FREE FABRIC for Someone!


I know I promised to have a give-away this week, so let's get to it.  I need to find a home for one of these fabric bundles from my new line, "BEYOND THE GATE."
You may have noticed the cute little key charm on the fabric packs  I am making those to give out at my upcoming OPEN HOUSE next month.  Please stop by if you live around here, or I will be stuck with a lot of these!
 If you are wondering, "Why the key?"  well, it is because the Gate needs a key to open!  And there is a pattern in the collection with charming old keys scattered across it.
 Isn't that fun? Be sure to ask your local quilt shop to get this line ordered so you can start creating.  What would you do with this fabric?   Leave me a comment and be sure that you are signed up as one of my followers.  I will do a drawing for the fat quarter bundle on Saturday afternoon. 

I wanted to show you a couple more pages from the new book, Home Sweet Quilt.


Hope you enjoyed that peek at the book.  You can order it on my website, or get it at your local quilt shop. 
Don't forget to enter to win the fabric!!

ACUTALLY, I know exactly what I want to do with this fabric. Our family is doing your watermelon pattern for our quilt next year. It is super super super cute and I think I can pick out some of the reds and the greens that will work great with that. BTW - I have seen that quilt in person cause you came to my guild and I fell in love with it so I talked all the ladies in my family at making one. So I will keep my fingers crossed and this will give me a head start to that.

Oh Jill - the fabric looks wonderful and your key tags are so cute. They remind me of "The Secret Garden" novel. Ah memories.

If I had this fabric I would pat it for quite a few weeks and then make something - however the key fabric would have to become a key fob.

I so wish I could 'click my heels' to get to your open house.

onlymehere said...

P.S. I've made her other three siblings pieced and quilted quilts in case that wasn't clear in my comment above so she's had to wait while they got married and got quilts. I made her a tied picnic quilt when she married so she wasn't without a quilt though! Didn't want you to think I played favorites, lol!
