My Hop Stop


It's my turn in the spotlight of the

Red, White & Blue Blog Hop!



My thanks to each and every one of you for hopping on in ...

My special thanks to Jane and Madame Samm for all the arranging!!

Everyone who participates in this hop,
 from the quilters, hoppers, and organizers,
you make this event so much fun and 
share such inspiration and encouragement ...

Thank you!

Without further adeiu,

here's my Red, White & Blue ...

The first block I made is a slightly modified version of  a pattern I found  in the
Summer 2010 Quiltmaker's Small Quilts magazing ...
the pattern is called Stars over Texas by Jo Morton ...
and while I really liked the design and idea of her pattern ...
well ... take a look:

The original block was 8x8, stopping at the red border and would have had cornerstones. 
Needless to say, I enlarged the inner block, added the two additional borders and decided to miter all the corners ... thought it looked pretty cool for a 12 1/2 inch block. 
I used Hometown fabric by Sweetwater. 
Think now I'm going to use it for a pillow front because ... well, I like it ... alot :)

So, I had intended to stop with just that block and turn it into a table topper somehow,
then ... I'll be darned, but I got an itch to sew a bit more and dug through my stash,
found some more red, white and blue fabrics and ...



Well, I started with one blue one, found out I cut enough for two, and couldn't make just two so made a third which I believe should be enough for a table runner ... eventually :) :) 
I honestly cant tell you the name of every fabric in those blocks, but the block is from the book Lazy and Lovin' It by Joan Hawley,
 ... LOVE IT!!!

Okay, okay ... any girl with half a brain
 (and I'm not claiming I even have half)
would have stopped there ... and I was GONNA! 

Well ...I'll be danged (again!) BUT
and I blame it all on Lesley over at The Cuddle Quilter 
who just HAD to make a block that I was drooling over
on the very first day of the hop
so much that I had to go out and hunt up the magazine
she used to make the block from
.... which by the way, was from
(yes, my picture in the dictionary  when looking up obsessed quilter!)

So ... I head to my stash again ...
pull out some more red, white and blue fabrics again
and

TaDa!
(this is where the ticker tape, balloons and noisemakers all fly free)





Good grief ... after all that hype, you'd think it'd be a bit more exciting than that, but heck ... what can I say, I guess you had to be on this side of my computer monitor ... sorry for the let down .... :) :) :)
But I really like the block and, I cut some "streamers" from the red fabric and appliqued them onto the white backing and made this banner from the block ... it can be either a wall hanging or a table topper ... 
I think what made Lesley's block so special,
I decided after I finished my block,
was the dark, hand quilting she did around the block itself ...
very cool and one I may have to attempt again ...
I promise less hype next time ;) HA

How about to make up for the wee-let down and lack of ticker tape,
I have a giveaway??? 
Besides, if you've made it all the way down to the end of this post,
you've earned yourself some sort of chance at a reward ...

You game?
 Red, White and Blue themed, even :) 

Okay ... first, I do request that you are a follower of my blog
and let me know in your comment,
second, in your comment, let me know what your
favorite block of the hop has been so far ...
you obviously know mine, I'm interested to read yours.

Oh ... would you like to see what's up for grabs???
hehehehe

How's this:


Yep, two patterns -- one quilt and one table runner --
and ... 
 one Red White & Bold charm pack by Sandy Gervais ...
and ...
at time of publishing this post,
I am finishing up a Red White & Blue Schnibbles pincushion
to include with the giveaway ...

Update:

I finished the pincushion...


.... front and back photos!
If that is enough to tempt you,
Please leave a comment with the above information,
and I'll draw names next Saturday,
July 14th around 8 p.m. Mountain time.
Make sure I have a way to contact you, as
the winner will be contacted via email and posted here.

If you are a no-reply blogger, please include your
email address in your comment.
I've had a few "no-repliers" and I won't
be able to reply to your comments! :(

Now ... I know there are some wonderfully talented quilters yet to visit today,
so I thank you again for stopping by and send you on your way to visit:

and, if by chance you get lost  sidetracked along the way,
just look for Jane's button on any of our blogs:

And you'll get right back on the hopping trail ...

Until next we meet, happy hopping and warm hearted wishes!



Thank you!!

  9. Wendy, Great job. Love all of the blocks and I especially love the patriotic banner. Thanks for participating in the bloghop.

  10. First, I love your wall hanging/table runner! The block is fab and the way you put the strips on looks great. Second, I am a follower, and one of my favorite blocks from the hop is the Fireworks block from Teresa in Music City (A Quilt and A Prayer). Thanks for holding the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Now if I could only find that magazine - loved that block myself.

    Your block evolution was a joy to read and your banner turned out spectacular.

    I have been a devoted follower for quite a while.
    Everyone has done terrific blocks but quite intrigued with Michell's Folk Art Fusion block on July 2nd.

