Welcome to my home in the desert. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that it is the desert since it is so beautiful and I like to show it off. So when Jen offered a free pattern and Jen and Jan offered to host a blog hop, I jumped at the chance.
Read on to find out how to win some prizes! Jen from A Dream and A Stitch designed the pattern which can be found here just in case you want to make one too. Here’s a pic of the pattern I started with. It went from this……
I like Saguaros so using two for the clothesline posts seemed quite natural. If you missed my post last week about the Saguaros, you can click here to see some pretty awesome pictures and find out where in the world you can find these tall giants.
The 4 inch mini took me a full day of sewing. How ironic that this quilter living in a very obvious desert chose to make a lighthouse and water scene quilt. The itty bitty mini lighthouse block was designed by Janeen of Quilt Art Designs who blogs at quiltartdesigns.blogspot.com.
Visit other quilt bloggers to see their creative interpretation of this pattern and then download it so you can make it too. Let me know if you make one. You will find the list of bloggers below. Oh, and there are prizes too!!!! Check out Jen’s blog A Dream and A Stitch AND Jan’s blog Color Creating and Quilting and leave a comment on BOTH of their blogs to enter. Thank you Jen and Jan for hosting this fun blog hop!
What I Learned Today:
- I am not very neat while I create. In fact, I am very messy.
- I like to dabble in small pieces.
- I need to plan earlier and work harder.
- There’s nothing like a looming deadline to spur me into action or get the creative juices flowing.
Question: Do you hang laundry outside or toss into the dryer?
