So Long, Sewvivor and Share the Love Friday

For those of you that haven't heard . . . I am thrilled to say that I placed 2nd in the Sewvivor competition!  If I'm being completely honest, I am a little disappointed that I didn't place 1st, just because it was SO close I could taste it!  But, seriously 2nd place is WAY further than I thought I would get, so I am grateful!  Thanks for the support and amazing words of encouragement everyone!

1st place went to the talented Nicole of Snip Snippets

and 3rd place went to the talented Amanda of A Crafty Fox

Congrats girls!

Well, now that Sewvivor is over and I have some free time, I have decided to start a new series on the blog called Share the Love Friday.  I just love the online quilting community and how kind and generous everyone is!  So, I would like to share a weeking post to showcase other quilter's/sewist's projects, fabric I'm loving, and maybe some other fun things, like recipes and crafts.  Every Friday, I will share 5-10 photos and links to other blogs of some of the lovely things people have made that week.  So here we go!

I love the clever use of color in this quilt!  It's great for fall, don't you think?

Emily entered this awesome camera quilt in the Sewvivor Sewalong and won!  So cool!

Angie has been killing me all week on Instagram with her in-progress pictures of this cute dresden flower.  LOVE it!

Heather uses a quilt as you go method to make the front of the pillow and I just love her color palette!

Because who doesn't like some bacon?!  Barbie is hosting a Bacon quilt-along and giveaway, so make sure to check out her post for all the details!

I have totally been crushing this week on Jen Baker's new line of fabric Geometric Bliss for Art Gallery Fabric!  You can check out the entire collection on the Art Gallery Fabric website here!

Anyone that knows me, knows that I love to cook!  One of my go-to websites for recipes is Our Best Bites!  I literally use their recipes for 90% of my cooking.  I'm going to be trying these amazing Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars today, so I thought I'd share the recipe with y'all!

And that's a wrap for the first ever Share the Love Friday!  Come back next week for a look at more projects that I've been loving on!
Oh, and I am having a sale over on my Etsy shop!  Use code SEWVIVOR15 for 15% your total purchase through Sunday!  Happy shopping!

  1. Awww dude, you love my flower! Thanks so much for the shout out. I'm sorry I've been a bit MIA since being voted off the island (have been trying to catch up on all the stuff I let slide for Sewvivor - it's been nuts). I'm so glad you made it to the Top 3 (you were one of my votes!). I love this quilt and I don't know how in the heck you managed to do all that piecing under such pressure. It's amazing. Big love!
