Share What You Love

Last year at this time I received this beautiful quilt from my grandma, made by her mother.  Since then I have been reproducing it with a modern flare.  I have even made it into a pattern to share with others.  I was thrilled to find that while teaching a class recently one of my students is from the town my great grandparents homesteaded in.  And come to find out she is over the historical society there.  She bought my pattern, had me write the history of the quilt and is now sharing it through their museum.  How cool is that!?
Recently I won the traveling stash off of Sarah's blog.  It arrived last week, full of fun treasures.  
I choose these lovely prints to be a back for a quilt I'm working on.

I added these fun prints from my sister, Julie's, line, Smore Love.

If you would like the traveling stash to visit your house so you can share what you love while receiving something others have shared, leave a comment telling me what you are sharing this holiday season.  I'll pick a winner on New Years Day.  Good Luck!

  3. Please exclude me from the travelling stash competition as shipping it across the ocean just seems a bit silly!

  4. I'll be sharing my spaghetti as I feed family and friends.I have also convinced to members of my small church to do the $5 quilt at the local quilt store. It will be red, white and blue. None have ever quilted- at least they have machines! I will be sharing my knowledge thru the year with them. I hope I can be a good shepherd/teacher. Mary Ann

  5. I've been sharing my long arm with a few friends who needed to finish up quilts for Christmas, and I'll be sharing my DVD collection with the young woman who will be house-sitting for us while we're on vacation next week! I think she'd come just for the movies!! Have a merry Christmas, Emily!!

  7. It's a great pattern! So fun to have the museum interested in sharing it! I'm sharing my knowledge of cooking our traditional Christmas Eve baked caramel corn with my youngest daughter.:)
