Meadow Mist Designs News

I have some great news to share with you today!

1.  Blogger's Quilt Festival

My quilt Use Your Illusion was nominated for Viewer's Choice in the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side.  You can go to the Viewer's Choice category and vote for your three favorite quilts. (Thank you so much in advance if if you think mine is one of your favorite three and decide to vote for it!)

My quilts are also in the Small Quilt category (Plus Plus) and Original Design category (Use Your Illusion).


2.  Kona Pineapple Block

My paper pieced quilt block Kona Pineapple was highlighted by Craftsy in their Weekend Warriors: 8 Free Paper Pieced Block Patterns blog post.  The Kona Pineapple pattern has now been downloaded over 2,750 times just this month!  I am blown away by this.


3.  Plus Plus Quilt by Izzy @ Dizzy Quilts

My wonderful quilty friend Izzy has made a super cute quilt using my two-tone version of Plus Plus. I love the colors she used and her pieced back incorporating more plus signs, you can check out more pictures (including the awesome pieced back) over at her blog Dizzy Quilts.


4.  Broken Frames Quilt by Anna @ Fresh Dew Drops

Another quilty friend, Anna, has made such a wonderful lap size version of my pattern Broken Frames using a charm pack of Bartholo-meow's Reef.  I just love the soft colors she used and the wave quilting pattern.  You can see more of her in-progress pics over on her Instagram account @freshdewdrops.


Thanks for taking a look!  If you make anything using Meadow Mist Designs patterns, I would love to see them.  Please add them to the Flickr Group "Meadow Mist Designs" or share them on social media with the hashtag #MeadowMistDesigns.

  4. 2752 times now at least. I love your quilts. I pray that you are a winner in the end. You are a winner even if it's not a popular vote winner, I hope you know that in your heart.
