**WINNERS ANNOUNCED! See bottom of this post!**
Hello all! About a year ago I was asked by the nice ladies from Quiltmaker magazine to submit a block design for Volume 2 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks. What an honor!! This was way before Playdate and Sanctuary were out, so I used Flora & Fauna and designed this sweet little block for the magazine. It's a simple block by most quilters' standards but I added my stamp on it by adding a strip of selvedge to the center piece. You know how much I loves me some selvedge!
It wasn't until last week that I learned that my name made it to the cover. WOOOHOO! Yup, that's me... second name from the bottom... check out the company I'm keeping these days!
I've been paging through the magazine in my spare time (cough, cough) and drooling at the talent within these pages! WOW! My block design, which I've named Flutter, can be made up into a full size quilt, a wall hanging or a table runner by just repeating it several times or mixing in other block designs within this magazine. I turned mine into a pretty cute pillow because, well... I *heart* pillows and it would appear I have a secret mission to fill our house up with fluffy, plushy goodness. I finished my pillow with a selvedge envelope closure just like these. Easy-peasy!
This collector's issue goes on sale November 16th but you have a chance (no, THREE chances!) to win your very own advance copy right here! Just leave me a comment and this Friday the 12th I will randomly pick three winners. I have 2 copies of mine to give away and the good folks at Quiltmaker magazine have offered a third copy for another lucky winner! In addition, one of the winners will also receive HALF YARD CUTS OF ALL THE FABRICS FEATURED IN THIS BLOCK! That's enough to make several of these blocks... you may even get a table runner or a wall hanging out of it. :)
Don't forget to leave a way to contact you if you win. An email address or clickable link is sufficient.
***11/13/10 -- CONTEST IS CLOSED! READ BELOW FOR WINNERS!***

Ok I've probably entered every drawing you've had in the last year and nothing. I love the block and the fabrics, it would be so fun to win since I'm getting ready to embark on trying to make a quilt for my chickies, I'm not so optimistic but I know they will like it no matter what, for a while anyway ;) Would be so nice to learn some techniques and get started with that fabulous fabric!

OMG...a new magazine and new fabrics?!? I would think I'd died and gone to heaven! Surely that is what heaven will be! Love the block and expecially love the envelope enclosure on your pillows!
