The winner is... NOVA

Please forgive me, I have not figured out how to use the random
counter on my blog yet...

So I cut all paper exactly the same size...

I write your names...

I fold it precisely, put them in a bowl and them mix around...

The winner is: NOVA! Please email me: with
your snail mail address and I will get the fabric right out to
you Monday!

Sorry about the delay- my 4 year old stared throwing up around
10am and I forgot to do the drawing.

Love, Moorea

Name labels

I was finally able to find my favorite label maker online-
It is - there are so many great labels to choose
from! They even have one that says "Quilted By," so sweet!
I really like being able to put these on little doll quilts that
are given away for charity projects, or on flannel rag quilts.

Good Morning!

Let all that I am praise the Lord;

Scrapbag Give Away-

I have had so much fun going through my stash to tidy it up-
and pull out fabrics I know I am not going to be using with
any of the MANY quilting projects I have going.
So- I am passing them on! I hope you like the scrappyness of
the whole kit and caboodle- it is a real collection of just
about everything! Most pieces are fat quaters, but there are
a few larger, and some are smallish scraps. Winter is the
perfect time to cut and replenish crumbs/strips for scrap
quilts. If you have not seen Bonnie from Quiltville's Scrap
User System, see it HERE.

To enter- just leave a comment telling us the system you use
to keep track of fabrics that are smaller than fat quarters-
I guess crumbs/ strips.

Contest Ends in two weeks, October 31st! NOVA Won! email me

Love, Moorea

Some days are better than others, and while it was a pretty good
day from all accounts, I just felt upside-down inside. I REALLY
needed to get out- so I escaped the madhouse this evening and
flew to the copy shop to make a bazillion copies of my Quilt
so I could sit and organize my record book. I have been
shoving photos of quilts in the binder and have not gotten
around to writing anything about them- and we all know that after
a few years and a few more quilts made & given goes by- we forget
all those little details that should be documented! I was able to
sit next door at Wendy's without interruption to record & stuff
page protectors to my heart's content! It was just what I needed
and I sure do feel better!

Please, please, please, print out a copy of the Quilt Record,
make copies and start recording your quilts! This Minnesota Quilters site is helpful.

You'll need:

Pretty Binder
Page protectors
Copies of Quilt Record
Photos of your quilts
Favorite pen
Double stick tape

Read-up on documenting HERE

Fabric Give Away

I finally found a pic of the quilt I made for my brother Matt using this
fabric. It is called "Camoflauge Courthouse Steps."

Hello, I have been cleaning off my project shelf and came across this
bunch of fabric that I was going to use for ANOTHER quilt for my
brother Matt! But, he just got married and I decided that the LAST
thing I want to do is make another strange quilt his poor wife
will need to live with- so... I am giving all this fabric away!
Besides, I promised them a picnic quilt with fabric she has picked,
so I need to get to making it!

Please leave a comment as to what you think you'd use it for.
If you have no idea, just NEED to have it- well then, put that down!
ENDS in 2 weeks, OCT 14th.

OK! The Winner is...Nance! I was reorganizing my fabric and
found even more of this funky fabric to add to it, so you are
now getting 1.7 lb. Nance email me your snail mail address!

Thank you all for entering! Come back soon as I am going to
have another fabric giveaway next week! It will be scrap bag
fabric; brights and novelties.

Love, Moorea
