I love a blog with beautiful pictures and lots of clean, white space like yours! Thanks for the great giveaway!
I’ve got two little girls and I do most of my sewing after they are tucked in bed for the night, you know, by moonlight. I just started this blog in January, so I’m definitely still figuring out the ins and outs of this sewing blog business, but I decided to jump head first into the deep end and host my first quilt along this summer.
So far, there’s been only a little bit of interest and I’m feeling a little bit lonely in the Flickr group, so if you’re looking for a unique sampler quilt, I’d love it if you would join us.
Here’s the deal. My family is going on this insane road trip this summer that involves a wedding, a Master’s thesis defense, a reunion with old friends, and an abundance of national parks. Over the course of two months we will make a loop through the country, traveling through 16 states in the process. Since there are quilt blocks which represent each state, I thought it would fun be to make a sampler quilt with all those state quilt blocks. Thus was hatched my idea for a Summer Road Trip Quilt Along.
And if you’re going to join a quilt along, you’re going to need a little fabric to get you started. I’ve been really crushing on rainbow projects lately, so I thought I would offer you a pack of 42 rainbow charm squares.
Unfortunately, I messed up the cutting, so now I’m offering 36 charm squares plus 6 5-inch x 4-inch rectangles. Sorry about that. Can we blame it on the fact that the day I cut the charms I woke up at 4am to run a half marathon?
To enter, leave me a comment. Tell me what you’re looking for in a sewing/quilt blog; what sorts of projects and posts would bring you back to visit again? I’m looking to improve my new space here, and I’m hoping you can help me do that, so if you have any suggestions about what could make this blog better, I’d love to hear those as well.
The giveaway is open to all and will close on Friday, May 25th at 8pm EDT. Please make sure your email address is in your comment if it’s not associated with your profile.
