Do you Blog? & Flickr Friday Favorites

Quilt 42 - Etsy 1e

Love this quilt by Alison.   I believe its a version of a quilt from Elizabeth Hartman's first book.  Click on the photo for more info--and Alison, we would love to hear more about the quilt!

    My name is Jamie Lee and I live in California, MD. I will be at the Sept 15 meeting and I'd love to meet up on a field trip to Material Girls in LaPlata.

  2. Hi!! Glad you guys like my quilt! It IS a version of the kitchen window quilt from Elizabeth Hartmans' first book. The fabrics are a mixture of teals, greys, oranges, creams, and yellows - many from birch organics and several featuring cute bicycle prints. I loved making this quilt and love how it turned out.

    And I just went to Material Girls to check it out last weekend and it has a TON of modern fabrics. Best selection I've seen so far in the DC area since the Artful Quilter closed. See you at the August meeting!

  3. Such a great quilt Alison!

    I blog about my projects, share pics, comment about the latest and greatest in the quilting world and I try to blog about 3-4 times a week. But this is brand new blog, I am transferring everything over from Blogger and working on having everything all in one spot. Eileen

  10. I'm Erin (Tenley/Chevy Chase, DC) and I don't blog, but I was wondering if anyone saw the article in City Paper about DC's lack of a fabric store, despite the craft scene here, and the store Bits of Thread and Scrap DC opened to offer salvaged/recycled/upcycled fabrics. I thought it was something in which folks might be interested.

  11. Hi, I'm Melanie in Alexandria, VA and I have a very neglected blog I hope to change that soon.

    Sadly, I won't be at the August meeting as I was at Capital Quilts today. That's a long trip twice in a week! I do look forward to seeing everyone in September!

    By the way, beautiful quilt Allison!
