Carpenter's Pillow Kit Giveaway!

Oh Glorious Happy Giveaway Day in Quilting Blogland! Sooo many of the blogs I follow are offering generous giveaways today, I am having a hard time staying focused on the computer this morning! Tempestuous offers of fabrics are dangling about, and handmade's as well keep me jumping from one site to the next.

I began surfing, and leaving comments, and my excitement grew at the opportunity to WIN! Then I remembered the joy of GIVING & I decided I must head on over to Sew Mama Sew and CRASH THIS PARTY!

If you are new to my blog, welcome and thank you for the visit! I use this space to post about progress on projects once or twice a week. I blog to share with family and friends, and because I love meeting other quilter's online, especially funny quilter's (funny funny I mean, although funny odd is OK too). I enjoy being a part of the online community of quilting that has allowed quilter's to collaborate internationally. My part may be small, but I somehow feel we are contributing to history, a sort of New Age of quilting. I also find blogging helps me to accomplish more quilting!

My giveaway today is a kit I put together made of fabrics from my stash. I made these kits for my new Etsy Fabric Shop. I haven't finished quilting mine to show you, but here is a pieced square with the exact fabrics included...
The kit includes pre-cut fabric and a pattern to complete two Carpenter's Wheel blocks. I also did a tutorial for this block here.

Here is a photo of the first pillow kits I made, these with all vintage fabrics and finished quilting.


Anyone (with contact info) is eligible to win by commenting on this post prior to 5PM PST Friday, December 13th!

THANK YOU & GOOD LUCK!

  21. Wow, Heidi - this is fun! Totally with you about your feeling of Blog Land bringing on a sort of New Age for quilting. I really wanted to do my thesis on recent quilting history in this connection, but my advisors shot it down - said it was too young, still, and would make a great sociology or anthropology thesis, but not yet for history. ::sigh:: ;D

  29. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the colors you picked! That's the hardest part of quilting, coordinating/matching. Purple, teal, pink and lime, when I put them together it never looks nice. I even took a color class to make a quilt, just looking at it makes me nauseous. Great idea! Thanks for the generous giveaway! ;-> Toni Anne
