March Craft month giveaway

Well it is here. March Craft Month

I think it is great to celebrate but I think every month is craft month for me especially if it involves buying more fabric. I got the best surprise in the mail today. My fabric from Island Batik, I guess that makes it official. I am now an Ambassador, yea. Oh the fun that will be had with all those little lovelies. I have been sewing a little. In case you hadn't seen my earlier post. I have these antique blocks I am putting together for my four daughters. I want each to be unique. I have two tops done and then I will have to decide how to quilt them. Any suggestions?

Here are pictures of 2 of my sunbonnet lady quilts. 2 more to go.



















I am going to have a give away in honor of Craft month. It will be a fat quarter bundle of Calico Days from Riley Blake that Beverly has been using to make her Farm Girl blocks. Just leave a comment about one of her blocks that you like. She will be posting off and on till she gets enough blocks for 2 quilts for her girls. I am not sure when I will pick a winner but it will be some time this month.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

  3. I would quilt the plain squares with a denser design - perhaps a spiral. Then only quilt the pieced blocks in the background area.
    I really like Beverly's "Chick and Heart" block on her quilt.

  4. I love the piggies! I like the chickens as well - just something great about quilted animal shapes I guess. Those are going to be lovely quilts.

  5. I like the 2 Sunbonnet quilts. Your daughters will be pleased. Maybe some echo quilting around the Sunbonnet Sue's. Also, maybe something (outlining or a cute wavy line) in the Dresden's.
