Road Trip Quilt Along: a GIVEAWAY!

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.

    Well Em,

    I don’t need to be in the giveaway but I’ve finished 20 of the 16 blocks and am not in the process of sewing them together and putting a border on them. Hopefully I’ll be finished by the time we come to visit.

    Apparently I’ve been granted another entry since I made dark and light versions of the blocks and have 26 completed. Sweet! Just doubled my chances of winning my first giveaway ever!
