Just before Market, I had the opportunity to go and visit my dear friend, Karen, who always takes care of me and is my partner in crime at the Utah Quilt shops. I walked thru the front door of Quilt Etc. in Sandy, Utah and what did I see?

Ok, so does this quilt send you into orbit, or what?!

I just went nuts. I had never seen a quilt quite so charming with little creative details and I had not heard of Cori Blunt or Chitter Chatter Designs before. It seems that Cori and her over-the-top mind-blowing quilt designs was a well kept secret in the state of Utah.

No More!

I had to have that pattern and this one:

This one is Cherry Tweet (Queen size) and the one above it is Very Cherry (wallhanging). Don’t you think Cherry Tweet would be a great wedding quilt?

Ok, here’s what I think of Cori Blunt: unbelievably, mind-blowingly talented! Her applique and design work reminds me of the Disney Animation brain-trust. Can you tell that I was mightily impressed by Cori and her quilts?

So not only is she an amazing quilter – she’s a savvy Mom of five kinders and sweet! You’ll find out more about Cori when you listen to the podcast.

Luckily, I was able to meet her at Market, when she had her very first booth:

and here is a quilt that she made of her daughters. No surprise that I love this one too!

What a great way to create a portrait quilt of your children or grandchildren!

Ok, so Cori is also extremely generous…. here’s the giveaway:

There is a giveaway here on my site and one on Cori’s too.

Here are the details: (please READ, don’t SCAN )

Listen to the podcast, then go and visit Cori’s website ChitterChatter Designs and her blog Creativity Among Chaos. Leave a comment for Cori on her blog and then come back to here and leave a comment for me – and tell me what you think is amazing about Cori’s talent.

This is a perfect giveaway for someone who loves applique, hand or my machine method. Which one do you like best?

I will choose the winner on Tuesday night, July 26th and announce on my blog the next day. The winner will have 48 hours to email their mailing address to me. A new winner will be announced if I don’t hear from the winner in time allowed.

I really think you’ll enjoy finding out more about Cori and Chitter Chatter Designs. Enjoy!

  1. I’m not sure if my first comment went thru. So, let me say again, Thank you for introducing me to Cori and her designs.
    I loved her blog and her style! The bluebirds and the nursery rhymes are among my favorites. And the little girl’s fat quarter dress is so sweet.
    Thank you again Annie, I feel as though I know you as a friend.
