It's Giveaway Time!!!
Thank you to the Quilting Gallery for hosting the Quilter's Blog Hop Party! Somehow they were reading my mind and knew that I had something to give away and thought they'd help direct some traffic this way. :-)
If you've never visited before, welcome! I'm Kristen (Ten for short, hence the name of the blog), and I am a wife (as of January), mother, stepmother, full-time data analyst, volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate, quilt guild member, pet owner, and, since last year, blogger. I have been quilting for over twenty years and really NEED that time to sew in order to keep my sanity. I have quotation hanging in my sewing room which reads, "I cannot count my day complete/til needle, thread and fabric meet" and it is very true ... I feel like I missed out on an important element of my day if I have done no sewing whatsoever.
Here is a small collage (thanks to Picasa and the instructions at Skip to My Lou) of some of the projects I've featured here since I began the blog.
Now, about the giveaway! Here's the thing: my Honey is the most supportive husband a quilter could ever have. He does not ever seem to think that I already have enough fabric, and every Christmas he buys me more! This past year, he bought me half yard cuts of a number of fabrics from Kate Spain's Terrain line; the line was on my wish list but I was (of course) thinking precuts. I couldn't think about what to do with them, so I bought some charm packs to supplement, and then a layer cake of her Good Fortune line, and then I ended up making a quilt top almost entirely of what I'd bought to supplement his gift and cut only small bits of a few of his fabrics! Oops! So I feel compelled to share the wealth.
I am giving away seven fat quarters (is that a baker's half dozen?) of Terrain, and the classic M'Liss Rae Hawley book, "Fat Quarter Quilts."
Thanks for visiting and good luck - I'm looking forward to reading the comments!
