Quilt Up For Grabs

Funny thing about Blogger; you never know how your photo will be turned.

This is a quilt I made many moons ago. There is some embroidery, hand quilting, a few big prim stitches and even some staining to obtain that primitive old look.

Here is a bit of a closer view. My quilt is up for grabs! Please spread the news on your blog and do ask if they spotted this giveaway at yours to be so kind as mention it in their comment to me. (secret giveaway gift here for you) If your not a follower than become one. You never know when the next little quilt will be up for grabs.
Winner will be announced on Sunday, June 20th here on my blog. It is up to you to claim the quilt. (pays to be a follower) I figure by Monday evening if winner doesn't come forward the next name will be chosen. I'd like the quilt to be in the mail to its new home in time for the 4th of July.
Oh and how will the name be chosen? - - simply a name pulled from the hat!

Sherry said...

Hi I have been in the middle of a swap that I'm doing for the month of July. Being Canadain I have been trying to to get a UAS and a Canadian flag together. The trick I have to get them both on a 12 in block Very tricky.So I have been looking at lots and lots of flags quilts but I have to say yous is the best one I have seen.This is a wonderful style. I would not use it like I should but I have a USA friend and she would go crazy over it. So if I did win I would love to be able to give it to someone that would go out of her mind with it. If I don't win I would love to make one for her.Thanks for the great idea

Jacque said...
