Week 2 Giveaway 2

But first I want to share a special project with you.  Last year I got to know Sharon at Fabrics and Flowers when I entered a giveaway on her blog.  I won! She is a very talented designer and publishes under the name Color Girl.  I made the quilt in the pattern and was so happy with it.  After chit chatting back and forth she asked if I would mind proof reading patterns once in a while.  I jumped at the chance.

She has just designed a fan quilt called "Twirling Fans" and I got to proof it.  Not only did I proof it I made one of the blocks.  I thought it would be soooo hard but with her directions I made the block in a day.  She said I could share my block with you.



I pulled all of the fabrics from my scrap bag.  I could not believe how quickly it came together.  So please stop on over to her blog and check out the pattern. Just click on the link above.  You won't be disappointed.


Congrats to the winners from last weeks Giveaway.

Now for the second Giveaway.  Monday is my 25th Wedding Anniversary. What better way to celebrate than to have a giveaway of a book by one of my favorite authors and designers.



I love her designs so much that I purchased the book twice.  lol

For a chance to win the book leave me a comment that you are a follower and tell me what you like about Kim's designs.

For a second chance to win blog about my giveaway and let me know.

You have until Friday night to enter, a winner will be chosen on Saturday, February 15th.  Good Luck!!

Hugs, Cathy

P.S. It is starting to snow here yet again.  Boo hoo!

I would LOVE to win this book! I love Kim Diehl's designs, first because they are scrappy and cozy looking with appliqué that isn't super hard.
