My friend Kathreen Ricketson kindly invited me to guest post over at Whipup today. Kathreen started Whipup many years ago and for a year and a half or so I contributed weekly to her blog before starting Craft Nectar. Although we have never met because Kathreen lives in Australia and I live in the US, we have cheered each other on over the years, and email each other often. I admire her contribution to the blog world greatly. If you haven’t visited Whipup.net before, you are in for a treat. Whipup has a wealth of links to tutorials of all sorts and there’s a daily dose of crafty inspiration to be had there.
As this is such a special occasion, Bill and I put together a free pattern for a throw quilt for both Craft Nectar and Whipup readers. The pattern, called Window Shopping, uses those large-scale prints that we all love but sometimes find challenging to use. Window Shopping goes together in a snap so I hope it becomes your go-to pattern when you need a last-minute quilt.
FunQuilts has a very limited edition of kits for this quilt so give us a call at (708) 445-1817 if these are fabrics that you can’t live without. Otherwise, I’ll be back in a bit with lots of new posts to get us all through these last couple of months of winter.
