My 1st Quilt Pattern featured in Stash Builder Box

I’m super excited about my very first original quilt pattern, Straits and Arrows.

Straits and Arrows was designed exclusively for Stash Builder Box.  If you haven’t heard of Stash Builder Box you can read about it by clicking any of the links in this post.

The pattern is already in production for the January Stash Builder Box .  And in fact, you only have a couple more days to order it, until January 14, 2017. Sorry for the short notice!   They will start shipping on January 15, 2017. Thank you Stash Builder Box for letting me be a part of a great cause!

Straits and Arrows is a beginner friendly pattern and finishes at 58″ x 62″.

This is the mock up of it from EQ.

And this is an actual pic of it.  It’s ready for binding and should be finished, finished this weekend.

Here are some versions from my lovely pattern testers.

Thank you All!

WHOOMP There IT Is! #28 – My Motto

Ever since I started quilting almost 5 years ago, housework and chores have been moved to the farthest back burner ever!  My house is not a complete pigsty, but instead of daily/weekly cleaning, it’s become monthly/bimonthly cleaning. No offense to you cleaners, but cleaning is so over rated. So of course ’twas love at first sight when I saw this motto:

With this being said, I actually did laundry and some house cleaning this week.  It is spring after all.

On the sewing front, the Mr. PeePotty belly bands are piling up! This order should be ready to ship by next Friday.

And speaking of next Friday, WHOOMP There It Is! will be on vacation.  I’m not going anywhere, just taking a little break. There is a change coming and I’ll tell you all about it on Friday, May 6th so stay tuned.

Oh! I almost forgot to tell you something! I’m working on my very first quilt pattern! My good friend Greta, of Material Detachment, gave me EQ5 (Electric Quilt) for Christmas.   I attempted to install it on my computer as soon as I got it but quickly got discouraged because it didn’t work like it should have.  I wrote to EQ Support for help on Feb 1 and they replied Feb 2, however it wasn’t until April 15 that I followed their instruction and got it installed.  And let me tell you…it’s AMAZING! I realize the newest version is EQ7, but I’m pretty darn smitten w/EQ5. So now I can say, “why yes, I do EQ”. heheheh.  Another thing to stay tuned for is my quilt pattern!

Thanks for coming back week after week y’all. I really do appreciate you!

Now it’s your turn to Sew & Tell.
