I can't tell you how happy your comments have made me!! Several of you have seen and used the technique I showed in Part Two of the sew~along, but most have not, and were intrigued to try it, if not anxious to do so. To be clear, this is not a technique I invented, but have used for several years. I'm a teacher at heart and nothing makes me more jazzed than to share a good hint with other quilters!
My thanks for taking the time to comment and let me know your thoughts.....and so....that brings me to announce a winner.
Congrats to Mary who's comment was.....
....WOW! What a way to do that block! I'm sure going to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.
Mary won a pair of heirloom scissors pictured above!!
Last week, I received an email from Patty E. who lives in Oregon. She sent me photos of several of the quilts she made from the Prairie Women's Sewing Circle club. Patty has made ALL of the quilts thus far! Amazing!! Patty was a little shy in sharing her photos because she used 1930's reproductions instead of the Civil War repro fabrics I used. I encouraged her to show them because that's simply what Patty likes, and I knew we'd love to see what she'd done. I think they're lovely...and I'm pretty sure you will think so, too! Check out my version of the same quilts on the PWSC club covers on my sidebar. Really fun to see how different and beautiful they are!!
Patty took the Yo-yo's that belong in the center of the Journey One Bonus project and framed them. Very striking in their simplicity!
Patty's version of my signature quilt, Remember Me, featured on the front cover of Journey Two.
Patty's version of Olde Settler's Way, also from Journey Two.
Patty's rendition of Journey Two's quilt Next Door Neighbor.
Last but not least is the Prairie Huswyfe, also from Journey Two.
Patty....thanks so much for sharing your lovely quilts with all of us!!
One last thing I thought I'd share with you is a new product you just may need to know about.
My friend, Ronda, gave this to me...thanks Miss Ronda! It's specially formulated for delicately cleaning vintage textiles such as quilts, linens, fabric and lace. Look for it at your local quilt shop.
Please visit me here tomorrow for an announcement I'm very excited to share with you. Until then....Pam
