A question and the giveaway...

Hi Everyone,

This is going to be a short and sweet post.

Question:

Do you know of a charity that takes quilting fabric? If so can you send me the info?

Thanks in advance!

Now the giveaway. This is not an elegant giveaway. I have a ton of fabric I will never use again. I wish I knew a place locally that would take it but I don't. So I didn't fold it nicely and put a bow on it but it is a ton of fabric for free. There are two bundles so two winners will be drawn. All you have to do is tell me which one you like best. Please pick just one.. then I will put the names in seperate lists and draw winners for each.

1. Gobble Gobble by Sandy Gervais... a 1 gallon bag full of strips (for wonky log cabins but think of the spiderwebs etc that could be made) plus yardage... I haven't measured the yardage and I won't but it stacks up high as you can see compared to the gallon bag:


2. Authentic a small bag of large scraps and some yardage. There is a little there of all the fabrics in the line. It is the remnant of a fat quarter pack (some are full pieces that were too girlie for my son's quilt) There is one piece larger than a fat quarter as well. This is pre-washed.


Giveaway ends Thursday night at midnight PDT.

Hi Everyone,

I had a hard October... which put me behind for my commitments in November..which made me too busy to post on this here blog. Everything seems to be evening out here so let's get back to some fun times. Whaddya say?

Sweet sweet Meghan made me this adorable Mug Rug...and it came on my birthday... how perfect is that?

As usual I am going to do a little giveaway this week. I will post about it tomorrow.

In the mean time here are some things I have been up to...

It was Pillow Talk Swap time again and my partner wanted a beachy pillow in Tiffany Blue and Tan with a lot of White. She had a lot of shell pillows in her inspiration photos so I made her this:

PTS 4 All Done

It is 20" and the center is pebbled (a first) around faux trapunto (another first). The rest of the pillow is quilted in a bubble pattern. It was my first snail trail set of blocks as well.

I also was part of the Scrappy Mug Rug Swap here is what I made:
