Pink Slip Quilts and Giveaway
|Blazing Autumn draft block and quilt|
When I worked for Quilt Magazine we had a lot of fabric companies asking us to work with their fabric collections, both for publication and for display at Quilt Market. Bali had asked me to make something with the above collection, something organic and out-doorsy. Hence, my Blazing Autumn quilt. They said, "Nice. But not this time." I liked it and to tell you the truth, I can't find it anymore. It disappeared in one of my recent moves. Yikes! But I think I stayed with their theme, right?

I have PLENTY of other quilts that languish in my closets. Remember, I sew for the camera. This is how I pay my bills, keep the heat and AC going, and when something is not published I don't get paid! I give a LOT of quilts away (because I sew a LOT). But I always sew with publishing in mind.
And the giveaway? Some fabric! Another collection by Blank Quilting. 3 fat quarters from the Mariko Collection below. Leave a comment as to which of the above "pink slip" projects is your favorite. Contest over MIDNIGHT JUNE 16, 2013 (so I can mail it out before my next road trip).
