Board Game is in the current issue of Quiltmaker!
I am so excited to have a quilt in the September/October 2016 issue of Quiltmaker! I recently got my quilt back and thought it would be fun to post a couple of new photos of it. Sometimes it can be a little tricky to get a photo down by the river with the wind blowing…..I like the way this looks!
I used the Sea Canyon collection from Island Batik. The dark fabric is actually a beautiful burgundy which didn’t photograph very well. It is a very rich color.
You can find Board Game on page 40 of this issue. You can also find a neat quilt in this issue by my friend Bea Lee, she made Ninja Stars which is a AccuQuilt die-friendly pattern.Have you been wondering where I was the last few days?? It was finally time to get the new roof put on over the deck and also to get our whole house re-roofed. That meant our satellite dish was taken down and we had NO internet. Yesterday afternoon it was hooked back up.
I took this photo this morning, it will be a couple weeks before all of the work is done but I have a roof over the deck and……can you see that we had rain this morning…..I was able to sit on my deck, take a picture of my quilt and stay dry! I love it already!
That is our new front door that hopefully will be installed in a couple weeks, then new siding. I couldn’t stand not having a view out the front windows so I cut holes in the Tyveck and taped around them with tape. Now that the roof is on we shouldn’t have to worry about water getting in around the windows until the new siding is put on.
Iggy had to be protected while all the work was going on……can you see how Builder Bob placed a little roof over Iggy so no one would drop a hammer on his head.I did a guest post on Quilty Pleasures for my Board Game quilt in Quiltmaker, I hope you check it out! The Sea Side blog hop with Island Batik ambassadors is going strong, you can find the list of all the ambassador blogs and also my giveaway – remember there are all kinds of giveaways!
On Wednesday, August 24th, the batik collection that will be showcased is Sea Canyon and I will talk a little more about my quilt and…..have a giveaway of the Quiltmaker magazine with Board Game in it and also some of the fabrics I used.
