orphan block giveaway and a quilt



here is the barter quilt. it was soooooooooo very fun to stipple because of it's simplicity!! i like it better than i thought i would. i like it when that happens. the backing is just a simple pretty grey with a lighter grey polka dot. bound it with a green solid. i think it green grass by kona. i'm not usually good with the details of a quilt. :(


in the new house one of my frustrations is my pictures. i'm not a photographer as it is but then i don't have any light carpeting or flooring or anything. it seems like everything looks better on white. well it hit me i had some poster board and thought that i would lay the orphan blocks on the poster board to hopefully help you get a better idea of what you could get.
these first four actually 5 (the whirlygiggle has two of the same)-two were going to be for the barter quilt then i looked back at a picture of the quilt she wanted and saw that i was going in the wrong direction so i don't need them. the other two are just extras.

i started this log cabin quilt about 2 years ago. i don't see it happening.

the red and aqua square was from a tutorial and then i started three blocks for a pink and green log cabin that also won't happen and a bear paw or claw quilt that definatly won't happen. if you would like to win these 14 random block just leave a comment and i will pick a winner on wednesday night/thursday morning. have a great day!

  3. I'm not sure I should enter this since I don't need any more projects, but your blocks are fun. I especially like the red, white, and blue blocks.

  5. Your blocks are all darling. I have a few orphans also and could put them all together for a sweet sampler quilt.

  6. I definitely agree with Tanzie that each block has its own piece of story. By the way, all of your blocks are pretty interesting! I'm excited for the person who's going to win these pretty giveaways. Take care! :)

  12. You know, I have the same problems with my photos so I went and bought a white quilt (quilted with modern straight lines) and I'm now using that as my background. I noticed a DEFINITE improvement in my color...I got the tip from another quilter's blog! ;-D Best $25 I've ever spent (Ross or Marshall's)
