Brrr! Baby Quilt and Giveaway

 
I feel really lucky that Laurie Wisbrun gave me the opportunity to work with her new fabrics, and I had tons of fun making the quilt and pillow I shared yesterday.  I knew I wanted to make something to giveaway with the rest of the fabric, so I made this strip quilt for Project Linus.  It is 41 x 52 inches.
Strip quilts are easy to make and sew up so quickly. They are great for featuring fun prints, like these polar bears.  Add some straight line quilting, and you're good to go.  Easy and cute, they are a great option for making quilts for little ones.
I hope this is just the first of several quilts I can donate this year!
And that's not all I get to giveaway today!  The folks at Robert Kaufman gave me a fat quarter set of the full fabric line to give to one of you.  Just leave a comment, and I'll select a winner, randomly, Monday morning.  If I can't contact you via a valid email address, I'll choose another winner.  Good luck! Contest now closed.

Thanks for the giveaway! I imagine being commenter #1 will diminish my chances but stranger things have happened. :-)

I feel a burning need to send bears into space. Or more likely build a fortress for them in Candyland.

Jenny said...

Oh my gosh, what a giveaway! I hate that I'm No. 3 or so. That never wins, does it? Thanks for the chance! I was so anxious to sign up that I forgot to see if there's a question I'm supposed to answer, argh.

Cute quilt and I love that fabric! Thanks for sharing with us! =)

Heather A said...

I grew up on a farm and our home town was (is) White Bear, Saskatchewan. As soon as I saw this fabric line, I just KNEW I'd have to get some one way or another. White Bear is all but a ghost town now. Just a handful of people live there. It really dwindled after the rail line quit running through. My Mom just LOVES anything with a polar bear on it.

You'll have made some lucky (or luckier) Linus happy!

Miranda said...

brrr! would be perfect for that christmas tree skirt i *swear* i'm going to make this year!

mngirl said...
