Friday Fun Day and the Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

Oh my goodness... My daughter doesn't do pop culture but my son does so now every Friday I hear him in my head singing that stilly Friday song... you know the one. I bet you have an idea of what I am giving away this week... Moroccan Mirage of course!
Go over to Happy Quilting to enter. You might like to say best wishes on Melissa's new baby while you are there she went in yesterday to have the baby ... wasn't it sweet of her to set up the giveaway for you guys before she did. I don't know how she gets it all done with all her adorable children and the designing and everything.

I thought I would show you all a little toy that I haven't mentioned before. One of the ladies in my Modern Quilt Guild is Kacie... she and her husband have developed a super fun quilt designing software that you can use on their website. She doesn't even know that I am posting this I just thought of it this morning :)

It is called Quiltivate

You can go here to check it out. If you are anything like me you can spend hours messing around with it :) Amanda Jean from Crazy Mom Quilts has written some tutorials for you over there as well. Here is a link to the blog that shows the blocks you can choose for the tutorials.

Something super fun happened yesterday. My little blog was visited by none other than the sweet, beautiful, amazing, generous Kate Spain. She left a comment on my post about Terrain being in and the 8 people that commented on that post are getting mini charm packs of Terrain. Talk about exciting. I just love that girl!
Have an amazing Friday everyone!

  3. Wow this is so strange. I was just cruising the internet yesterday looking for a free quilt design program. I do have EQ but it's EQ5 and my budget doesn't allow for the new one. Thank you!

  8. I just love Kate Spains' fabric. I just don't have any room in my budget for new fabric.

    I have never used EQ. So I will check out Amanda's tut before I go to Kacie's sight.

    Thank you so much Jewel.
