Ready for another Giveaway?

So, after the holidays, I haven't been sewing as much because I am back in my last doctoral class.  However, we are on  break for the next 10 days, and that has allowed me to finally put together my latest pattern:


Meet the Buster Bib.  As in mess buster.  I designed this bib over the holidays and made a couple for my niece.  I finally had the time to put together the pattern the last couple of days.  So, in order to get the word out, I'm going to have another giveaway.  (So fun!!)
The giveaway will begin on Thursday, January 21st and end on Sunday January 25th at midnight.  There will be two prizes, one for a PDF pattern, and one for a bib like this:


This the perfect pattern for anyone wanting to learn how to quilt.  It is small enough that it doesn't take a huge investment in fabric, but gives you experience with curves and 90 degree angles.  I have been frustrated in learning how to do simple quilting with a sewing machine without any fancy attachments or a walking foot.  So, all the tips and tricks I've learned, I'll share with you.  The pattern allows you lots of freedom to be creative, but gives you step by step instructions on all the basics of quilting including how to make your binding, how to quilt on a regular sewing machine, and the easiest way to finish off a binding.  Once you get the basics down, these bibs can be made in 2-3 hours.  The Buster Bib would make a wonderful heirloom baby gift.

To enter, you'll need to leave a comment on the giveaway post.  You can earn an extra entry if you blog about the giveaway.  Just leave a separate comment to let me know.  I'm so excited!   We'll see you back on Thursday...and bring a friend.
