2 SMALL QUILTS AND A GIVEAWAY!!!

I put aside my quilting for a few days, but plan to finish quilting Gone to Texas within the week.  I wanted to make a couple small table toppers for my Etsy shop.  I love sawtooth stars and have made numerous of these little 4 star runners.


I thought I would try something different on this one.

Right before Christmas I reached my 300th post!  I decided to wait until after Christmas to have my giveaway because of all the busyness of the season, plus we were going on a trip, etc.

I will be giving away these 4 fat quarters of reproduction fabric.  They are some of my favorites!

I will also giveaway this pincushion that I made out of wool and stuffed with crushed walnut shells.  The FQs and the pincushion will go to one lucky winner (the table topper quilts are NOT included).  All you have to do is leave a comment.  At noon on February 29, I will draw.

I have enjoyed blogging and have met so many wonderful friends - some in person and some just over the internet.  I've learned so much from other quilters and I want to thank all of you that have inspired me and left sweet comments.  I'm still amazed when I get a comment from the other side of the world!

So, be sure to leave a comment for the giveaway!

Wow love your pincushion you did super on it. I know I would never work with wool, cause I just can`t collect another fabric, I just stay with the cottons and I have to say CW fabric is one of them...so I have to put my name in.
