I Say More is More! + a GIVEAWAY!

This Giveaway is Closed

So what does that mean?  Well, that means that we have a lot to talk about today.

First up, I am very excited to say that I am being featured (well, I will be on Friday...I'm posting a bit early.  LOL) on Sew Happy Geek!  Make sure to check out her site, because she is participating in Sew Mama Sew's May Giveaway Day, too!

What is the May Giveaway Day you ask?  Here it is from Sew Mama Sew herself:
We coordinate one day when everyone with a shop or blog can give something away. We create a master list, and we leave the lists up for several days so readers can take their time visiting the hundreds of participating blogs and shops. We also provide some structure with categories and international shipping info. Giveaway Days have been a lot of fun for everyone involved!

And of course, I decided to participate!  YAY for me and YAY for you too!  Giveaway details are at the end of this know, so that you don't do that first and completely miss the awesome stuff I have to show you.  LOL

First off, I want to share with you the quilt that I made for my mom for Christmas.  It was my first attempt at a bargello quilt and I like the way it turned out.

 My pictures aren't great, but I intend to learn how to take good ones.  Until that happens, bear with me.  :)

On the left, you can see how I quilted it.  I machine quilted it on my Pfaff.  I just echo quilted the design that I perceived.  On the right, is my "signature".  I like to hand stitch that into the back of all of my quilts.  :)  There are a couple I missed, but they reside at my mom's house, too, so I will get them eventually.

Okay, okay.  Onto the giveaway.

Prize #1 - a charm pack of Moda Freebird
