I did it! Goal achieved! Huge thanks to Lisa and Diane for keeping me motivated to finish my Greenhouse quilt and any other phantom quilt alongers out there.
I finished my quilt on Saturday and when we took it out for photos after supper it was very windy. There are actually five people behind the quilt holding it against the wind – my husband, son and three neighbourhood kids who were playing nearby.
I loved the backing so much that I wrapped it around to the front for binding. As you can see I quilted circular flower heads and leaves on vertical lines on the quilt. The Ombré Spectrum wideback is available in our shop.
Prize Winner: The only other person, besides me, to post an assembled quilt top in the #greenhouseqal hashtag was Lisa Taylor so she wins $50 to spend in my shop by default. Congratulations Lisa!
I am thrilled to have my quilt finished and on my bed in time to enjoy for the remainder of the summer and beyond! Thanks for coming by to see my quilt today!
Our much anticipated order of Tula Pink and De La Luna Fabrics have arrived! We have brought in a selection of De La Luna by Tula Pink and Tim Holtz’ Merriment and Materialize. Both are available as half yard cuts and are also bundled together for savings.
All fabrics are available separately or purchase the bundles for a savings of 15%.
I can’t believe I’m saying this but it’s only two months until Halloween! I know, we’re all still enjoying the fabulous summer weather and Halloween is far from our minds. Still, with only two months to go until the big spooky day, if you want to make this amazing Pixelated Skull Quilt you might want to start now. So I’m releasing this free pattern today!
I have created this Pixelated Skull Quilt pattern based on a Perler bead craft that I saw on Pinterest. My pattern offers five quilt sizes and has a colouring page as well as the instructions to make this quilt a reality. I’m offering this pattern as a free PDF download to all my newsletter subscribers so make sure you’re signed up!
Once you complete the sign up process you will receive an email with a link to download this pattern and many more free PDF patterns! If you make the quilt I would love to see it so please tag me on Instagram or Facebook @daydreamsofquilts.
To celebrate reaching the halfway point in the Canadian Summer Quilt along three fabulous Canadian quilt shops have joined us to giveaway four fantastic fabric bundles!
How to enter:
At this point in the quilt along six regular blocks and four bonus blocks have been released for a total of 10 quilt blocks. To enter the halfway point giveaways you need to post a photo of 6 of those 10 blocks in the Instagram hashtag #canadiansummerqal before the next block comes out on July 23rd. If you’ve sewn 8 or 10 and you want to show them all that is fine too but you need a minimum of 6 blocks in your photo.
Any day that Heather Ross fabric arrives at my house is a fantastic day but more so if it’s Christmas fabric! Sugarplum has arrived at Daydreams of Quilts and we are thrilled. My Mom is already texting me that she would like pillow cases for Christmas.
We have all the fabrics except for two bolts that are on back order. (We are missing aqua mice and Nutcracker mice on pink.) I have suspended bundles until we know for sure we are getting those but in the meantime all the fabrics in stock are listed. We also have all the flannels which are so nice on the back of a Christmas quilt in the wintertime.
At long last Flourish fabric has finally arrived! I ordered this in September and it’s three months late but worth the wait!
This is one of those fabric lines that is more beautiful in person than in photos. I am very happy to have it in my shop and after a short Google search, I’m not sure, but we might be the only shop in Canada to have it. (? have you seen it anywhere ?)
I love the big focal print! I definitely want to put that on some bags. I think these will be great in a Greenhouse Quilt too and have had a lap quilt planned with them for quite some time!
We have just heard that Sugarplum and Flourish are shipping to us so we need to make room! Kinder is now on sale more than 40% off at $5.00/half yard. Help us made room and take advantage of this great price! This includes the last of the full collection fat quarter bundles and fat eighth bundles.
It’s the Canada Day long weekend! Hooray! Daydreams of Quilts is having a 15% off sale on our entire website. Use code: CANADAROCKS2018 at checkout. Have a very happy Canada Day! Ends Sunday July 1 at midnight mountain time.
