Giveaway Day: I'm in Quilts and More!

Hey everyone! Happy Giveaway Day!

Months ago I submitted a quilted tote bag to Quilts and More and they accepted it! It's in the issue that's out now, the Summer 2014.


I made the bag with Waterfront Park by Violet Craft and Cotton Couture solids in Clementine. My giveaway is a copy of the magazine and the fabric needed to make my bag. I've even got the right amount of strap for you here. All you need is batting and thread! And the willingness to try free-motion quilting. And I know a really good free-motion quilting book if you need one (wink).

The giveaway is open to everyone all over the world. It will close on April 16 apparently it's May, so how about May 16th? To enter please just let me know your favorite color right now. I'm in a colorful mood today.  The giveaway is closed and the winner is #125 Elsa! Thank you all for sharing your color love and congratulations and the nice thoughts about my book too.
