new flickr group and a little giveaway

Just a quick little post today… A few people have suggested I start a Flickr group where you all could post projects you might have made from my tutorials or quilts that may have been inspired by any I’ve made. I’ve been hesitant to start it (mainly just a bit embarrassed about starting a Flickr group about my own projects!), but finally decided to go for it. I hope you’ll consider joining, and/or adding a few images if you’ve made something inspired by anything you’ve seen here. I’m thinking it might also be a good place for people to ask questions too, so please feel free to use the discussion part of the Flickr group for any questions. You can find the group here. Go take a look if you have a chance – there are already some great photos there!

fabric-scraps

And to kick it off, how about a little giveaway? I’ve put together a selection of fabric scraps – they’d be perfect for some improv blocks, or for strips for a string quilt, or maybe for some rings for a fabric chain? Whatever you want, really. There’s some Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry, even a little Flea Market Fancy… hopefully a little something you might like. To enter, head on over to the Flickr group and leave a comment in the discussion. Feel free to introduce yourself if you want, or you can just stop in to say hi. Or perhaps you’d like to suggest a tutorial you’d like to see? I might be able to be persuaded…

I’ll pick a winner on Monday. Liz (goddessinprogress on Flickr) is our winner!

    How exciting! I’m relatively new to blogging, but love all the sewers/quilters out there. It’s addicting. As for a tutorial, I think any tips on quilting would be awesome, I’m sure you’ve shared some already.

    I’ll definitely join the flickr group. And your scraps look amazingly like….mine! Except for Flea Market Fancy. Would love some of those scraps!

    I’m planning to make cloth napkins using your tutorial after I finish up a few projects I’m in the middle of right now. I’ll have no trouble finding uses for these lovely pieces of fabric. Some would probably wind up in the cloth napkins too.

    and I love looking at Flicker! I don’t use it much yet but I should get into the habit of using it… maybe after exams I’ll check it all out… until then, I’m off to leave messages in your discussion!!! I’d love to win that fabric. You can’t get any of it here in NL!

    You alone have inspired me to take a quilting class. Yep You. I can now see outside the predictable quilting box and I am going to try to channel you at the class. So if your feet or hands start tingling in a week, you will know it is me.

    I have made one of your string quilts, but with black center strips. It turned out very dramatic. I’d like to try another with white and this would be a good starting point.

    Nice giveaway! Do you happen to know the maker of that dark wood print fabric in the front of the picture? I’ve been looking all over for something like that, and haven’t had any luck… I’ve seen lots of other colors, but not a nice dark brown.

    fyi… I love visiting your blog but some change you have made has made my virus protection program classify your blog as a dangerous site. I get a warning to close browser & not reopen the site! You might want to check to be sure this isn’t affecting others as well. I hope you can fix it so I can continue to visit.
