I took some time this morning to photograph the items for the give-away. In the grand scheme of give-aways, this one is not a grand and glorious one; it is mostly things that I have purchased or been given and I know I won't use. There are five give-aways, one for each 100 posts.
If you want to enter the drawing for one of the give-aways, leave a comment and indicate by number which give-away you would like to win. I'd love it if you would link my give-away to your blog. The time to Comment will end on Saturday, July 26, and winners will be announced shortly thereafter. Give-away items will be mailed early in the week of August 4.
Number One is Judy Martin's Creative Pattern Book. This absolutely wonderful book contains the pattern for Shakespeare in the Park. Somehow I have two copies, and I certainly don't need both.
Don't you want to make a Shakespeare in the Park? Here's a picture of Amy's. I certainly do, and have hopes of beginning it sometime during the coming winter.
Number Two is four patterns that I either was given or purchased. Raggedy Hearts is often made out of flannel, and I've seen it at vendors' booths at the Lancaster Show and always thought it was cute. At one time I thought I would make one. I don't think so any longer.
There are also patterns for a patriotic bargello, a sewing machine cover, and a Sudoku wall hanging. An interesting assortment.
Number Three is a head start on your own Mostly Civil War Jewel Box quilt.
There are enough HSTs (or ingredients for them) to make a dozen 16" blocks -- each block contains eight of the HSTs and eight four-patches. There are a few of the four-patch units and lots of precut CW squares for the four-patch units. You'll need to add some shirtings and possibly some additional squares and borders, if you want them. Your finished project will be this size.
I've loved having this as a leader-ender project, but two similar tops is enough. It's your turn!
Number Four is three FQs of hand-dyed/batiky fabric. I won them at a quilting day and they have been sitting on the shelf looking at me, begging to be used, and I just don't foresee that happening.
It isn't that they are badly behaved or not-nice fabrics. They are pretty and pleasant and just don't seem to go with anything else that I have. But perhaps they are exactly what you need to add a little zing to something you are working on.
Number Five is three more patterns. All are sort of folky. One is about cats.
The other two are about houses, and the one with buttons makes me think of Juliann -- I could just see her making something terrific with it.
So there you have it. Five different small-scale give-aways, one for each of my 100 posts. Leave a comment with the number of the one that interests you, and good luck!
