My Day At The Dust Off A Quilt Book Blog Hop

Bea had a great idea for a blog hop...dust of a quilt book we've had for a while and make
something from the book. The hardest part of this was deciding which project to make from
 the gazillion books I have stashed here or there. Since I enjoy designing and sewing applique,
the book I dusted off for a project was "Adorable Animal Applique" by Margie Ullery.

I got the book during a class I took at a Bernina store that was being taught by the cutest lady,
Margie Ullery from  Ribbon Candy Quilt Company. She's funny and very gifted
 in creating applique designs. There's lots of cuteness in this book!

This was the quilt I made at the Bernina class from her pattern, Hoots Hollow.

My Day To Share In The Show Your Wings Blog Hop And Giveaway

It's been an incredible week full of wings, wings, and more wings...I loved it!
I nested in my chair every morning with a cup of tea (but no bird seed) just to take my time
enjoying each and every project. Thank you to all who participated and visited!

I went a little steampunkish with my wing project and had so much fun with it.

The quilting was done by Quilted Works...they did such a great job!

I can't wait to make another steampunk project. It really was enjoyable to make!

New Blog Hop Alert - Be A Diamond

I'm so lucky to have many, many blogger friends who inspire me with all the things they make.
They are my "diamonds" because of all the brightness they add to my life.
This blog hop is for all of you who want to "Be A Diamond" and inspire someone else.

So...what are the rules of  the "Be A Diamond" blog hop?

The blog hop rules are simple:
Make a project with a diamond block on it (samples below.)
It can be a mug rug, pot holder, mini quilt, baby quilt, bag, etc.
Post your project on your assigned day.
Have a giveaway or don't have a giveaway. It's totally optional!
Visit everyone's blog on the list and leave a sweet comment.

Are you in?
Send me an email with the following information:

Your first name
Your email address
Your blog name
Your blog URL

I did a search in my EQ8 for diamond blocks and found several. I hadn't thought of the
square in a square being a diamond, but it is! Here's a few I found:

Jenny has this video of simple diamonds

Denise has this great tutorial of a Diamond in the Square

I hope you'll come hop with me!
