Friday Finds

There's a blog hop going on to win a copy of Crafted Applique by Lara Buccella.  I am sending you to StormyDays blog to begin the hop, as Dana has a full list of sites for the hop,  and the first review.  She has a project made using the technique----which is being kept a big secret, like in mystery by the reviewers.   It's all in good fun,  and Dana deserves a good fabric bombing for not telling!

Mequilter shared a block that is simple and would work well in any border.  I love the simple change that color makes in a 9 patch.

mini quilts from fabric panels: From the blog at Keepsake Quilting.....this post shared 10 ideas for using fabric panels.   This entry is worth a quick look even if you think you aren't interested.  I generally ignore panels but recently succumbed to one filled with butterflies by Moda.  I figured if I did not buy it now, I would regret it later :)

Bursting Buds Table Runner by SameliasMum:  May is spring and this table runner from Samelia's Mum shouts it.  She is sharing a full tutorial and pattern, so stop by and say hello.   And check out her beautiful quilting on this project too!

As always, please visit the original source for pinning.
Enjoy your weekend.  Love on your Mom.  Make someone smile.  Above all, remember how great you are.  Happy stitching.  


  1. You always have the greatest Friday Finds! That twisted ribbon border block is absolutely wonderful! And how I wish Crafted Applique had come out six months ago when I began machine appliqueing five large blocks of acorns and oak leaves. I'm really looking forward to learning more about her method.

  2. Hey, thanks so much for the shout out, it's not going to get you the secret though, LOL.
    I bought a lot of panels when I started free motion quilting, they were great for practice.

  4. Thanks for sharing the blog hop. I surely hope I win a copy of the book.

  5. I agree. The Mequilter pattern would make a stunning border.

  6. Love all these Friday Finds Debbie! Thanks for the shout out by making my book a part of them! Dana's post and her quilt and what she did with it were absolutely amazing! Your comment to her made me laugh - too funny!

  7. I can see a variety of ways to use that 9-patch in a border.
    That runner in the last photo looks like something you might have made--very fresh and pretty!
