Quilting Gallery turns 5, you get 6 fabrics
The Quilting Gallery is celebrating the big 0-5 this week, and we bloglanders are all coming together to shower YOU with gifts. First you receive the gift of discovering my blog. A gift which will truly keep on giving should you return, and if you ask me, you should definitely return. I have some fantastic new events coming up in 2013, kicking right off in January with a new group quilt project followed by "Drop and Give Me Twenty", the web's biggest UFO busting blog event as proclaimed by me. If you have even one UFO in your pile you'll want to check out the details. If you have only one UFO, though, it is debatable if you can consider yourself a real quilter, you know, so get to sewing! It is our duty as quilters to leave piles of fabric and half finished quilts for our children and grandchildren to find homes for someday.
And if that is not enough for you, you might even win my prize, a set of six 1/3 yard cuts of these yummers Christmas fabrics from Northcott's Stonehenge line.
Aren't they delish? I used them in the cover quilt for a pattern I am working on and they feel as good as they look. I can barely part with some of these leftovers, but for the sake of you and your happiness, I will brush away a tear as I ship them off to lands unknown. Parting is such sweet sorrow.
To enter, please sign up to be a follower of Quilting Hottie Haven and then tell me in a comment on this post how many UFOs you currently have in your stash (approximate number is fine, I am not about to ask you to actually count and even if I did, how would I know you actually did it? It's all in the name of trust, hotties. But I will say if you tell me you have 50 or more I might be skeptical that you padded it a tad.), and which one you would most like to finish in the near future. And by near future I mean "before you go to the great quilt studio in the sky".
Good luck, and happy blog hopping!
Edited to add: Holy flipping UFOage, hotties! I no longer think you are padding it at close to 50 since there are so many of you in that category, but I do think quilters seem to suffer from a very specific form of ADHD wherein we must start three projects while in the process of working on one. Yet another reason to join us in February!
