There are a few things I’m super excited about and want to share today.
The first being, on August 29, 2016, A Quilted Passion turned a whopping 3 yrs! In some ways it seems like it was just yesterday that I started blogging and in others it seems as if it’s been forever! Regardless, it’s because of my wonderful followers and friends that this blog is still around. In appreciation, I will be doing a giveaway at the end of this post, so stick around.
Something else that has me all kinds of excited is, I met the sweet and talented Katy of Katy Quilts in real life! It turns out her kids live in AZ and one of them is right around the corner from me! We met at Tropical Smoothie, which is a fave of both of ours, and then she came and visited me in my sewing room!
She even brought me a gift! This lovely modern quilt (lower right) made w/fabric dyed by her own hand! Thank you Katy!
I wouldn’t have been so eager for Katy to visit in my home had I not just had new floors installed! But they were! Yep. This happened a couple of weeks ago and I love, love, love them! What do you think? Can you spot my furbabies?
I think now is a good time for the giveaway! I’m giving away the kit to make this stunning modern quilt top.
It consists of the Reflections quilt pattern by Nancy J. Smith, 2 Benartex Jelly Rolls and a 2 yard cut for the borders and binding. It makes a quilt top that measures approximately 56″ x 63″. I’ve also thrown in That Purple Thang and a spool of Essential Vareigated Thread by Connecting Threads; color is Ocean Jewels.
