Pet Project Show #36 and Highlights

Nero's Post and Patch

The Doxie girls and I had a terribly hard time this month picking our favorite link ups. We never cease to be amazed at the talent pool out there in QBL. ('Quilting Blogland'. An acronym coined by Sandra at Musings of a Menopausal Melon and Helen of Midget Gem Quilts.)

Why this beauty above from Nero's Post? Detail and precision abound, and don't you love her fabric mixes? Teje's been posting updates on this quilt, and it's fascinating.

Bambi showed us this Jen Kingwell Gardenvale quilt right at the time I was washing and ironing out my fat quarter bundle of the same. I was so excited to see the possibilities!

Tish's Wonderland

Tish keeps working through the 2015 Aurifil Designer of the Month Challenges, and has made some beautiful pieces. This is one of my favorites so far. Could it be the pink or the quilting?

Touch of Grey

This is Amish with a Twist II, and is proudly finished. Reading deeper into the story of her WIP, Touch of Grey also made some of her own stencils, and used a huge variety of ruler work for the quilting making the post worthy of a second look. Beautiful job!

Heather's Sewing Room

Okay. Heather got me at the words, "Kaffe Fassett Workshop." She has pictures of him standing with her quilt, and I had to give a huge sigh. Lucky you, Heather! Your quilt turned out just gorgeous!

Musings of a Menopausal Melon

Everything about this beauty is perfect, I think. Yes, Sandra made me understand it was from a kit, but Minkee backing and to-die-for quilting made it hers. That scrappy border speaks to me, too.

Craftsy is running a sweet sale on classes and necessities until next week. The link here and buttons in the sidebar will take you to the sewing and quilting areas, but those are just the tip of the iceberg. Do you knit? Have an interest in photography? Paint? They also have classes and materials for all that and more. I've never been able to beat the sale prices there for my Aurifil thread even through a wholesale merchant so you can be sure you're getting a great deal. It's where I buy mine, too!

When you buy a class or anything through Craftsy and use the link here, I receive a small compensation. It offsets my costs, and helps the Doxies and I to bring you fun things here. We thank you!


Now it's your turn to show off your own Pet Project. What's your current obsession, love, or new toy? Link it up with The Pet Project Show and strut your stuff!
