Day 6 of 16
Tuesday night, Gina Halladay (of Quilter's Buzz blog fame) called at 10:30 est (yikes!) to say that her server had gone down, and that she couldn't upload her blog, photos, etc. So Gina sent sent me a rag-tag-bag of photos and something that she had written.
Since time is a wasting, and a picture is worth a thousand words...here's some close ups of the fabulously embellished blocks that made up The Fresh Picked Fabrics ladies* quilts:
7 & 8
9 & 10
11 & 12
As you can see, the Fresh Picked ladies share my love of ric rac & other embellishments. I'm especially smitten with the tulle that they used to make a little tutu on the pink and green pinafore...Which block is your favorite? I'd love to know. Best comment on this wins a free dolly dress panel.
Meantime, Gina is planning on kitting their quilt with the all of the ric rac, (out in April '10). Click here to go to Gina's Threaded Pear online store for more info on this kits & their patterns. We'll let you know as soon as Gina's website will be back up & running, & the kitting info will be there.
Till next time...
