How are you going with your fabric pulls and working out which blocks you are going to make?
So… in a totally crazy decision, I am going to be doing both patterns with you!
I have finally decided on my fabric pull for the North Stars pattern. I am using Blueberry Park by Karen Lewis for the animals (with a few solids) and the background is going to be Arroyo Essex Linen… with the cutest white dots that look like snow!
I also wanted to tell you all about our first monthly prize for making a block during August! Sharon from Lilabelle Lane Creations is sponsoring this month and is providing FOUR of her wonderful patterns!
- Snuggle Time Baby Quilt (Machine Pieced)
- Peppermint Crossing Quilt (Machine Pieced)
- Pretty Little Things Zipper Pouch Creative Card
- Tenderness Mini Quilt Creative Card
Sharon is the most AWESOME english paper piecing person out there! She has written two books (one soon to be released) and heaps of wonderful patterns. She has even taught me the basics of EPP (and I hate hand sewing!) – so she is a fabulous and patient teacher as well!
Here is what you need to do if you would like to win this prize!
