Well, are you?? 2010 starts in less than 24 hours. It's time to kiss the old year good bye and welcome in the new year!! And it's the last day of my give away for two Fat Quarter Quilting books by Lori Smith.
All you have to do is sent me a short email letting me know what your favorite quilting tool is and why. Then, at the stroke of midnight, I'll randomly pick two comments, to win one of these fabulous books. Honestly though, it will probably be on January 1st -- I seldom make it to midnight!! I figure if I can watch the ball drop in Times Square, that's close enough!
I want to show you a few more pictures from our staff challenge with this book, but first I need to back up and clarify a "boo-boo" from one of my previous posts. I mistakenly listed this little quilt as Sharon Ernst's.....
and it's not. This beauty was made by Jo Schmidt AND she hand quilted it!! We have it hanging in the West Center store and it's beautiful!!! Sorry, Jo!!! The devil made me do it!
Now for some more pictures...
And this is the same quilt, Medallion Star, made by Carla, but she omitted one of the pieced borders at the top and the bottom, and used a striped fabric instead. Pretty much the same quilt, but they look very different. I think this quilt show's Carla's "funky" side (who knew??)!! Usually I see her stitching more traditional quilts. In fact, she's one of the gals making the Civil War BOM for us 'cause she loves Civil War fabric. Guess we all have a hidden "wild side", huh?
I'll try and post a few more pics later today, but for now, I need to get ready for work!! Have a great LAST day of 2009!!
