Introducing Win-some Wednesday

Back in June I did a blog post about the pressure blogging and owning a store at the same time were putting on me.  Mostly because I felt I couldn't keep up with all the giveaway craziness out there.
I made the decision to keep this blog about my projects and not as a marketing tool.
And I am still of that conviction.

However, I also feel like I want to share some goodies with you from time to time.
So I bring you... Win-some (like it?) Wednesday.

This will be a low key event.  With small giveaways.
All you have to do is leave a comment on the giveaway post before next Wednesday.
That's it.

Today two readers can win a fat quarter of this fabric:
Because I'm feeling a little nostalgic.

(I've also posted a poll in the sidebar. I'd really appreciate it if you put your two cents in the hat.)

Dear Mom & Dad,

Thank you for raising me right.
BOM progress
I thought this would be a quick BOM to put together for the store.
Buy a couple of patterns.
Choose a couple of fabrics...

But I can't do that.
I have to check to see if the fabrics will look great.
And the pattern is written well.

So... may be a while.

I did it!
I finally finished my Pinwheel Party quilt.
Months and months after I wrote the instructions.

(I'll post more photos as soon as the weather cooperates.)

Another Beautiful Pinwheel Quilt

Mavi sent me photos of her absolutely stunning version of the Pinwheel Party quilt.
She hand pieced and hand quilted the whole thing!
She's wonderful quilter from Madrid, Spain.
If you'd like to see more of her work, be sure to visit her blog.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful quilt Mavi!
