New Quilts by Laurel blog home!!

I’m participating in the 2016 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop! Part of the lead-up to the actual blog hop itself was the opportunity to participate in small group blog critiques. I participated with Amanda at Gypsy Moon Quilt Co., Amanda at This Mom Quilts and Carol at Carol Lyles Shaw. I received some great feedback and suggestions, which I have incorporated into my new blog at Quilts By Laurel.com!

I’m going to leave all of my old posts up at this old address, but all my new posts will be at the new address. I hope all of my loyal followers will follow me over there! Feel free to let me know if you have any questions. 🙂

In Progress – Bonnie & Camille Barn Quilt Swap

A couple of weeks ago, I signed up for Wifeoferp’s Bonnie & Camille Barn Quilt Swap. I’m not usually one to participate in swaps, but this one combined one of my favorite fabric designers with barn quilts, which I also love, so how could I say no? 😀

After I received my partner’s information, I picked a block and a fabric line – Hello Darling by Bonnie & Camille, of course. I really love this line and I had a fat eighth bundle sitting around pleading for me to do something with it. 😀

I cut and sewed the top today, but I don’t want to post it until my partner receives it, so you just get a sneak peek:

I’m hoping to at least get it basted and start on the quilting tomorrow. I might even get it finished? I guess we’ll see. 🙂
