Tulip Tiles Block 11 is Posted!

Whooppeeee, I knew I could do it.  This month's BOM installment is posted ON TIME!!  This may just be a first for me.   Check out the page tabs at the top of this blog and click on the tab for the FREE Block of the Month.  It is Block #11 and provides you with instructions for doing the outer 2 borders.

Now, if you are a scaredy cat, you could stop at this point and call it done.  But, if you want to give yourself a bit of a challenge, and have that pretty piped and scalloped border to finish off this quilt, then you will want the next and last installment of this BOM which will be posted in December.

Note:  If you have the Groovin' Piping Hot Binding Tool by Susan K. Cleveland, you will want to find where you stashed it.  If you don't have it, I strongly recommend you purchase it to do the piping around the edge of this quilt.  It really does make piping easy to do.

This past weekend I vended at the Maple Leaf Festival Quilt Show put on by the Baldwin City Quilt Guild.  It was a great show, with some lovely ladies pulling it together. 

Marla Jackson, the featured speaker, has some great work that you really must see!  Her contemporary African American quilts, soft sculptures and art quilts are absolutely stunning.  Here is an example of one of her works which was featured at the show:

You really need to check out her work, her website, and sign up for one of her classes.  She is a really amazing talent and I had a lot of fun getting to know her during the show.

This week in EQClub we will learn to draw a grape wreath.  See my EQ7 tutorial on the EQ tutorial page.  I have had a lot of fun designing this block and a great quilt that features this block.
