Last Day of Size Matters Blog Post - Almost

Wow!  We're at the end of the Moda Size Matter's Blog Hop already.
To get a pattern for the quilt Tammy Vonderschmitt of Moda designed using all of the block click here.
(Once I got there I had to click on the page to get it to refresh and bring up today's post.)   It is an awesome medallion quilt - hats off to Tammy and Moda, of course. 

Just to refresh your mind, here's the block I made out of the Crossroads line

And the pillow I made out of the block.

If you missed the patterns you can back up to my post day, September 6th and download them.
If you want a kit to make the pillow you can get one by clicking here.

And of course, on to the important part of today's post - the give-away.

The Random Number Generator has chosen Nancy who commented
I too, have learned that quilters have big hearts. Got a wonderful care package recently after a quilter learned about my husband being out of work and his surgery to remove cancer of the kidney. It touched my heart to realize that people care, even if they don't know! She had recently dealt with the same cancer in her hubby, so knew first-hand where I was coming from.
I like your pillow and block. Those fabrics are lovely and whomever wins them is going to be so happy.
Nancy, if you will email your snailmail address to Tori at we'll ship you your precuts.  And I hope your husband is recovering nicely.

And speaking of give-aways, we still have one to go.  
In case you weren't here the day of the post here's what you get and why.

In order to do the tutorial on Stems and Leaves using the center block from Eagles and Roses, I needed to have the block  done in several different stages.  No one wants to sit and watch me stitch and stitch - that gets boring.
What I've always wondered is "what to do with the blocks afterwards".  I guess I could make 2 or 3 fullsized quilts but that's probably not going to happen :).
So I came up with this idea.  I'll have a contest and give them away on my blog.

Here's what is included to make the Rose Urn Wallhanging - the center block in progress and all of the fabrics and pattern to finish it, along with the borders and binding.  It will finish at 46" x 46".
To be in the running to win it you need to go to my You Tube site by clicking here and subscribe.  
If you have already subscribed and want to enter just make a comment.  

I'll have the random number generator pick us a winner tomorrow morning.

Here is the block in all of it's glory in Eagles and Roses.

You may remember that I took preorders for the Eagles and Roses kit.  Well a few people have had things come up and can't take the kit so we have some in the store.
We also have had a few request to kit the Rose Urn Wallhanging.

If you want to buy a kit for the Rose Urn Wallhanging (and if you win the wallhanging we'll refund your money :) or Eagles and Roses - the numbers are extremely limited - click here.  

Tammy incorporated 4 embroidered words into her medallion quilt.......Well said, Tammy

The four corners needed applique or something 
to soften the black blob.  
My four favorite things came to mind, 
Faith, Family, Friends, and Fabric.  
My life revolves around these things and I need all of them in my life to function.
