Giveaway and guilt



giveaway  Don't forget to enter but just in case you can't enter for some reason i will take comments until Friday at 6 o'clock.  The last picture is what i am giving to one of my followers.  Remember any comment from Monday until Friday!

Hi friends!
Rainy!!!
I love that quilt!!!  It's the first one that went together fast and i did,t have to redo big parts of.!!!  I have started one for Alisha , my daughter's youngest daughter and will show you some block later.   I have just made 3 blocks so there is not much to see.
I love it all cuddly after i washed it.   Did i tell you it only took 2 weeks?  And i worked on the blue quilt off and on during that 2 weeks!
I measured my blocks for her quilt and they are 22 inches so maybe 6 or 9 more blocks to make a twin sized quilt.
With sashing   3 blocks will measure at least 70 inches and that is with skinny sashing.
Well got to get back to work.... Have a great sewing day.   Quilt Happy

I think that's a beautiful quilt. But I don't understand how you do it if you just have a sewing machine.

Such bright cheerful colors. I only started using brighter colors. I guess I was always afraid as to how it would turn out. But yours look perfect, very pretty.

I love all your quilts. I'm trying to get up the nerve to make one myself. I figure, with all the fabric scraps from other projects, I'm gonna have to lol! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Very pretty quilt and to be done so quickly! I have been saving scraps for a long time waiting for the right pattern to come along. I really like how yours turned out.
