C & T Blog and a Huge Giveaway

I am celebrating today!

You have asked me over and over, and now I am finally showing you one of my unique ways to make my original 3D flowers.   I have been working with this method since I first created it in 2008.   Since then I have made large art quilts using it such as 'The First Flower', 'Whimsical Wonder' and 'Rhythm 'n' Blues', all of which have been juried into the Canadian National Juried Show and AQS shows.  You can see these art quilts in my 3D Quilt Gallery.  I now teach this method in workshops with wonderful results that you can see here.

Now, for the first time, you can use my technique and make this adorable wall hanging.  The fabric is 'Apple Of My Eye' from an amazing designer Amanda Herring who designs for Riley Blake Fabrics.


I have my tutorial of this wonderful 3D method over at the C & T Publishing blog.   Go and check me out.

To celebrate this milestone, I am having a giveaway of 6 fat quarters of 'Moonlit Sonata' by Paintbrush Studios..... wait there is more!


If I get 30 new followers or 200 comments, I am going to throw in another 6 fat quarters from the 'Moonlit Sonata' collection.  That is 12 fat quarters to one lucky winner!



Here's the details:
1.   Leave a comment, any ol' comment at all.
2.  If you are a follower, leave another comment telling me so.  ( I do love new followers, just saying=)
3.  I will make a draw on Friday November 16th.  Good luck!

Hey, Jackie! I am a "newish" follower (about a month). Loved your sense of humor and bright, bright colors! So, I have been lurking around in the background. Can that be interpreted as stalking? Anyway, love your site, and for the record you were TOTALLY robbed on the Bloggers Quilt Festival.

DonnaRae said...

Is the foam washable? I mean like after you make a wall quilt, if you had to wash it could you with the foam flowers? If not maybe make them detachable?

The very first wall quilt I ever made had a 3 D flower in the middle and I used some of my grandmother's fabric she gave me. I still have that wall hanging. What a great bunch of fabric to be won!!
