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.
