Yay! My first Giveaway! Since I'm leaving today for my annual quilting getaway, please leave a comment telling me what you'll be doing for fun this weekend, quilting or otherwise, or just introduce yourself. A random winner will be chosen on Wednesday and will receive her/his choice of (3) three of the lapel pins shown above! Keep them all for yourself or share them with quilty friends.
I've been making these paper-pieced pins since 1994 and my customers and friends keep pushing me to add new designs. At first they were all traditional patterns like log cabins and flying geese. Then they wanted something for each season and holiday. Yesterday, I designed the cupcake because I bought a cute cupcake fabric last week. It has a sequin and bead for the cherry on top. The Dutchman's Puzzle is my favorite.
Most of the pins are about 1-3/4" square. The flying geese is about 1" x 1-3/4". There is a piece of mat board inside for stability and the back is covered with Ultrasuede®.
I'm hoping to set up an Etsy shop very soon, where the pins will sell for $12 each. That makes the Giveaway prize of 3 pins a $36 value.
Please leave a comment to enter and spread the word. I'll be away until Sunday afternoon and I look forward to reading your comments. It's time for me to start packing!
