Stamp of Approval.....

We finally got to bring this bright, happy, cheerful quilt out of the back room!  *Stamp of Approval* is the latest quilt that our talented customer, Tonya Alexander, has in the current issue of American Patchwork and Quilting.  She got it back a few weeks ago and is letting us borrow it.  BUT....the magazines hadn't come yet and we didn't want to torment you by putting it out with no pattern =)  Well, today they finally arrived.  I grabbed the quilt, gave it a quick press and up on the wall it went.  Isn't it just super?  And our Tracey quilted it for Tonya, so her name is in the magazine too!  You're going to love the quilting.....This quilt is Tonya's take on a *postage stamp* quilt.  Do you sort your scraps into usable strips or squares?  Well, this one take 1 1/2" squares (strips).  When I saw it, I thought...Kansas Troubles might look really good in this pattern!  Diane thought....batiks might look really good in this pattern!  We're cutting 1 1/2" strips and using up scraps to try it in a couple of different looks.  And....guess what....we have a 1 1/2" die strip cutter for the Accuquilt Studio.  You could even rent it for an hour or so and get all those strips ready to go.  Anyway, you'll have to pop in and take a peek at the quilt.  Congratulations, Tonya and Tracey ~ we are very proud of both of you!

How's your week going?  Brrrrrrr.......huh?  But we cannot complain (too much) given some of the weather happening in other parts of the country.  I have a little over one side of a quilt to bind and I will miss having that over my legs for part of each evening.  Actually, hoping to kit that quilt up tomorrow at the shop.  Hope you have a lovely Friday!  Night all......
