hey friends ~

happy friday folks!  hope you’ve had a great week, and happy first day of spring!!

and to celebrate spring… here’s another idea for y’all using the collage technique!

just take a look at this beauty, a zebra collaged onto a large quilt:

pretty cool, huh.  

ohhh ~ the possibilities!  have you been inspired?  are you sorting out fabrics for floral collage?!

need i say more?  no, not really. except… that i get to quilt this magical quilt… and i’m happy about that… it’s going to be an exciting challenge, as i am going to quilt it on the store’s long arm machine.  my first~ever!  and…. this quilt is going to the local quilt show the end of april!

oh ~ and let me not forget to announce the winner of my brand new pattern “Izaak ~ a Bloomin’ Bighorn Sheep!”

 and it’s autographed ~ lol!

  1. Wow on the zebra Leslie ! My head has been swimming with ideas since YOU started showing this on your blog. Now, to get them out of my head and onto my design wall ! I am getting a lot of foliage cut out so I've begun. Have fun quilting this on a longarm, you'll quilt it spectacularly ! Congratulations to Karen/KaHolly….you're a lucky girl !

  2. Leslie, I am so excited to have been chosen the winner of your give away. Vickie at More Stars in Comanche encouraged me to visit your blog in an email, as she was having such fun creating another of your patterns. The timing is perfect, giving me the chance to shop for fabrics before I head north on my annual migration to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, where there aren't many shopping opportunities. Thank you so, so very much (Brian) for choosing my comment!

  3. The zebra quilt is awesome and totally inspiring!!!! I'm liking the whole collage idea and am thinking that it would be great use of my floral stash!!!!!! BUT, I must finish all my UFO's first!!!!!! LOL!!! Happy first day of Spring (as I sit in lovely more summery temps in southern Texas!!!! Heading back to southeast Minnesota tomorrow.)
    Can't wait to see you stitching!!! I haven't ventured into the "longarm world"….yet!!!!
