Hello! It’s so good to see you! If today is the first time you are visiting my blog, well then you picked a very good day to do so! It’s giveaway time, and an extra special one to boot! But first I’ve gotta show you a couple of thangs.
I finished my custom quilt order and even made matching pillow shams! Yay me!
I’m this close to constructing one full block (1 of 16) of my Arkansas Traveler quilt and I’m lovin’ how it’s looking so far. I only have a few more days to work on this project though. It was #8 on my 2016 UFO Challenge list and the number chosen for February. Hopefully, March’s # will be for a small project or one that is almost finished so I can come back to work on this beauty.
Now we can get to the important stuff; The Giveaway!
I’m giving away a sampler pack called Shadows which consists of 20 Fat Quarters in shades of grey (not 50…lol) and black & whites (even though the description on the link says 19) AND a 5 pack Salt & Pepper Thread Set by Connecting Threads. And this is where I have to say, this giveaway is in no way affiliated w/Connecting Threads. To sweeten it up a bit I’m including a Mojo bar and a $5 Starbucks gift card!

And to sweeten it up even more…I got a collaborator! Say hello to Sandra Fay of Fay West Designs! She’s a maker of gorgeous handmade jewelry that features miniature quilt blocks and fabric patterns. I came across her beautiful jewelry creations on Instagram @faywestdesigns and ordered myself these 2 pairs of earrings over the holidays. Aren’t they just lovely?!
She is graciously offering up these stunners as part of this giveaway. Thank you, Sandra!
This sturdy pair of hand-made earrings is made of lightweight bronze findings making them perfect for the most sensitive of ears. Each piece is handcrafted so no two are exactly alike. Attention is given to every detail. After the colorful pattern is created, it is heated to add strength. This results in a tight and bright intricate design. Small TILES Measure approx. 12mm square
