Don't go enter this giveaway...



...because I'd really like to win this quilt - isn't it lovely? I came across this giveaway on the blog Don't Look Now while I was bloghopping (found it through Emma's blog, where I am a regular visitor) and decided that while I don't normally enter random giveaways at blogs I don't usually read, I would make an exception in this case, as it's such a lovely piece. And who knows, I may well become a regular reader, too. I wish I'd found it a few days ago, though, as Kelly (the blog author) mentions that her patterns have just started being stocked at Creative Quilting, which is my LQS, and where I made a visit just yesterday. I might not have bought a pattern of course (not being a big one for patterns, these days) but it would have been great fun to look.

It was timely to have this to post, as I'm not able to share my own work today with you just yet - I worked on the blocks for the September block lotto, which is not yet public (I had a sneak peek - if you've made blocks before the last week in the month, you get one for the next month). This is particularly good for September, as I have a lot more time now than I will once school starts back. Probably. And tomorrow, the kids and I are off to Legoland, so there will be no quilty pictures - at least, I don't think there's a lego quilt at Legoland, though you never know. There will, however, be photos on the family blog for those of you who, like me, can't quite seem to get over the fact that they build scale models of the great world cities in Lego. And dinosaurs. And what-have-you. Never mind the rides, lol.

You should definitely become a regular at her blog. She always has beautiful patterns to show you, and there are some free ones on her blog as well, and instructions on the technique, etc.
