Housekeeping on Kansas City Star Giveaway

It's only been a few hours with over 20 comments and only 9 leaving a legitimate email. Most come through (to my email) as a "no reply" return address.

If you're worried about leaving your email (so that you can be entered into my giveaway contest), then just EMAIL ME:

More blocks from the Kansas City Star. This is a series called "Quilting Patterns and Motifs" which features 27 quilting motifs from 1930 to 1938.

Remember, this is an orphan block that is included in the giveaway. The unknown maker decided to use it for embroidery. Lovely, huh?

Kansas City Star Motif: November 21, 1934

Contest is over Friday night. One digital copy to an international visitor (I must know this by you telling me; I have no idea what country you come from via your email!)

One CD copy AND this block will go to a USA visitor.

The reason for this post is BECAUSE . . .
