Liz says she didn't have the right shade of brown and neutral, so she overdyed some of the fabrics. She liked the results so much that she also overdyed the selvage blocks! For the sashing, Liz used the back side of the fabric because the color looked better. Wow, she was really thinking out of the box!
And look at that fabulous quilting! Liz says she's inspired by Leah Day's blog for machine quilting ideas. Leah has wonderful close-ups of machine quilting. I'll be visiting that blog again and again.
This is a charity quilt, to be donated through her guild. Wow, someone's in for a real treat!
Nice job, Liz!

I was once a member of the Cumberland Valley Quitter's Association in TN. I was told that the documents were misprinted, and no one ever fixed it. It's a wonderful guild and I miss them.

In volume 1, I contributed a pieced block called "Candlestick," but this time I decided to make a selvage block. I think it will look challenging to newbies, but you selvage quilters will easily see how it goes together.
I like the block on the left in the bottom row. And the block with 4 shoes too. I wonder who designed them. We'll have a giveaway of this magazine when it's available.
Special giveaway coming tomorrow. Guaranteed.

She calls it "A Mazing Abundance" because it's inspired by Ashcombe, an Australian hedge maze, and the fabric line "Simple Abundance" by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. She made this quilt in the Carrie Nelson Chicago Class #3 sponsored by the Prairie Star Quilters Guild.
You'll enjoy Thelma's blog. She tells about her thought process as she chooses fabrics for her quilts. You can also view her awesome red and green log cabin quilt at the Online Quilt Museum. (Scroll down the page to see the photos.)
Come back tomorrow for a give-away! And the day after that, a funny crochet post. (Of course crochet can be hilarious!)
