Web Favs of the Week

I haven’t done web favs in a few weeks – sorry everyone – I had a family emergency a couple weeks ago and we are still recovering from it.  So here we go!

I have finally, officially, joined the QAL craze. I joined the “Across The Sea Modern Quiltalong” – here’s a link to the Flickr GroupEllison Lane Quilts and FairyFace Designs have designed this QAL and are offering some cool prizes to be won by those who finish their quilt!

I am really excited – this quilt can be made using a solid background fabric and a Layer Cake – so I plan on using the “Ready Set Snow” Layer Cake that I won last month from It’s Sew Kiki.  Hopefully this will be a really cute Christmas Quilt that I can give to my God Parents – I have been wanting to make them a quilt for years and I think this is perfect (they are REALLY into Christmas –  I think you can actually see their house from space at night!).

Are there any Brother Lovers local to the Tacoma, WA area?  Have you heard about the Pacific West Quilt Show that is happening the weekend of August 26-28, 2011. I am planning on attending Sunday the 28th, they have a military family special – $10.00 for the whole family and I want to take advantage. There are exhibits, classes you can take and they have a VENDOR MALL – which I am really looking forward to!  I am going to bring my camera and will post pictures the week after the show for all those Brother Lovers that are not local to the area, so you won’t miss out entirely.

I love Linda’s blog. She always has the most interesting and well written posts. She includes fun photo facts – and she must participate in at least 10 different swaps and she runs at least 2 that I know about.  She runs Block Swap Adventures – which both Sunni and I participate in – it is an international swap and has been lots of fun so far. She is also an incredibly gifted quilter.  You really need to take a few minutes and go check out her blog – and if you have the time to make one extra block a month – consider joining Block Swap Adventures with us – it really has been fun!

    My mom and I went to the Portland Sew Expo two years ago and had so much fun! Now that the baby is older I really hope we can go this year.
