 If you're a collector of fat quarters, you know they're colorful, inspiring-and often too tempting to pass up. But what can you do with those fun little fabrics once they're yours? We've got your answer! Choose from eight wonderful quilt plans that show you how to successfully use those addicting 18"" x 22"" pieces of fabric. With just six coordinating fat quarters and a background fabric, you can stitch up a fabulous quilt top easy enough for any quiltmaker. Includes: Quick-to-stitch quilt patterns, including Broken Bricks, Houndstooth, Roman Stripes, and Woven Ribbons-plus an exciting mystery quilt. Step-by-step instructions for rotary-cutting fat quarters easily and efficiently. Ideas for enlarging your quilts with additional fat quarters.

 I have this great book by M'Liss Rae Hawley and will give it away to one luck winner that leaves me a comment about what they like about this time of the year. If you post about my giveaway you get a second chance and if you become a follower or are currently a follower you get another chance. Just let me know in your comment.

It has quit raining and the flowers are amazing. Spring is such a beautiful time of the year. I love the weather and the smell of grass and blooming lilacs and cherry blossoms. Here are a few flowers from my yard. Enjoy today and spend time with those you love.

  2. Sandals are what I like best about this time of year. My feet are always so ready for the freedom from closed toe shoes.

  3. I love finally being able to open the windows during the day, for the fresh cool air. Smelling the fragrances of the budding flowers, especially the Easter flowers. Thanks for offering this generous giveaway. ;-> Toni Anne

  4. I've heard your area is getting great weather, in the 70's. Enjoy. BTW - I met M’Liss Rae Hawley at the CHA Trade Show, a few years back. She is a very nice woman. I know she is in poor health, but haven't heard an update in awhile. Hoping she is getting stronger and soon feeling 100%. Fun giveaway, but please don't enter me. I was happy to share your giveaway on Facebook and Twitter. BTW - I also love all the beautiful colors that come out in Spring, like a special reward from Nature after Winter.

  5. My favorite thing about this time of year is being able to open the windows and enjoy the breeze. The air always smells so clean. My second favorite thing is thunderstorms. I love the power they have with the lighting and thunder. Where I live there's almost always a rainbow in the sky at the end of one. Rina

  16. Although I would NEVER call myself a 'gardener' I DO love to watch the buds pop open and everything come back to life! And you sure can't underestimate a gorgeous sunny day...even if you are 'stuck' in your sewing room quilting the day away! Love it!:o)))
    Thanks for the chance!

  20. I love sitting on my screened in porch doing hand work this time of year. I have trouble coordinating fabrics, so my go to is always bundles. Thank you for the giveaway.

  21. I love the tilled black fields. The winter turns them into a bland gray looking plot of land and then the farmer comes along and tills the field and makes it into a majestic black field and then----it will turn green when the sprouts start coming up. The beauty of nature.

  22. There is a lot of birds singing outside our bedroom window early in the morning this time of year and their happiness is contagious.

  42. Spring is my favorite season by far, but the last few days it has kept me trapped inside the house because of my allergies. Tree pollen is at a seriously high level here. So, I admire the tulips and blossoming trees from inside. It's so nice to see life again after such a long winter in Iowa.
