Another week, another quilt started...

I have started another quilt this week - a zigzag quilt. The weather has been horrible so no good photos of fun quilting. I am slowly making my way through the pattern. It is quite a puzzle and as a puzzle lover, I am enjoying every minute of it. I based it on crazymomquilt's tutorial and used a chunk of my Ginger Blossom fabric stash Here's a little snippet...

Awful pic, fun quilt. Here's another where my puzzle has suffered from the Spring breezes blowing through the house...

I am trying to keep up with Old Red Barn Co.'s quilt along, although I am about a week behind everyone else. I am working on cutting it between zigzag sewing spurts. It's worthwhile for more than just having a beautiful quilt when you finish - she is giving away a gorgeous Janome 6600 to someone who has quilted along.

On another giveaway front, turning*turning is celebrating her 100th post with a giveaway of her own. She is giving away this beautiful wall hanging:

Post an answer to her question on her blog for the chance to win. She wants to know how you make time to make things. As a single woman, I know I have it pretty easy - when I want to make something, I have the time. When the mood strikes, I craft. I don't know how all of you with husbands and children juggle crafts and a household. I am always amazed to meet women who manage to do both so well.

Oh and while you are there, subscribe to her feed - you won't regret it. Her posts help organize and prioritize your crafting and your thoughts.

Good night and pleasant quilting dreams to all!
