Give Away Quilt #1
I'm on a mission to downsize my fabric stash...I've worked in quilt shops in addition to my "real jobs"over the years and I have way too much fabric. Me working in a quilt shop is like forcing an alcoholic be a bartender. It's a dangerous place :) I also worked for a well known fabric company and made some of their magazine and pattern samples....I opted to get paid in fabric at the whole sale rate....Sure I don't need money, mountains of quilt shop quality cotton fabrics is good :) So I have too much of it. The next time we move, it's not going with me. So I'm hell bent on moving it out.
Two weeks ago, I made this super easy quilt. It's called Bloomin Peaks by Moda. Free pattern available on line.
It doesn't match the decor in our house so I decided to do something fun on Facebook....to break up the monotony and triviality that is Facebook. and do a quilt raffle among my FB friends. If they hit like or made a comment, their name went into a canning jar. There were approximately 60 people who wanted it :) Last Friday night at 9 p.m., I pulled a name :)
Yesterday I mailed it off to a retired police dispatcher friend living in IL. She has a real flare for decorating so I'm sure she will find just the perfect place or use for the quilt :)
And all I can say now is..............NEXT!!!!!