  12. Hiya Wendy!! I'm a new follower on your blog and you sure can feel the excitement in your post. I loved your blocks and as hard as it is to choose just one favoite block at the moment I would have to choose Block 2, applique, called Abloom, designed by Barbara Cherniwchan, of Coach House Designs on The Cuddle Quilter also!! It appeals to my handpiecing side of me and has a super vintage look about it. Thank you for the oppuntunity to win such a wonderful prize.
    Sincerely,
    Tricia

I am a new follower and look forward to many more wonderful reads:-)

  14. Red, white and blue - so crisp and pretty. My favorite block has been the one out of Lazy and Lovin' It by Joan Hawley. I am in love with the blue blocks you made from this pattern.

    I follow your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love your post and your blocks, especially your banner. I am a new follower of your blog. My favorite block so far was Judith from Handmade Treasures' Dresden. It just leapt out at me. It was a hard choice.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wendy I can't believe with no more time than you have that you made several blocks...and a table runner! I love the wavy streamers and I know I'm going to be trying that. :) My favorite block of the hop, so far, would have to be Michelle May's Hearts. I love her style. But I have to add that there have been several I've starred to come back to, including this last one of yours! blessings, marlene

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hi Wendy! Great post. I love your streamer block. I can't decide yet which block on the hop is my fav and there is so much more to come. But Lesley's was super cute. I am a new follower and look forward to seeing your latest projects. Thanks for the great giveaway. Fingers crossed!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Definitely was "let down" with all those beautiful blocks--they were amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi Wendy, love the streamers blowing in the wind. The Hometown fabric have made that a star cushion. Then the wonderful other blocks.
    I have seen so many RWB blocks then went astray on each person's blog to look at more of their wonderful work. But it is the RWB Dresden block which will be joined by others to become a table runner.
    I haven't half a brain I have a numb brain from all the marvellous work which I have seen & the week isn't over.
    And I am not sewing just viewing...EEK...well done.
    I have just become a follower.

  20. Meant to add thanks for the wonderful giveaway my numb brain ... so generous

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm already a happy follower :o)

    So many beautiful blocks so far...too hard to choose a favorite. Love your banner/table topper! Thanks for the sweet giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Pick a favorite? How could I choose just one?! I know which one of yours I like best and it's your first that you plan to make into a pillow. The fabric is fantastic and those mitered corners! I love it. Thanks for the chance in the giveaway. I'm a follower and I can't wait to see what else you put together. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have just become a follower...I love your post.sounds like me..Start out with one. turns into two..and you're off. Love the banner with the streamers...Also--Thank you for sharing the generous giveaway. It is difficult to select a favorite..so many awesome blocks in each quilters unique style. For just a fun block, I would have to say the Exploding Firecracker.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have truly enjoyed all of the blocks but......The one that spoke to me was your banner that looks like a pinwheel from when we were growing up with the streamers trailing downward. It would look great on our summer kitchen porch.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great work, I love your blocks! I, too, have become a follower! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow, all your blocks are wonderful! very creative. All the blocks from the hop have been great but I am bias to the one quiltingfiesta made.
    Thank you for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  27. New follower :) I think I have to agree with you on fave block so far but several of them are on my to do list. Lucky for me I have that mag too! Thanks for the giveaway chance, great to hop with you!

    ReplyDelete
  28. uhhh fun give away! I'd love to win something

    ReplyDelete
  29. Your blocks are so neat and creative! I am a follower and have to agree that Lesley's block is just awesome, love the wall hanging you made!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am a new follower. I liked Tubakk's block the red and white disappearing four patch. I obsessively spent an hour or two on the internet looking at various versions and tutorials. My second favorite was the web block after it was all assembled on Quilt Taffy. I like rather straightforward geometrics and I just found out how much I like red with white!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Really like all of your blocks but the very last wall hanging really stands out. I just became a follower and Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Your blocks are great...of course..... but today, I'd choose the block from A Passion For Applique, just because I'm impressed by applique. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I seriously can't choose a favorite, it changes from blog to blog and day to day, LOL. I am a follower! I bought some of the Red, White & Bold when I first started quilting and have been saving it for something special. Well I found a project I wanted to do with it and discovered that I will need more of it and not a single piece had a printed selvage!! I have been searching high and low for the name of it...SO, Thanks so much for the name! I feel like I have already won, LOL!! P.S. If you have any more pieces, scraps, yardage I would be happy to buy/beg/steal/trade for them!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love all your blocks and your spirit!!!! I am a new follower and a brand new quilter!!!! Favorite Block!!!! Gee!!!! Gee!!!! They are all terrific!!!! But quilt taffys red stars just really pop!!!! THanks

    ReplyDelete
  35. Your blocks are really beautiful and I love the banner in RW&B. I loved that block when I saw it too.

    I am a new follower and I agree that the Quiltmaker 100 blocks books are the best source for creativity in quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Don't you just love blog hops - so many new blogs to discover with way to many new ideas to put on my 'want to' list. I am now a follower and agree with you on my favorite block so far but also like the dresden block I saw earlier. I do love your blue Lazy Angle blocks. Really like how you used the mini dot with it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am already a follower. You have been doing a lot of sewing with your red, white, and blue. The blocks all look wonderful and I love how you added to the one to create the wall hanging. That looks awesome.

