Giveaway @ Stitch and Quilt

Giveaway Alert
One of the bloggers that I follow has changed the name of her blog and the domain.  It was supposed to switch over seamlessly, but I wasn't getting updates.   So Pigtales and Quilts  is now Stitch and Quilt.   To get the word out about the change, she is having a giveaway sponsored by The Fat Quarter Shop. So go to the giveaway and enter to win a fat quarter bundle of Mimosa in one of four colorways - because there will be FOUR WINNERS!

I like them all, so I am glad I don't have to pick one.

Scraptastic Tuesday

Playing with scraps again this week.  Here's the second block for the Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM.  I tried to stay close to the suggested colors to make the selections easy.

Growing Up Odd Quilt Finish

This week I finished my Growing Up Odd quilt.  You can find the tutorial at one of my favorite scrap quilt tutorial sites -- Wedding Dress Blue.  This quilt is California twin sized.  My niece longarm quilted it with BRIGHT ORANGE thread!!!  I was worried at first, but it reminds me of jeans from the 80's.  It was quilted with the Egyptian Eye pattern.

 
The back was a stash buster for all those novelty fabrics that my great nephew likes.  He helped pick them from our stashes.

Sew Sweet Simplicity

Exploring options to what to start next.  I know I will be doing one quilt either from Wedding Dress Blues or Bonnie Hunter.  Not sure which one matches my ugly scraps yet.

I'm also considering starting a BOM project like this one:

Growing Up Odd -- A Scrappy Finish

I finally finished my Growing Up Odd quilt that I had been working on for a while.  I have already given it to my great nephew.  It's already on his bed.  I hope to get better pictures of it soon.  Today's the last day to enter the Scrap Challenge Quilt 4.  I got this quick picture.

WIP Wednesday

I home from traveling and visiting all summer.  Here's the Growing Up Odd scrap quilt that I am working on again.  The tute can be found At Wedding Dress Blue blog.


These are scrappy squares from my "ugly" scraps stash.  My niece helps me with collecting these too.  This is for a California Twin bed.  The squares are 2" (1.5" finished).  I'm happy with the progress thus far.
