Wonkaholic and Blogiversary #1 Giveaway

January 2013 is almost over and I have a few things to catch up here.  A finish, a big win, and a celebration giveaway!

My Wonky Log Cabin quilt, a former UFO, is finished.  I call it "Wonkaholic" because this quilt only came about because of my addiction to making blocks for The Hurricane Sandy Quilt Drive over at Quilting Gallery.  The tutorial for making the blocks is here.  Watch out, making the block is addictive.  It measures 54" x 66".  The quilting was inspired by a post from Crazy Mom Quilts

I finished the binding today, sewing between clients and while color processed at work.  I knew I would run out of day light before I could take my usual pictures at home, so these pictures were taken at the salon.  My co-workers think I'm nuts.  Their input was that the back was as pretty as the front.  Too bad the back is a cheater...lol  Now I can join the party at A Lovely Year of Finishes 2013 for January.

January is the month of my Blogiversary!  I have had so much fun blogging and can hardly believe it's been a year.  Jennifer over at Glinda Quilts celebrated hers recently and I was the winner of her giveaway.  Look at what arrived in my mailbox this week.  What a great package - complete with a pants bag she made just for me with a label inside.  I will cherish this from my new blogging friend.  She has way better pictures of my bag here.  Thank you, Jennifer!

A beautiful pants bag, and lots of fabric and goodies


Giveaway
 
I'm giving away a Moda Jelly Roll in honor of my Blogiversary.  It is Good Morning by Me & My Sister Designs.

I love wonky and have been having a great time making wonky stars lately. They are very addictive, too! I hate to be greedy, but that jelly roll pretty much took my breath away. Too much? It's true! How pretty is that? I want it!

I love your quilt! And they are right, the back is just as pretty as the front. I would never have known it was a cheater print without you saying, you should have just pretended it was all your own hard work ;)
