Finally! It is my turn for "Bowls with Borders"! I just hope you are not disappointed. I can't believe the amount of creativity everyone has had with this. There were so many fun ones, I"m ready to go back to the sewing room and make more!
And before I forget stop by Regina's web page and thank her for sharing her pattern with us all. And stop by Madame Samm and Carol's blogs and thank them for hosting and organizing this hop!
The first thing I had to decide was what kind of "look" or fabric I wanted to use. Should I go bright and funky? Or use some of my favorite reproduction fabrics? Should put something in my bowls? And how many bowls? Finally I decided to just jump in and start. So I played it safe and used my civil war repro fabrics and decided to just leave the bowls empty since this summer has been just too busy for me! Here it is:
I decided they were pretty cute in my little table top quilt hanger. So since I hadn't made a fall quilt yet for my daughter for her table top hanger I decided to make a bright version for her hanger. I love how the colors turned out in this one for her:
I decided I had to do one more! It is like eating chips - you can't
So nothing too exciting like some of the versions I"ve seen, but I have to say, I had a great time making them! And now that I"ve seen some really cool ones I have a million more ideas and just might go back and make more!
And to reward those who have hung in with me this far I decided to have a surprise drawing! The reward is a surprise, but it will be very quilting related and I"m sure you will love it! All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me: "If you were a bowl, what kind of bowl would you be?" I"ll be drawing in a few days to give everyone a chance and catch up with all the different time zones and countries. Make sure if you don't have a blog to leave an email address where I can contact you if you win. Who knows, there may be some runner up surprises also!
