Luscious Stars and a Giveaway!'s been quiet around here of the blog lately. I'm not lazy in general, I'm just a lazy blogger.  What can I say, I'd rather be quilting ;)

Summer's almost here and my part-time job at an elementary school will be on hold for a few months which will give me a chance to stay up to date on blogging and all some of my quilting projects. I don't share all of them, but this one I just have to! I told you in my last post that I had a Luscious project underway...I still do. It's not quite done yet, but will be soon! It's almost ready to be quilted!!!

I LOVE this quilt top! The fabrics are Hello Luscious by Basic Grey for Moda with a Moda Essential Dot for the background fabric. The design was inspired by a quilt that a customer and new friend saw on Etsy. She wanted a similar quilt, but with a few changes. I contacted the seller and she said that she didn't have a pattern; she had been inspired by an antique quilt she had seen. She generously gave me permission to play with her design so I did! :) Enter EQ7...I love this software! My daughter helped out and we quickly figured out the design and I just love the results! I'll share more pics when this beauty is all quilted :)

In another previous post I shared a giveaway by Sew Kind of Wonderful for her fantastic Quick-Curve Ruler. Well, Jenny's at it again and I reaaaalllly want to win this one! She's designed a new bag and it is absolutely darling! Best of all, she's going to make a custom one for the winner!!!
