A Teaser, Winners, and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  I have finished up my scrap spiral quilt, and I cannot wait to share it with you.  I have had SO many emails and questions about my process that I figured I should put all of the information into a single post to make things easier to access.  Plus, this quilt just deserves its own dedicated post.  So for today's NTT, you'll have to make do with this teaser of the quilting-

Be on the lookout for a photo-filled post tomorrow, where I'll discuss the process I used to create this quilt, how I overcame some of the challenges that occurred with sewing tons and tons of narrow strips, and why I chose to densely stipple this quilt instead of using a spiral or other design (there is an important reason!).  Until then, I hope this peek has your curiosity piqued (see what I did there?).

Before we get to last week's party highlights, I owe you two giveaway winners.  Comment number 23, momto1, is the winner of the mug rug kit from Shabby Fabrics, and comment number 7, Tammy is the winner of the gift certificate to LouLou's Fabric Shop.  Congrats, ladies!  Unfortunately, I completely forgot to take screenshots of the generator when I chose the winners, so you'll just have to take my word for it  ;) .  Sorry about that!

Now to the highlights!  This pretty Tula string quilt by heARTs Creations-

Look at this beautifully vibrant pillow by Louisa at Sewmotion-

This quilt by Anja Quilts is so much fun!

And this sweet little bee by Jayne at Twiggy and Opal makes me happy!

Alrighty then, friends!  Let's do this thing!

5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. I have a feeling that quilt is going to be worth the wait, Kelly. See you tomorrow! :o))

  2. Gosh I love a scrappy quilt and I look forward to seeing your reveal tomorrow :)

  3. Ok, seriously! You are so productive! I eagerly await tomorrow's post! I love that quilt!

  4. Looking forward to seeing your new quilt. It looks really pretty from the sneek photo.

  5. Nice work on your quilt! Totally agree that not every quilt is meant to be spiral-quilted. But those quilts that are spiral-quilted sometimes need more than one spiral! So many options.

  6. I'm looking forward to seeing the quilt. I've done spiral quilting once, and it's not as easy as it looks! LOL. I have another one to do, but it's a small one, so I think it will be a bit easier.

  7. I can't wait to read all about it! I'm sure you have some great tips that will save others from unnecessary headaches!

  8. You're such a tease! :-). You know I'll be back tomorrow with bated breath...

  9. Looking forward to reading all about the quilt. I don't think I could have quilted such thin strips. Well done!


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
