Give Away!

Sometimes I feel a little nutty with what's happening in my corner of the quilting world. I certainly can't focus on one thing, but flit around from project to project, fabric to fabric and idea to idea. What's happening this week? This one is bound and hung!
I'm playing with a simple version of my block inspired by Martha Stewart's magazine cover with those cute pillows. Grays, whites, blacks and golds.

I can't wait to make this "Birdbath" pattern using colors inspired by my dining room curtain fabric, from The Practical Guide to Patchwork.

More progress on the Zig Zag quilt.

And I cut up my "Modern Meadow" to make simple square in a square blocks.

I want to thank you all for hanging out with me in my nutty little corner of the internet. I'm a big fan of Kate Spain fabric (in fact someone has nominated me president of her fan club!!) and would like to share some of the gorgeousness. Next Wed. I'll draw from the comments on this post for a Fandango layer cake. Thanks for being here!!

  11. I'm not a huge fan of yellow, but I can't seem to get the thought of a yellow & gray quilt out of my head! Your blocks certainly aren't helping matters any. ;)

  15. I'm digging your first quilt shown on this post. I just discovered pinwheels (I'm new to this) a couple of months ago and found I love them to peices! Literally, I do them as peice work, refusing to use a pattern and I just love them and the whole process of deciding what goes where. I have some Kate Spain, I super love her too! I can use more - to make more pinwheels!!

  16. I ♥ Kate Spain and would love to win a Fandango layer cake! This post is full of inspiration. I think I need to print some pictures and start an inspiration wall. Maybe I'll cover my sewing room closet doors with cork and photos.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  18. I love your projects and really love knowing the inspiration behind the colors! I have been really wanting to get Fandango, but some other project always gets in the way so this would be FANTABULOUS!

  25. A feast for the eyes! I never really liked black in a quilt until a retreat I attended this past spring; I was amazed at how beautiful it is with Christmas fabrics.
    I just purchased the Practical Guide to Patchwork and I'm itching to make something also! I think the birdbath pattern looks just right, especially to accent the main fabric.
