The Random Generator chose comment no 38.
The winner is Emily and I will email you to get your mailing details. Thank you for all the lovely comments (When I did this with random generator - overseen by Lens Guy - I set it to 1 - 87 but somehow on the blog it has reverted back to 100. Can someone let me know how to fix this for a future time?)
I have been spending too much time looking at all the quilts in the Bloggers Quilt Festival and discovering so many fabulous blogs and inspirational quilts. If you do not know about this fab event you can drool at all the lovely quilts by going to Amy's blog and clicking on more than 500 submissions for the quilt festival... I found the Giveaway hosted by Sew Mama Sew and decided I should get involved as I have enjoyed looking at all the quilts and other items. I am linking to the Handmade Sewing and Craft Supplies - Willing to Ship Internationally to winner. You can find many more wonderful Giveaways at the Sew Mama blog.
I am addicted to these little bird pincushions and have made too many. I added some crocheted lace around the base of the pincushion and found some pretty ribbons and pins to go with it. All you need to do to be in with a chance of this giveaway is leave a comment and I will use random comment generator to select the winner after May 25th. I will email the winner by May 27th (you will need to have reply option available on your comment box.)
For those of you who looked at the start of my first quilt in the post below I can say that I have now finished the quilt top. I deviated from the pattern as there were some scraps left from the jelly roll and I pieced these together with some of the grey from the border. Youngest daughter assisted with the photography but I think she needs some training as it is not perfectly straight...
I think the grey border makes it less rustic and helps tie the different Japanese Taupes together. She had to stand on top of the bed (perhaps why it's a little blurry) to get enough height. It is approximately 56 inches x 80 inches wide.
I think you can see the border here when it is draped over the door. Once pay day comes I can buy my walking foot and attempt to quilt this (once I basted it etc). I have been playing with the back too. For those of you who said I would not be able to stop once I started you are right. I have been trying out some Granny Squares from the tutorial here. I don't have a design wall but this sort of works...
Thank you for dropping by - I don't use word verification as it drives me mad when I try and comment on blogs that have it. If you like the bird check out this link to Efemera ink's blog who kindly gave me the pattern in the first place. She has all kinds of crafty goodness on her site.
