Artisan Cotton Blog Hop - starting Monday




The lovely folks at Windham Fabrics asked me if I would like to participate in a blog hop to show off their Artisan Cottons. Well, a chance to work with a solid shot cotton that I have not yet seen - you know I said sure. Shortly after that, a box arrived with those beautiful fabrics - as with all shot cottons, the actual colours are different and more beautiful in person that what I am able to capture in a photo.


If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen this project developing - I have never made a wonky log cabin quilt so it seemed time to make one. Come back on Wednesday to see the final quilt, assuming I get it quilted today. These fabrics are lovely to work with - a nice quilting cotton weighted shot cotton. They washed up beautifully too.

And I recommend that you can follow the whole blog hop next week, as there will be bundles of these beautiful Artisan Cottons to win as well as a chance to see some beautiful work using them. Here is the schedule:
I'll be quilting today, and trying to come up with a name for my quilt. I hope you are having a lovely weekend too.

Best,


Leanne

I love your blocks! So pretty! I'm a new quilter though and don't know what a shot cotton is?!? Lol. Is it like Kona cotton? I know I'm showing my ignorance a bit but I guess I'll never learn if I don't ask. Thanks!
