Quilt Market Finishes and Fat Quarter Shop Winner

It is that time of year again.
I personally have never had the chance to make it there,
but this year a few of my projects will be there for you to view.
And for those of you (like myself)
that will not be in Houston,
Here is a little preview.

I created this computer satchel with several different Therm-o-Web products.
I really enjoy finding fun new ways to play with the iCraft® DECO FOIL™
Gold is really a favorite of mine. 
Next, is my Patriotic America quilt. 

I had a thought of how to create this when I first started quilting,
but I wasn't really great at my new hobby and
 I had no clue how to execute my idea.
I did a mix of hand and machine quilting on this.
I used my favorite!
 Aurifil 12 wt. in Red for the hand stitching around all the squares.
I wished that I would have gotten a close-up before it headed on
it's merry little voyage.
You can see all the Therm-o-Web products I used and some more photos - HERE.
If you are in Houston, check out Booth # 2033. 
I would love to see pictures.
And for the winner of the Fat Quarter Gift Certificate is Tonnia!
Congrats to her.

A Brilliant Cut Blog Hop & Giveaway

 Welcome to the Fat Quarter Shop Brilliant Cut Blog Hop!
What is A Brilliant Cut?
It is this beauty.
As some would say,  a girl's best friend.
There example was done in beautiful  
So rich and gorgeous.
I chose a slightly different color scheme.
 I wasn't quite sure what I had planned for
this mini until I put pieced together
the block.
It was a cinch.
Made piecing the diamond perfection.
I can see using this tool in many other projects
After piecing the diamond,
I fondly recalled a lullaby that
I would sing my babies.

I am sure most of
you can figure out the song.

A Mocking Bird

A Looking Glass

and of course the Billy Goat
or as my husband says "The Old Goat".

It is my Hush Little Baby quilt
with a Brilliant Cut Diamond Ring block
from the Fat Quarter Shop.

The shine for the berry, diamond, mirror and glasses was added by using
iCraft® DECO FOIL™  which you can find here.

EQ Seasons: Row-A-Long The Big Reveal and Giveaways

Today is the big reveal day!
EQ Seasons Row Along
Have been around and check out all the beautiful
rows that are available for free for a short time?
Although summer is my favorite season, for purely selfish reasons (Time Off),
while creating this,
a little saying kept running through my head
Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall
I can't decide which one I love best of all.
So, I decided to make each.
It is my seasons quilt. 
 It is 12 rows,  9 of which are part of the Row-A-Long. 
I threw some different little filler rows in.
(Yes, I am a Rebel.)

It is a over sized twin quilt. 
You can definitely see that pretty little pop of
lime DecoFoil on the Flip Flops.
It really picks up the light.

I used the following rows in my quilt.
A few of them, I had to change up just a little.
I can't leave well enough alone.
It give it just a little more touch of  me - "Crazy".
In order,
