"Poetry...with needle and thread" and bloganniversary.
I finished this quilt with a saying of my own, though I must admit I am not very creative!!! But I like it :-)
Here is block 12 of the MQ from Born To Quilt. I still need to sew the block to the top and to find the right fabric for the surrounding borders.
Do you remember that I had started this quilt with a saying from Maggie Bonanomi's book With These Hands.
I'll show you the entire quilt again when the borders are sewn.
Last week I received this book and I think it is great. As I am about to resume piecing my Ciwil War tribute BOM quilt, it is truly motivating. There are many simple and charming quilts and accessories.
Can you believe my blog will be one year old on Feb 21st? Sharing my passion for needle and thread with you has been a true pleasure.
To celebrate, I will do a giveaway. I will offer three Blackbird Designs charts. To enter the draw, leave a comment on this post. You can participate wherever you are on the globe.
The first name drawn will choose the chart among the three, the second among the two remaining charts and the third name drawn will get the last chart.
I will pick up the names on March 6th.
Why so late??? just because I'm going to London for work next week and as soon as I'm back I will be off with my family for a week on the Mediterranean coast : relaxing, hiking and stitching are on the program along with lots of seafood ;-)
