My friend Cyn sent me to a blog

that was having difficulty setting a Mariner's Compass into a background.  I remembered a quilt I had made a couple of years ago.

Cut a circle out of the background, 1" smaller than the circle you want to set into it.  Mark the quarters of both and match up.  Pin well around the circle and machine stitch.  I sewed with the BG fabric on top.  I have a WIP of another one that I started somewhere.  I will try to find it and post a picture.

AccuQuilt Go Cutter Giveaway

Carolyn at AccuQuilt told me I can give away an AccuQuilt Go Cutter and 3 dies.
Do you want an AccuQuilt Go and your choice of three dies? If you do own a Go Cutter, you can give your Go Cutter away and still pick three dies for yourself. Isn't this just great news?
The Go cutter makes cutting pieces faster than a rotary cutter or by hand and it is so easy to use. I'd like to make the giveaway fast, simple and easy.
You have 3 chances to win.
1. Just leave me a comment on this post and let me know which 3 dies you would like to have. Please click here to look at all the dies.

2. If you are a follower of my blog, I think you deserve a second chance to win. Please leave me another comment on this post.

3. If you blog about this giveaway, please come back with another comment for another chance to win.

The winner will be picked on next Saturday morning, October, 2nd.

I hope this sounds easy to enter. Good luck to all of you. Thank you to AccuQuilt for giving me a chance to have this wonderful Go giveaway.

Happy quilting untill next time!

A Little Things GIVEAWAY!!:

get on over to the above link for a wonderful fabric give-a-way!

Thursday, September 16, 2010


About a month ago, our home was struck by lightening.  Charlie and I were not at home, but Happy was.    She was locked in the laundry room, right under were the roof was hit.  I am sure it was traumatic for her.  Neighbors tell me the noise was horrendous.  She is fine and still adorably  rotten.

I finally found someone to check out my 2 Berninas, 200E and 240. ( Since Charlie is now quilting we need 2 machines plugged in.  I am not complaining, it's fun to share a hobby you love.)  The machines are fried. 

Yesterday, I bought the Baby Lock Elegante 2.  I was afraid to get a Bernina, there are no dealers close by anymore.  They took the dealerships away.
What a shame...I think I have every foot available, including the expensive binding feet.   I must due a complete inventory of the feet for insurance purposes.  Did you all take into account your machines and their parts for your insurance policies?  I know if this had been worse, (God forbid) and the house went bye-bye, I would not have been covered.  Check with your agent and make sure you are covered.

We also lost computers and TV's.  It is quite amazing how lightening hits.  We have the most amazing picture on one TV set, but the sound card was hit.  If anybody knows of a deaf person, let me know.  The TV is not 6 months old, it just doesn't have a voice.

I am sorry I have not posted a picture of my gift from Minick and Simpson, but my daughter "borrowed" my camera.  I will get it back on Monday and will try to remember to post it.  The square looks grand.  It's a string spiderweb.

Well, I have run, out of breath and it's time to go to sleep...see you all later.

Need a helping hand

Follow the instructions below and tell her that my blog sent you.  If your name is drawn and I sent you, we both (?) get a $50 GC to the Fat Quarter Shop.

You are not going to freakin' believe this!!!

This message just arrived in my email.

"Congratulations!  You entered our drawing for a $250 gift certificate by signing up for our email list in August and you are the winner of the AccuQuilt Gift Certificate."

Oh my gosh!  I'm dyin' here!  This is just too cool!  I don't even have a GO! yet...but I don't care...this is awesome! 

Which brings me to another subject related to accuquilt.  Recently they sent a call out on their Facebook page looking for bloggers interested in receiving a GO! and being a featured blogger. 

Well, long story short I submitted my blog and I got a response back!  They are interested in blogs with 100+ followers and I don't have that many...*insert sad face*.  BUT...they ARE interested in speaking to me further once I reach that magic number.

Here's where you 55 followers can help me!  I need 45 more followers and then I can get a GO! and I'm guessing have to opportunity to give away a GO! like you've seen on several other blogs. 

And as a incentive, I'm going to do another giveaway...a BIG giveaway!  Here's how its going to work. 
  • Tell your friends about this post in any way you like (i.e. word of mouth, email, blog, etc). 
  • Each person you send needs to become a follower and comment on this post that they are a new follower and tell me who sent them (meaning you and your blog's name).  Then both you AND that new follower are eligible for the drawing as a pair.
Each time someone you know comments and mentions you as the person who sent them, you're entered the more people comment here via you, the greater your chances. 

So I bet you want to know what you're trying to win.  Once I reach 100 followers I will use a random number generator, and the winning commenter and the person who referred them will each win a....

$50 gift certifcate from the Fat Quarter Shop compliments of me!

So there you go...will you help a gal out?

Thank you fellow bloggers from the bottom of my little quilted heart!

P.S.  If you have any questions about this giveaway, don't post them here.  Just send me a quick email and I'll get right back to you.

My winning package of "scraps" from Minick and Simpson arrived. They are beautiful! I started a spider-string quilt following instructions from Quilt-it. I don't know how to send you to the blog, will find out tomorrow and send it to all of you along with putting up a picture of the first block. It really is beautiful!

See you all tomorrow.
