Cattails & Clover Charming Thursday Winner

There's only one more edition of Charming Thursday this week, then the grand finale begins on Thanksgiving Day with the most charming giveaway of all: over 1200 KT 5" charm squares - one of every fabric so far! You'll have 2 weeks to comment. What a great Christmas present to yourself! Yesterday, I reintroduced several projects we're now offering as single patterns from previous books or quilt shop exclusive clubs. Today, I have a few more for you - Wildflower Baskets Charm, Pinwheels in my Garden Charm,Twinkling Stars and Flowers by the Cabin. Flowers by the Cabin is a former KT Stash Society favorite.

On traditional log cabin blocks. Twinkling Stars is another KT Stash project. Simple little baskets make good use of a charm pack for a spring wall quilt to brighten up your entry. Pinwheels and a pieced border offer the perfect background for fused and raw edge (heck, on any block!) My Blog by Eleanor Burns « Eleanor Burns – Strip Quilter. My son Orion has been after me for months to start a blog but since I had no idea of what a “blog” was, I was reluctant.

My Blog by Eleanor Burns « Eleanor Burns – Strip Quilter

I saw the movie “Julie & Julia” and finally understood what it meant to “blog”. This is my very first one so please bear with me, I’m not sure what to write about so I may ramble. For so many years my whole life has revolved around quilting and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I love the creative process and figuring out how to make things easier.

It is a real learning experience and I am loving every minute of it. Orion just gave me my calendar for the first part of the new year and I am already overwhelmed! I enjoy staying close to home a lot more these days so I can be with my 2 grandchildren. Guess I better get back to work. Happy quilting, enjoy the ride! Rag Quilts. Here's my first rag quilt I made about 3 years ago.

Rag Quilts

It's made of dusty/muted colored flannel, raw silk and chenille fabric. I like this texture combination, both visually and the way it feels on my lap. It's a bit heavier, but, I like it that way-so cozy in the morning while reading my favorite magazine or book. It just feels good. For a first time quilter, especially teenagers or children, making a rag quilt is a great option. Blackbird Designs - One stitch at a time.
