Thursday Morning Catch Up and a Giveaway!

There are so many things to catch up on and, yes, there is a layer cake giveaway here! Really! Read on to the end and enter to win one of two layer cakes. If you are a member of the secret Twitter group, this could come in handy for the upcoming May sew along.

But first – time to catch up.

Last week I got a lovely package from Katie from Katie’s Quilting Corner. At Christmas, I was not satisfied with the granddog Christmas stockings but I felt too lazy to actually make them myself. So, I commissioned the lovely Katie to make them for me because I had seen some online that she had once made. I asked her to make them in the colorways that the granddogs are – Beagle/Bassett Hound and Shih-Tsu. They arrived last week, along with a lovely note from Katie and a charm pack of Christmas fabric. Aren’t they absolutely adorable?

And here’s the charm pack.

Katie designed the paper pieced block that I did some pattern testing for and is giving it away to her blog readers for free here. Since she has published it now, here’s my version.

Since Loki’s mom was out of town for the weekend, Loki wanted some sewing time so we finished off Clue 3 of Surrounded by Scraps. I didn’t actually press them until Sunday though.

This scrappy mystery quilt is going to be much brighter than the previous one. I left out almost all the browns. (Brown Fizz made it in because I didn’t have much and it’s Fizz!)

Now let’s talk about the giveaway! Or rather giveaways!

The first layer cake is Sophia by Maywood Studios. I got this quite a while ago and have not been able to find pictures of the whole line anywhere online but here is a picture of the layer cake.

This is a Rafflecopter giveaway. You can get extra entries by tweeting each day.

      I’m pretty sure these layer cakes will get used much more quickly if I pass them on to someone else.

  3. Jaye

  5. nonniequiltingdreams

    Either layer cake would be nice as I have never bought a layer cake …. I just was given a pattern book that uses layer cakes for making blocks… some cute patterns to try.

    I have been cutting stash fabric into layer cakes but I make my blocks 10.5 inches … cause I HAVE TO HAVE that wiggle room.

    Gretchen it looks like you have been sewing like the puppy paws …

  6. Dawn F.

    I think the first one would make some lovely pillow cases. The second one would probably go into a quilt.
