My Follow Your Bliss Sew-a-Long, and More

The picture is not the greatest.  Bad lighting.  But at the top it says:  Cut - Sew - Quilt.  And at the bottom it says:  Repeat as Needed!  Not sure what to do next but I'm thinking a narrow inner border followed by a 3" Outer border.  Then it will be time to embellish with buttons and what nots.  You can check out what Sarah is up to here.  While at her blog check out the Flicker pics.

My latest AAQI quilt????  Not sure...it is awfully dark.  But I did want it dark.  I'm calling it
"Midnight in the Garden".  I'm hoping to lighten it up with some FMQ using bright thread.  If it doesn't work I'll have another little quilt to put up on the wall.

Guess what???  I won a quilt book of my choice at the "Celebrating Big Girl Pants" blog.  My wonderful friend Em picked my name out of the hat.  I'm so excited.  You should go see what everyone who contributes to the blog (I'm one of them) is doing.   The link is on my side bar.  This Blog is dedicated to conquering the fear of FMQ.  Em's quilting is to die for.  Lots of inspiration there.

Well I'm off to working on projects in my sewing room.  So many projects so little time...lol.

Wishing you a glorious, quilty day.

Hugs, Cathy
