Let me introduce you to Jamie Fingal, whose colorful, whimsical quilts brings smiles! Visit Jamie’s Twisted Sister blog to read her post and enter for the giveaway for a copy of my new DVD from her blog, but I also encourage you to surf in to Jamie Fingal Designs, her website, and take some time to really enjoy her work! Jamie loves bright colors, metal zippers and grommets, funky shoes, the Girl Scouts and, especially, RED!
I was tickled silly when, a few days ago, I surfed in to her blog and learned that Jamie’s first fabric line is about to come out. At long last, I can get me a little Jamie! You better believe I’ll be lobbying my local shop to put in an order!
Jamie supports many great quilt efforts including the Quilt Alliance. She made this quilt for auction, and OH do I WISH I had that ever-elusive winning lottery ticket, because I would have outbid EVERYone for this typewriter quilt, which is one of my favorites of hers!
Jamie also does lots with the Girls Scouts; this quilt is quintessential Jamie-style:
Jamie and her friend Leslie Tucker Jenison are the forces behind Dinner @ 8, which has sponsored exhibits that have debuted at International Quilt Festival in Long Beach and can also be found at IQF Houston and other venues. I was so thrilled when they first invited me to submit a piece for one of their juried invitational exhibits. Leslie will be participating later in this blog, so you’ll have to wait to hear more about her!
So please DO surf over to Jamie’s website and her blog, and enter the Video giveaway on her blog (and be quick, because you only have a day or two to leave a comment!). Thank you, Jamie, for being a part of this bloghop!
