Not going to lie, I am little sad that Stitch Pink is over. Alas, I have a gazillion projects that I should be finishing. I just need to look at them like a stitch along and finish one each month…or until a new project catches my eye. 🙂 Sound familiar? Oh, and before I forget I have something very exciting in the works, a new website and blog!!! Yay!! I have been wanting to do this for quite some time and it looks like it will be a reality very soon. I will keep you all posted as I do not want you to miss on future posts and info. 🙂
Another photo of this gorgeous quilt. If you’re playing catch up on this quilt. I have posted links to each block and all the details/tips I had for piecing my blocks, beginning with the Oct. 1 post. All the tools and aids I used as well as the my favorite marking tools are now listed in my shop here.
I realized I forgot to include more details on the quilting. Machine quilting available here. Info on machine quilting here. I used a variety of scrap batting pieces I had saved up leftover from client quilts. I end up with a ton of leftover pieces of batting. I save them and use them in my personal quilts. I just butt them up as I go as I progress down the quilt. I do not piece them together prior. I used Innova Tech Thread on top and Magna-Glide Prewound magnetic bobbins in the bobbin. Quilting design is Deb’s Feathers, which I do not yet have on my website, but you can request it.
Links to all the blocks can also be found in the Moda Stitch Pink Archives here.
Now the big debate starts…when to start decorating for Christmas. I am typically an after Thanksgiving Christmas Tree kind of girl, although my girls have been known to convince me to put it up before. What about you guys? Are decorating for Christmas yet? I am still enjoying fall decor and pumpkins.
Can you spot our kitty Vinny?? It snowed here in Michigan yesterday, but it is warming back up…thank goodness! I am not ready for snow. If it snows early again, I may be tempted for early Christmas decorating.
Thank you to everyone that stopped by on my previous post. It was wonderful to hear all your favorite treats. Many of you shared your own cancer journey. They touched my heart. I hope to one day live in a world where no one has to make that journey. So the big winner of the basket giveaway is…
Linda in PA…”My favorite fall treat in Autumn mix candy corn and pumpkins. My all year long favorite is chocolate. Happy Anniversaries! Your quilt is beautiful! Giving it to your friend was a loving and generous thing to do! Last October I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had a double mastectomy in January. So I am a nine month breast cancer survivor.“
Congratulations Linda! Please email me your info! Also, the Instagram winner will be posted shortly, so if you left a comment there, be sure to check that out.
