Welcome to the :
This is one of those days that we have been waiting for!!! I mentioned in August that while I was at retreat in Montana, I had a chance to see the Reclaimed West fabric line that was designed by Judy and Judel for Timeless Treasures. It is FINALLY shipping to stores, and I can finally share the quilt that I made. Plus there are prizes!!! And who doesn't love prizes???
So, first off, welcome to the Blog Hop for the new fabric line -- Reclaimed West. Make sure that you check out the bottom of this post to see all of the other participants, and follow along throughout the week to enter various giveaways on each blog, and the Timeless Treasures Giveaway (details below).
Here's a sneak peak at the entire line......
Can you guess which one is my favorite???? Of course it is the Thistle (i.e. the purple one)....it's a great print, and the color is simply luscious....
As part of the preparation for Market, several of the Certified Instructors and Certified Shops remade existing patterns out of Reclaimed West, while Judy and her team worked on the new patterns. I'm going to introduce a couple of those today. The first one is Prairie Pinwheels, which I pieced in August. This quilt was quilted by Carrie Barone of Lakeside Montana, and the quilt is AMAZING!!! Seriously, it's amazing!!! It's barbed wire!!! This quilt was super easy and super quick to make. It uses a new strip technique that I think will revolutionize the way we look at paper piecing!!!
At Market, Judy released a number of new patterns, including my new favorite - Weathered Windmill. Here it is hanging in the Timeless Treasures Booth at Market.
Stay tuned throughout the week to see the following people, and their impressions on Reclaimed West. Make sure that you enter all the giveaways, using the details at the end of this blog.
