Look at My Newest Quilt!!!

I picked up my newest quit, from my long-armer, late last week.  Today was the first day of nice sunlight (and a dry fence), so I was finally able to take pics of it.

What do you think?  It's a king-sized (100" x 100").  It's a "spider web" pattern.  There are hundreds of strips of fabric in this quilt.  There are8 triangles in each quilt block.  There are 25 blocks on the top.

I had 4 left-over blocks. so I decided to piece the back of the quilt using the extra blocks.

The acorns and leaves were the quilted pattern.  It has not been bound yet (which is why you see the "white" around the edges; that's the batting that will be trimmed away once I've added the binding.)

I had so much fun making this quilt, that I'm going to have to make a smaller version (after the new year) and offer it for sale.

Wow! I can't Believe I Won...

I received word, yesterday, that I was the winner for last week's "Great Finds" contest.  This is a free, weekly, contest that anyone can enter...there are only 2 conditions to enter the contest:

1.  Join the free networking site:  "On Fire For Handmade".  Join the group "Great Finds" and sign-up for each weekly themed contest.

2.  You must have a handmade shop...doesn't matter if it's a personal website or one of the many popular online selling sites.

Anyway, back to my AMAZING prize:  a $15 gift certificate to the Mineral Love vegan make-up shop.  Tricia, owner, has shops on Etsy and Made It Myself.

I have heard nothing but positive things about the make-up from this wonderful artisan.  I chose the "Ready Set Go: Vegan Finishing Powder".

I wanted to show off a few of her other items that are available in her shops.  She has more listings in her Made it Myself shop.  Tricia will make a private listing if you wish to purchase, on Etsy, something that isn't already listed there.

I can't believe how reasonable her prices and shipping costs are!!!  You really need to go by both of her shops and see these amazing things for yourself.
