Here's Where Flowers Bloom

Welcome to my turn on the Where Flowers Bloom Blog Hop, hosted by Carla at Creatin' In the Sticks.
                           
I've shown a couple sneak peeks, and now it's time for the full reveal of Sunflowers!

Sunflower Runner by QuiltFabrication

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!

Have a great time viewing all the other flower projects, and I'll keep you posted on the pattern for this one.

Happy Quilting!

Where Flowers Bloom Blog Hop Starts Today

Another blog hop starts today! This one involves flowers for the Where Flowers Bloom Blog Hop, hosted by Carla over at Creatin' In the Sticks.

                                                          

Here's the list of participating bloggers and all of their flower projects:

Wow! That's quite the list, isn't it? 

My day is Friday, June 15, and I feel I've gotten a late start. Here's a sneak peek of my flowers so far:

Hmm, looks like these could be Dresden flowers, doesn't it? There's a lot of work left to do, which means I'm going to leave you to enjoy today's blog hop quilters and their flowers - have fun!

Happy Quilting!

It's Fair Time!

Tomorrow, June 9, marks the start of one of our local fairs, and my favorite to enter quilts into because there's over 350 quilts to see.



Given that I make 40-50 quilts per year, a fraction of those become destined to go to the fair, though they are not created for that intent. I tend to make the quilt, and based on how it turns out, I then decide whether it's a fair candidate.

I also enter my own creations, not quilts made from other's patterns. And with that, this year's entries are the following, in no particular order or category:

Fireworks wall hanging

Slots lap quilt

Strawberry Splendor wall hanging

and the Zee Quilt.

If your just seeing these quilts, click on the links to read more about them, and see close up pictures. Also, the first five are available as patterns in my Craftsy and Etsy shops.

The fair starts tomorrow, but due to my son's graduation from college, I won't get to the fair until June 16. For those of you local, don't spoil it for me - I'll let you know how it goes after that date.

If you have never entered a fair before, I highly recommend it. You never know what will happen, plus it's a great way to show off your work!

Happy Quilting, and see you at the fair!
