Blog Tour Day 5: Scrap-Basket Sensations and Then Some

Happy Valentine's Day!
Doesn't it just seems wrong for it to land on a Monday!
Maybe you already celebrated over the weekend? Anyway, I hope you are having a sweet day!

Today is Day 5 of the blog tour of Kim Brackett's book:
Scrap-Basket Sensations! Today your journey is
over to Millie's blog: Millie's Quilting!
I had never met her in blogland before...
But it was fun to hop over and check out her fun blog! I think you will like it...
and you know there is another book being given away... so go leave Millie a comment!
I just want to say that I worked on my Picnic quilt over the weekend... and I can't wait to show it to you tomorrow. You can see a great version of Picnic over at Millie's blog... it's obviously a popular pattern!
She is making hers out of a Batik-mix of fabrics, really fun bright colors!
You already saw Sherri's version of Picnic on day 1 of the blog tour. She is using Central Park fabric! 

I have a little surprise to show you...
this was a secret project for Fat Quarter Shop:


When I finished it- I quickly put it in a box and sent it in the mail to FQS...
without taking a picture of it! *g*
But I saw it today on their website, so I thought it would be ok to show you their picture of the quilt!
It was made from a Schnibbles pattern: Oso.
 I used a Holly Taylor line of fabric that will be coming out in June. 
Fat Quarter Shop will be having kits available for this that you can pre-order!

Now, if only I would have been smart enough to have made this one
of the Le Petite projects coming up! Hmmm.  

Tomorrow is my day for the blog tour! So please come back to visit and enter the book giveaway!

You didn't make that one of the projects? What were you thinking? :-) It's a really pretty quilt. I love the rich fabrics.

I can't wait to see your version of Picnic! See you tomorrow!

I can't wait to see your Picnic Quilt. When I saw Kim's book for the first time with that pretty quilt on the book cover, I had to jump in and make one for myself too. Happy Valentine's Day!

I've never quilted with jelly rolls before, but with all these great patterns, I really need to give it a try. What a treat to find a book with so many good looking patterns in it - usually there are maybe 2 or 3 that really grab your attention and the rest is filler, but not this book! I think I'd like to make at least one of everything!

Beauty! You did a great job on your secret sewing.

Connie said...
