Congrats to our JULY Banner WINNERS,
however before we celebrate them...
let's talk about our June Banner Winners..
I am always sad to say goodbye to our Banner Ladies
in this case Dawn and Susan, Jamie and Laila...
You filled our month with LAVENDER, we felt you,
we saw you, and I heard from many bloggers how much they loved
Lavender, lilac, purple now...YOU created a phenomenon...
a movement from pinks to Lavender...no easy accomplishment..!
Even though I have never been a big fan of this color
you inspired me..I can certainly see myself making one now...
You all spilled sew much love into our unique banner..
Thank you., we will miss you and we hope to see you again!
It gives me great pleasure to salute you OUR JULY BANNER WINNERS
When you see their quilt on the banner on our new blog background tomorrow.
you too will gasp...
It really is beautiful in sew many ways....
Sew to Sharon, Michelle, Jane, Kriszti and Zsuzsi and Shanna....
you are our ladies of RED, WHITE and BLUE..
WHY I chose THEIR quilts out of the 373 quilts that came into my inbox...???
From left to right... and may I add here, it is sewwwwwwwwww difficult
to choose...there were sew many unique ones, I could have designed a
JULY banner many times over... Sew THANK YOU to all who submitted
your quilt photos..YOU continue to inspire me!
Let's take Sharon's heart shape quilt from the moment I saw it...
and she will remember this ...
I wrote to her " get this to our banner selection, please"
and you did.. ( I forgot all about it until I was choosing
photos and then remembered it with fondness)
and I am glad, as many others will
be when they see it full blown...
It is heart felt for me, as anyone who
puts hearts into a quilt has ONE..
That she has !.
Next Michelle's, well oh my...
as soon as I her photos on the Turquoise
rusted truck...I thought..WOW! I want that truck...lol
And BOY do I love her quilt...the colors, the pattern, the piecing,
the quilting...well OH MY OH MY OH MY...
Wait till you see her photo shoot..PERFECTION...
( I wanted sew much to show it here the truck......
but you will to wait till tomorrow)
Next Jane's...first thing I noted, hand quilted,
and the colors, sew bright, her photos on the bush
of floral background, made this one of my favourite
outside pics indeed. The stars...well today, this month
she will be a star..HER quilt reminds me of a vintage
quilt from the 1960's. The colors were what anyone
could duplicate if they had these in their collection..
Something sew familiar about checks, and stars...
something that just brings out a smile....
Next, Kriszti and Zsuszi, although a small piece
it was the perfect size to squeeze into our banner
for that special little touch.. Wait, you'll see!
Indeed heartfelt all the way from Hungary.
Twin sisters at that...I love the simplicity
of their color choices and the blue striped material,
very patriotic... and above our logo to remind
us to open our hearts to our world of quilting friends
Sew pleased to include them both.
Wait and see!
Next Shanna, now this one, again
from the moment it came into my inbox,
I could not forget it...3 colors, and WOW,
what an impact on me it made...I am sure
many will feel the same..you could choose any
2 colors with your white background and it just
screams TASTE...not in as lick the quilt lol
more as in she has bold TASTE as in
design...Yep that is what I meant. lol
Sew again, congratulations for being part of our very special month.
