Kate Colleran and Elizabeth Balderrama are the designers of Seams Like a Dream. I first meet Kate in a Convent... yep.. that's right! It had been turned into a retreat center and we were both teaching there!
Their new book is fabulous and I'm part of the tour! It's called 'Smash Your Precut Stash' and they sent all the tour designers 5 questions to answer..... Ready?
What color do you have the most of in your stash?
It looks like a tie between Blue and Red, although I think I have more Blue because there are some HUGE pieces of red in the red bins.
So today I say BLUE!
Did I mention I'm giving away a copy of their book?
What is your favorite precut to use or what do you have the most of in your stash?
I seem to be in Charm Pack hoarding mode. Regular size, Mini Size, I don't want to part with any of them.... parting means USING them.. not ready..
there are more behind these
And maybe more on another shelf....
What is your favorite pattern in the book?
The COVER quilt!!! I've got all those MINI's and Charms.. PLUS I've never made a quilt like that one where the color is only in little squares. They sparkle like diamonds in that white setting. I'm fascinated by it and would love to make the cover quilt.
writing it on my list.. there.. done... added to my 'need to make' list!
What quilting notion would you like to receive on your birthday? (Elizabeth and I both have April birthdays so we thought that was fun! We got the book as our present!)
I want a new studio space.. haha! I consider that a notion. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Ok .. at a minimum just bumping the room out so it's .. mmm.. double in size.. that would be just great!
Show us a FQ from your stash that you would use in the pattern "My Favorite Fat Quarter Runner."
I would use something RED! My favorite red of the moment is the Red words in my Moda fabric line 'The Sweet Life".
Now for the FUN part, giving away a BOOK!
Leave me a comment by May 6 at 6pm EST telling me...
