Favorites from #30DaysofQuiltDesign

I'm so pleased with our 30 Days of Quilt Design challenge!  It's fabulous to see so much creativity, so many people stretching themselves and sharing their sketches with the world.  And I'm not the only one bringing my designs to life!  Check out this pretty kitty pillow created by Hildyebertzeder  I'm finding that a book full of personal designs provides lots of momentum to my sewing.  I know exactly which design I'm going to dive into next!

We'll be continuing the challenge throughout October.  Want to join in?  Get all the details here.

I received some requests to turn this snowflake into a pattern. I haven't 100% committed, but if time permits before or after baby arrives, I'd love to rise to the challenge.

I can't keep up with all of the designs shared through the challenge, but I do catch quite a few.  Here are a few of my favorites from the past two weeks.  All shared with permission:
