I Was Holding Out On You

I'm sure you'll remember Monice and Hen House Designs, and how generous she was go give me two of her Summer Picnic quilt patterns to give away, right?  Well, what I didn't tell you then was that she gave me a Summer Picnic table runner pattern to give away too.  I wanted to prolong the fun, so I held out for a week or two.  She designed this pattern to use wool for the applique, and it looks fantastic in wool as you can see below, but I'm sure if you have an aversion to wool but a knowledge of standard applique techniques, you could convert the pattern to use cotton.

Here's a photo of Monice's runner:


It's a heck of a lot prettier than the bad photo I took of the pattern with too much flash!


If you would like a chance to win the tablerunner pattern, leave me a comment saying you'd love to win and want to be entered.  And if you'd like to visit Monice's Etsy Shop, click HERE.  Unfortunately, I do not have a free copy of her Whimsical Hearts and Tulips pattern to give away, so you just might want to go ahead and purchase it.  It's a beauty, isn't it?


And no, this quilt isn't mine--I just stole the photo from Monice's Etsy shop; hopefully she won't mind!

I'll draw a winner Friday night and announce the winner on my Saturday blog post, so make sure you come back to check!

Brings back lots of memories using the ball jars. Canning was a big part of my life. Still have a lot of these aqua blue jars. They are beautiful.

Would love to win.

Thank you, Kim

I'd love to be entered. When I didn't win the last pattern I purchased it along with the hearts and tulips pattern. I exhibited self control and didn't buy the runner pattern. Maybe I wasn't meant to because I'm going to win it????
