WHOOMP There IT Is! #19 - A New Pattern & Progress

Just today I learned I can see how many views, links and clicks I've had for each linky party on InLinkz. Thank you...all you hoppers and linkers from last week! It was my biggest party yet!

Don't forget there's still time to enter Craftsy's Giveaway if you have not already done so!  One entry per person until Sunday, Feb 22nd @ 11:59p MST.

I spent this last week working on a new easy pattern for my pattern store on Craftsy.  It's called Easy Microwave Tortilla Warmer and it's FREE for a limited time! Download your copy today!
I also got the queen size rag quilt all sewn together. WOWZERS! It's huge and it's heavy! It's a custom order on my Etsy Shop.  There's going to be a whole lotta snippin' & clippin' going on for the next several days!  It's made w/a bunch of Thimbleberries and 30s repros.
My customer previously purchased a lap size rag quilt that was backed w/a fabric called Civil War Legacy by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Bros.
She wanted a queen size quilt backed w/the same fabric but I only had about 1/2 yd left. I searched high and low and even called the designer herself. It was at this time I learned the fabric was re-released in the Pine Tree Lodge collection however, she didn't have enough for a queen size quilt. I started searching Google for Pine Tree Lodge and hit pay dirt w/Melinda's Fabric Shop in Hendersonville TN! She had an entire bolt!  The fabric isn't exactly the same, but my customer was thrilled that I found it.  Thanks Melinda!

I've managed to get these 2-bits done on my Arkansas Traveler quilt.  I'm working on this as part of my 2016 UFO Challenge.
That's all I've got for you today folks. Now let's see your progress!

p.s. Giveaway here next week!  Be here or be square!

A Thread for Life
If Jesus gives us a task or assigns us to a difficult season, every ounce of our experience is meant for our instruction and completion if only we'll let Him finish the work. I fear, however, that we are so attention-deficit that we settle for bearable when beauty is just around the corner. ― Beth Moore


  1. Wow! So glad you were able to find that fabric! I've had good luck with also when I was looking for a specific fabric. Can't wait to see how your Arkansas Traveler turns out! Thanks for the link up!

  5. Beautiful fabric Zenia. So nice to see that you are keeping busy making lovely stuff. I wish someone would put me in sewing room lock down.
    My parents keep me on my toes, and running. Hopefully when the warmer temps arrive, they will be out and enjoying fresh air.
    I always love that you share Threads for Life.
