Binding on the Nine Patch Surprise and a Giveaway Announcement

I finished the binding on the Nine Patch Surprise last night so it is all ready to go to Las Vegas to serve as a model for others making the same quilt.  I will be teaching this quilt one day of the retreat my sister and I are going to.  She will be teaching another day and I have the fabric picked out for her project. The quilt starts as nine patches and then the bright color strips are added.  I used large pieces of the four fabrics for the back and decided to use them to make a scrappy binding.  I really like how the binding turned out.  I had to change colors of thread with each change of binding color but it looks good.

About the giveaway – I am approaching two blogging milestones.  This post is number 992 and I plan on having a BIG giveaway at post 1000.  Be looking for it.  I haven’t decided exactly what to give away but I promise it will be worthwhile.

I am also at 92 followers and plan to have a follower giveaway when I reach 100.  Only followers will be eligible for this one. 

More information will be coming on each of these giveaways.  I can’t wait.
