Doll Quilts and a Giveaway!






Firstly, I am slowly working on making doll quilts from cute blocks I made years ago. The blocks are not my finest work, but I am having fun finishing them off at 12x12...this one is getting binding tonight.

Now that we are done with tonight's business...let's move on to the exciting bit. A giveaway. I have won a few giveaways in the past year and have been really touched by the generosity of the quilters and crafty people in blogland...so in hopes of marking my little space in blogland and becoming more of a social butterfly I would like to host a giveaway.

I have some Apples and Pears by Alexander Henry to share..and do you see that box spilling over with fabric? Well, I figure if I post a giveaway of scraps also, I'll be forced to go through that box and clean it out...either find a home for it in my storage areas, or send it to you!
Please leave a comment to be entered...and if you would kindly write about it on your blog, let me know you did it and I'll happily give you 2 entries! I'll pick a winner on October 21!
