Boy the week is sure flying by quickly...I swear that yesterday was Monday, even though my phone said Wednesday~ and what has happened to my world ...my phone knows more about what day it is than I do! There was a time when I wore a pretty button bracelet watch every day...now I check my phone for the time. I'm not sure I like how this is going but it sure is going. Anyway where was I, oh yeah, distracted by something shiny.
Last night I was able to get the borders on my Carol's Christmas Cacophony -- oh I love alliteration!
I added a peppermint-y stripe inner border and used cornerstones so I wouldn't have to match anything.
I took this pictures outside and the color isn't quite right. The quilt is a lovely soft yellow interspersed with wild dollops of color - LOL! I'm going to use that peppermint-y stripe for the binding and in fact I already made it -- oh I am so proud of me - LOL!
And this is the fabric I found for the back -- OMG isn't it perfect? I found it at Joanns and it was 50% off and I know I haven't seen it there before yesterday. The clerk said they had gotten some new bolts in just before the sale and this had to one of them. I can't believe I would have passed this by if I had seen it before.
So where does that leave me? I have a lovely Christmas quilt top and I still have a bin of Christmas fabrics that is bursting at the seams. So I think that a giveaway is in order.
Here is a sampling of what I will send you .... 100 5" squares of Christmas-y winter-y fabrics.There will be duplicates but overall there will be about 40 different fabrics. No Big Dude is not included in the giveaway but you may need to know that there is a pet - a LARGE furry cat- that lives in my home and claims my cutting table as a perch most afternoons. In looking more closely at this picture I realize it could be one of those "where's Waldo?" puzzles.... do you see scissors, and a crab, and a train and a big mess? Oh you are observant.
Anyway here's the deal.. leave me a Christmas greeting on this post and I will send one lucky winner 100 5" squares. This giveaway will run from today till next Tuesday - October 23rd at midnight EST - then I'll pick a winner and announce it on Wednesday the 24 - sound good? I hope so!
Okay I'm off to get some dinner - happy stitching!
