A Scrappy Little Freebie

I was visiting Renee Nanneman's online shop, Need'l Love, sometime last week and felt I needed to place an order for a few goodies--I love her fabrics, the Threads books, and the patterns she carries.  AND she has some good bargains too!  When my order arrived, I found she was kind enough to send along a free pattern, Rose Maison, and I thought I should pass it on to one of you.  I think this would be a very good candidate for a scrappy quilt, don't you?


If you're not too challenged by all those pinwheel points and would like a chance to win this pattern, just leave me a comment telling me you want to be entered into the drawing, and I'll draw a winner Thursday evening--come back on Friday to see if your name was picked!  Wouldn't this quilt look stunning with black as the background color and lighter/brighter scraps?  Kind of Amish-ish?

Speaking of black, let me show you what I found--and purchased--over at Need'l Love.  You know I'm a sucker for all things Halloween, right?  I'm looking forward to making this one before long.  Halloween is less than six months away--can you believe it?!


I also purchased a small bundle of black fat quarters--she has some great bundles.  If you hop over there--and you can do that by clicking on the shop name in the first sentence--check out the special offer near the top of the page to the right.  This week it's the Strawberry Threads book for only $10.  I have the book and there are some fun projects--you can see photos of them right there on the website.  So many projects, so little time!

Gosh I really love that pattern, and I love pinwheels too - I think it would also look great in blues and whites - fingers crossed, I need a new challenge. Lovely blog.

I don't what to enter into the contest...that is a bit challenging for me! But I did want to say that I love that Hallowe'en pattern and it is never too early to work on Hallowe'en...I made a Hallowe'en table runner last week.

I'd love to be in the drwaing and your idea with the Amish coloring could be fantastic. My preference though would be in Springtime colors especially with all those pinwheels.
I've been thinking about making that Happy Twister Jack pattern too, will be anxious to see how yours finishes. Jane
