Where the triangles gather and a GIVEAWAY

I made some more blocks following the direction of Primitive Gatherings.  I'm definitely not doing them mini as a lot of others seem to be doing but I'm okay with that!  Not sure if I mentioned that I'm using the fabric I bought for the Farmgirl Quilt, which isn't getting done any time soon!  Fun fabrics and nice for a change!







Here are the 5 I've done;  there's a new one this week which I need to get done today as we are driving back to California tomorrow.  This weekend we get the kids so we are excited about that!



I'm not certain how they will be set when all the blocks have been done but I am enjoying the process so far!

I wanted to give you an idea of the view outside our windows here at the cabin.  There is probably a good 3' of snow on the ground and my husband has spent most every day outside shoveling both the ground and the roof!  When I took this picture yesterday morning, there are frozen ice on all the trees. Not sure it came out in this picture.  The trees were all white from ice!  Not snow!



News of the quilt a long:
The block is also know as Goose in the Pond. Thanks to all who reminded me of that.  I also wanted to let you know that you can do as few blocks or as many as you want.  If you don't want a huge project, make 4 blocks and you'll have a small quilt, if you add a little border.

I'm delighted with so many interested people!!

And now for a small giveaway:
I have a small little spiral book with a couple of patterns called "Farmhouse Quilts, Tea for Two" by Liberty Homestead.  If you're interested in winning this, send me a comment with your email address, please.  I'll draw a winner on Sunday!

  8. Well we only had 24 inches of snow here total and its pretty much down to a couple of inches. The snow is fine its the slush from the melt that's hard to navigate!

  9. I've saved all of the triangle patterns, but haven't made any yet. Yours are so cheerful in those fun fabrics!
    Our landscape looks about like yours right now. We are so deep in snow many businesses are having to have the snow hauled away, rather than just pushed aside, in order to have enough parking in their lots.
    Don't include me in the drawing. I am trying to be a little more realistic about what I will ever actually get made (so why am I saving the triangle patterns, you may ask).

  10. Love the triangles blocks. Such cheerful fabrics. Love the dots! We don't have much snow left after the "January Heat Wave". We stayed at the 0 and 1+ a little too long. The snow has collapsed on itself and we are stuck with ice. They are calling for some more this weekend, so all is good. Thanks for the chance on winning this lovely book. ;^)

  11. Love those blocks! Such springlike colors. I'm sure Mark thinks so too after shoveling snow for so long! Freezing rain on top of snow is NO fun! Have a ball with the kiddos!
