Well, I have officially finished both my 4 Seasons Summer Quilt Swap, and the little quilt for my giveaway. Here they are:
This is the one for my swap partner, who needs to remain nameless just a bit longer, since I have yet to mail this off:
Now the one for my giveaway:
As you can see, it's a smaller than the swap quilt, and that is why I'm giving it away--it didn't meet the size requirements posted. But it's basically the same--borders are different and I turned one fish to swim against the crowd, same as the one I'm making me:
I do like the brights, so my borders are a bit wilder, and this is the Papa Bear of them all by size. See, the fish are appliqued, but the quilting, binding and embellishing aren't done yet. I should have this one finished in the next day or so.
The pattern came ouf of Quick Quilts Sept. 2006. It caught my eye from the very beginning and I had decided to make one for us some day, so when it came time for the summer swap, the deal was sealed. It's rated "Easy", but to my mind, this is an intermediate level.
So that's it! Drawing will be by J-Man in the morning at 10:00, so I will be cutting off entries at 9:30 EDT to give me time to gather the names together. To see most of the other items in the giveaway, and be eligible for the drawing, be sure to leave a comment on this post, along with a way to reach you; either email or blog URL.
Good luck, everyone!
