Share the Love Friday

I feel like there is a lot I want to share with you today!  I was nursing some sickos at my house last week so I didn't have time to post my favorites and now I'm sick (of course).  But I couldn't skip another week with so much YUMMINESS going on in the quilt world right now so let's get this Share the Love Friday started!

Totally LOVE this quilt!  I am really digging all the Native American inspired quilts that people are making right now and this might be my all-time favorite!  Katie's quilt is one of the beautiful entries in this year's Blogger's Quilt Festival.

I really like Heather's color placement and simplistic quilting on this small quilt.  I also love the teal binding she used to finish it up.  Heather's quilt is also entered in the Blogger's Quilt Festival.

Leaded Glass by Tracey of Traceyjay Quilts
I love the way this quilt reminds me of stained glass windows.  This quilt is another entry in the Blogger's Quilt Festival.

For those of you who haven't heard of the Blogger's Quilt Festival, don't feel bad.  I hadn't either until last week.  It sounds really awesome and I wish I had a quilt to enter, but I've kind of been doing some secretive sewing since Sewvivor ended and sure didn't have time to make something quick for this.  Voting starts tomorrow so make sure to go to Amy's Creative Side to check out all the entries before you can vote!  Love the quilting community and love how supportive we can be of each other! 

Cristina's colorful choices and the use of low volume fabrics in this quilt make me want to drop everything and make it right now!

This paper-pieced quilt has such a WOW factor!  This is an original pattern by Diane that can be purchased here.

Each "star" is different, but this one is my favorite.  Stunning!

I have had this pattern by Fig Tree and Co. on my list for about a year and I love Cindy's bright and cheery version.

On to some fabric I've been loving this week:

Fabric is available for pre-order now and is released in November.  LOVE those tigers, but the blues really could be used for any quilt.  

Also available for pre-order and released in November.  I love the feathers and the cute little girls.

I am a sucker for a good floral and I like these a lot!

Any for those of you that love a good sugar cookie or Swig or both:

These sugar cookies are kind of a big deal around here.  Swig is a drink shop that makes specialty sodas plus these amazing, soft, tangy sugar cookies with pink frosting on top.  My husband loves sugar cookies, so he probably visits a Swig once a week.  I tried this recipe and it lives up to its name.  These taste JUST LIKE SWIG SUGAR COOKIES!  If you haven't tried them before, test out this recipe!  It's super yummy!

I also need to share these WIPs that some Instragrammers have been sharing using my Cathedral Window Pocket tutorial!

@vrrigney is using some beautiful Tasha Noel fabrics to make this pocket for her Weekender Bag.

@sweetsueellen is using Miss Kate for her pocket.  Love!

Thanks for sharing your projects with me you guys!  For anyone else that is using my tutorial, please send me your pictures or tag me on Instagram @sewinlovequilting and maybe you'll see your pictures here next week :)

Happy Halloween everyone!