    As far as what my favorite has been so far, it would have to be Block #2 from The Recipe Bunny. I love that block and she had enough requests that she's now done a tutorial to show how to make that one. YAY.

    just to be sure you have it:

    Thank you for such a wonderful post and awesome giveaway as well.

  38. OHHH my goodness Wendy...each project better than the last...and of course Lesley's block well both were/are superb...I think you may have made it to top 2 lol...
    looks terrific as an outdoor piece...

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wendy, great blocks. I love how you turned the Pinwheel into a banner. I thought that block was great. But I also like the firecracker that is shown over at krislovesfabric. Thanks for the great post and give away. Oh, I am a follower.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Fantastic blocks, Wendy! I know exactly what you mean by being unable to stop at just one block. ;o) Love how you took the block Lesley shared (which is gorgeous on its own) and upped the ante by adding those wavy streamers. Wow!

    Thanks so much for sharing so much inspiration!

    ReplyDelete

I like the 3 paper pieced blocks I made, too! I'll go with your block! thanks for sharing and for the chance to win! You are VERY generous!

  51. Your blocks look great! You certainly aren't the first to get carried away and make more than one block. Look at how much inspiration this hop is giving us! I like Hometown as a fabric choice for your 1st block. The banner your made for your 3rd looks wonderful hanging outside. It's so hard to pick just one when I've saved many to make in the future, but I do love Lilypadquilting's block for its 3D uniqueness. http://pinterest.com/pin/262123640782471447/
    Thanks for a chance at your fabulous giveaway. I'm a follower :-)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I do love your pinwheel flag banner. There have been so many fabulous blocks on this blog hop it would be difficult to choose one favorite. I have to admit that the triple Dresden plate block that I made for the blog hop was probably my favorite block that I have made so far. I was rather pleased with myself when it was finished.

  81. Hi Wendy: I'm a new follower! I love your wavy streamers and have got to go back and see how you did those. That's a really nice wall hanging. Lots of pizzazz, I think. So, if those wavy streamers count as a block, that's what I've seen, so far, that really has my attention. Thanks for letting us visit.

    ReplyDelete
  82. First off I must say that I'm totally loving the Happy Bunny Dance! Gotta have it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  105. You know, I have stopped at every blog every day on the shop hop so far. I have seen some I have loved. I have seen some that have made me say "yeah, not so much" (just being honest... not yours of course!) but to go back through them all and pinpoint my favourite... nope!! Love the blocks though and thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I love your lazy angle block-so fun looking and your wall hanging turned out great. What a nice piece to hang outside for the 4th of July to celebrate your holiday. I am a new follower of your blog and have added your name to my blog list.
    Thanks for participating in the blog hop- I have not visited many of the other blogs but will have to go back and check out some of the other posts too.

  107. love all your blocks! It's tough picking a favorite as there are so many good ones. I guess the one that has stood out for me was the Eagle block that was appliqued I think...it was very different. I'm a new follower :)

  108. WoW! You did a super job! I really love your banner/tablerunner. The streamers are such an awesome addition. I'm not sure if I can pick one favorite. There are a bunch I like. I'm blown away at how talented and creative everyone has been. Some things I've seen now in a different way. These hops are so great and inspirational.

    Thank you for such a generous giveaway and a chance to win. Your pincushion is gorgeous! I'm glad I'm a follower and in the running. hehe.

  111. I just started following your blog via google friends. You'll also get links to my blog (I think). I love the block that looks like a flag blowing in the breeze that you have posted but my very favorite so far has been the one on Cherry's Prairie Primitives called Flags Around.

  113. New follower here! ;o) I love them all! Your runner/wall hanging is pretty darn great (of course I am paticular to mine as well!) But I think so far the eagle that was two days ago (I think) has to be my fave by far! The time to applique that beauty!! Just sayin!! But eeryone has done great! I just love to hop!!

  114. I'm a follower. Really enjoyed seeing your rwb creations. One of my favorites is your table runner/wall hanging. It is really cool looking and looks really complex to make. They have been good. But I really like this one.

    I have enjoyed all the blocks so far. I don't think I can pick a favorite, but I'm currently loving the stars, the eagle and the Norwegian ones.

  122. I am a follower of your blog.
    I have seen so many blocks on this hop that they all seem to blur but I really love the red and blue stars that you created. They remind me of a pattern that I used to love drawing and the colours in them are wonderful. I know that they are not red, white and blue on the same block but I really like them.
    Thanks for sharing.

  130. Wow! So wonderful all of it and I have to chuckle that you felt the pull to make your own version of Lesley's block so fast. Your banner/runner is great. Which block is my very favorite so far? That is impossible to pick just one.

  131. Now how did I miss your blog. I remember now seeing your wall hanging on sewwequilt which is simply fabulous! You are having a great giveaway. I will have to say my own block is my favorite even though there are some really great ones out there.
    good luck in my giveaway. I will be picking names this afternoon. I am trying to read and reply to all the comments before I do a new post.

  140. I am a new follower and I must say I wanted to join before I saw the give a way. However it is a really nice bonus! I am a new hopper and I could not possibly choose a favorite block because they are all incredible. So, I will choose my favorite on your page and that will be (drum roll) the Streamer runner. I would love to make one myself.
