Giveaway of One Last Box of Samples.........................


One day recently when I just wanted to "SEW", I finished up these 92 Railfence blocks that were just waiting for the last log.  Have been making them as my Leaders/Enders (when I wasn't making 8 quick half square  triangles as Leaders/Enders)........ need 596 for a  72" x 72" quilt quilt and this brings me to  435....... One more round of 161 and I will have enough!  That is, unless I try it on my bed and think I need 78" x 78" which is about what I make for my own bed quilts.............

Would love to handquilt it,  but I have my Colonial Medallion basted and waiting for me!  And, I feel that I have to hold off on Anything/Everything except making the potholder blocks for the Maine show exhibit this summer.  Have only 10 finished with 30 to go.  However, all but one Hard One is done and I SHOULD be able to make up for lost time with the easier ones.




Think I will make little doll quilts like this and then assemble them into the whole Quilt.  






Jo Morton's new line with Moda, "Gratitude" can be seen here!!  Won't be getting it until August so this is just a Tease!!!!

New fabrics recently are Dargate Vines from Margo Krager..........luscious as always!  Some of  the Dargate Ploychromes are on top!




Don't the half yard cuts look beautiful all nice and neat in their crate?




I have one last box of fabric samples remaining......you know the drill.....just leave a comment and my Random Generator Husband will pick a number and we will see who wins!  Sorry I cannot send them out of  USA..........overseas postage has increased greatly!

  5. I've been handsewing my 1/2" scraps into Rail Fence blocks for several years now, seem that they multiply faster than I can sew them together! Would love to win the box of samples so I could add them to my Sampler Quilt - need 10,000 different fabrics, and I'm halfway there. Thanks for another chance!

  67. I hope i'm not too late to the party!
    I'm loving your idea of using magic 8 triangles as leader/enders! I have an immense number of HSTs I want to sew up for a future project, and that just might be the best idea ever for getting me there!

  71. I love your Rail Fence blocks. They are going to make a wondeful quilt. When you right the number of blocks at 596 it sounds a little daunting. I hope the 72 X 72 will be the right size. Your fabrics would make great baskets for my Promise Basket quilt, thanks for a chance to win.
