Welcome! Merry Christmas and happy whatever holiday you celebrate. It's Christmas at my house so let's kick the season off with some giving.
Before I do the giveaway I want to say thanks to the over 50 quilters who responded to my call for help yesterday and no one, (a tribute to how nice you all are) said "what the heck were you thinking putting that layout together?" which was what I was saying to myself. What Regi said about all of us is so true, "I would almost guarantee that each of them would see something a bit different about the quilt and have a different favorite part or a different way to “fix” it."
I appreciate all of you who took the time out of your day to help. Michaela actually drew a plan, scanned it and sent it, Charlie sent a picture and is thinking about it at work today and I had loads of emails back and forth from several of you. Kinda shows how much we all love quilting.
I have tried many options and I'm still working on it, but now I have so many more ideas...many of your suggestions spurred other ideas of my own. I think I may have to put all your names on the label. So, for all of you I'm having our own little private giveaway. I put all your names in a hat and I'll draw a winner on Saturday for something just for you. I would draw right now, but I have to make something!
And now to the real purpose of this post, Giveaway Day! I'm giving away a little Santa's village quilt. The winner will receive their choice of one of these 3 quilts. I hope to have them finished by Saturday, so that's when the giveaway will end. I'll post the winner at noon, central time.
Here's the deal. I love Christmas and I love to decorate. I've gotten the boxes out of the basement and I've started. Your task is to guess how many Christmas trees will I use to decorate my house. The trees have to be 3 dimensional and ornaments don't count. Everything else is fair game. If more than one person guesses the correct number, the first commenter with the correct guess will win their choice. (Who knows, maybe we could have a few more winners, maybe some fabric? So, guess away! Have fun!
EDITED TO ADD: A few have emailed and asked do they have to be live trees...nope...only 3 dimensional and international folks...of course you are welcome! I've put together some (actually 6) 1 yard fabric bundles(2 prints from the Kansas City Star history prints and a coordinating solid) to give away too, so don't give up! Let's keep having holiday fun!!!!
