Sneak Peek!

Today is just a teaser of an almost finished wall hanging.  Remember my scrap aqua flowers?  Well, they're off the frame and being blocked, still with binding and sleeve to go.  But it's sooo pretty, I can't wait to give some sneak peeks!
The green background has leaves and tiny McTavishing with pebbles.  And the border, oh the border!  
Makes me swoon!  Gorgeous feathers surrounded by scribbling and a scroll/piano key border.  Incredibly beautiful, if I say so myself!

Once it's all dry, I'll put the finishing touches on and tell you how I did that stunning border.

On another awesome note, my favorite online classroom platform, Craftsy, is having a quilt kit giveaway! 
 Aren't these pretty???  Which quilt kit would you love to win?  One randomly selected quilter will get to choose either the starry True Blue Quilt Kit or the elegant Blue Garden Quilt Kit.  Even better, the kit comes with the coordinated backing for the quilt!  Now that's a great prize!

I do have to say that this contest is open to residents of the US and Canada, so sorry to my international friends.  

To enter, click here.  There is no purchase necessary, and if you're not a member of Craftsy, it's easy to sign up.  Please, one entry per person, and the winner will be chosen by Craftsy on August 27, 2014.  

And if you happen to decorate cakes (I did for 20 years!), Craftsy is also having a giveaway for you! 
The same rules apply as for the quilt kit giveaway, and the prize includes a 55-piece Ateco Stainless-Steel Decorating Set plus free enrollment in the new online Craftsy class, The Perfect Cupcake.  Yummy!  I remember getting my 40 piece decorating set when I was 15--totally awesome to have more tools to create with!  Click here to enter!

Good luck!

Have a great quilty day!

  1. I love your quilt. Is it paper pieced? Is it your pattern? I have been admiring it and would like to learn this technique. Great wallhanging.


Thank you so much for just made my day!
