Stash Give Away

I mentioned last week that I had been cleaning and found items that had accumulated in the sewing room...so I would like to share them with you over the next few weeks.  There are some items that due to their size would cost more for shipping overseas, so would be for the US followers only.  I do have some smaller items that I will gladly ship worldwide.  Please remember that size is not everything and I may have what you have always wanted so let's have some fun!
I don't like to follow rules so I will keep it simple. 
Leave a comment on this post!
I will draw a name on Saturday the 18th.
A Sajou box.  
  I think it would make a great thread box, what would you use it for?
 This drawing for shipping in US.
Good Luck.

Last month I started Jo's Little Women Club 2012.
I love quilts, but have very little experience making them.
The very first thing we did in class was show and tell and I began to wonder if I was in way over my head!  I tried to look on calmly at one of the quilts another student had just completed a lovely hand appliqued quilt, everyone had some thing wonderful to show, I just tried to sink lower in my chair.
The teacher is wonderful and I feel like I learned alot...but remember I need to learn everything, so much that the teacher asked to see me after class "Oh no what did I do"?!
She was very nice and was really just trying to bring me up to speed so I would not be completely lost when I got home.   So here is my poor little quilt.  We were supposed to use some stripes, but let me say don't look too closely as I have no idea how to make those lines completely straight.  I'm hoping that when I wash it after quilting it will not be so noticeable. 
I hope it will pass inspection.

One more item of news. Have you seen the new Spring Primitive Quilts and Projects?
There are so many great projects in this magazine that it is hard to decide which one to start first.

I have two extra copies for sale, if you are interested they are $9.00 each with free shipping in the US please let me know if you would like me to send one your way.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and get lots of stitching done.

Love the little Jo Morton quilt you've made. If this is your first attempt at quilt making you did a wonderful job. I hope you enjoy you class as much as I enjoyed my Jo Morton Club classes.

I would keep my antique lace pieces in the Sanjou box.

Your quilt is beautiful. I thought it was as antique because I looked at the pictures before I read the narrative. I just finished a two day class with Kathleem Tracy so I am really digging the doll quilts. Keep up the good work, a lot of the charm of old quilts to many is the imperfections that you find in them. I often purposfully put them into my quilts, like using small pieces to 'piece' a block.

I think your qult is adorable! Congratulations!! I am teaching my daughter to quilt and when she was worrying about how she was doing, I brought out some of my older quilts so that she'd see my enthusiasm far outweighed my skill! It still does, actually. Just sit back and enjoy yourself and you'll learn and get better as you go along.

I always enjoy your blog and your quilt is great, you are doing wonderfully! I too love boxes so would like to be in your drawing. I love your cat, I have one that looks exactly like yours and mine likes the same things yours does, like drinking out of the sink with the water running.
We enjoy him alot.
