Quiltalong and EQ7

I can't believe so many wonderful people have visited my blog hoping to win EQ7! I've been visiting so many of your blogs! This quilt blogging world is so rich with kindness, creativity and amazing people! I am so pleased to be a part of that!

A few people that have responded to the contest have had private emails and I have no way of reaching you. I have to have your email if you want to win EQ7 so please make sure you add it to your comment or email me through my profile if you want to keep it private. I really want everyone who enters to have their chance at winning!

As I have been nursing my nasty spring cold the last 4 days I finished piecing my Strawberry Fields quiltalong from Lori at Humble Quilts. Mine is now officially called 'Blueberry Bushes'! I had some leftovers from my charm packs so I added a 1/2" border and then a 2" border of the blue. I used up almost every square inch of that background! I have no idea what I'll use for binding. I'm hoping to start quilting it tomorrow so in a few days I should be finished. I really love it! And finally...

Happy Mother's Day Mom!

I made my Mom a Mothers Day card so I thought I would show and tell. Because I was big on sick and low on creativity, Papercrafts magazine came to the rescue. I used to make so many cards but I haven't been lately. It was fun though and most importantly my Mom loved it!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Ann,
    You may be adding to my to do list again =) I saw the strawberry fields quilt along the other day...loving your blueberry bushes version.

  2. Very cool! I love the blue zig zag!!

  3. I really love your "Blueberry Bushes"!! Gorgeous!!!

    Beautiful card for your Mum!

  4. Your blueberry bushes is lovely! How about a brown for the binding? Little bit like the brown in the 3rd block down on the right row in the picture, maybe a little darker. it would pull all the browns in the quilt together.

  5. Loving the blueberry bushes quilt Ann. I am getting so much inspiration from your postings and now want to make this one along with the Moda geese one.... There are simply not enough hours in a day!!! Love your card as well, glad you are feeling better.
