In Appreciation of Followers

April is just about over and I haven't quilted the 3 tops that were on my list.  I did sew the backings for them.

                                                                                                                                                 I prepared the small apple backing for a project that never got off the ground so I added green borders to make it big enough for one of the Tetris Quilts. I think it would make a great tablecloth, but unfortunately I don't have a table it would fit.



It is the last Saturday for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013 at So Scrappy.  I did manage to finish 3 green blocks for this month's challenge.  I am linking up to Sew Scrappy for the last green Saturday of the month.  Other participants will be displaying their green projects for April.


I completed 4 more Saw Tooth Star blocks.  Although I did not finish them during the season of Lent, I still managed to complete my goal of 40 blocks.  I will continue this project until I make a dent in my box of crumb blocks. I have a pile of HSTs waiting to be trimmed so I might have another group finished next week.

 I made one more pink block for my rainbow postage stamp blocks.  I decided that I would like to have 3 of each color so this will finish the pink group.

Over the last few months, even though I have not posted very often, I have acquired more followers.  Thank you to those of you that have been following me for a while and welcome to any new followers.  I planned to have a giveaway when I reached 100 followers.  I now have 101  so it's time for the giveaway to proceed.  If you would like to be the recipient of 8 luscious fat quarters of Laurie Wishburn fabric, please leave a comment.  The name of the winner will be drawn on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 12th.  I will ship internationally so that all of my followers may be included.

If you are participating in the Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt Challenge, please indicate that in your comment and you will receive and extra chance in the drawing.  If you are not already signed up to participate in the H2H Challenge, it's not too late.    The quilts will be donated to two very deserving charities and many generous prizes have been donated to award to participants.  The button is on my sidebar.
Sorry, this giveaway is for followers (new or old) only.

  5. You have done well, Katie, the postage stamps are coming nicely and the sawtooth colors are really neat this month. Congrats on your follower hundred (& 1) mark-that's a great goal to meet. It took me a few looks to get that the picnic table shadow was not an accent block !~! Silly eyes doing tricks on me.
