A Long Overdue Giveaway!


I have a little giveaway for you - just a little something to say "Thank You" for following along with my days at Taylorsoutback.


All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog posting. The winner will be chosen randomly next Sunday, March 27th and posted on that day's blog. (Be sure to leave a way to contact you if your name is drawn!)

So here 'tis...
This fabric covered box is perfect for any quilter or other needlework artist. Lots of little nooks and crannies to stash needles, threads, little scissors, etc. Or it could be used to store secret little treasures...A couple of years ago, I made one for myself and now she has a twin sister who needs a home...yours is the one with the little red tassel...
Being part of the blogging community has impacted my corner of the world. "Meeting" other quilters, artists, gardeners, chefs and decorators has opened up so much inspiration and encouragement. The quality and content of writing I have discovered on your own blogs has enriched my life so much. Through you I have been introduced to new techniques in quilting, music I have grown to love, books that have become favorites, gardening advice so sweetly shared and online friendships that are treasured. Thank you!


Wrapping up this posting with what has been accomplished this week...
Block #7 in the Beyond the Cherry Tree project

Block #12 in the Civil War Quilt project 
Louisiana
Thank you so much for being here, Dear Reader, and don't forget to leave that comment! 
Have a good week everyone...

There are so many creative quilters out there in blog land. And they share their love of quilting in so many ways. Thanks for the sweet giveaway. The covered box is awesome!

Hi Pat,

Love the post. Blogging is fun, although I spend less time sewing than I used to. I am doing Civil War quilt along too! You didn't say whether you are sending overseas, so I presume not. It would be too hard to post the box. They are both lovely.

Jenny said...

What fun! That is a super creative box!

Love the cherry tree block!

Thanks for the chance!

Dee said...

Pat - YOU win the prize for being the first to use some "nervous-sticks" fabric in one of your projects! (See #12 block above, then visit Cottonopia blog for more examples of this interesting fabric design element).
I'm also here to testify that Pat's Violet Jelly is not only lovely to look at, but delicious too....it pays to live in north-central Wisconsin! : )

Deborah said...

Mimi said...

Yes, I think blogging has been the best thing for my quilting. I get more from blogs than from any magazine or guild, it's fabulous. I'm loving the BTCT blog as well, keeping me motivated! What a lovely giveaway, thanks for the chance!

Have you gotten your hands unstuck from the glueing on that lovely box???...I too have been the recipient of the violet jelly in the past...guess we will have to wait a few more weeks for the next batch to be collected with the predicted weather! See you soon I hope! Jan M.

quilting was never so much fun as the internet has made it. So many truly NICE people out there! I would never have attempted applique without the encouragement and tips from some online friends.

Sign me up for the box, I have JUST the spot for it!

(I am NOT peeking at any more of your posts, I am easily misled!)

This is just the cutest little box ever I would love to have it.
I see you are doing the Civil War quilt. I had plans to do it but just too many irons in the fire right now.
I really love the quilt in your header.

Your boxes are beautiful, there's a lot of work in them. Your blocks are wonderful too. Blogging has changed my life in some very surprising lovely ways, it's nice that it seems to have done the same for you.

And some lucky person is going to win this BEAUTIFUL handcrafted keepsake. Now how is that for a giveaway?
Love the blog, each new post, a new and exciting insight. I must dig out my UFO Pioneer Quilt Blocks and finish these, your Civil War Blocks reminded me of my yet unfinished blocks. Love those fabrics your using.
