Spiraled Jungle on the Ave. and Other Randomness

The Postcard Quilt Along is well under way! 41 members strong, I see new blocks posted every day! Here's an exotic finish by Ellyn/ellyn's place. Aren't those Hawaiian prints perfect as postcards? Here's Ellyn's post about her mini.

If you are into barn quilts, I added more photos to my flickr album here. We were driving home from Eastern Washington last weekend, and hubby saw this one from the freeway.
After stopping for lunch, we hunted it down, plus a few others on "Washington State's First Barn Quilt Trail" There's actually an online map, if you're ever in the area: Barn Quilts of Kittitas County. There are still some we haven't seen yet, so maybe next time.

Did you hear about the Facing East Quilt Along with CityStitches? It's based on a pattern by Carolyn Friedlander in her new book, Savor Each Stitch (also on Amazon). The book is getting rave reviews, and I am happy to say my copy just arrived!

Finally getting to the title of this post! My Spiraled Jungle quilt made it into Sara Lawson's lookbook for her new fabric line, Jungle Ave.! I know this is SO not about me, but I certainly was tickled by it. What a fun and versatile line.

Oh, and by the way, is it me, or did flickr just get better? I can't even define what the changes are but it sure does seem more user-friendly. I'm glad cuz I miss it being a good place to be.
