a traveling quilt update

It’s fun to take a little break from my projects to work on the latest traveling quilt to arrive at my doorstep! This month I had Heather‘s quilt, and it’s one that I’ve loved from the start! She chose to use these great prints from Cloud 9’s Miscellany line, paired with lots of great neutrals, and she made up the pretty herringbone block you see in the upper right corner.

So many great additions have been made, and for a while I just left this up on my design wall as art. I wasn’t in a huge hurry to have it leave my house, but ultimately I thought I should stop holding it hostage and pass it along to its next stop. I added the section on the left – showcasing a few of the prints in those wedges, along with some more patchwork neutrals in between. And then at the end I decided to add a narrow border in cream along the side and bottom to give a little separation for all that patchwork. I hope you like it, Heather!

Also, I want to give a big welcome to my newest sponsor, The Intrepid Thread! Julie carries all the great new collections by your favorites, such as Melody Miller, Heather Ross, Anna Maria Horner, and so many others!

The Intrepid Thread is a family owned and operated business run by owner, Julie Dueck. I particularly love how quickly orders are shipped, and how carefully and nicely they’re packaged! Oh, and Julie can fit up to 9 yards of quilting weight cotton in a Flat Rate Envelope, which always makes me happy!

Julie just arrived home from quilt market and I noticed that she’s holding a pretty sweet giveaway for a bundle of Lizzy House’s upcoming collection. The giveaway ends tonight, so if you haven’t already, head on over here to add your name! I know that I’d love to get my hands on these fabrics before they’re actually available!

    It really is looking great. Love all the neutrals. I gave the Intrepid Thread a shot as I saw them sponsoring bloggers and I was so pleased. I had a question it was answered so speedily. So I ordered and the fabric got to my house so fast and was packaged adorably with a personal note. Really a super shop. Thought I’d throw my two cents in 🙂

    I love this quilt–Heather is so lucky. I’d love to know the way you and your friends do a traveling quilt. Does the eventual owner send fabric? Guidelines?

    I especially like this one because the fabrics are so comfortable together.
