I have some lovely projects you've made using my designs to show you today, BUT, first of all I want to show off the 4th block from my 'in the process of being stitched' BOM, Daisy Days!
One of things I enjoy doing with my stitchery designs, is to add interesting bits along the way. For this block it was the ruffle along the umbrella edge...
...and the itsy bitsy caterpillar!
Hopefully I'll have all the blocks done by May, and the pattern will follow soon after. This will be a paper pattern with transfers so you won't have to trace the designs onto your blocks. \o/
Would you like to win an Elefantz pattern?!
Patty, from Granma's Treasures, is having a giveaway on her blog, and the prize is one of my paper patterns, 'A Cup of Kindness'...
Drop by her blog HERE to enter, but you'd better be quick!
Last year I shared a free BOM over 10 months, "Promises & Borders". It's been a real blessing to receive photos and stories about how making this quilt, or some of the blocks, has made your lives richer.
For some, quilts were made for friends going through extreme trials, and for others the individual block borders were used to mark weddings, anniversaries, or to frame a favourite quote or Scripture.
Lisa Mortel made some of the blocks the way they were designed...
...and added applique to others.
Making my design your own is exactly what I wanted with "Promises & Borders". You really did that, Lisa, and I love it!
NOTE: Promises & Borders is still FREE to download! Just visit my 'Free Designs' page HERE.
Noela Young is a long time Elefantz follower, and recently she sent me a photo of a present she made a swap partner. It was an Initial swap, and so she used my "Sprinkle Love on Your Heart" design, but added a beautiful S in the heart centre!
Ladies, I love what you've done! Thanks for sharing your photos with us.
The weekend is almost here, and I have a few new designs to play with, so I guess you know what I'll be up to!? I'm sure Mr E and I will squeeze in a few rides on our bike too. \o/
What about you? Is there something special you have planned for this weekend?
