Special Giveaway

In honor of having 500 followers I'm having a giveaway.  I hit that number the day I left for Sunriver and haven't had a chance to post yet. What is really funny is that after I updated IE I cannot even see my followers list.  But, I do appreciate every one of you. I've met some wonderful quilters through the internet and hope to meet many more.

I picked up this book in Sisters and put the final stitches in the little quilt "Westward Ho!" last night.
Leave a comment or send me an email to be in the drawing. I'll draw a random name on Friday.

Have a wonderful Monday!!

    As always, yours is one of my favorite blogs!! I'm determined to finish several of my UFO's so I can make a couple of quilts like you have displayed!!! I never was a small quilt maker, but have started with vintage blocks I've found on ebay. So would love to have the book!! Congratulations on 500 - you inspire many of us!!

    Blessings

  18. OH! I so wanted to meet up with you, Randy and Bonnie while in Sisters. Maybe some other year. Sounds like you all had a wonderful time. I was with dear hubby who took wonderful photos of the day at Sisters. We compromise, I go hiking, he goes to quilt shows. Works out just great. I think I need a new book to get back into the groove of piecing and finishing projects. Thanks.
