BABY BEE AND A GIVEAWAY

*********give-away is now closed



Baby Bee is finished. Ever since I saw this quilt, I have wanted to try circle quilting. I'm so happy with how it turned out    : )




I used my walking foot and the quilting guide attachment to do circles about 1" apart.


Baby Bee got pebbles around him so I didn't have to do tiny circles.


My quilt finished about 33" square. Perfect for a stroller or on the floor.

Now for the giveaway.........

As a hexagon fanatic, I was loving it when Moda came out with these hexie pre-cuts! Katja, the owner of Katjas Quilt Shoppe where I work, has kindly offered a Honeycomb charm pack of happy-go-lucky to one of you. She also designed the Hexagon Alphabet I have been working on this past year. Her button is on my side bar, so feel free to take a look if you like.

Just leave me a (one) comment on this post for a chance to win. I'll leave it open until next week.
