DAY 3--My Turn

 Hello everyone!  Welcome to my blog!  I'm glad you're here, because today is my day to post a project for the Henry Glass Designer's Holiday Project Parade.  I'm Jill of Jillily Studio, and I love to quilt.  I have been busy designing fresh new quilts for about 15 years now.  I have been so blessed to be in this industry and be able to be creative and play with fabric almost every day!

I also have created a few notions that are really catching on.  Appli-Glue
is an archival quality basting glue, watch the video about it here.  And my newest notion, Poke-A-Dots is so new it hasn't even hit the stores yet!  But I sold a ton at Market and they will be shipping soon, so watch for these cute sticky thimbles any time now!  I will have more info about the Poke-A-Dots in the next few weeks.

I have been designing fabrics for Henry Glass for a few years now, and it is about the most fun you could ever have!  Currently I have two fabric lines: "Thistledown" (which is in stores now) and "Elizabeth's Letters" (which will be in stores in January).  I posted about them yesterday, so you can see them on my previous post.   Here's a quilt I was working on using the "Thistledown" line:

Not done yet!  Still doing applique!
A close up of "Daisy Dot" after the quilting
And here's a peek at a quilt which will be coming out in American Patchwork and Quilting in February.  I used Elizabeth's Letters to make "Blackberry Village."
On the design wall--"Blackberry Village"
 I have had several projects featured in American Patchwork and Quilting, and in their calendar.  They are wonderful to work with and the photos and patterns always turn out great.  Watch for "Blackberry Village" early next year.

You can check out all my patterns and projects on my site, (I have 4 new patterns) or at your local quilt shop, or in my book.  Stitched Together is published by Kansas City Star has 13 projects and lots of fun stories and information about quilt retreats.
My Book
Well, let's get on with it!  I have a fun project for you. 
Snowdrift Stockings
 These cute stockings have plenty of room for Santa to fill.  He may even leave you a CANDY CANE. (Important Note: That is my "special word"  which you will want to make note of so you can WIN the Grand Prize.  Remember you need to collect all 17 words to enter at the end.)
These are really easy and you can add as much detail and bling as you like.  Check out that snowy cuff!  And I happen to love snowflakes, so there you go.  You may have noticed that I used some fabrics from the Thistledown line to make these.  The red stocking is lined in green and the green one is lined in red.


I do have KITS available, so if you want one, go here.  Each kit makes 2 stockings and includes all the fabrics and ribbon, but no batting.  Cost $18.00.
The pattern for Snowdrift Stockings can be downloaded  here.

Speaking of snowflakes, we have a family tradition of cutting and hanging new snowflakes every year.  When I married my sweetheart in December, 34 years ago, (wOw--I didn't know I was THAT old!) we had the reception at my home.  We hung a snowflake every 12" of the whole ceiling. It was magical.  So every year we cut and hang paper snowflakes from the ceiling.  We haven't done it yet this year--the cutting party is this weekend, complete with the first (of many) showings of "It's A Wonderful Life", hot cocoa, cookies, and lots of people I love!  Here's a pic of some snowflakes from last year.



 Before I wrap this up, I have a gift give-away.  Sign up as a follower and make a comment on this post.  I will send one lucky winner a fat quarter bundle of Elizabeth's Letters, and someone else a copy of my book!  Now that's great.
But to make it even better, I am doing a separate drawing on my facebook page.  Come be my "friend" on Facebook, and you have another chance to win a fabric bundle with a pattern.
(You see, I just started doing the Facebook thing, and I have no friends.  So I have to bribe you.)  Both contests have until Sunday evening, 12-5-10 to enter.  Good Luck!


Now off you go-- hop over Jacqueline Steve's blog at The Noble Wife.
She is a new designer for Henry Glass Fabrics and she is so generous and sweet.  I'm glad to be getting to know her!  You will love all her designs.

Happy hopping.  Come back often and we will visit!

ankastreasures said...

Cute stocking project! I also really like the new quilt you are working on out of Thistledown. I would like to try your snowflake idea with my nieces and nephews. How do you hang them from the ceiling without ruining the sheetrock? I'm guessing you have learned from experience if you have been doing it for 30 years!

Truffle queen said...

The snowflakes on the ceiling are so magical. Does your whole family help with the cutting and designing of the snowflakes? They are so intricate and detailed.

I have a silly question: how do you attach the snowflakes to the ceiling? Tacks? Tape??

Love the new fabric lines and would love to win one. I am a new fan of yours and bought the citrus salad kit at the show in Midway this fall. I am working on my last block and have loved it! I appreciate the time you took to show me how to applique using your glue, it is sooo easy! Thanks again.
