A Finished Object...and a Giveaway!

Since several people asked, here she is, start to finish.

The part of the fabric that talked its way into my stash...

I just couldn't resist the little dancer!

The quilting...


I was at a loss for how to quilt this. Then, while I was practicing on the little quilt sandwich Shelly gave me, stipple-like quilting just started coming out. It felt good and easy and I instantly knew that's how I wanted to fill the space on this project. Well, it wasn't so easy to do to fill all the varying spaces, stopping and starting, coordinating hand, foot and eye, but when it all worked, it looked like this.

How it looks on my entry table...


And the big picture....

(It's not quite that wonky on the left end. I've got to figure out how to take these pictures better!)

And the giveaway....


It's my 150th post and I want to do something fun. I found this slightly flawed, but endearing book of children and doll quilts on a clearance table. I bought one for me and one to giveaway. And today's the day! I'll draw a random winner on Monday night. If you want to comment, but don't want the book, just say so and I'll keep your name out. I'm sure those who do want it would be thrilled to increase their odds. :)

Have a lovely autumn weekend!
It'll be a rainy and busy one here. How 'bout yours?

That Halloween runner turned out great! Isn't stippling fun? So much room for (unnoticed) errors- I love it!

I love the 'vintage' looking halloween children fabric. It turned out so cute. Even though I'm not a quilter...maybe someday...I enjoy looking, so I'm in!

I LOVE your Halloween runner. I don't want the book. I can only do so much, and that isn't it. Heh.

Wow! Congrats on 150! It goes by really fast, doesn't it? And I love the runner! So cute and the colors are great... Someday I'll learn how to do that stuff, too! (I still haven't finished the pillow I started this summer...)
So glad we're both back to the blogosphere - it's good to see you!
