Hello all. I meant to post this Friday, when I had been posting our Road Trip Quilt Along Tutorials. And then I was going to get it up Saturday. When that didn’t happen, I thought first thing Sunday morning would be the time. Well, here we are, headed toward bedtime on Sunday evening, and I finally have a few (a very few, before I have to throw the little ones in the tub) moments to post this giveaway for you.
How are your Road Trip blocks coming along? I worked really hard last week so that I get all these put together to show you. I cut my sashing to 2.5 inches so that it would finish at 2 inches. I wanted the length to be a little larger than the width, so I randomly sewed together strips of the scraps I used in the quilt blocks and made an additional 6 inch border on the top and bottom. The yellow border will finish at 1 inch, just an accent, like the mat on a picture, and I plan to add one more, slightly wider border around the outside.
As a thank you for those of you who have played along with me for 16 weeks, I wanted to offer you a little giveaway. Since this is a road trip quilt along, I thought cars were appropriate. They are Ready, Set, Go Organic cars by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman. I added a few coordinating Kona solids and a cut of the leaf print from Denyse Schmidt’s Meadowlark collection for JoAnn.
To enter to win this bundle of five fat quarters:
Just leave a comment with a link to a blog post or photo of 8 finished Road Trip Quilt Along blocks.
If you’ve finished all 16 blocks, leave another comment telling me so.
This giveaway will close Saturday, September 29th, at 11:59pm EDT. I’ll pick the winner Sunday morning.
