Lorna Mahon of Sew Fresh Quilts had a quilt-along of her quilt pattern, Dog Gone Cute.
Many bloggers participated in the quilt-along by making one or more blocks, and blogging about their completed project using these blogs. One of them was Carol from Just Let Me Quilt. Carol made a beautiful quilt with black, white and gray dogs on a red background, but she did more than just provide inspiration. She also offered a prize. And I won a gift certificate from her favorite store, Quilt Taffy. Thank you so much Carol!
For my gift certificate, I chose the book Farm Girl Vintage by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet. Lori also makes sweet blocks that are shown in quiltalongs around the blogosphere.
This is a spiral bound book that has 15 blocks in 6" and 12" inch sizes, and some setting blocks like a barns, silo and tractor, and some mix and match setting quilts. I think I am going to make mine stand alone quilts. I am going to see if I can find a way to put them on a scrapbook stand that I have. I figure that they will be quicker to make than bigger quilts, take up less space, and I can switch them out throughout the year.
So thank you to Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts, Carol of Just Let me Quilt, Corrie from Quilt Taffy, Lori of Bee in My Bonnet and the United States Postal Service for setting up the circumstances for me to have this book in my hot little hands!
