100 Blog Post Giveaway







OK, I see a lot of bloggers doing this so I thought I'd jump on the giveaway bandwagon. This is actually my 101st post but I noticed Friday's was number 100!
Just remember one woman's (or man's) junk is another one's treasure. I'm not saying it is all junk, but it is something I no longer want in my closet.
With the help of my brother and sister we just moved my mom from a 3 bd home that she has been in for 18 years to a 1 bd apartment. It reminded me to clean the clutter from my house so nobody will have to roll their eyes at my collections of stuff!


Several years ago I ordered a BOM pattern from The Quilted Garden. (can't find them online any longer) It was Botanika by Robyn Pandolph- very beautiful. It could be elegant or you could make it more loose and primitive. I did 2 blocks, prepped a 3rd and now I would like it gone.
If you do a google search for Robyn Pandolph Botanika quilt you will see the whole quilt as she did it. I also see a few shops still offering it as a BOM.

The only thing I ask is that the winner do something with the 2 blocks that are already made. Use them as a medallion then donate them to a charity,or whatever, but don't just chuck them in the thrift store bin and keep the patterns. I want to see what you do with the 2 blocks. The other thing is don't look too closely at my hand applique:)

What you will win: 2 completed appliqued blocks, 1 blocked pinned and pieces cut out, 12 patterns by Robyn Pandolph. These blocks finish at 20".

Feel free to comment even if you don't want the patterns or blocks, just let me know.
Cut off time will be Tuesday night 9PM Pacific time. I'll post the winner on Wednesday.

  9. 100th post, amazing how they do add up. I have a wedding late summer and your blocks would make great pillows, or like Kathie suggested a round robin. Count me in and thanks for sharing, I'm sure your applique will be in place for years to come.

    The applique blocks that you have completed are very pretty - wouldn't they all look nice put together or even they could stand alone as pillows. I would love to be entered into your drawer! Thank you for the chance to win :)
