Before I get into today’s post, I need to congratulate Karen P. from North Carolina for winning my mystery fabric box! Thanks to all of you who enter my giveaways – I will be hosting a few more in the fall so be on the lookout! :-)
I have been busy all summer finishing this stack of quilts. It’s been such a pleasure to work on them! Although it will be quite a while before I am ready to reveal them in public, I can truly say I’ve grown as a quilter while creating them. It’s been a little tricky blogging and sharing on Instagram (@christaquilts) when there’s nothing to show, but I’ve been enjoying posting a few little sneaky peeks now and then.
I can show you the backing of another fun finish which will be revealed in the Winter issue of Quilting Quarterly this December. This is the magazine published by the National Quilting Association – a group that has been around for over 45 years. Can you believe it?! Be sure to join NQA to get your quarterly subscription so you don’t miss out on the fun! Here’s a hint: think small!
Finally, here is a WIP that I can show. I’m working on “Abacus,” an easy machine applique project that will be my next Quilt Along! Yay!!! I started it earlier in the year before I got serious with deadlines, and I’m now excited to return to it. I’m finalizing details now, and I plan to launch the quilt along mid to late September.
Who’s excited for the fall quilting season? I know I am!
