a giveaway from my favorite fabric designer!

Ms. Lila Tueller is having a giveaway on her blog! How cool is that? It is for a jelly roll and a layer cake of her new line called "Eden".

I love her designs. I am very partial to "Woodland Bloom" and "Soiree". The new wonky log cabin quilt I am am making for my bed is mostly "Woodland Bloom" with a little "Soiree" thrown in for good measure. I am in the process of finishing up the basting, so I can get quilting on it. Good thing, too is that our weather is going to drop considerably over the next two days. High of only 49 degrees tomorrow. Too bad I have to work tomorrow, or I would spend the whole day hand quilting my quilt!

I am not sure what I would make if I won. There are some awesome tutorials on Moda Bake shop, so maybe I would pick something from them to make with the prize. Or maybe, I would make another wonky log cabin quilt that was a bit more wonky than the one I am getting ready to quilt.

Thanks Lila for having a give away! I hope I get chosen.
Have a great day!

September Potluck Hexies!

I finished my hexagons for the September Potluck giveaway for http://hexagonquilt-along2.blogspot.com/ on Saturday. I am so excited to have met my goal; I wasn't sure I would make it!

When I visited the quilt store, these fabrics spoke to me. They are from the same line, and for the life of me I can't remember the fabric line, sorry.

I am a freezer paper girl. I am a baste through the fabric and the paper girl. This was a challenge for me. I was going to say that it took longer to do this method. But, I have changed my mind. With the freezer paper method, you have to include the ironing time, so it really doesn't take any more time once you are in the swing of things. The baste through the back is definitely not what I am used to, but I love how these turned out. I might be a convert!

While I would like to be the winner, I am okay with not winning! I will DEFINITELY be participating in the next Potluck, for sure!

And what would the "Great Hexagon Quilt-Alongs" be without Robyn? Thanks Robyn, for all you do. You are amazing!

Have a great day!
