New Quilt: Step 1 PLUS My First Giveaway!

So, I got all my fabric squares ready for this first quilt o'mine and realized...hmm...directions say 40 10"x10" squares" - I have 24 10"x10" squares...note to self: always read the ENTIRE listing before you purchase...soooo, needless to say, I had to cut more squares. Well, I enlisted the help of my 4-year-old and we cut more squares (I didn't have any other Nicey Jane prints, but I think we did OK). Then he laid them all out for me...not sure if this is the pattern I will go with, but I think he did a pretty darn good job.

Now, on to the strip cutting & sewing...yay!!!

Now...drum roll it is! My first giveaway! The prize for this time around is this little tote bag & the 3 fabric flower brooches attached to it (these are removable & look adorable on just about anything...;))

This REVERSIBLE tote is made with both Sandi Henderson & Tina Givens fabrics and measures approximately 16" tall x 14" wide...perfect for holding all of your necessities while shopping, at the beach, or on a trip to the library.
Wouldn't you just love to own it???

  1. My ideal spring day is in the park while the kiddies are playing and I am reading a book....then I pinch myself and realize if I were in the park, I'd be chasing them around....:-)

  2. Ideal spring day....sitting on my front porce with my hubby while the kids run around/ride bikes. Love my front porch and love to people watch from the porch.

  5. My ideal spring day is a day like today. Sitting in the grass and playing with my soon to be 3 year old and her best friend (my best friend's daughter). There's a wonderful breeze, the sun is shining and it's BEAUTIFUL outside! If Phoenix was this nice every day I'd never want to leave!

  6. Girl! :) LOVE the quilt layout. Beautiful! You...are...amazing!!! Okay, you know my story - I try to subscribe to follow your blog but my computer is d-u-m-b DUMB!

  7. Maggie! My perfect spring day is sitting in the back yard with a sister, smelling spring smells, hearing spring sounds, and watching my kids and their cousins run around and play. : ) Spring ROCKS!!! {and I love that bag... : ) }
