Layout Instructions & a Give Away

I'm up burning the midnight oil to bring you the layout instructions for Hello Sun!  I just snapped a couple of pictures on my cell phone of the process.

Assembly line style to move things along a little quicker...

Progress...then a quick snack of homemade sweet potato fries.


Back to work and things are coming together nicely!

Finally finished and no one was around to hold up the final project resulting in a quick fuzzy picture. I should have called Marion, she makes a great quilt model.  

I'll have to take some better pictures, but not at 1:00 am.  Oh, my, I need to get to bed.

On with the give away...
Michael Miller has sponsored our give away with two charm packs of Cotton Couture!
One Winner will be chosen randomly from the finished Hello Sun quilts posted in the flickr group. (You don't have to use my quilt layout). Another winner will be chosen from the comments left on this post. What could be better than free fabric from Michael Miller?

The winner for the drawing from comments will be announced next week. The winner for the quilt will be at the end of the month. I can't wait to see your finished quilts!

  29. I wanted to let you know that I went down a bunny trail and found a link at krislovesfabric to your cute patterns. She indicated that you might take them down soon. Like I don't have enough patterns and plenty of quilts in my head, but this is adorable. With three grandsons, I could not resist downloading the patterns. I wanted you to know that I think that are cute and appreciate. I think folks probably download them and never take the time to let the designer and the people who take time to put their efforts forth to help others know its appreciated. So, in a word THANKS!
