Tuesday Archives #3: Animals & Award Winning Quilts

Welcome!
Val's Quilting Studio

It's a Tuesday linky that rejuvenates your old quilting/sewing posts and offers a place to find focused inspiration!  
It's as easy as 1,2,3.
1. Each Tuesday I'll post two quilting/sewing themes.
2. Search through your quilting archives for old posts to link under the theme.(And/or as  Celine at Espritpatch  did, feel free to create a new post about an older quilt made "pre-blogging time".)
3. Visit a few other quilty friends,  let them know how they have inspired you!

(The linky will be left open for three days each week.) 

 BUT! Before we begin I do have a quick announcement:  
Stop and look over at the upper right hand corner of my sidebar (Right above my picture, then right above my linky button). As requested, you will find the Monthly Tuesday Archives Themes for the present month right there! (Next week's themes: Baby and Barns) Okay now on to today's linky of Animal and Award Winning Quilts.

ANIMAL QUILTS

Search though your archives for anything and everything animals!

As previously posted here, I made this cute dinosaur quilt for our Grandson last summer.
It was quick and easy.  The dinosaur quilting added the perfect finishing touch!





AWARD WINNERS!

Don't be shy! Share your "award" winning quilts with us. I won a Viewer's Choice award for my Oh Happy Day Quilt and I have to admit I was pretty darn excited! LOL!

Annndd don't forget about this:

PS:  Thank you to everyone for your support! If this is your first time by...welcome. If ya get a chance to add my button to your blog and/or linky party list, comment on this post to let me know you did and you'll be entered in a "surprise" fabric give-away! (Give-away winner will be announced Sunday, March 30th)

Happy Archive Rejuvenation!
With smiles,

I really love your award winning quilt. And I've put your button on my blog. Forgot to link up last week, but I'll find something today.

I have your button on the side bar of my blog.
Not sure if my teddy quilts fit the animal theme but they are there.
My award winning quilt will always be on show.
Thanks for making us look at & share what we have done in the past

Your award winning quilt is just wonderful. I love all the bright colors.

So far, I haven't had any quilts that fit the party categories. Maybe I should do more themed quilts, lol! But I have been checking it out every week!

Your quilt is so bright and cheerful! I don't think I have any posts about the quilts that have won awards - I blogged about them before they received their accolades (not much because it's just a local quilt show!) - but I just remembered an animal quilt I can link up! Woohoo!

I blogged about you today Val -- thanks for the great Linky Party! So disappointed that I missed last week's Applique category -- I'll catch it next time around though. Awesome linky idea -- love it... and congrats on your award winning quilt -- I can see why it would be Viewers Choice!... Hugs, Karen

Thanks Val, this is my first time by and first link with you. Its fun to re-visit our old blog posts. Lots of good memories to revisit. Blogging is positive reinforcement showing we have so much to be thankful for along with so much talent out there to be shared. Love your Happy Day quilt.

Alycia said...

Both of your quilts are great. I love the idea of a dinosaur quilt!

Welcome Terry! I too am enjoying taking the time to look back...and I've only been blogging for 10 months...can't imagine how wonderful it feels to those of your who are "veteran" bloggers!!!

Terri said...

Fun linky! I did figure out an animal quilt I'd made, but never have entered anything for an award. I see lots fewer folks in that list, so I'm not alone.
I can see why you won an award for that quilt! So much fun in one place.
Hugs

Terri said...

Hi Terry Johnson, I'm Terri Johnson! What a small world.

I have your linky button on my blog...this week, don't have anything for animals, but next week for babies... I should have something!

Valerie Reynolds said...

Yah...being a scrappy quilter myself...I only entered the fair out of the encouragement of a friend (Gotta love friends like that!)
