Saying Thank You and a Giveaway

I am running a giveaway here and wanted to thank the folks for the generous giveaway items I received over the past few weeks. My giveaway is some Island Batik fabrics, but really, play along – you too can win!

What a generous quilting community!  I received all these things for a tutorial I posted on Quilting Jetgirl and Meadow Mist Design’s  Tips and Tutorials Festival in November.  I encourage you to play along you never know what will happen!

IMG_5027.jpegIsn’t this Olfa rotary cutter gorgeous!  I have been wanting to get an endurance blade and can’t wait to try it.  You can never have enough rotary cutters and boy do I love the quick change option!  When I worked in a quilt store so many people came in with the blade on wrong – wobbly cuts abounded.  This fixes that problem.

IMG_5035.jpegThe batting is terrific.  I have been using a lot more Hobbs as an Island Batik ambassador and really like it.  I can’t wait to try the silk – it will be for a very special project.


How about this fabric?  It’s designed by Sarah J and oh so inviting. There is a selfish me-quilt in this.  I have little pink in my life and the flannel and is just so cozy.  I have some florals I may use on the front – a design to be worked on in 2019.

Then there are the generous pattern donations from Meadow Mist Designs and Honey Bunny and Doll.  And, I also  received a 6 month subscription from Make Modern.  I am feeling totally blessed.

    What a lovely collection of flannels! I will be interested to see how you use the flannel. I have to put the endurance blade on my list as I keep forgetting to pick one up to try.

    You’re going to love the endurance blade! I have had mine in since June, and it’s still cutting well! Those flannels are very pretty; I can’t wait to see what you make with them. Congrats on the win!
