Who doesn't love a great giveaway? Everyone loves a giveaway, and especially a fabric giveaway. So in honor of my blog being 5 days old, and my first blog hop party, I found some fabric to give away.
On March 17th, visit HERE to see the list of all the participating blogs. I have 3 Thimbleberries fat quarters that I will give away. Starting today and ending March 23rd, you can enter my giveaway. I am wondering what fabric manufacturer is your favorite. I personally love Hoffman. Do you have a preference or do you just buy what looks good to you? Comment about your favorite between now and March 23rd, and you are entered. If you do not have a blog id, please add contact information so i can contact you if you win. This is a very "young" blog so I am not expecting a lot of entries, so please enter :P
As for my quilting this week. I have been waiting to send out a quilt for hand quilting. They contacted me this week and they are going to be able to do it next week!! YYIIPPIIEE!! So I got the backing pieced today and it is ready to go now. I am so excited!!
And even more exciting quilting news!! Last week I was into the local quilting shop. The Christmas Crab Quiltery has just moved and I was in checking it out. It is beautiful, and so nicely laid out. While I was there I mentioned that I am saving up for a new sewing machine. She suggested that if I wanted, I could teach a class on beginner paper piecing. I immediately said yes. I have done a lot of paper piecing, and I have taught it thru my guild many times. But the more I thought it over, another thought came into my head. Why not design a pattern?? If I designed a pattern I could sell it thru the store and teach the class to back it up. So I have been playing with that idea all week. I have drafted a couple blocks, and I think I have the one I want. I have re-sized it, re-drafted it and I am now sewing it. Let's all hope it turns out!!
