AMAZING SISTERS!!! ANOTHER GIVEAWAY!!!

For those of you that have been reading my blog awhile, you have heard me talk of my amazing sisters.

  Two older, Jeanetter from Inchworm Fabrics and her blog,
 Margaret from Average Quilter,
 then my younger sister Beverly of Quilters Corner.
  Each sister has their own nitch in the quilting world.

As you see, Jeanette has her own store, Margaret has her own longarm quilting and embroidery business, and Beverly just recently got a longarm.

My mother is just as amazing, she is the long time quilter, she use to tailor clothes and make all of us girls clothes for school.  Happy Mother's Day to all of my sisters and mother!!!

Jeanette just recently wrote up the pattern for this quilt "Oklahoma Twister"...what a fitting name.

 .  
 Here it is made up


 Put your blinders on....


Here is my square....this was so fast, fun, and the pattern is so easy to understand.   I am trying to put the breaks on myself and not cut out enough squares for a quilt.  Why....because I have soooooooooooooooo much to finish.  So her making this pattern is a true motivator for me...gonna get a few things done and then I am going to make a quilt and in my lime green....Ooooo la la


Jeanette is giving away a pattern on her blog and I am giving away one here.  If you don't want to wait that long you can go to her store.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Which brings me to the winner of my four fat quarters from Island Batik.

CRICK CORNER  

Thanks to all of you who came by and commented.  If I did not answer you it was because your comment did not make it to my hot mail...some did, some didn't...go figure!!!

I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL MOTHER'S DAY!!!!

Very fun pattern! How great that your Mom and sisters share your passion!

kc said...

How nice to have knowledgeable others around that can share a few tips & tricks with you...I'm learning all I can by trial and error (some days, mostly just error), and YouTube. Thankfully, there are kind people like you & your sisters and Fons & Port, Missouri Star, etc. Loved how this pattern turned out & I can see how it becomes a twister!

KatieQ said...

It's a lovely pattern. It must be fun to share your quilting interests with your sisters and your mom. It's like having your own mini quilting guild.
Happy Mother's Day!

Cecilia said...

Great pattern! I love the lime green and think it would look great with more bright colors to make a rainbow quilt! Thanks for the chance to win the pattern.

Sally said...

Love the pattern--looks great in all the fabrics!

Bonnie58 said...

Gorgeous quilt . Love the pattern. Thanks so much for sharing

Sarah or Semmy said...

What a great pattern! I live in OK in the tornado alley and have been through 2, which was 2 to many! The quilt really is a good example of the twisting and turning a tornado can go through.

Debi said...

I love that pattern Barb.

Susan Entwistle said...

How cool that your sisters can longarm your quilts for you :) Seriously, it's great your family quilts, and I love the pattern.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

I've been having that same problem with comments~ some make it to my email and some don't... no idea why! Cute pattern~ it will look great in your green. ;-)

Glenda in Florida said...

Oklahoma Twister looks like a great design! Love the motion in it.

Brenda said...

I love the tornado implications of the design. Especially as we had 15 or 17 strike just west and north of us in Nebraska. This would make a great benefit quilt for one of the small towns that were extensively damaged/nearly destroyed.
