Time for a give away....!

I've been a busy bee, working on some of those projects bins I blogged about a few weeks ago. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful it feels to complete a project. It's the perfect motivation! I mean, I feel full of energy and pep, ready to tackle the next bin. Maybe even start a new project! ;o)

On the finish front, I have been working on The Circuit Rider's Quilt - An Album Honoring a Beloved Minister by Jenifer Dick. It's a needleturn applique class I'm teaching at the Shoppe.

The block is called Album Leaf. There are a couple of variations that I'm presently working on.

I decided to use some of my scraps from the Women of Influence quilt.

I'm not a scrap collector and therefore am always looking to use any left overs as soon as I can.

I really admire people who are able to work with scraps. Unless I can use them within a reasonable time frame in another project, I give them away to a good cause.

This is the Cornerstone Flower.

The leafs and center bulb are fabrics from the newest Judy Rothermel collection, The Civil War Tribute, from Marcus Bros. What a sweet line of fabrics they are. I do plan on incorporating more of that line in future blocks. For the circles, I did use scraps.

I realize that I have not been as diligent about blogging and I do want to apologize. So to make up for my lack, it's time for a give away.

Remember that quilt I finished a while back? You can view it here.

The pattern was called Stars Aligned by Cozy Quilt Designs.

Well, I have a kit prepared for you. The size of the quilt is 53" x 68" (Throw size).

All of the fabrics, except inner border and corner stones, come from the Moda line; Glace by Three Sisters.

The blueish fabric that you see is called Grunge Blue, also a Moda designed by Basic Grey.

There you have, the prize to be given away.

So, leave a comment on this blog entry and you will be entered in the give away.

The dead line is April 10, 2010. Good luck!

Thank you for stopping by and for your patience with my lack of posting. Cheers!

Beautiful job with the applique. I have that book around here somewhere... I would love to enter your giveaway! I think I have a few fabrics around here that would work nicely with those in your kit to make it a little bigger. My DH needs a new couch quilt but he's 6'6".

I was thinking about you the other day and wondering how you are doing. I know you aren't able to post as often, but it seems like you are happily busy!

I hadn't heard of this book you are teaching from for your class. I may have to look into it. My father-in-law is always talking about the circuit rider in his family. I've been meaning to make him a quilt and I think he would like the history behind it.

Teresa said...

Your blocks look great, but then they always do. I enjoy seeing what you are working on, but have not seen a post from your shop in some time. Hope all is going well there.

Love the fabrics in the giveaway - please count me in!

Hi Carole ... I look forward to reading your blog posts. I am not a blogger only a follower. I know how exciting it is to finish a project. I have finished four in the last couple of months ... one is from 10 years ago. Please add my name to your draw. I am coming your way to the Vermont Quilt Festival and hope to meet you at the shop.

Hi Carole,
What a nice thing to do to have such a lovely giveaway. It is so satisfying to get some projects done isn't it?
I am gradually beginning to get something made again- I have begun working on a new convergence quilt - I have stumbled a bit with it and had to rip out as much as I sewed but I think I have it fixed.
Hope you have lots of visitors. It is always nice to see you blogging.
Warmest regards,
Anna
