My friend Shannon brought up a good point – quilt alongs tend to get put in a pile to ‘finish later’. Well – we don’t want that to happen! We want to see what you come up with so Shannon of Fabrics N Quilts graciously offered to sponsor a prize for finished quilt tops! Please use at least 12 of the 20 blocks for your quilt top to qualify for the prize and it MUST included Shannon’s block – Broken Pinwheels.
Finish your quilt top by Saturday, May 25th, 2013, post it to our flickr site and be entered to win one of TWO $25 gift certificates to Fabrics N Quilts!
Once your tops are done – you probably want to have it quilted! Finish by Saturday, May 25th, post to the flickr site and be entered to win one of 2, $50 Gift Certificates for Quilting from Marcia’s Crafty Sewing & Quilting!
In the first quarter of 2012 I hosted the ‘Home Sweet Home’ Quilt Along on my blog. It’s not too late for you to make your very own House and Tree Quilt – just follow the links to the tutorials and have FUN!
Here are all of the blocks for the Home Sweet Home Quilt Along! Just click on the Block and you’ll be linked to its tutorial.
Anyone that brings a completed ‘Home Sweet Home’ Quilt to Show and Tell at the 2012 Quilt Retreat Getaway Weekend hosted by QuiltsbyBarb will receive a $10 gift certificate to the quilt shop at the retreat in honor of the 10th anniversary.
Additional qualifications for the above prize: The Home Sweet Home Quilt must include on the front at least 12 of the 16 blocks from the Quilt Along. It must also include at least one of the blocks designed by Kim Lapacek, Diane Lapacek, and Barb Raisbeck.
Thank you so much to Barb Raisbeck of Quilts by Barb for giving both of the finished quilt makers a $35 gift certificate to the retreat quilt shop! That was very generous of you and I’m sure the ladies loved it! It was great seeing the finished quilts too!
