just some stuff and a giveaway

I said I would do a giveaway after finishing my graduation quilts. So here are two fat quarters and a half yard of wee play fabric by moda. I'm going to be out of town until Monday so leave a comment if you would like to participate and I will post the winner Monday sometime.
I'm all caught up on my 9 patches. I have 42 now. So I might be 2 ahead!!

This is a block for a snip, sew & send quilt thing. Where I make a block for someone and so do 11 other people is it a virtual quilting something or other? Anyway this is my block. I'm SCARED TO DEATH about this block. She wanted wonky and to me this is wonky. TO WONKY FOR ME!!! I'm afraid she will have to through it out and make a new one. This is one reason I said I'd never do one of these but it is a REALLY great challenge!! She wanted it to be like the hop, skip and jump pattern. I like her idea though of 6 1/2 x 12" blocks. Here layout is very fun!!

Last but not least I've made a few more of the Amy Butler Frenchy bags. I tried a longer handle on this one and adjusted the top part. This is the handbag version of that pattern.
This was for our PTO president. She did a fantastic job this year and I wanted to make her a little something. She liked it! So did her daughter!!:) She wanted to take it to school today!(she's in 3rd grade!) :):) Hope you have a great weekend!!
