Give Away + Quilt Plan

One of the highlights of the Northwest Quilt Expo was being able to visit with Rita...the amazing designer of Reets Rags to Stitches.  I love her designs and her latest Santa pillow is adorable.  Guess what?!  She has donated a kit for this pillow to a reader of the Woolie Blog!!!  All you have to do is leave a comment you are interested on this blog post and please be a follower of Reets Rag to Stitches Blog as a thank you for her generosity! Winner will be announced on Oct. 4.

After seeing all the wonderful quilts at the show I decided to get a bit more organized.  I love all my projects and I have a gazillion in progress.  At Powell's Bookstore I found this dry erase board to use in my quest for the truth.  I mounted it on the door to my stash and project closet.  I am not doing this to make myself barf...but, as a way to acknowledge what is going on in that closet.  I am not sure who is responsible but I'm shining a light on this quilting black hole.  It'll be fun to see if I can meet the goals each month.

Of course Block 3 of the Barn Girl Vintage BoM is my favorite!!!  These blocks are so stinkin' fun...I smile through each construction.  I still have to embroider the legs and move onto Block 4 when I get home.

Yesterday I had an absolutely wonderful time with Sally Frey at her home and shop, Stitch  which she co-owns with Jacque Becker   Will be sharing the good times soon! Check out Quilt Roadies for our visit Plus Stitch will be featured on Anna & G On The Road on October 12th.  In the meantime a look back at Portland :)
