Giveaway time is coming!

I was just thinking last night that I need to have a giveaway again, and today I see that the Quilter's Blog Hop Party with Give-Away is scheduled for next week!  How fortuitous!

Hop Party with Give-Aways

I am finishing up the Spanish Treasure piecing and last night I bit the bullet and ordered additional yardage for borders and backing rather than piecing it from the half yard cuts of Terrain that my Honey gave me for Christmas.  I  felt a little bad about it, since I started this project just to use those pieces, and I never really did, but Burgundy Buttons had a great sale and I knew I would hate the back of the quilt if I hodgepodge pieced it rather than attempted a wholecloth.  So I thought I would cut those half yard cuts down to a pair of fat quarters, keep one set (maybe for a new project) and give a set away.  I may or may not add a book on quilts from fat quarters to the giveaway just to make it more fun; I'll see if I have any I can part with.

At any rate, I plan to do the same thing I did last time and put up the post on Friday before the link goes live, giving my existing followers time to get an extra entry by commenting before Saturday.  If you're interested in some Terrain fat quarters, be sure come back between noon and midnight on Friday!

Oh, one other dilemma.  I'm finishing up the details of the Gothic Windows contribution to the Virginia Quilt Museum fundraiser; their first submission deadline is March 20 and I have label on and sleeve started, and forms half completed.  What's got me stumped is "Quilter's Bio."  How am I going to write that?  What would you expect to see in a short "quilter's bio"?
