Hello there sweet peeps! How was your weekend? It sure seems like the weekends go by so quickly. And can you believe that it is already the middle of JULY!!! Do you know that fall is just around the corner, and then you know what comes next!!!
So what have I been working on this weekend? Here's a clue -
Yep, I've been working on the quilts for Joplin. I'm on my third quilt top to be sent to the Long ladies of marie-madeline studio in MO. They are working to get quilts to those who have lost everything during the recent and destructive tornado. You can check out the Joplin Quilt Project.
Now last week I promised that if you followed along with me on my Shop Hop that I would be putting together a little giveaway. As you know, you can't go on a Shop Hop and not find some little treasures. I was happy to find some fabric I was looking for, plus enjoying all the eye candy and inspiration.
I picked up these fat quarters for you, my sweet readers. And this quick and easy pattern and ruler.
and I thought, why don't I make a little tote to put these goodies in?
If you look closely you can see it is all sewing motifs. From a Debbie Mumm fabric line. We all love a Thread Bear, right?
So what do you have to do to enter this giveaway? Just leave a comment on this post :-) And because I love my followers, you get a second entry. Just be sure to let me know that you are already a follower.
And as an added entry, if you will contact the Long ladies, you can request a fabric bundle to make a quilt top for those who can really use it. Their goal is to distribute the quilts in the fall, when the weather turns cooler. So go to the Joplin Quilt Project and find out the details. Leave me another comment that you will commit to making at least one quilt top (or send a completed quilt if you like). This giveaway will stay open until Friday July 22, and I will post the winner on Saturday.
Have a great quilting week!
