wish I could show more but you'll just have to wait till next Friday for the big reveal!

Next up is progress on the Block Base Plus Sew Along quilt. Now that all eight blocks are finished, I'm making sure I get this quilt done in time for the linky party on August 16.

I showed my progress last Friday, and cut more triangles to fill out the rest of the border with quarter square blocks. Thank goodness for the Crafters Edge Crossover II machine - it made cutting and sewing these triangles into blocks really easy!

In between these two projects, I had 5 quilts to quilt for a friend who is participating in the 70273 Project - read about it at www.The70273Project.org

A simple stipple in white thread was all that was needed to let those X's shine.

And now I need to return my focus to stitching and quilting since the Guy Thing project is not very far along. Nothing like a sprint to the deadline!!

Have a great weekend quilting!
