New month = new list and a 100th post = Giveaway!

Hi all,

So I have started a new list again, it feels like only yesterday when I did the March list!

img_3571
I have the usual suspects again this month, bees and swaps, the Schnibbles quilt hasn’t moved again, either has the Handmade stitchery.

But I have been working on the Oopsy Daisy table runner -

img_3560
I have one of the stitchery panels finished. I actually could cross something off the list already – the Plume table runner is finished. I haven’t taken photos yet, so I will save that for next time.

I am questioning weather I should commit to doing the Vignette BOM. If you have seen it you will know it is a BIG commitment, about 2 years (at least). My problem is, if I loose focus it is not a design that can easily be made into a smaller quilt, each block is obviously part of something bigger.

And one of my all time favourite designs is calling me! The double wedding ring quilt along, I mean I already have the Marti Michell templates! 

Anyway, it is GIVEAWAY TIME!

I had a hard time deciding what you would like to win. I have settled on 2 prizes!

I am going to share the love and giveaway 5 fat quarters of Melly and Me “Where the wind blows” fabric. It is so pretty! My favourite design is the white dandelions which is the bottom piece.

And for the 2 prize -

Is my “Scrappy raw edge Origins + selvages from my scrap bag” Mug Rug. I hope you like it! It is about 4” x 8 1/2” in size.

So all you have to do is leave a comment! If you are a follower you get to leave a 2nd comment!

I will draw two winners on the 10th of April!

The giveaway is now closed!

Congrats on your 100th post. I'm contemplating doing the Vignette stitching too. I might just buy the mags and then do it when I have the time... oh in about 15 years time :-)

Oooh, I have admired the Melly & Me fabric so it would be fantastic to win it! What a good idea to use up those little bits that you want to use but never know how. Congradulations on your 100th post.

I know what you mean about the Vignette BOM. I saw that and fell in love but could straight away see that I had too much other stuff going on right now to take it on.

Thank you for such a sweet giveaway to celebrate that 100th post -- and starting a new list for April. A double wedding ring quilt is a beautiful quilt -- it was my grandmother's favorite and she made one for each of her EIGHT children. My mother has hers on the bed today. The fabric is lovely in your giveaway -- and the mug rug is cute (I like Origins) thanks for thinking of your readers.
