There's No Way I Can Make Those Blocks! Giveaway

Giveaway Closed:
The winner is #3, Julie!  
(who must have stock in Random.org and has rigged the system somehow!)

Thanks to you all for participating!  You Rock!


Here are the last three blocks in the Skill Builder Sampler!  The Compass Block was do-able, the Feathered Star was frustrating and the Butterfly was challenging to say the least, but I Did It!  And I am so proud of all the people who completed the whole sampler with me!  Believe me, I know it wasn't easy - either to make all of the blocks or to have a weekly quilt block commitment.  Thanks for sticking with it.  :)


For this weeks giveaway there are 5 fat quarters up for grabs.  There is some Ruby, Walk in the Woods and an unidentified but fun dot.  You may be enter up to three times in the giveaway.  Leave a comment if:
  1. You completed Blocks 34-36 of the Skill Builder Sampler
  2. You completed Blocks 31-33 of the Skill Builder Sampler (Since I didn't do a giveaway last time)
  3. You have completed all of the Blocks in the Skill Builder Sampler
Giveaway closes July 6th in the AM.


Starting next Friday we will start working on different ways to put the blocks together.  Feel free to just plow on ahead and finish your quilt, but I am going to be working at a more leisurely pace.  This summer has been busy!  

Did you see that Vanessa has already finished her quilt top and is starting to hand quilt it?!?  So beautiful and the sashing is perfect for all of those not-quite-to-size blocks.  Beautiful!  I was planning on putting mine together differently, but I just might have to copy her.  :)

  7. And I managed to quilt along and complete all of the blocks for this amazing sampler. I have stitched them all up and am now beavering away on my quilting, looking forward to showing a finished quilt sometime soon.
    Big thanks and a hip, hip hooray to Leila for putting it all together and taking so much time to write tutorials or link us up. It has been fun. A bit sad that it's over to be honest. : (
