Crazy Quilting asnd Giveaway

Pat Winter is a wonderful Crazy Quilt artist and if you have never seen any of her work then you should visit her at She is also having a Summer Giveaway if you are interested. If I win her giveaway I will be adding these things to my friendship quilt! She has also challenged us to do a giveaway as well so I have decided to join in the celebration of summer. So check it out on my sister blog Crazy at it's Best .

As you know I am a beginner crazy quilter and have been gathering my pieces for my friendship quilt. People from around the world have given me small stitched pieces, fabrics, trimmings and threads to add to this quilt. It will indeed be a quilt made from the Friendship of all my stitching friends. I am eager to actually start piecing the squares--unfortunately much of my stash is packed up preparing for my eventual move. If I had known it was going to take so long to sell the house, I would never have packed up all my beloved stash!!! If you would be interested in adding to my quilt project you can see all the details here. I think I may try to go ahead and start one block. I think I can come up with enough fabric to get it together and I have plenty of fibers and beads to at least get a start on it. I will keep you posted.

On the stitching front, I started my Jeanne Ries on 40 ct white linen using a beautiful red silk floss. I will try to get pictures over the weekend.

Until next time....Happy Stitching!

Kathy, that is so generous of you. I would love to stitch your Daffodil Garden Tapestry. I love yellow and this just looks fantastic. Thank you for inspiring us all.
