I'm absolutely scrambling to finish one last skirt here. My flight leaves in 10 hours and, as usual, I'm last minute frantic. Quilt Market is this week and the best part is it's in Portland, my home town. I have to give a presentation on my book in front of dozens of folks and I'm not ready for that either. But, oh well.
I'm happy to take a second to show you some of the stuff I've been up to and give you a chance to win something amazing.
Here is a closeup of the combination of fabrics in my skirt made out of my friend Bari J. Ackerman's gorgeous new Bijoux collection (in stores now!). The colors are so rich and the fabric is incredibly soft, like lawn.
And here is my skirt and Bari's skirt. They are both from patterns in my book The Essential A-Line. Hers is the Contrast Pleat pattern (pg 79) and mine is the Contrast Layer pattern (pg 60). Cute, right?
And look at the great give away Bari is having!
Bijoux has started shipping to stores, so soon you'll be able to add a little bit of her to your life. But right now, this very moment, you can enter to win a giveaway! Bari is giving one lucky winner a bundle of 10 Bijoux fat quarters. This giveaway has a quick turnaround, so be sure to enter right away. You'll have 24 hours to enter, and I'll choose the winner, randomly, on Thursday.
This group of blogs has already had their drawing but please visit them to see their beautiful creations made from Bijoux, and be inspired.
Check out these blogs the rest of the week for more chances to win a gorgeous bundle!
Back with a winner soon and then lots of great pictures from Quilt Market (it's going to be great!).
