300 th Post!

My goodness here it is …well truth be told would be more if I had the time and a higher speed connection! Ha!!

So to celebrate this achievement I am doing a giveaway!!!

I wish to say thank you to the kind folks who visit to read and comment, those that follow this blog and the Google readers as well!

So folks this is just for you!!!

Please do not post this giveaway on your blogs!


All comments for the giveaway must be on this post only!

You do not have to do anything other than comment and choose!

You must have an email on your profile or in your comment so I can get in touch with you .

If none and you are picked will pick another if I cannot email you.

No anonymous comments will be included.

If you are picked and do not reply to my email to you in 24 hrs I will generate another draw.

I will do the drawing Aug 1, Monday afternoon at 3PM EST!

Hope this will give everyone a chance to see the post over weekend and comment.


You pick which ‘giveaway’ you want to put your name in the ‘hat’ for …just say which one in your comment.. 1..2..3.


I made these ‘hangers’ myself. Yes I call them hangers! Ha!

There are loads of books, patterns, etc. around for the ‘skinny’ quilts.

This is my version.

They have loops at top to hang on hooks, door hooks or pegs anywhere you would like!

All done by machine, simply pieced, quilted and appliquéd.

Well on the snow fella one I did add the snowflakes of pearl cotton by hand…;-)

The patterns are from my BIG collection new, never cut.

Hope you can click on pics to enlarge!

1. I will call this one Red, White and Blue. A Folk Art Americana Hanger plus the 3 Fats with a pattern for ‘Federal Homestead’ wall quilt which has the flag fabric inside.


2.This is Fall and Winter with Jacks Hanger and Snow Fellas Hanger…and a pattern for ‘Harvest Mats’ pattern.


3.Last One.. yes calling it that…;-) another Folk Art Americana Hanger, a pattern of ‘Glory’ a small wall quilt and a pattern for ‘Winter’s Song’ for a pilla/small hanging…cute!

Now decide which one ya would like and leave a comment !!!!

Thanks again!!!!
