MAKING HAY WHILE THE SUN SHINES. UGLY TOP GIVEAWAY

I finished this quilt yesterday. Oh….how I love the Samoan Fabrics.

As most of you know, I am getting ready to move, I have come across so many unfinished projects that I am truly ashamed.

Here is one that I truly do not like, it annoys me just being around. If you by chance like this, just comment, if there are more than

one taker, I will choose the lucky (unlucky) person tonight. There is the top, without a border, I have included the left over fabric and binding fabric.

Next, I don’t know what I was thinking….

My sister is giving away this runner pattern free with any purchase of Indian Summer Fabric…..

Indian Summer Runner

but I failed to tell you how much fabric you will need if you wanted to make this.

1 Yard

IMG_0822

1 fat quarter

IMG_0823

1/4 yard ( or 1 fat quarter is you buy jumbo rick rack and use that in place of the prairie points)

1/4 yard

This is a pdf pattern and can be found at Patternspot.com or this week-end at my sister’s store. She has not downloaded it yet and for those of you who are not familiar with her, she always sends a hard copy for you if you order the fabric.

There you have it, now I am off to the races…..have lots to do today. Hope you all have a fun filled day.

Your work is always so pretty. If you don't want the unfinished project, I'll take it. I am teaching a friend to sew and quilt and it would be a good thing for her to practice with.

thanks
beebee

I wish I had a room full of the Samoan fabrics. To me they are just beautiful. Oh I really the quilt you finished yesterday and the UFO.

Cathy said...

Barb your blue and white quilt is simply gorgeous! xo

I would love the 'ugly' quilt - would donate to Sarah's group for their ministry quilts - it would certainly wrap someone in love.

I love your UFO and would love to have it. I see lots of possibilities -- for ME or for my charity quilts that I do every month (2 for local hospital). Either way -- moving is a blessing and a curse....I admire your cleaning out now...it pays off and I speak from experience. Was living it this time last year! Good luck.

What's not to love about that beautiful blue? I have been making quilts and fleece blankets for a local hospice, so I would finish it and donate it! It would certainly make someone very happy.

Gene Black said...

I would love to have your unfinished project. I can always use it for a charity quilt.

Needled Mom said...

Your blue and white quilt is beautiful, Barb. I, too, would be glad to finish the blue quilt up and donate it to our guild.

When do you move?

Jean said...

Count me out of the giveaway. Just wanted t de-lurk, pop in and say that blue/white quilt is just beautiful! I can see the draw of Samoan fabrics.

Ann Marie @ 16 Muddy Feet said...

I love the ugly quilt, that color is my favorite.

Sarcastic Quilter said...

I like the top! Please plop me in the drawing.

I'm going to be at the Panera on 610 by 95 around noon, if you are around and want to stop by & have lunch. :)

Good luck with the packing!

Jean said...

Pretty quilts, even the so called ugly one. It is interesting sometimes how we see our own work. I love the Samoan fabrics as well.

Willow said...

It is not ugly. Would look great in my blue bedroom. Count me in.

wackywoman said...

Looks like a great quilt to me Barb. I will be having my 14 year-old granddaughter with me for a couple of weeks in June and would like to get her going on some quilting. This would be great!

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

I love the blue in your "ugly" quilt. It shimmers like water on a warm Summer day. lol

Suzanne said...

You know I love the Samoan fabrics and one day I will use the ones my daughter purchased from you...lol!

Wendy said...

Okay, the quilt may be ugly to you but I think it is beautiful and would love to finish it a give it a place in my home where it will truly be loved and cherished. I actually have the perfect backing already for this quilt. Blue/white with scroll work, so please put my name in the draw.

Tia said...

Love both of your quilts. Blue is my favorite color.

~ Julie ~ said...

Barb, I think you're CRAZY! :) I love that quilt! Maybe I should come help you pack so you don't get rid of other beautiful things you've made! And the blue and white one is so pretty, too! I love Hawaiian/Samoan fabrics! They make me so happy just looking at the bright colors and pretty prints! :) Have a fabulous day! :)

Snoodles said...

Um, can my name be in the pot, too? Heehee! Love your Samoan fabrics....if I wasn't on a restricted fabric diet, I'd be all over those at Inchworm! LOL

Carin said...

Barb, I don't think that your quilt top is ugly I think the colors are beautiful. Hope your move goes smoothly :O)

Tangos Treasures said...

I like the quilt too!! But don't add me to the drawing I have lots of ufo's too!! LOL

Irina said...

oh, I think it is beautiful, I like the different shades of blue in it!

IHaveANotion ~ Kelly Jackson said...

Hey...that isn't ugly at all...and it would be perfect for the one I'm working on now. Toss my name in your hat!

There is no way I'm ever going to agree to count up all my own UFO's so you know I'd never ask you about yours...LOL :)

Hugs,
Kelly

Ivory Spring said...

I love love love that blue quilt!

Marcia W. said...

Blue is my favorite color so must enter for this one. Don't you think it would look good in a Florida home on the water? There is no way that this is ugly! I'm good at finishing projects that we win too.

retdairyqueen said...

Seems like lots of people like your ugly quilt top Me included

sandra said...

When we move is when we realize how many ufo's we have and sometimes we know why. LOL Keep on packing. Blessings Sandra

Fiesta said...

I think it is lovely. You make great choices when selecting fabrics Barb. Ihave plenty to keep MY hands full
This summer so I will pass on the giveaway.

Sally said...

I too have oodles of UFOs, PIGS and PHDs but I'm sure I could get your lovely blue Drunkards Path finished and to a good home!

SewCalGal said...

Your work is always beautiful. Your top just needs someone with time to add beautiful FMQ stitching to make this lovely design even more spectacular.

And, I love your design and matching fabric that can be purchased at InchWorm Fabrics, at an amazing low price. AMAZING LOW!

ewespecial said...

What an opportunity to take your unwanted quilt top and use it for Binky Patrol! One lucky child would relish the warmth of this! Thank you for the chance to win this 'discard'!
