Second month of twelve. The Traditional Block this month is Snail’s Trail (below left). My modern version is below right. This was a really fun block to design. I love the 3D effect! Please vote for my block! Last month I won by only 4 votes, so every vote counts! To vote and/or share go to this link: http://a.pgtb.me/MfCtTr/h5Cj1?w=36927840&e=9986782
Just arrived! My goodie bag from Modern Quilts Unlimited Magazine for winning the MQUmag/Michael Miller “Everything Old is New Again” July Block Challenge. 2 nice books, some great neutral thread for my long arm from YLI, Sulky, and Superior Threads, and Famore’ snips and curved embroidery scissors (they work great cutting fabric with the tips). Thank you, Vicki Anderson of Modern Quilts Unlimited Magazine.
It is a little scarey to publish your first blog post. I have been wanting to do this for a while, and now have taken the plunge. I entered my very first challenge this past month, and won with the quilt block “Spinning Transparent Geese”.
Modern Quilts Unlimited Magazine http://www.modernquilts.mqumag.com/july-block-and-quilt-challenge-winner/ and Michael Miller Fabrics are sponsoring a 12 month block challenge, “Everything Old is New Again”. Every month there will be a new block and at the end of the 12 months, the blocks will be put together to make a quilt and then there will be a quilt challenge. Spinning Transparent Geese is my take on the traditional flying geese quilt block. I was really excited! You would have thought I’d won the lottery! I have been thinking about doing a transparency quilt, and this was a fun exercise. I was really happy with how it turned out.
If I’m not riding, I’m quilting….
