RAFFLE QUILT, SOME PROJECTS AND A WIN

I'm supposed to be selling tickets for the raffle quilt for the Cedar Hill Quilters Guild, so I decided to post it on my blog.  The drawing will be November 12, 2012 for this original quilt designed and made by members of my guild.  (I didn't make any blocks).  The large center block is painted on fabric.  Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.  If anyone is interested, please email me - no pressure at all.   Just if you are interested.

I was lucky enough to win a giveaway from Janet at Rogue Quilter.  Look at all the loot I received!  A charm pack, mini quilt, 3 bars of handcrafted soap, and a pincushion.  Thank you so much, Janet!


The mini quilt/mug rug is 7" square!! and hand quilted!

I love the charm pack fabrics, so...

I decided to sew them together right away.  I have made this block before, sometime last year.  It's called the 10 minute block (you can google 10 minute block to see how to do it).  I didn't even have to cut any fabric and I had enough for 8 blocks!  The top is done - I don't know when I'll get it quilted.  The sides of the squares in the middle of each block will be turned in like the cathedral window quilt.  This will be a lovely new Christmas table runner for my table.  The table runner I have been using is quite old, so I think it's time for a new one.

I made a flag placemat for a friends birthday.

These are some cross stitch projects I just finished.  This one will be made into a pillow.

and this one will be the center of a crazy quilt block that I need to make for a guild quilt.

Hope you have a good week!

Great prize! The charm pack is really cute. I like that 10 minute runner you made. What a great pattern.
I will buy tickets for the raffle quilt. (Remind me if you don't hear from me this week. I have been a bit scatter brained lately.

Looks like you've been having fun. That bow tie is one of my favorites.

If the large center block of your raffle quilt is handpainted, what about the blocks that surround it? Some are really interesting. Really curious how you are going to incorporate that cross stitch into a crazy patch. Just "Love" the flag (giggle)!
