Windham Wednesdays on Thursday

It doesn't matter what day it is if I'm having another GIVEAWAY, now does it? Remember, I promised to give away a free Gee's Bend pattern once a week for the month of February. (Go to the end of this post to learn how to enter this last giveaway of these patterns. But please look at my pictures first.) Last week's winner was Beth A. from Washington (state). She chose the Medallion Variation:

Medallion Variation Quilt: 52" x 76"
I'm back with some more of that awesome Mimosa Collection. This time I cut out a bazillion melons using my Double Wedding Ring tool (OK, not a bazillion, but it seems like it when you are cutting them one by one).

All the red fabrics from the Mimosa Collection
What am I going to do with them? Well, I have an idea that has to do with an Orange Peel block.

 I have used that center melon for a LOT of quick quilt projects. You can see below how I use fusible webbing on the wrong side of the fabric and trace around the simple shape.

Yes, I'm still talking about Double Wedding Ring patterns. I have made several in the past 3 years:

Double Wedding Ring Blossoms (four 12" blocks)
A single block quilted
Table Runner using both patches
And do you remember Flower Power from the 60's Blog Hop last year?

Yes, I do sell this pattern set. No, you can't find it on my web site. It has both acrylic templates, patterns for both green and black projects, the pink and green runner and ideas for arranging these awesome shapes into other variations. $15, plus $2 postage USA addresses; international, contact me first.

I take orders via PayPal.

Now, if you want to be entered into the Gee's Bend pattern giveaway, just leave a comment below. Contest is over tonight at midnight and I will contact the winner some time tomorrow. If I don't hear back by Friday, I will choose another person. If you're a no-reply comment, I have no way to contact you (sigh).

The giveaway is NOT the template set. There is some misunderstanding about this, which tells me people aren't reading my WORDS. I will have a giveaway of the DWR template set sometime in the future, but TODAY'S giveaway is a GEE'S BEND PATTERN. Got it?

Thanks for joining my quilts today!
