600 posts?

I was mistaken...I have actually published only 585 posts so I have another 15 to post before the big 600.  (Well, I guess it will be 14 more AFTER this one!)  I will have to step up my game before the end of September or just keep it real and figure on the number rolling over some time in October.  Either way I will have lots of time to put together a big, fat giveaway!  Please check back once in a while...

The countdown begins!!

And the winner is....

Patty D from NC (8th comment).    I used Random.Org to generate the number for the winner but I cannot figure out how to do a screen print on my laptop.

Congratulations, Patty.  I will email you later today to get your address so I can mail these out to you.

Thanks to all who participated.  I think this may be my 600th post so another give away is coming soon!!

Goodies from Moda

I mentioned before that I won a giveaway on the Moda site for new patterns designed by Carrie Nelson.  The patterns were created to use with the new Moda pre-cut - Candy - which are 2.5" squares.  My package arrived the other day.

"Chip" is the first one I will attempt.  (I love a good star.)  I have not seen any of the small Moda pre-cuts yet at my favorite shop so I am going to cut up an extra charm pack of Sentiments (3 Sisters).  I am making a Christmas quilt using that fabric so this would be a nice piece to compliment the quilt.

From this group, I am going to do "Tickle" but that depends totally on how the first little quilt goes!  I may very well start twitching because these are small pieces and I struggle with anything less than a 2-1/2" square.  I do like Carrie's patterns (Miss Rosie's Quilt Company) and her directions are always very clear.

Since I am being realistic about how many of these patterns I am going to actually attempt, how about a giveaway?  The winner will receive 4 patterns.  Just leave a comment for an entry.  For a second entry, mention the giveaway on your blog linking back to this post and let me know that you did.  You do not have to be a follower.  The winner will be chosen by Random Generator on Wednesday morning at 6am Eastern time.

Enjoy your weekend!

Eleven years later and still so painful

How could any of us that witnessed the horrors that day ever forget?

God's peace, America.

Little Bites

I just received an email from United Notions that I won a set of Carrie Nelson's new "Little Bites" patterns that were designed to be used with Moda's new line of pre-cuts called Moda Candy.

(From The Cutting Table, Moda's blog)

Giddy, I tell you.  Just plain giddy!
