A FINISH AND A GIVEAWAY!!!

A finish....


I finished my Midwinter Blues.  A big thank you to Lori for hosting this wonderful QAL.  She makes it easy for the rest of us.



I finished my Hip Chicks February BOM blocks.  The block on the left is pieced. It was a tough one.  These blocks are only 6" finished.  Now don't get excited, the blocks on the right are fusible applique.  Later I will add button hole applique.  This is the last of my BOMs for the month...another project crossed off my list.

Yesterday it was so beautiful.  The sun was shining and the yard was full of hungry birds.  They emptied my bird feeders.  We decided to go on a nice ride and out to lunch on Sunday.  Surprise...woke up this morning and it is snowing yet again.  No ride for us.  Instead I will be spending time in my sewing room make the final 2 Plaid Jacob Ladder blocks to complete the 10 blocks I wanted to get done this month.  I still have about 18 blocks to go to finish this quilt.


Now I think I mentioned a giveaway.  Week #3 Giveaway is.....


The book is "Welcome the Seasons" by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts.  I love the quilt on the front.  The box shown in the photo is included in the giveaway.  This one is mine...I emptied out all my supplies so I could show it to you.  Yours will come in a cellophane package.  

Now to enter the giveaway.....

Thanks you for stopping by.  

Hugs, Cathy

your MidWinter Blues QAL turned out so pretty~!
i've put this little project on my 'someday' list.

i'm impressed by your tiny blocks and know how hard it can be to make many small pieces 'play nice' together sometimes.

your drawing is tempting and generous but i really am paring down . . . so i'm wishing everyone else luck.
