Quilty Gifts



I forgot to post a photo of the quilt rack that I received for Christmas from my parents. It was made by Mr. Martin, a local carpenter, and it is the perfect size for showing/storing small quilts, wallhanging and tablerunners.
It would also be a great way to display quilt tops that are waiting to be finished. 
I just love it! 


I also got some quilt calendars, so I am giving this one away to one of my blog readers. If you want your name in the draw, leave a comment. The winner's name will be pulled tomorrow...New Year's Eve!

Beautiful quilt rack! I'd love to win the calendar, because I think this is the first year that I did not receive a calendar as a gift. And what better than a quilty calendar.

Very cool rack! And your quilts look lovely there! I bought a nice wooden rack several months ago to display my quilts because all of my wall space is taken up with windows. Not complaining mind you - I love the light! But it does make it hard to show off my quilts :*D

Put my name in the pot for the giveaway! Crossing fingers & toes....

Wonderful quilt rack--I like that it is a stand up type and looks very portable! I have one that someday will be wall mounted. Love the calender too!

Oh Kathy! What a thoughtful lil' giveaway. I would love to have my name thrown in the hat as I don't have a single 2012 calendar ready to replace my 2011 one tomorrow.

Happy Friday
