A Giveaway And A Sneak Peek


To celebrate one year of blogging (April 21), I want to do a giveaway. But I don’t  want to giveaway something to just one or two people.  I really want to give something to everyone who has been so kind and encouraging during this past year.

So, welcome to my effort at including everyone:


A quilt tutorial for EVERYONE to enjoy, which will be posted tomorrow.  It is called My-Size  Stars.


160 charm squares.  That’s right 160 5-inch squares so you will be well on your way to making the My-Size Stars Quilt, or anything else you want.  My box of charm squares looks like this.

I need to share the wealth.  You can select your preference of color, or mix of colors, or you can just trust your luck and get an assortment.


Some fabric napkins to match mine.  I had so much fun making some for my family that  six are to share with you and yours. Yes, the picture is of 12 napkins, but imagine that we are standing together and I hand you some and say, “Now, these  are yours,  and these are mine.”

So, here’s how it goes:

1. Leave a comment here.  Of course, I would love for you to be a follower or put me on your blog roll, or at least stop by occasionally.  And, you could let other people know about my blog and the giveaway, too. But you don’t have to.  Just a comment.  That’s all.

2. Anyone can enter. Anywhere.  Yes, Australia. Or Israel. Or even Utah.  (Some people think it might be a foreign country.)

3. First name drawn will get first choice of charm squares or napkins.  Second will get the other choice.  And I hope you will like them.  Remember that the squares are cut by very-human-me.  And the napkins are made by the same hand.  But both are done with enthusiasm, if not with perfect skills.

4. Giveaway is open until Sunday, May 1.  I will announce the winner on Monday, May 2.

Thank you again for being such a fun part of my life.  I’ll see you tomorrow with that tutorial.
