Sunday Stash #92 – Second Blogiversary Giveaway
Two years ago I started this blog with reckless hope and abandon. To say a lot has happened since then would be just a hair flick of an understatement. I won’t even begin to recount it all, as so many of you have been with me on this incredible journey. Thank you from the bottom of my achey-breaky heart for your continuous support! So let’s throw some glitter in the air already!
I had a spare string block hanging around that I made using my String Piecing Without a Foundation tutorial (I’ll show you some more of them on Monday). Instead of saving it for that inevitable Kitchen Sink quilt, I thought I’d whip up a cushion and give it to one of you! This is my way of saying thanks to all those that have kicked their fabulous shoes off at the door and decided to stay a while.
I bordered this string block with Yarn Dyed Essex, backed it in Heather Ross’s original Far Far Away II, and added a contrasting pink zipper. You’ll notice I even did some experimental quilting–just so I could impress you much! It finishes at 18″, and if my couch wasn’t already over run with cushions this one would have been hard to let go.
I’m calling it Indian Summer as I know most of you northern hemisphere folk are seeing the last minutes of summer before sliding into the crisp autumnal air. I’ve left this week’s Sunday Stash linky open, even though I’ll be showing off my contributions next week. (I’ll probably have even more fabric to show by then–oh dear!)
To enter to win my Indian Summer cushion, simply leave a comment naming something you would like to have two of! Me? I always like to have two bowls of cereal. This giveaway is open internationally, and I’ll announce the winner at next week’s Sunday Stash. Thank you again, to all of the Glitterati for, you know, staying sparkly!
