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! 

Baltimore Brides by Karen

Baltimore Brides by Karen

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.

Midsummer Christmas Festival

Midsummer Christmas Festival

One of the most beloved holidays is fast approaching, but luckily we have a few months to accomplish some new projects to decorate you or give as a special gift.

Get excited because it will be starting Sunday. We will be adding a whole lot of exclusive kits, patterns and Christmas themed fabrics for those Christmas projects. Teresa and Julie have been hard at work collecting all the right fabrics and stitching up the best patterns. All you have to do is order, sew and enjoy.

Dust off the sewing machine and welcome a Christmas project for the upcoming months ahead.
