OMG: It's Finished! Prizes added to March Linkup!

One more week to race toward our end-of-the-month goals!
This is where my Southwest Summer Tote stands at this time:
Yep, it is bright alright. I don't think it will ever be misplaced - lol!
I have gained a whole new respect for bag-making this week. Step-by-slow-step, I'm working my way through the directions as per The Better Bagmaker by Nicole Mallalieu.

The bottom did level out with the weight of the layers. Looks swell using the metal feet I picked up from Bagmaker Supply too.
These are the 1/2" size - they remind me of over-sized, very large brads. Easy to install.
Yesterday I finished the straps & handles, and I am working on the lining pockets - almost ready for final assembly!

OK, Time to celebrate our March 'Goal' achievements!
Perhaps you would like a bit of incentive first? We have some exciting prizes in the pot:

Bagmaker Supply has offered a $20.00 discount to one lucky prize-winner this month!

Apparently Bagmaker is not the only one who likes what your are linking up with!
Way to go OMG Partier's! We have two new additions this month:

Fat Quarter Shop has generously offered a monthly $25.00 gift certificate!
Have you ever won a FQS gift certificate?
That is what instigated my first order with FQS, and I've been a fan ever since. (yes, I am a regular stalker of the Daily Deal, are you?). Seriously, they are so very generous as top-notch supporters of the online quilting community!

Thank you, Thank you, Fat Quarter Shop!

And guess who else would like to donate to the cause?
Christa Watson, of ChristaQuilts, has generously offered one copy of each her books!
Machine Quilting with Style will ship to one random winner this month!
Christa's new book, co-authored with Angela Walters, The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting will be awarded in April - hot off the press!

Please take a few minutes to visit our sponsors to let them know we appreciate them!

And because I appreciate YOU, I curated this pretty Springtime Roll-up for the prize pool too!

Good Luck to everyone, I am looking forward to seeing all the finishes and hope you will take some time to check them out as well!


  1. Wow! Great support from quilty sponsors! I love the FatQuarter Shop too. Their 24hr Flash Sale today was rather lovely! Your new bag is looking good. Tricked out with some nice additions from the Bagmaker. I'm sewing away here. I'll have to work on setting a monthly goal to report :-)
