Today is Linky Party Tuesday and I'm linking up with Connie and friends at Freemotion by the River. Won't you join us?
There is a Christmas Quilt Show going on and you are invited! Michele at Quilting Tutorials has coordinated an online quilt show that is already drawing interest from quilters across the globe.
The show started on November 23 and will continue until November 30. During this time, you are invited to enter on Michele`s blog by posting a picture of a Christmas quilt(s) and also qualify to win a prize. When you visit her blog here, you will already find a gorgeous selection of Christmas quilts for your browsing interest, a collection that is growing as we speak,
You`ll find the rules and all the info you need on how to enter the show and how to qualify for the many prizes that will be available. There are at least 14 sponsors, offering prizes that include fabric, thread, books, patterns, and much more,
On December 3 and 4, there will be an opportunity to vote for your favorite quilt in the Viewer`s Choice Award, so make sure you return to Michele`s blog on those dates.
If you visit me on a regular basis, you`ll know I am a little obsessed with Santas, so for my quilt entry, of course I had to choose a Santa! I selected "So For Goodness Sake ", a mini-quilt just perfect for my table frame.
The pattern for the stitchery was designed by Cedarberry Stitches that I found in their shop last year. Their web site is full of other wonderful stitchery patterns just as much fun as Santa! When you join their mailing list, you receive a free stitchery pattern.
I framed the centre stitchery with 1.5 inch strips, and used the same size for the checkerboard borders. For the backing, I actually pieced a few small pieces of a fabric that I have had in my stash for awhile...a favorite of mine so I wasn't going to waste a smidgen!
Thanks, Michele and the wonderful sponsors for giving me the opportunity to enter a quilt show without having to leave the house. And thanks to Barb at Bejeweled Quilts. When I saw her post with her beautiful entries for the show, it was a great reminder to me to get my quilt ready for publication, so please visit her for some Christmasy inspiration as well!
It's a great day for quilting!
