What? A Monday Post? A Giveaway?!?!

I don't usually post on Mondays but this week there are several really exciting reasons why I am.  First of all, it is because I had one of the best weekends.  Friday I spent the day at a Bonnie Hunter workshops learning the ins and outs of her quilt Jamestown Landing found in String Fling: Scrappy, Happy and Loving It!.  Saturday I went to our quilt guild meeting and got to hear her talk about her quilts and see her trunk show.  I have loads of pictures to share sometime (if they come out well.)  I took them all on my phone.

Jamestown Landing by Bonnie Hunter

Bonnie was great.  She was so down to earth and I learned so much from her. I feel like I have a better grasp on using her preferred specialty rulers.  It turns out I was using them the slowest way and she really sped up the process for me.  My half-square triangles are more accurate.  We also learned how to string piece.  I have actually never done this before.  I love it!

The picture above is what I have done so far.  This quilt has 840 HSTs!  So I have a LONG way to go. There are 3 sandwich bags there that each have 10 blocks in them.  I am not sure how many squares are in my basket.  I haven't really been counting. 

I will share more about Bonnie another post because I have another exciting announcement.  I am going to do my first giveaway!!



I have this Quilt Halo in my desk drawer and its been there for months.  I bought it and only tried it once.  Its a great product but its not just for me.  I have been machine quilting with just my hands for way too long.  I thought it would be a great item to pass along for someone else to try without having to purchase it.  It was an expensive notion so this would be a great way to save a few dollars.  So that means a chance to win for one of you!  All I ask is that you comment on my post about what quilty things you did this weekend and I will randomly choose a winner in the evening of May 10th.  That's the only requirement I have.  I would love it if you became a follower but its definitely not required.   

Follow on Bloglovin

Since this item is kind of heavy I am leaving this giveaway open to US residents only. (OOOPS, I posted this in the international section so I am opening it up to everyone!) Sorry!  Also, please make sure you are not a no-reply blogger or leave your email address in your comment so I can contact you about your prize.  If there is no email I am going to draw another winner so make sure its there!

I am linking up to Sew Mama Sew for her giveaway day.  Welcome to my blog if you are visiting from there.  If your one of my regular followers be sure to click the link to check out all the other giveaways.  I know I am going to enter a few myself!





Comments are now closed! I will announce a winner tomorrow morning. I spent the night at a mother son dance tonight and my son wiped me out. Bed time for me!

  163. I've been working as much as possible on my 3x6 bee blocks. I thought I had picked a block that was simpler than my original plan, and it was, but it was still so much more time consuming than I had planned. Oh well :)
