Quilt Along...

Wow, I'm running a little late to this party (quilt along).  But that's okay because this is a great pattern & is going to be tons of fun!  If you'd like to join or find out the specifics just click here.  I've decided to use Prayer Flag by April Cornell.  Now on to cutting...

Break time...

Well, more like we are going on vacation.  My kid has been asking (NON-STOP) to see his grandma...so we are going to Biloxi!  And since we will be on vacation, no internet or email for me!!! YEAH BABY!

I wanted to do a post about the fabric I picked for the quilt along but there are other things I need to do before we leave.  I'll just do it when we get back.

So, have a good!  Should be back by the end of next week...giggle!

ps...since I won't have access to email...I'm setting this post to not allow comments.

My 'Random Number Generator' wanted his Transformer watch in the shot:

2. Allie
3. PunkiePie (Jen)
Ladies...please email your snail mail address so I can get your packages out to you.  And I didn't think I mentioned it but y'all won't know which colors you'll be getting...giggle!!!  Thanks for the smiles!

In the SPIRIT of friendship...I'm going to give 3 of you out there a third of this lovely bundle.  That's right, I'm going to open up this fq & divide it by 3...LOL!  I wanted to do this last month but with school, T-ball and everything else in-between I didn't have the energy.  The reason?  Well, it was 2 years ago when I found Kelly's blog.  And ever since then I've been inspired/touched by what I see out in blog land.  So I wanted to do something nice for the ladies (I don't think there are any men out there) that stop by to see what I've been up to & for the ladies that I call my support group (aka. followers).  I'm not saying we have to be BFF's but I appreciate being a part of this wonderful group.  So, if you'd like to be entered...(I'm using the K.I.S.S method)...answer me this:

If you were a quilt, what style/pattern quilt would you be?  (I'd be a patchwork quilt.)

I will pick the winners on Sunday, June 12DRAWING RESCHEDULED FOR MONDAY NIGHT (6/13).  Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun!

Have a wonderful week!!!

(ps...imagine the song "You are my sunshine..." playing in the backround while you're reading this post....)

This giveaway is now closed.

CGQC May(?)/June Goals...

 I'm a little behind so I'll just focus on June, I have a few things I'd like to complete/start:

1. Red, White & Blue pillow case.  I need to go through my stash to find the right fabrics.  This is for Carol of Brown Quilts.  Carol had a real touching post & if your interested in making a special kind of pillow case, you can check it out here.
2. Bind Scratch made of Chic or Treat.
3. Start on the Log-A-Load t-shirt quilt...needs to be completed by the first week in August.
4. Get a jump start on the Carolina bag!  This is one of Kim's, of Sherrod Studio, patterns.  You can find more of her patterns here.

Even though I've listed my goals, I reserve the right to add or change my list...lol! Have a great weekend!
