One lucky winner & one last giveaway [for now]

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

Wow, that was a fun one!  Thank you all for playing.  I really appreciate all of your encouragement with my new patterns.  It was fun to read about how you entertain yourselves while sewing.  Like many of you said, sometimes it's nice to just listen to the hum of the sewing machine while my thoughts go towards anything and everything.  It can be a very reflective time.  But, sometimes it's nice to have a little entertainment.  You guys really like your music and your shows - everything from books on tape to zombie movies (that one cracked me up!)  I personally have been busting through another version of my Sugar and Spice quilt (which has only one block throughout the whole quilt) so I definitely needed my music.  For some reason, I was listening to the kind that makes you want to get up and boogie.  But when I watch TV (usually when my husband is out of town) I like to watch HGTV or my reality shows (that's right, I'm a reality show junkie - shh, don't tell!)

Anyways, we have one lucky winner of last weeks' giveaway.  Do you want to hear who it is?  Will lucky number "40" please stand up! 

#40 Mary Burn said... I usually have the TV on -- quilting episodes or "soap operas".  Thanks for including me.

Congrats Mary!  Send me your info and I'll send the goodies your way! 

So it's been kind of an exciting week.  Moda decided to pick up my patterns for distribution (I am really excited about that) and I got my Candy Hearts quilt done, the tutorial written up and it's scheduled to post on the Moda Bake Shop on March 20th!  Here's a sneak peak of the newest version:

Looks pretty similar to the first one right?  Well it's got a little surprise feature on it so check it out on the Moda Bake Shop March 14th to see what I'm talkin' about! 

So are you wondering what the 3rd giveaway is going to be?  L
et me give you a hint...

It's a wall hanging...

And it's one I made for my house...

And it has a birdhouse on it...

O.K.  you probably already know because I already mentioned that I was going to be giving it away on a few posts back, but it is the original Rest Your Feathers wallhanging!  Here, let me show you some pictures -

The fabrics are Dandelion Girl by Fig Tree.  It measures 25" x 28".

This wall hanging was custom quilted by a wonderful free hand quilter here in Utah named Wren Woodlalnd.  Notice the little sun tucked behind some clouds in this picture:

Here, you can see some of the sweet little birdies she quilted.  I also like how she quilted the birdhouse.  She made the "welcome" look like it's on a plaque.

Well, I hope you are excited about this.  It's a little bit scary offering this as a prize...what if you don't even WANT it!?!

This giveaway is simple though~
