Another one bites the dust and a little giveaway!

Last week while I was binding all those quilts, I just could not resist playing with fabrics. So I copied my friend, Pauline, and I hope she is flattered. At our SSQSG meeting, she had shared her Kathleen Tracy Flowerpot quilt. I so admired it that I had to make one for myself. I loved making the little flowers with their pinked edges and then finding buttons for each one. I'll contact a great iron worker to make a custom hanger for it, perhaps with Victorian-like flowers as the holders, and then it will adorn the wall just outside my sewing room.

Here's a little tease. Like I said, I had participated in Jo Morton's Yahoo Group's pincushion exchange. I loved the crazy wool pinkeep made by Kaaren of The Painted Quilt. So this week I made my own version. Now for the tease. When it is done, I will give it away to one of my followers. So keep checking in, and if you are not a follower, you might consider becoming one. You can choose to remain anonymous, of course, if you wish. All my present followers are already in the draw. They automatically get their names entered twice. To enter your name, become a follower for one entry and then mention the giveaway on your blog for another entry. Current followers can blog about it to get a third entry. Just send me a link to the blog on my email. Hope this is as much fun for you as it is for me.

I'll randomly choose a name on Sept. 15th, 2010 and then notify the winner on my blog. Good luck to everyone!
