100th post giveaway

When I started this blog it was my goal to post once a week. Now after nearly 2 years I have made it to 100 posts! So it must be time for a giveaway. :0) It sure has been a great (almost) 2 years!! Thanks to everyone who has commented and emailed making this whole experience of quilting even more enjoyable. So here it is - it's a kit for making the Schnibbles "Scratch" pattern. If you're interested in making it, leave me a comment before Monday June 28 when I'll draw a winner.

This is what I've been working on this week - I dug out a ufo that had been waiting a long time for some pieced borders and changed the plan. I saw a quilt in the July McCall's quilting magazine with flowers appliqued on a dark brown background and thought it might work for this quilt. It's been a challenge to applique on a dark background - not all the colors from the center of the quilt work on the dark brown. It's fun to applique and it will be a good take along project for summer trips.
What I really want to be working on is some hand quilting but it is REALLY hard to find a 3 hour block of time to baste something. Soon...I hope :0)
Happy Quilting!!!

What a lovely border for your quilt. The dark background is stunning!!

sadie514 said...

Copngatulations on 100 posts! Love your current project - I always fall for an appliqued border next to a pieced centre. Thanks for the chance to win!

Evelyn in Canada said...

Although I don't quilt, I love checking in on you and reading snippets of what's going on in your life. I hope we'll have time to catch up on our camping trip.

Don't enter me in the draw though. I have no idea what a Schnibbles is and my lack of interest in finding out is proof that I'm not yet ready to try my hand at quilting. I'll just admire your work for now.

├ůse said...
