Extra Extra! Read all about it :)

Last Friday in THIS post I shared that the Fons & Porter Love of Quilting facebook page was gonna feature my work on Sunday!!!!

Well they did… here is what they posted around Noon EST Sunday…

National Craft Month Dedication – Kathi from Port Orange, Florida: “I loved making the “Sunny Side Up Charmer” valance because it used many of my quilting skills, including design. This was inspired by a table runner I found on a blog, but this is my design as I could find no quilted valance ideas anywhere before I made this one.
This valance is made just like a quilt. I used 42 charms with no two alike from the Sunnyside Collection for Kate Spain by Moda and 1 1/2 yards of Moda Gray for the background and backing and hanging sleeve.
This is a fun weekend project. I made mine a mix of machine and hand quilting. I also used all Aurifil thread on this project and love the happy ending!”
Kathi wrote more about this project in her own words here!

With these pictures….Β 

And thanks to my fun times putting this valance together you can check out the how to’s of this quilted valance right here πŸ™‚

Since it’s posting I have helped a few with more explicit directions for making your own custom sized quilted valance.Β  If you are interested in more information please leave a comment.. I always answer them πŸ˜‰

And here is the exciting part for me… It has over 2500 LIKES and over 300 SHARES on facebook!!!

I am in awe that so many would enjoy something I did just for fun πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading and thanks for your support!Β  I won’t let all this attention go to my head! lol

Instead today I plan to finish the slow stitching on Kaydence’s Baby Quilt and maybe even sew on the binding!Β  Yippee πŸ™‚

Linking this post (and a chance at a giveaway of a charm pack like I used in the valance) to Freemotion on the River Linky Tuesday here!

Until my next post…
