My Blog List
It started out with this Riley Blake solids FQ pack, and a few Riley Blake neon prints that I found online.
Then I used some Triangles on a Roll paper to make the QSTs which I had never tried before, and it worked out great. The directions are printed on the paper.
And it makes it super quick, and precise to sew up and trim.
I have a really really hard time with matching points, (remember the quilt I made my hub that was eventually named Triangle Massacre?) but with the paper, most of them look like this.
Which is great for a point-matching-challenged person like me! :) And although they sell a few of my patterns on their website, and occasionally ask me to try their products, they don't pay me to say this stuff! I just truly love using their papers, b/c perfect points hate me!! lol And with the papers, I can make them look like that green one more often than not! :) There's still the occasional rogue point, b/c that's just me, but it's not stressful anymore. :)
And the really, really fun news is that Pat wants to hang it in her Triangles on a Roll booth in Houston in the fall and I'm so excited! Because I get to go, too! :) EEP!! And if that wasn't enough, she has asked me to be a featured artist in her booth, and come up with new designs using her different products, to show, along with some of the ones I've already made. I need to be pinched..hard. After I pick myself up off the floor. After the smelling salts wake me up! I get to use something I love, to make things I love, and then share them. It doesn't get much better than that. And to look more official and business-like, I made a fun little logo to put on my patterns. He looks like he needs stitches, no? :)
But as exciting as it is, it's also a little scary and intimidating! I don't want to let her down. Yikes! *plunges face back into paper bag to breathe*
It's all super fun though, and I have lots of ideas to work on all summer that will keep me busy, but I will share what I can. :)
In the meantime, Bright Lights Big City is in my Craftsy and Etsy shops.
If anyone gives it a try out there I hope they will share their finish with me! :) There is also a twin option as well showing what it would look like in prints with a light background.
For the giveaway.. The Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks blog hop is coming again, on May 4-8. (It will be here on the 4th.) There will be some good prizes up for grabs! :) But for today, I just got some sample copies in the mail, so if you leave a comment on this post, I will pick a winner on Friday to send a copy to. :)
Thanks for popping in! Happy Colorful Monday!!
Love the Bright Lights Big City quilt. It does look like a skyline. Congrats on being 'shown' in Houston (vendors booths count). I'd love a copy of the magazine. My life gets crazy busy starting that week, and I'll probably miss most blog posts in May (son's wedding).
Love your quilt!!! I love the way you used different quilting motifs on the "buildings"! QST are a major pain...guess I need to find some of those papers!! Congrats on the awesome news - you'll do wonderfully!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win the mag!!!
Your logo is super. Love the quilt. I just discovered paper triangles and they are wonderful. I am a new (old) quilter and all help is appreciated for sure. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Congrats on being chosen for Houston. You will do great. You are so talented. Wish I could be there. Smile you are special.
Congratulations on being invited to be a guest designer. What a fun thing that would be to do (after all of the stress of getting ready for the event!), Love the version on the dark background. The light triangles remind me of the windows that are always lit in most of the buildings you see at night.
I really like your newest quilt and will add it to the many patterns I want to try. ---Really, you all need to stop making so many beautiful patterns! At this rate, I'll never catch up! lol
Congrats on your big news Quilt Market! I've never been, but it's on my bucket list! You'll do great... Just keep smiling and it'll all get done. :)
