Martingale Monday #7

He who does not get fun and enjoyment out of every day…needs to reorganize his life. George Matthew Adams
Martingale Monday #7! Wow the time is flying by and Market is almost here. I have to say I am really looking forward to this Market. I can’t wait to see friends that always come by the booth for some fun and to see what is new! My book is making its debut and I will doing some book signings and demos! Most of all I will have dear friends along to share the fun. The grand plan is for the Silver Thimble Gang is to ROCK THE HOUSE! 
I want to show you another special quilt from my book. The name of the quilt is “Sunnyside”  

Oh how I love thee. This quilt is so cool. The quilt has a teeny secret too. I snuck a tiny bit of non neutral fabric in there. See, there is a gold fabric that appears a couple of times in the quilt. There is a reason for this but you will have to read the book to find out why! (I’m so bad!) Anyway I do like this quilt…a lot. I especially like the setting triangles on the non border…(non border hahaha!)

Here is another project. Woven pillow sham. Those strips are not sewn…they are woven. Remember the paper placemats you made in First grade? Well this is the grown up technique. Fun and fast and super cool. Buttons add some extra pizzazzzzzz. 
How about some prizes this week. Yup we like that. Three winners again this week.

 A signed copy of my book. The signature alone is worth PENNIES!
Also, a $10.00 gift card to iTunes..I would like to keep your feet tapping and humming to the music as you sew. This makes for happy quilts.


I enjoyed your comments so much last week, this week I would love it if you would tell me who, or what inspires you to quilt. Is it a store,  a person, the internet, blogs, books (well duh!), magazines, guilds, workshops? What keeps you fired up (my term for inspired) and wanting to make more projects? Tomorrow I will tell you a little secret about what makes me want to create and sew. Put that comment on this blog and get a chance to win!


Winners announced on Thursday morning prior to my hair appointment.
