Block a Day, Part 4 & Giveaway

Contest was over at midnight. I am choosing a winner today. Cross your fingers and pray hard!
 
This is the last posting of the remaining 31 blocks in my crazy personal challenge from 2002 when I set out to sew a block a day for a year. Read my first posting, my second posting, and my third posting here.) I only got through March, but I had a great time. Remember, you can vote on these as to your favorite and I will select a winner on the last day. What? You mean I can win all of these blocks and the rest of the fabrics? You got it! They've been sitting in a box for 11 years and I think I've seen the writing on the wall - they need to go to a good, loving home! Vote for your favorite in the comments.

Here are the remaining blocks and, yes, I'm exhausted. These blocks need and want a good home!

January 24: 9" Anvil Block
January 25: 10" Country French Block
January 26: 9" Star Block
January 27: 5" Untitled Block
January 28: 4-3/4" Untitled Block
January 29: 5" Puss in the Corner Block
January 30: 6" Untitled Block
January 31: 9" Baby Basket Block
THE GIVEAWAY:
How can you win all of the 31 blocks? Vote for your favorite block in each group, only once. You can vote each time I have posted blocks (up to 4 times). The final week I will have a drawing from all the comments. You get to put your name in 4 times for 4 chances to win. (No more than 4; I will purge the list.)

You MUST be a follower. If I draw your name and discover you are not a follower, I will pick another name (it's my party and I make up the rules).


If you are new to this, I am not crazy. The blocks need a good home. A few of them, alas, have little rust spots from the pins that have sat in them, but that's your situation WINNER!

The contest ends Monday, February 4 at midnight. I will take a day or two to wade through all the comment lists. Remember, your vote only counts for the prize if you're a follower.

  3. Love all, but I love the January 30 block the best. And not just because it was my birthday.

  4. Oh Debby! I think these blocks are the prettiest of them all. It is really hard to choose just one. I think I would probably choose the Country French block simply for the colors. But I love all the untiled blocks as well. Thank you so much for the wonderful giveaway. Someone will be a very lucky person to win these.

  5. Although they are all lovely I think the January 31 Baby basket block is my favorite. I love the simplicity of it, and I really love the fabric choice you made. It is soft and gentle and really fits the theme of the block.

  7. Hi, I'm a recent follower via Blogger Reader. If I were to win the blocks I'd put them to use in a baby quilt for our local guild's 'layette project.' I love the group of blocks you've posted today - they seem to want to be a baby girl's first quilt.
