Hope you had a nice weekend. It's very cold here - Bbrrrrrrrr - and about to become colder still. Great cozy quilt weather! Good thing I've got lots of quilts to cuddle under. I'm also feeling a lot better every day. I still have about 10 days to go until I can drive myself around town, and boy, will I ever love that! My family has been great about taking me hither and yon, but I'd still like to get around on my own. I also finished listening to The Help, and loved it. I have a new Nicholas Sparks book to listen to next, called Safe Haven. Hoping to get to that later this week. On to more important stuff......
How about a new contest?
Guess what? Journey 2 of the Prairie Women's Sewing Circle is finally finished!!!! YEAY!! I celebrated all weekend. The covers have been printed and I'm about to take the patterns to the printer. (Have to wait for a ride there.....ugh!) Anyway, I want to celebrate with a contest.
|The Quilting Gathering - Prairie Women's Sewing Circle |
This quilt, called The Quilting Gathering, is one of the new projects in Journey 2. The story is about how quilter's in the nineteenth century made and quilted their quilts. This quilt has a paper piecing template which makes this block turn out picture perfect! Leave me a comment on how you learned to quilt...who taught you, how long have you been quilting, and anything else you'd like to share. What will you win? Well...how about a kit to make this quilt from the same fabrics I used, and the complete pattern set for Journey 2! Comment before midnight Friday ~ January 21st, and I will do the random number thingy to choose a winner. Can't wait to read your quilting stories!
