New Pattern on the Bakeshop and a Giveaway!

Two exciting announcements to share! First, I'm thrilled to announce my third pattern is available on the Moda Bakeshop blog. This pattern was created using a new fabric line, Flight, by Janet Clare. The fabric is gorgeous, with deep reds and blues and lovely small scale prints. There are planes, clouds, an awesome diagonal stripe and all sorts of goodness.

My pattern is called "Runway" and it's inspired by the markings on a runway. I particularly enjoyed photographing this quilt. A trip to the Outer Banks coincidentally coincided with the completion of the project, so I took some photos of it at the Wright Brother Memorial in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. What a perfect backdrop!

After peeking at the pattern, I know you'll want some Flight fabric of your very own. I had some pieces leftover, which the awesome folks at Moda kindly allowed me to offer as a giveaway! 

To be entered to win, simply use the Rafflecopter widget below and leave a comment telling me about the best trip you've ever taken or a trip you've been daydreaming about taking. The prize is five fat quarters of Flight fabric in the delicious cream colorway. 

I'll randomly select a winner on July 30. U.S. residents 18 and older only, please.

Selvage Surprise

I can’t say I’m a devotee of this whole selvage craze, but I am tickled by the creativity I’m finding on selvages these days. It’s such a fun little surprise to see something imaginative in place of the traditional color dot. Is there a name for that little circle of color? At any rate, there are so many imaginative variations that give that functional strip a little added joy. Here are some of the more delightful ones I found in my stash.

What's the neatest selvage surprise you've found?
