Monday a big annoucement by sewcalgal and a new blog hop. Not a lot of bloggers but we have a very special event to share with you. Great giveaways! I will update my blog when the details are out. Stay tuned!

My Daughters Twisted Bargello

I have entered a bargello quilt in Quilt Blogger's Weekly Themed Quilt Contest. There are a several spectacular quilts, and while you're there, please, please, please vote for my quilt, My Daughters Twisted Bargello!!!

For those who love quilt-related fiction books, new author Melinda Evaul has just released book #1 of a fiction series about the struggles and joys of life in rural America. The novels are based on fictional charaters of the town Love Valley, NC. She has a wonderful giveaway for quilters on her Melinda Evaul Blog too...


  1. Great minds think alike. You and entered the same style bargello quilt into the entry. I like your colorway although it's completely different than mine. I enjoyed participating (although I won't win) and looking at all the different styles of bargello quilts submitted into the challenge.

  2. Beautiful bargello. And I'm looking forward to the comingweek. Thanks for the shout out!


  3. I like a good tease, Judy. Looking forward to the event.
