Tuesday’s Talkabout


Tuesday's Talkabout - where we show what were all dabbling, babbling and gabbying in!It’s time for Tuesday’s Talkabout!  But, we need to introduce ourselves – we should have done this sooner!  On the left, my name is Sheanna – I am just a quilter who loves to poke around different quilting blogs – I can learn so much from all you smart quilters! My favorite fabrics are Cottons and Batiks – and I love MINKY!

And on the right, I’m Barb!  I am also a quilter, but my favorite thing to do is just let fabric ‘speak’ to me!  I love to work with wool, flannel and silks!   And, be sure to see below … we want to know your favorite, and there’s a prize to give away!

So, last week we were ‘dark’ .. we didn’t get a chance to post on Tuesday – and we are so sorry!      Yes, because we needed announce our Talkabout Winner – and it was easy with just 5 entries.  All we had to do was put those names into a box .. and voila!  Our winner is goonyburd!    Goonyburd (love the name) is the winner of a $20 Gift Certificate that Teresa gave us to do what we will … and stay tuned, because she’s given us more!

This week’s Talkabout Customer Creation is by Karen!   It’s a Baltimore Brides Wool on Flannel kit that she started with us last year.

What amazes me is that Karen kept up with the BOM!  I’m not so good about that!  I am usually about 4 months behind.  But, this sure inspires me to get another block done.  I’m actually not doing this one, but a similar one that is wool on wool called Antique 1800-1940s .. and I love it!3-Musketeers

And, lets show this weeks Creative Team feature!  So Teresa had this one in her vault.  She didn’t want to display the quilt the ‘usual’ way .. but I think this is ingenious!  This is a quilt from a Patchwork Party several years back.     Yep – and I heard a rumor that she is redesigning the sampler blocks and we will get to have this beautiful quilt available to all!

So, I’ve been poking around some of the blogs that you folks are up to, and this time I’m excited to feature Alice from Future Girl Blog   Now, this gal can knit!  But, what I really love are the Fanged Pumpkins – be sure to scroll down.  Also, drop Alice a note to let her know you were there!

As you can all imagine, things are really hopping at Homespun Hearth these days.  Last night the huge Giveaway ended, and the winners can be found here.  But, it turns out we went from one great Giveaway to ANOTHER!  Yesterday we launched the 11th Annual 12 Days of Quilting!  Another Giveaway, and this one will have 12 Prizes and 12 Winners!  Be sure to hop on over to check it out HERE.

Finally, we want to know YOUR Favorite Fabrics!  This week we have a $15 Voucher to give away — just leave us a comment here with your favorite fabric – and if you want to get detailed, such as letting us know your favorite manufacturer (ie:  Lecien Cottons, or Hoffman Batiks, etc) – that would be awesome!   Next week we’ll announce the winner.

In the mean time, Don’t Miss a Thing!  Be sure to Follow this blog, and click on the icons below to stay connected — so many things happening ALL THE TIME at Homespun Hearth!

  1. I enjoyed reading about the two of you. I love batiks but last year I made a wool quilt and now have a new passion. I live the dimension wool can bring to a quilt. Do you have patterns to recommend that combine wool and silk? I hope to start a new wool project after the Christmas projects and activities are over.

  2. I love the standard quilting cotton. The moda lines are normally my favorite, because I can coordinate multiple lines together so easily. And they have fun “grunge” fabrics. My teenage nieces and nephews think its cool. 🙂

  3. My favorite fabric is a brown Kaffe Fassett–I think it is his Millefiore. I used it to back a quilt, and love it more every time I make the bed. I try to pick up bits of it when I see it online or in shops.

    P.S. Regarding the new giveaway, I believe the Twitter entry still announces the previous giveaway (“$250 + 2 other prizes”).

  4. OH, I am looking for the fabric that turned up about Thanksgiving, a gray background, deer, white trees red birds, what is that fabric, anyone know???

  5. I don’t really have a specific fabric fave but I like the colors gray, gold, white and black together. Thanks for the giveaway.

  6. My favorite fabrics are batiks of any kind – Hoffmann, Timeless Treasures, Island Batiks, etc. Thanks for this great giveaway and the fun pictures!

  7. I love all things fabric. Currently I am working up Moda.jelly rolls: jelly roll race. I am also loving plush bear making. Thank you for the giveaway, and good luck to you all!!

  8. My Favorite thing about the Holidays is spending time with family and having more time to quilt and sew to my heart’s content! Oh and I love the batik fabrics too put in an letter to Santa requesting some new batik fabric!

  9. I really love Giggles by Me and My Sister! It is so cheery I want to put it everywhere! My favorite things about the holiday is the music and atmosphere, like a pretty twinkling tree and Christmas carols! Cheers me up!
