Giveaway! Giveaway! Giveaway!
Did I get your attention?:)
I don't know where to begin...I'm giddy for so many reasons. First that sweet girl Dana has a quilt book out in the world! A QUILT BOOK by our own Old Red Barn Co. chica who brought so many of us together out in internet world and real life!!
Here is the book in all it's glory...imagine quilts....yeeeefreakinghaaaa!! Check out that quilt on the cover....posy patrol...love it...great scrap buster!
This one is called princess crowns but for some reason I keep thinking about corn on the cob! I must be hungry! Don't you think this would be a great scrap buster too...maybe with all the centers one unified color...maybe corn yellow?:) Ha!!
But the other reason I'm soooooooo incredibly giddy is I pieced a quilt in this book!! Yep...little old me...I made the zip it! quilt top!! Not only did I get the honor of being the only other person to make a quilt top for Dana's book....
...I also made the inspiration! Round 12 at ORBC was scrappy Dresden Plate. Not having time to do a whole quilt I made a few pieces and after ironing them thought they looked like houses so I made the pillow on the right....which was Dana's inspiration for the zip it! quilt!
Can we call this three degrees of Dresden?:)
Can't wait to get this home and partnered up with the Mega Button pillow made out of the leftovers...can you see the buttonhole embroidered on the placket?
I can tell you...Dana sure did come up with a great title for her book because I have been majorly inspired.
Yep...had to make dance floor!
First thing I thought of was all the texty prints and black on white or cream I have been collecting. Perfect for this quilt paired with a couple of great black tone on tones and pow!
dance floor a go-go!!
Couldn't stop there. I just love an ampersand but went low volume.
Stacks of five inch low volume squares and the packs of Asbury charms won from Amy at
During Quiet Time did the trick!
So many fun fabrics frolicking on this quilt. Yes, I said frolicking! The amazing thing is when you see the quilt up close you don't notice the ampersand....
....but step back from it and like magic it appears!!! I can't wait to get these quilted...Kathleen they are coming your way. Guess I best look through my stash for backings!
