home sweet quilt Blook Tour

Welcome to the home sweet quilt Blook Tour! Our very own talented Jill Finley of Jillily Studio has penned a fabulous new book for Martingale & Co.

We love Jill's fresh style. Her quilts are so very pretty but so gorgeous enough to use in decorating your home. Have you seen Jill's new home and studio? You'll have to check out the photos from her recent open house. You should start here if you haven't seen the photos! We are considering packing our bags and flying out to stay with Jill! Martingale & Co. has some great photos too!

Here are a few of our favorites from the book. The first three quilts would be great to showcase in a little girl's room. The applique is simple yet sophisticated.

Dare we say it? Yes, we are starting to think about making holiday decor. These pillows are easy and simple. You can use holiday colors but still use the pillows long after if you choose the appropriate prints. 

Are you looking for easy gift-giving ideas? These are so darling and quick to whip up as hostess gifts.

We think that the book has a great variety of designs for every quilter. The directions are clear and easy to follow. It almost feels like Jill is sitting right there beside you and guiding you along the way. 

Jill is hosting a grand prize giveaway. It includes her current fabric line, Beyond The Gate, is oh so pretty! The line should be showing up in stores! Run out and buy some of this beautiful line!

She used Beyond The Gate in the pillow and the quilt hanging from the railing. They turned out so wonderfully!

Her giveaway will also include some Aurifil thread! Gorgeous colors in the box that compliment Jill's fabrics.

There are other goodies worth $150! Wow! Make sure that you like our blog! That's part of the entry requirements!

We are going to have our own giveaway! Like our blog and tell us your favorite color to use in quilting. That is, what is your go-to color? One lucky winner will win an e-book copy of home sweet quilt and a fat quarter bundle of Jill's fabric!

Contest ends Monday, October 29 at midnight! Make sure that you come back soon! We are off to Houston for Quilt Market and will be back with photos.

Remember to check out the other blogs for their own giveaways!

QuiltSoup: Quilt Market News, Part I

QuiltSoup designer, Barbara Jones will be in Houston! We spoke to her recently and we begged her for a sneak peek! The photo at the top is all that we could wrangle out of her. For those of you going to Houston, you will have to visit Barb and for the rest, make sure that your local quilt shop owner visits Barb in Houston!

We are excited to announce that Barb is another fabulous Martingale & Co. designer who will be doing a book signing at our booth! Make sure that you come by for your copy. First come, first served for limited quantities!

Speaking of wrangling, Barb participated in a cattle drive last year. We thought that it was awesome and she shared a couple of photos with us. 

Joe Daniels (left) and Charlie is on the right. Joe and his wife Euarda own the land and the ranch. She quilts and they are Barb's friends. This is where they started the drive as they brought the cows off of the mountain.

This is a photo of the bar-D-bar Ranch where the cows live. What an awesome experience!

Come back tomorrow for more news from Barbara!

p.s. We do have a winner for the Vicki Oehlke, Bouquet Splendor. We apologize for the delay in announcement. The winner is Betsy Lewis from Florida! We contacted Betsy and the goods are on their way!
