I am thrilled to be part of a blog hop (my first time!). Teresa, whose blog can be found here, has a new book released, Turnabout Patchwork, which uses traditional blocks in unusual ways. Each person participating in the hop made a quilt from the book. I signed up for the quilt that is on the cover! No pressure there! As you will see when my blog is up (February 1, 2019!), I used different fabrics and made some minor changes to the borders. I love how it turned out, although (as you will learn) I had some challenges due to some fabric issues.
I can give away a pdf copy of the book, and would like to do so to one of my blog readers. Please leave a comment on this page of my blog, or on the February 1 post, and I will pick a winner from the commenters at random. I'll announce the winner after the blog hop closes.
Here is a sneak peak of the fabrics I used to create my version of the quilt.
Here is a sneak peak at the traditional block (a shoofly) before making it over to create the quilt.
Here is a picture of my new helper, Judy, as she oversees my sewing efforts!
