A Little Something Noteworthy & Giveaway.

The giveaway is now closed.

I started blogging a year ago and thought this would be the perfect time for a celebratory giveaway!

Table runner made with Noteworthy fabric
Cushion made with Noteworthy fabric.....border Heather Bailey Nicey Jane
One of my favorite purchases of 2012 was a charm pack tumbler template that I bought from Cheryl at Brazosbottomquilts on Etsy. I just finished a tumbler table runner and a pillow from a charm pack of Noteworthy using the template. What a breeze to use and so little waste!  Cheryl has generously offered to send the winner of the giveaway their own template! Thank-you, Cheryl!!


I used Aurifil 50 wt thread for piecing and for the first time tried a 28 wt variegated thread for the straight line quilting on the pillow. The 28 wt shows up very nicely. One of the many features of Aurifil thread is that it is virtually lint free! And a spool lasts a long time. 

BTW: Noteworthy just arrived at Fat Quarter Shop.
Aurifil recently sent me a package of thread goodies to share so I'm adding some to the giveaway package! 



And lastly, as part of the giveaway....a Charm pack of Gypsy Girl! I'm working on a quilt from a jelly roll of Gypsy Girl. It's such a cheerful fabric line.


The giveaway is open to all including international friends! Leave a comment to enter. If you are a follower, feel free to leave an extra comment. The giveaway will close Monday, January 14th.


Thanks so much for stopping by. See you soon. xx

Oh I love Noteworthy! I was going to buy some charm packs, but wasn't sure what to do with them, but I love what you have made! And yes, so little waste with that template, I'm off to see what other templates she sells :) Such a lovely giveaway, thanks for the chance :)
