Hello Week 8!
(Click on the picture to see who made each mug rug).
Lots of cute mug rugs last week and 34 entries!
The winner of the last $30 gift certificate to Zip It is ::
#5 Sheila, bluepatchquilter
Congratulations Sheila, I loved the sunshine you added to your mug rug!
Thank you Zip It for your generosity in sponsoring three of our project weeks!
This week we tackle the biggest project in the book, the Zakka Block Quilt.
I’m excited to have Michelle from I like Orange sharing her inspiration for us!
She has a great eye for color and I know you’ll love her quilt.
(Peek at her Etsy shop too, she designs gorgeous bag and quilt patterns.)
We have a great giveaway prize for those of you who are ready to tackle this one week challenge.
Even if you’ve never made a quilt before, this is a simple patchwork design that would be great for a first time quilting project. I will give fair warning, quilting is addicting, so this may not be your last quilt!
I’ve put together some resources for a newbie quilter:
- Amy from Diary of a Quilter has a great Quilting 101 series that is very helpful!
- Making a quilt sandwich at Oh Fransson
- Tutorial for spray basting a quilt at Film in the Fridge
- Pin basting with Jeni at In Color Order
- Binding help at Jaybird Quilts
I want you to be successful! You can do it!
Projects that are completed and entered this week will be eligible to win a $75 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop.
Shopping for fabric without having to spend a dime is a heck of a motivator, right?!
You may begin linking up your finished Block Quilt today through Sunday May 27th at 11:59 pm EST for a chance to win the $75 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop!
