Quilty Anniversary

** THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED **

It's been about a year since I've started quilting! A year! It almost seems impossible that it's only been a year... It's consumed my life entirely and I can't remember what life was like before. I mean I now sell quilts and work at a quilt store for crying out loud.

Last April, I had this bright idea to make my MIL a quilted table runner for her birthday. It took me forever and ever to finish, and at one point, I'm pretty sure I tried to strangle myself with it lol! Sometimes I do strange things without much forethought that lead to really good things. Like me visiting the States on a whim and meeting my husband :)

Anyway, my point is, I'm hosting a giveaway!!!

Four Lizzy Dish fat quarters up for grabs!


Two chances to win...

1. Leave a comment!
2. Subscribe to the blog and leave another comment!

I'll announce a winner on Thursday April 22 :) Good luck!!

(I apologise for the many exclamation marks littered throughout this post.)

Congratulations on your anniversary! I am also an immigrant, but I left the States, moved to the UK and met my lovely English husband here. :) We are about to have our 4th child this summer and I, too, have let quilting take over my life... it's been worth it, though! :)
