Give-away on this posting!


Lots to tell, and some pictures to show... First I just finished the NSPQ Cowboy quilt #3. NSPQ is a group out of my church that makes quilts for different groups. I took some fabric that had cowboy applique's that were intended to go on shirts. There was YARDS of this fabric. I chose to cut the appliques up into 4 inch squares and make pieced tops out of them. The first two did not have the vertical stripes in the top. YIKES!! I have enough squares left to make another top, maybe two!





I also finished the fabric weaving for the quilt jacket, and made fabric out of fibers. (I know this has a name, but it escapes me at the moment. ) I really like how the weaving turned out. This was my first attempt at sewing fibers together... I'm not sure what I think about the outcome.




Now for the part you have all been waiting for...


On March 23, it will be our one year anniversary in this house. As that day is Easter, I will draw the winner on March 24. To enter the drawing, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post. I will put each name on a slip of paper, and draw the winner. So what will the lucky winner receive? 4 fat quarters as shown to the right. OK, you see the fabric, very nice don't you think? But what is that, that, thing? It's not a pencil... You are right. That is a porcupine quill. It makes a great stiletto, and it will be included with the fat quarters for the lucky winner!

Your quilts are beautiful. I am glad that we were able to help. My husband is the pro at this stuff, not me. He has to help me with all the extras on the computer. I will send you a message in a little while. Tell me though if this does work.

The fat quarters are great and the porcupine quill is a unique item to see. That would be neat to use. I'll blog about your give-away in my next post. Happy one year in your new home.

Happy one year anniversary in your new home. I heard of your give away from Jeanne so thought I'll give it a try. I used to have two kois for several years... so love your koi banner. The FQs are great, and what an interesting quill! I hope luck will find its way to me this time. ;-)

Hi from Canada (where some of our evil snow is finally melting!) :) Congratulations on your upcoming anniversary, and congrats on finishing up the donation quilt - it's very pretty, and as we know, using up stash makes room for MORE stash ;)

I too heard about your give-away from Jeanne's blog :)

If I were to win....... I probably couldn't have the quill, although I dearly would love it as I have a couple of echidna quills, which aren't as long - so there could be two winners ;-)))))) HAPPY HOUSE ANNIVERSARY

HI, Vicki, and hello fellow quilters. I finally got to your blog! I do not need to win anything--in fact, I have some fabric to give you for your charity quilts. Hope I can visit soon and will bring the fabric with me. I am looking forward to seeing your green quilt, since I just finish a very green one for my grandson. Nancy
