Bangles, Geese and giveaways...

How has your week been? I finished up 2 quilt tops and it feels like some good progress. But before I show you those ~ just a reminder about the book giveaway post here.

It's a perfect example of how talented and amazing Tracey is. Leave a comment there for a chance to win and really ~ you're going to want to keep hanging around at Traceyjay Quilts!

I finished my "Bangles" quilt this week. The pattern is from Hand Quilted With Love. It was a slow project, but very doable and I'm so happy with the results. I'll be back with some helpful tips soon.





Once the design wall was cleared, I couldn't wait to arrange my Redbird Bee blocks. Another quilt that would have been slow going with all those Flying Geese, had it not been for the awesome girls in my Bee!




The inspiration quilt and the block construction can be found here. I'm thinking of piecing a backing for this one with some leftover coordinates...


This Saturday I'll be at the Jackman's Holiday Expo in Illinois with the quilts from my book. It sounds like a fun day with lots of ideas for the holidays!

And today I'm making some new pillows. Fall is here and I love the rich colors in this Amy Butler print! Hope your weekend is filled with some fun Fall activities!
