Henry Glass Fabrics Summer Fabric Party. Lantern QAL

 Henry Glass Fabrics http://henryglassfabrics.blogspot.com/ is posting about some of their designers this week, and there are fabric bundles for giveaways each day.  Yesterday the fabric line was  called Here Fishy Fishy.  You will smile when you see the quilt that was made; it is too cute.  And today they are showing the most lovable bears in Bear Hugs.   I won one of their giveaways from July 4th. 

Today I am working on my blocks for the Lantern QAL I joined at Quilty Habit http://www.quiltyhabit.blogspot.com/ (even though I said I wasn't joining any QAL's this year so I could finish UFO's - so much for plans.)  I needed to make something new, easy and different.  These blocks are modern to my thinking, so I'm putting my toe in that pond to see if I like it. All I have so far is the layout;

I'm using up strips from a Ty Pennington Impressions jelly roll.  I'll be working on this between a doctor appointment and a dentist appointment today so we'll see what gets done. 

I made my first fabric postcards and mailed them yesterday to my partner who is in Nova Scotia.  Sheila of Sheila's Quilt World http://sheilasquiltworld.blogspot.com/ posted about the exchange she was planning so I joined in since I wanted to make fabric postcards but held back because it was an unknown venture.  I can't post my cards yet until my partner receives them, but then I'll show what I made.  Post Office I'm counting on you:-)
Janet Wickell at about.com quilting http://quilting.about.com/ has templates for the backs of the cards.

Check out the giveaway at Henry Glass.
 
This weekend is Christmas QAL; hope to meet up with you at Hazel's http://www.hazelsquilts.blogspot.com
 
God Bless.

Oh, great lantern - got mine stitched up last night. Yes, this looks to be a fun project and look forward to your progress. I have my X-mas weekend projects lined up and waiting.

Love your lantern block. It is modern and I'm looking at modern and easy just lately too. Not sure how I will join in QAL this weekend with my visitors but I've been doing some cutting and put a post up already.
