Still In Provence

I'm still in Provence but headway is being made!



Those 20 connector blocks are finished and I just could not resist putting them up on the wall along with the focus blocks. I had to get a peek at what all this was going to look like and I'm thrilled with the preview!



First of all this is going to be a monster! Seriously huge. The setting triangles are a gorgeous red polka dot and then there are borders, oh my!

Blog  Anniversary Giveaway


Have you been drooling over those luscious  red fabrics that Connecting Threads came out with recently? They sold out almost as soon as they hit the market. I fell hard for those and I was able to score some for my very own. Here's the fun part - my blog anniversary is coming up on February 3 and I'm going to share some of these wonderful fabrics with you, my readers. I really want my followers to know how much I appreciate them.

If you would like some of this Connecting Threads red fabric all you have to do is:
A - Become a follower.
B - Leave a comment letting me know how you might use it.  

Simple. I'll be picking the winner on February 4. You can enter more than once so check back and enter whenever I post until then.
On B, I won't hold you to it just give all of us some red inspiration. (Hint: Valentines Day is coming up.)
Only my followers can win this one but I promise you'll be glad you joined this give away. 
  
Until next time,

  1. I'm so glad you specified that we wouldn't be held to our decision on how to use the fabrics; I'm having such a hard time making up my mind. I think I would try making a table runner, though--it would be perfect for a Valentine's Day table.

    1. I too am hoping for a red and white quilt this year. "If wishes were horses" as they say. I guess wishing doesn't make it so. Good luck. Dee you seem to be a "No Reply" blogger. Check out my button on the side bar to see how to get replies to your email.

  4. Your quilt is going to be lovely, as are those great reds you decided to share. I'm not sure, but I have been wanting to make a strip quilt of a square in a square. Thanks

    1. Those connector blocks took so much longer to make than I anticipated but I love the affect so it was worth it in the long run.

  9. That quilt is going to be absolutely gorgeous! I'm glad I didn't wait around and hem and haw before ordering those Connecting Threads reds -- I missed out on one that I really wanted, but the rest got here last week and are GORGEOUS. (You can leave me out of the giveaway since I've already got my own.)

    1. I too am glad I didn't wait as I usually do. Are you sure you don't want to be included in the give away? Can we ever have too much fabric?

  10. Wow on the quilt, how big is really big?? I would make a chevron quilt for my daughter if I won the reds. I was sorely tempted by the line but i guess I waited too long~!
