The is the quilt I am finishing this week. I am working on the border stitching today. Name Above All Names is an OESD quilt by Krista Hamrick. When I was finished, I had over 60 different colored spools of thread around my machine. The designs are beautiful and the symbols are so appropriate. Each of the symbols represent a letter of the alphabet and are represented by a Bible verse. Everyone who has seen it is awed by it! It will be a special gift. Overbrook Quilt Connection would be glad to get the pattern for you.
Last week's Quilting Gallery Blog Hop was such fun. My give-away was won by Jane in South Carolina. Her box was put in the mail on Wednesday.
This is the first time for me to participate in a Blog Hop Party. This should be a fun week of finding new stitching friends and great projects. This mesh pouch is one I made for a "Quick Project" class at the Overbrook Quilt Connection. I can give you instructions if you ask for them.
My give-away will be a mesh pouch and twelve Moda fat-quarters. Leave me a comment on this post and I will choose someone with the help of a random number generator after noon on November 26. Have fun with the Quilting Gallery's Blog Hop Party!!
This is the mesh zippered pouch that I made as a sample for a short class at the Overbrook Quilt Connection. The embroidered design is from an OESD collection called Steampunk. I used a water-soluble stabilizer, slowed my machine speed, and embroidered on the mesh. Then I just rinsed the mesh with hot water to dissolve the stabilizer. The pouch should not take more than an hour including the embroidery.
These small blocks are part of a quilt titled Name Above All Names. They are part of an OESD collection. We found this collection in a Houston Benina shop. It is going to be very striking. Now to get on with the stitching...
I participated in a mug rug swap through the Quilting Gallery. My partner, Anne, was from Australia. When we started to email each other, I found that she was going to be in Houston for Quilt Market. I was also going to quilt market to demo in a booth at market. So Anne and I met hundreds of miles from each of our homes to see each other and to exchanges our mug rugs. It was so much fun and a very unique experience.
