A Nice Giveaway!

I love Jacquelynne Steves fabrics so when I saw this giveaway, I thought I would share it with you.

 I was planning on posting my current projects and was trying to figure out how to get the link of one of her fabric lines to show it on here and was not at all sure how to do it. ( Bare with me, I will learn!!  LOL  )

I am working on the Joy, Love,Peace, Noel wall hanging. As soon as I saw the fabric I knew I had to make it for my grandsons.The colors are so vivid and rich and it has a very nice soft feel. The characters are whimsical and so adorable that they just makes you smile to look at them.

 My plan was to get it done by this past Christmas but needless to say, the timeline has changed a tad. I decided to outline quilt the  design in a very fine gold metallic thread. After tying several metallic threads I finally found one that wouldn't fray and break after a few minutes of quilting. I am using the Gutermann Metallic Effect Thread and I love it. It sews so nice and smooth.  I wish the shop I went to carried all the different prints because I certainly would have loved to add them on but I am happy I got a pretty backing and the panel. I will post pictures of it here as soon as I can.

I have several other quilts in progress for my family members but I have been taking time out to make some baby quilts to donate to the Project Linus Quilts. I really love making the baby stuff. It might be something you all might looking into.

Well anyway I will save all of that for the next post :) have a wonderful evening and check out this contest!
