Lori at HumbleQuilts had another quilt along, this time for a replica of an small antique doll quilt. I figured I could squeeze it in between my other priorities, so here it is. I tried to use similar fabrics that were in the original quilt - at least color wise, but of course, mine aren't faded by age. There are four different pinks and four different blues. Lori has made so many gorgeous quilts, so if you haven't checked out her blog, you need to do it now! Especially since she had a show at a quilt shop and displayed a lot of her quilts in her last post.
Here are my basket blocks for January - which I appliqued using a few different prep methods. I'm afraid I might have to go with the spray starch method as it is the easiest to applique down. When I get the February BOM in the mail, I think I'll prep all of them that way and see.
And now, dear friends, I am having a giveaway to celebrate my fourth year of blogging as well as passing 400 posts! Blogging has been such a wonderful experience for me and I can't believe how many friends I have made and how much I have learned from them. My giveaway consists of a pin cushion that I made ( pattern is in the Winter 2011 Primitive Quilts Magazine) and a small bundle of fat quarters (and no, they aren't reproductions). I will also add a few other little goodies.
To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post and on Valentine's Day I will draw. Anyone who doesn't have an email address attached to their comment will be disqualified, so make sure you include your email address.
Good Luck, everyone!
