Crumb Quilt Update and a Very Nice Giveaway

All 48 centre blocks are now finished!!! wooo hoooooooooooo!!!!

I finished quilting the last 10 blocks tonight and then started the process of cutting out and prepping the 28 triangle designs!







They are now all set and ready to be quilted! The quilting on this quilt is going alot faster than I anticipated!

Along with tomorrow being "Scrap Saturday" and the last Saturday working with reds,Link it is also my birthday. I have never really been a big birthday celebrating gal. I don't make a huge deal over my birthday. I don't know why. Trevor is taking tomorrow off work and is taking me to one of my favourite restaurants for supper. I just loooooooooooove a good steak dinner, and I am looking forward to a nice big juicy steak from The Keg!!!!

Hopefully I'll get to spend a few hours in my sewing room tomorrow afternoon to work on my red strippy quilt top. I want to get the batting and backing ready to cut out, and layer. I also have to come up with a free motion quilting design to quilt on it.

I also want to share with you a great giveaway over at Leona's beautiful blog. The giveaway is for some beautiful fabrics and book from Kathy Davies Studios. Go take a peek and best of luck to you should you try your luck at the chance to win!

Well once again it is midnight and I'm ready to head out of cyber space and under the quilts for a nice long sleep! Good night to you all and chat with you soon!

Quiltingly Yours
