Giveaway Day is Here!

And the winner is.......#29

  1. My favorite teacher was my 10th grade english teacher. She was kind and funny, but not afraid to tell the truth about the world. I learned a lot from her!
I've sent an email so be on the lookout. I loved hearing all your teacher stories-it just warms my heart!

My first year to be a part of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

I had big plans for the project I was going to make but as often happens life got in the way. Instead I have for you a layer cake of Modern Workshop with some yardage. Now you can make whatever project you want.

To win leave me a comment and I will choose a winner randomly. As a teacher I get curious as to how my students view me. So in your comment tell me your favorite teacher and what you loved most about them.

The giveaway will stay open until May 25 at 5 pm.  I will update this post to include the winner. I will be shipping to U.S. only.

While you are here stay and look around. I hope you come back for more. This summer I have big plans for sewing and nothing else on my calendar. To me that is the best summer vacation I could ask for.

To find more lovely giveaways head back to Sew Mama Sew and see what they got.

I'm back!!!

As you can see it has been an entire school year since I last posted. I had every intention of writing but this year was intense and the blog got put on the back burner. Not what I wanted but I only have three days left with students so I can breathe a little better now.

For my coming back post I am joining the Bloggers' Quilt Festival. This is my first year to participate.
So without further ado, here she is:

I made this following a Quilt Along organized by John of Quilt Dad. Each week we made two blocks, each designed by a different blogger. I loved this quilt along. I started it after I had only been quilting for a few months. I learned so many new techniques and really grew in my skills. I also loved doing it along with an online community, encouraging and helping me along the way.

I had the top completed last summer but it spent the next year folded in my quilt room until I finally had time to quilt it last month. As I looked back over the pictures I had taken, I calculated it took me a year and a half to finally get it finished.

Here is my second attempt at FMQ!! I learned alot working on this baby and I love her so much. After a good washing she is so soft and cuddly. She is now resting in my guest room and waiting patiently for guests.

I so wish I could be at Quilt Market (maybe one day...) but glad to have the chance to be a part of the Bloggers' Quilt Fest. Thank you so much for stopping by. Now that summer is here I will be updating you on all the crafting I have done this many projects to show you. Don't forget to come back.
