Pay-It-Forward

Please click here to go see the Pay-It-Forward (PIF) gift to Carol I quilted this past week. Carol hired me to quilt her top. Well, she is also one of my PIF gals so I thought it would be fun to just quilt her top as the PIF. Carol can now spend her longarming cash on some more gorgeous fabric. (hear that Carol?)

I'm feeling generous. Would you be interested in another giveaway? It is nothing fancy and I still don't know exactly what I'm giving away. It will likely be something out of my own stash that I don't use. I've got stuff and ideas! Free is good right? Here is what you have to do: Visit Carol's blog post to see her PIF and come back here and tell me about it. That's it. If you'd like I'm sure Carol would love a comment too!

This giveaway ends Wednesday evening. The winner's name will be posted here on Thursday so you must come back to see if it is you! Good Luck!!

How sweet you are! Carol's quilt is beautiful. As always, you did an excellent job on the quilting. The pictures of Buster just crack me up. Sitting there on the quilt like the two of you made it just for him!

SandyQuilts said...

Buster is adorable and needs a matching doggie collar. Very pretty quilt and of course the quilting is super.

Last year I had a giveaway .. choice of a baby quilt or I'd quilt one for the person. The winner took the quilt I made. It was fun.

Throw me into the pot, please.

onlymehere said...

The quilt is beautiful and I love the feathering you did on it. The whole idea of PIF is really a wonderful thing. I did something similar about a year ago only it wasn't from my sewing blog but my private one and I loved finding just the right gift for my ladies. I left her a comment and am glad to have found another wonderful blog to start visiting! Cindy

Absolutely gorgeous quilting and a beautiful quilt! I love those Wuthering Heights fabrics. What a generous PIF!!

QuiltSue said...

Another Mary-Masterpiece. It's lovely. The fabrics are great, and the fact that I live in "Wuthering Heights" country in England, does not mean I might be biased! No, not at all!

Tozz said...

Beautiful, beautiful quilting job. I love the colors of the quilt too! Great job all around. Buster sure does look bored, but thrilled that he has a 'new' quilt. ha ha!

StitchinByTheLake said...

The feather stitching is just beautiful and I love her choice of fabrics. blessings, marlene

Deb said...

Wow! You girls give really BIG Pay-it-Forward gifts!!! And Carol is in the process of making a quilt for someone else! Amazing! I, too, loved the feather stitching; the quilt is beautiful.

Cindy said...

Mary, I think you already know how much I love the quilt - but have to say, I think Buster is pretty cute too. LOL

What four-legged friend doesn't love a new quilt - just like us two legged friends. LOL

Sam said...

Carol's quilt has just the colours I love and the quilting looks great too. Regards from Albany, Western Australia. Sam (Sandra) s.downes@murdoch.edu.au

Carrie P. said...

I knew you would come up with a fun idea for a giveaway. Who couldn't use some free fabric?
So nice of you to do the quilting for free for Carol. It is so pretty sitting on the back her couch with little Ol' Buster sitting on it. The last picture is cute where she says he bored. I think he just wants her to stop taking his picture so he can take a nap.

Blogless me said...

I like the idea of PIF a lot and how lucky Carol was to be the recipient of such a generous one! It would be great to see more of the quilting on it. I hope she'll show more of it later.

Lisa said...

Carol's quilt is beautiful and what a cutie Buster is! You do such beautiful work.

Sherri said...

What a wonderful pay it forward! I love the Wuthering Heights fabric in her quilt...and now her quilt has a wonderful history as well!

The quilt is wonderful and your quilting is great! I think Buster has claimed it as his quilt. What a great PIF you did, and think it's a wonderful idea. Thanks for the chance on your giveaway.

Carol's quilt is wonderful and you did a great job too.I'm a little envy for such a great PIF , but I live on the other side of the world.

Very sweet of you! A perfect PIF. Carol's quilt is adorable and so is her doggie :)

Very generous PIF, Mary. Carol is thrilled and so is Buster. As I told Carol...'it's a dog's life!'

PunkiePie said...

I commented on Carol's blog earlier. What beautiful quilting you did and what a generous PIF gift!

Kim said...

Mary, what a wonderful thing you are doing. Too bad PIF is not as contagious as the flu. I have tried to share this with others. Don't do something with expectations, just do it because you can! The world could use more NICE!!! As always your quilting is fantastic. Enjoy Carol!

Stina said...

A perfect PIF gift.. just lovely quilting... and I got an idea what to make with my three charmpacks of Wuthering Heights..lol...

Awesome job on the quilting. She chose some really nice fabrics for the quilt. Buster sure took to it. Seems he needs a smoking jacket to match.

Wendy said...

You are so sweet, what a awesome way to do a PIF and offer another giveway. Carol's quilt is so cute with Buster showing if off.
Have a good day.

Isn't it great that we quilters are the most generous people with our time, talents and fabric.
Lovely fabric line. I have a set of FQ's I cannot bear to cut in to!
Beautiful quilting. I love the feathers. I guess Buster has claimed the couch and the quilt!
You are so very talented and generous.
Hope I can win!
