Next Mirror Ball Dot Installment

So it is week two of the Mirror Ball Blog Hop. This week Jamie Mueller has made iPhone Cases out of this wonderful material...She has picked some of the brightest and perkiest colors for them....I would love to have one of these. 

Please go online and read her post www.jamiemueller.blogspot.com. In each post there will be a chance to win a prize. So go on her site, read her post and register to win a MDB color chart and 5 fat quarters of fabrics.

Next week it is my turn to be the star in the MBD Blog Hop. You will be able to see the piece I made. Now what do you think are the colors I chose for my project...(Hint....I wear the colors all the time and even have glasses with these colors...and no I did not use black.

Mirror Ball Blog Hop has brought me back.

Here I am back to the blog. It has been a hard four months but I feel ready to get back on board with blogging. I have been keeping you updated about my work through posting new work and new products on my Linda Solovic Studio page on facebook. 

But now comes some exciting news. Several months back I was asked to be part of a blog hop. I have never done this before but I was so flattered to be asked. I was contacted by Mark Hordyszynski who is the designer of the Mirror Ball Dot fabric produced by Michael Miller fabrics. The fabric was discontinued several years ago much to the dismay of many quilt makers which included me. I created a wall hanging using the fabric last year and I talked about it here on my blog. It is the post from November 17, 2012.

Exciting news!....The Mirror Ball Dot fabric is back on the market. So to celebrate its arrival, Mark its designer has asked six artists to create an item using the fabric. Each of us will write about our project which will include a tutorial so you can make it. Mark started off the hop on his blog and his project is posted right now. 

Each week a different artist will post their project and tutorial as part as of the Mirror Ball Dot Hop. I am slated to post my project the week of May 5th. At each artist’s posting you will have a chance to to win a Mirror Ball Dot color card and one Fat Quarter of 5 colors of your choosing of Mirror Ball Dot fabric. So you are going to have to hop around to each blog each week so you can win prizes.
