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.
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!
