Today is the Big Reveal Day

You may remember that in December I was working on a secret project. Quiltmaker magazine asked me to sew and quilt a quilt for an upcoming issue. I completed it in 3 weeks and very sadly, I shipped it off to them to be photographed. Lucky for me I had almost enough fabric to make one more for myself. I had to order more border fabric from Hancocks of Paducah and it arrived just so I can get the top completed before I leave for camp on Thursday.

The Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks magazine hits the newsstands today and you have a chance to win a copy of it on the Quilty Pleasures blog.

Here's my name in print:

Here's a picture of the whole quilt:

And here's my current quilt in progress:

The flowers will be raw edge appliqué, done on the long arm and the vines are bias strips and will be stitched down on the long arm also.

3 weeks??? That in itself is amazing but to have made such an awesome quilt in that time is incredible in my book. I love, love, love it!
