It's Give Away and Holiday Time!

Before I swan off on holiday I thought it's time for a little give away... or two.... or three!

The first one is for everybody who leaves a comment on this post. Your name is going into the hat for this:

Hullabaloo Layer Cake by Urban Chiks for Moda SKU #32400-LC
 Hullabaloo Layer Cake by Moda

And if you blog about this give away then you'll stand to win this. Please also leave  a comment, telling me where you blogged about it.

Bali Pops Strawberry Fields

And last but not least; this one is one for my loyal followers (old and new) only. Again,  leave a message that says that you are "following" and your name will go in the draw for this:
Moda Modern Workshop 2-1/2'' Jelly Roll
 Modern Workshop Jelly Roll by Moda
The give away is open to everybody, no matter where you live.  The last day to enter will be the 9th of May and I will draw three random winners upon my return. I will get in touch with the winners, so please make sure I have a way to contact you. Good luck everybody.

The suitcases are packed and we are ready to go early tomorrow morning. We'll have a little stop in the desert (Dubai) on our way to Switzerland. At the beginning of May we'll  whiz over to Boston for DS graduation. I can't believe my baby is graduating University!
I hope to pop in here from time to time, but don't bank on it.
In the meantime, take care.

The fastest quilt ever!

Of course I had to drop everything and give it a go. I didn't use a jelly roll; mostly because I didn't want to "waste" my lovely Bliss roll, but also because I didn't want to make it quite as big. I used mostly scraps.
After I've finished sewing all the strips together it looked rather colourful, and not necessarily in a good way. I appliqu├ęd some flowers on as it's meant to be a baby quilt. And there's another reason for the flowers as I had to patch over where I had -  once again - cut into the top while snipping off stray threads. I've lost count how many times I've done that. One would think one would learn, but sadly not me ;(.

 All ready to go to a local quilt shop which is collecting baby quilts to send to Japan.

And it seems it has become a bit of a tradition of late to show you the boxes I  or my friends have made during our workshop. Last week we ditched quilting in favor of box making during our quilt group meeting. I think everyone enjoyed it and was quite pleased with the results.

We're off on our home leave (I'm still calling it that, although I consider Singapore home now) later in the week. But I'm back before that for a little give away. So watch this space.
