Charm Pack Winner

The winner from this post of the Tamara Kate Charm Pack is Janie M who said “I am always drawn towards blue. Your quilt is simply stunning thank you for the detailed tutorial.” Congratulations Janie! I have sent you an email.

Blue was definitely a popular choice for quilting fabrics in my oh-so-official poll. While aqua and teal have shown up a lot in my fabric collections, blue is not a colour I have used much. That is until the past few months. I hope you will like the next collection to come your way. It’s still in its initial phases (I’m anxiously awaiting my first strike offs any day now), but it definitely features BLUE in many of its playful prints.

Can’t wait to share it with you!

Today Janome Canada is featuring the last of three blog posts I did to walk you through creating the Whatever the Weather Quilt. Day 1 was about quilt layout and picking colours, Day 2 tackled piecing the quilt top and dealing with all those angles (there really aren’t that many) and today, Day 3 talks about how I quilted it.


To wrap things up, I am offering 2 charm packs of all 72 coloured Tamara Kate fabrics I used in the quilt. You can enter on the Janome Canada blogpost for one and right here for the other.


To enter, leave a comment below telling me what colour fabrics are your favourite when you are making a quilt. Entries close next Wednesday, September 28th at 6pm EST. Contest open to Canadian residents only.
