Mini Windows Giveaway Winner

Thanks to everyone who commented!!!  I really enjoyed reading through each of your comments.  Giveaways are SO.MUCH.FUN!!!

Before I announce the winner (I know, I am so mean to keep you in suspense) I am going to share the dimensions for the mini block.  There were a couple people who asked so I thought I might as well share it will you all!

1 1/2" printed square
3/4" white
1 1/2" grey
3" template

Assemble as shown in my tutorial here.  You end up with a 2 1/2" block.  It took me 36 blocks to make this 17" square mini (I added a 1" strip of grey as a border...totally optional!).

On to the winner...

When asked to pick a number 1-95, my husband chose 4.

So, there you have it!

Number four is...

Congratulations Betty!!!  I love the modern stripes quilt also.  It was one of the very first quilts I made.  I have been thinking about making another...hopefully soon!  :)  Email me your mailing address and I will get this right off to you.

Thanks again to everyone!  I hope you stick around and experience the ups and downs of my sewing adventures with me!!!

100th Post Giveaway


WELCOME!!!  I am so glad you stopped by.

In celebration of FINALLY getting to 100 posts I am giving away this little beauty...

It is the mini version of a quilt I am giving the tutorial for over at CluckCluckSew.

It measures approximately 17" square.  The colored fabrics are Bubblegum Basics and the grey is Kona Coal.  I double stitched around each block as you can see on the back...

It is a great size to use as a doll quilt, table topper, wall hanging or whatever suits your fancy.  :)

To enter a chance to win...
1.  For one entry, leave a comment telling me your favorite pattern in my shop.  Make sure I have access to your email.
2.  For a second entry, blog/facebook/tweet about it.  Lets use the honor system here...come back and tell me in a separate comment that you did so.

I will close comments on the evening of Jan 31.

That's it!

Also, go over to CluckCluckSew and get a tutorial on how to make the baby size version of this quilt!


This has been keeping me busy! It's a little sneak peak for a tutorial I will be sharing over at Cluck Cluck Sew tomorrow. I am so excited to show you!!! It also has to do with my 100th Post Giveaway...either tomorrow or Friday. Probably tomorrow because I can't wait!!! :)

See you then...

I have really been enjoying using these Bubblegum Basics fabrics lately. They have sat on my shelf for quite some time not getting the use they deserve, mostly because I love them and hate to see them used up and gone. When in reality, I am giving them life by using them in a quilt and hopefully the recipient will love them just as much!

We are having computer issues...hopefully fixed soon so I can get back to it. This is being sent from my phone so hopefully it turns out. :)

This is my current project. No real rhyme or reason. Just made a bunch of squares. When I finally counted them up I have enough for two baby quilts. Maybe a twin pair? We'll see.

The question is, do I make two girl quilts or a boy/girl combination. Hmm...?
