Well, It's About Time for a GIVEAWAY!!!

The weather is getting hot here - supposed to be 98 degrees today and 101 on Saturday!!!  Yiks!!!  As such, I don't seem to be getting much done so I decided I needed some motivation - how about you??

The result - a GIVEAWAY!!

That cute Janet over at Rogue Quilter has been inspiring me for weeks with all her wonderful patriotic quilts and when I dropped into her blog this morning, there were lots more goodies!!  All "Flag Waving" quilts as Janet says!!  And then I saw that she has told you where she got some of her gorgeous patriotic fabrics - from my Etsy shop!!  Whoo! Hoo!!

I love all the quilts she has been working on and receiving in swaps, but this one is my most favorite ~


And then this one that Janet made for Gayle in their little swap is fabulous and Janet forgot to mention that she HAND quilted this sweet quilt!!


So, Janet's quilts are my motivation and since it is getting close to July 4th - a most patriotic day here in the States - I thought I would make a patriotic quilt for my kitchen table and giveaway some of the darling fabrics that Janet used in her quilts!!


8 - FQs of Old Glory Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings for Moda Fabrics

So, if you would like a chance to win these FQs, just leave me a comment as to the patriotic quilt you would like to make with these great fabrics!!

Also, if you want to post this giveaway on your blog, just let me know in a separate comment and you will get a second chance to win!!  And I love new followers!!


For all my lovely international friends, these fabrics would be darling in any quilt - not necessarity just a "Janet O. Flag Waving" quilt!!  Please join us!!  ;-))

I will pick a winner on July 3rd!!

Of all of the patriotic quilts you pictured, the first one - with stripes and stars! - is my favorite, and I would love to make something similar but perhaps smaller to use as a door quilt for 9/11 every year, and July 4th, and Memorial Day too!

I like that first quilt you had with the Uncle Sam standing on it. It's a cutie! You've inspired me to hand my "Healing Heart" on my front door today through the 4th. I made it after 9/11.

Lovely patriotic quilts. I'd make a rail fence/star quilt if I'm lucky enough to win. Thanks.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I have to admit that I fell in love with that RWB pineapple quilt that Janet made ... and since I'm relatively new to paper piecing (and LOVE it!) and as a result have become a fanatic about pineapple quilts, I have to say that I'd make a RWB pineapple quilt. It might not be very original, but I know that I'd LOVE it!

Ruth said...

Wonderful fabric! I think I would make a new table runner. The RW&B one I have isn't very big and I do need a bigger one. Thanks so much for the chance!
