100th Post Giveaway….(ok, 109th)

Dolce Giveaway

I mentioned a few posts ago that I had hit the 100 post mark on my blog. I really can’t believe I’ve had that much to say, but it’s been great creating, sharing and getting to know some really talented people. It’s time to celebrate!

You might remember the gorgeous selection of Dolce fabric I bought a couple months ago. It’s time to share the love. The winner of this giveaway will receive a sampling of every fabric you see above. Most pieces are around 11″ x 26″. A couple are a little smaller…one is an entire yard. Plenty of fabric to create something amazing!

All you need to do is leave a comment – you can tell me something about yourself, let me know what you would like to do with the fabric, anything you’d like. Comments close Wednesday evening, May 5th at 6:00pm. I’ll randomly select a winner on Thursday, May 6th. Good luck!

Comments are closed – good luck everyone!

March: Quilting Bee Block

Sew New to Me Virtual Quilting Bee March Block

Back in the swing of things for the Sew New to Me Virtual Quilting Bee, March was Corey at Little Miss Shabby’s month. (If you are a fan of Flea Market Fancy, you *must* go check out the header on her blog!) Corey sent us a beautiful palette of fabrics – blue, green, gray, white. She asked us to make blocks using triangles and squares. Pinwheels, stars, whatever we wanted. She wanted attention to small details and piecing.

I’ve never made a block like this and it was really fun. It is certainly a lesson in precision and patience. I have a lot of respect for those that make entire quilts like this!

I added in a little Dolce fabric, as it matched perfectly! And you wouldn’t believe I used to be good at math. Heck, 1/3 of my degree is math…but I calculated wrong and ended up needing to add a border to make the square 12.5″. I think it looks cute though. :) I told Corey she could take it off if it’s not her vision though!
