Designing the Slow Poke baby quilt

I don’t normally do a lot of pattern designing around here, but with Urban Odyssey, I couldn’t resist. Blue, green, teal, and brown is my absolute favorite color combination after all!

Win a Wire Table Stand and Evergreen Header!

This contest is now closed.  Thank you to everyone who participated!  It was my turn in the A Year in Stitches group to design a block, and my month is December. I designed a strippy Quilt-As-You-Go tree for my block, which brings together my love of Christmas trees and “quick & easy” (I know, those of you who know me are stunned it’s not a snowman!). This mini quilt stand we’ve photographed it on is very handy for all the 12” quilt patterns I’ve seen popping up everywhere, including on our A Year in Stitches Group. I adore the little masterpieces we’ve been creating and I hate to put them away after their turn on the Calendar Keeper is over so this allows me another way to display them. Now I can display a block on my calendar and one on my stand. Too bad I can’t win this because I sure could use another one… Keep reading for details on how to win!
