Celebrating 300 posts!

Celebration Giveaway
My last blog posting was #300! I decided to celebrate this milestone with a fabric giveaway...this baby quilt kit. First of all what I am going to do is put in one entry for each person who left me a comment on my blog
postings in December, so that is 59 entries already!
The kit has the fabric for the top only and the quilt measures 39" x 50". I didn't make this sample, it was hanging at the store....but I'm have mine ready to sew. This quilt starts by cutting up a panel with pictures of Winnie the Pooh and Piglet and has a piano key border...quick and easy to make up for a baby gift whenever you need one.
Baby Quilt Bee
Which leads me to my next idea...anybody want to come over to the quilt studio and make up one of these baby quilts on Friday January 23rd? I want to make one, so I thought I'd host a baby quilt sewing bee from 6 to 10 pm. For $25 you will get the baby quilt fabric kit, a fun evening of sewing (I'll even turn the heat on for you!), and of course tea and cookies. Email me if you want to come to the bee.
Mystery Quilt Update
I have been sewing late at night this week and have finally finished Step #2! Here are 12 of the blocks. I really like these fabrics together. I have also cut out the pieces for step #3 but I think that when I am done this next step I will put the blocks away for a while and work on some other projects. The strip sewing was very soothing and relaxing after all the activity of Christmas, but now I'm ready to work on something a little more challenging.

Congratulations on your 300th post! Wish I could attend on the 23rd as I need to make a baby quilt before March but my husband is having surgery this week so taking one day at a time. Love your colour choices in the mystery. jr (guelph)

Congratulations on 300 posts,Kathy. The baby quilt will be so cute. I wish I could come to your baby bee, that would be fun. Might have to have my own, as I have that polka dotted baby quilt to find!

The mystery is coming along nicely.
