Time for a GIVEAWAY!

 
I can't believe I haven't blogged in so long. I am in the process of purchasing another home in St. George, Utah. I love it there. Here is a picture of the front of the house  and below is a picture of the kitchen and great room space.

 
I will have a few things to do before moving in. There is no fence in the backyard for the puppies. There is some painting and light fixtures to change. The previous owners have moved out so it will make it easier to do everything I need to before moving in.
 
I finally finished it!  The new Block of the Month will be named:
"Beauty All Around"

 
Leaving here in a couple of days for Florida (in August am I crazy or what?). There is a quilt retreat with some wonderful quilting friends. I think while I am gone how about another GIVEAWAY! Two winners. Two patterns each!
(Drawing will be on Aug. 27th)
I love reading all your comments. Let me know what your sewing or working on this summer. Fall will be here before we know it!

Fall always sneaks up on me, but it is my very favorite season of all!

Hope you enjoy your time in Florida. I don't think it really matters where you are, as long as you're quilting. I have a few BOM projects to finish up, and am also working on a modern-fabric patchwork quilt (pattern from Red Pepper Quilts) that I'm enjoying. Most of the time, I work with Civil War repro fabrics, which I love so this is a little outside the box for me.

Have a fun retreat! I have been plodding away on a Jen Kingwell pattern. This is going to be a beauty!

I have tried to finish up a lot of UFOs this summer. Of course that's great except I started more...oh well.

Your new home is beautiful - I bet you are anxious to settle in. And yes, you are crazy to go to Florida now! My niece lives there and my brother just got back - he was glad to be back in Iowa - much cooler! But, have an awesome time with friends!

Betsy said...

I live in Florida and it is Africa hot! I am working on a quilt for my sons girlfriend. It will be her Christmas gift

Donya said...

Beautiful house, happy for you. Have a great time at the retreat I will be horsing around in Montana!

Anne said...

Hey Joyce, Love your new house. How fun for you to be able to get "away". Retreats maybe? Hmmm. I'm making working on some fall things right now. It's been so hot here that I'm looking forward to sweater weather. Love your new BOM. It's just gorgeous!

Love the new house...so bright and open!! I am on a mission to make baby quilts...four of them and I am also working on Winter Solstice as part of a Sew A-Long. Busy..busy...busy!! Have fun in Florida!

From the picture, your new home looks nearly identical to my SIL's which is in Hurricane. She often lets us use it - I'll only go in the spring or the fall - and we always have a great time exploring. Have fun in Florida!

I love spring the best, fall is next. I am working on a scrap quilt. Only 660 half square triangles along with plain squares.

Rebecca in AK said...

Hi Joyce! I just found your blog from Anna's blog, Woolie Mammoth. I sure like your new house! I love your pattern Beauty All Around! I have busy working on queen size quilts for each of my grown children for their Christmas gifts this year.

Can't wait to see you at Camp Blanding!!! I wish fall would get here . At least it would cool down to the 80's

Christie said...

Thanks so much for the chance to win. Enjoy your quilt retreat!

Melissa Jordan said...

I love your new Block of the Month, Beauty all Around. I finally finished Grand old Flag in time for the July Holidays, but is still hanging on my ladder. I enjoy looking at it all the time!

Colleen said...

Oh I love the open concept! The island will be wonderful. Beautiful quilt!

Dixie said...

Love your new block o' the month! I'm working on an applique quilt of the month, and pretty much keeping up with it, so the last blocks will be finished by December. Then I want to put a complicated border on it! Love your quilt designs!

jofridsquilt said...

Love your BOM. I am working on my antique quilt. Only missing four blocks. They are prepped so hope to finish soon. Hugs Jofrid

Janie said...

Love your quilt and the fabric choices. I am working on a fall wall hanging, and a 1930's quilt. Thanks for the giveaway. Enjoy your trip.

Marilyn Wharton said...

I'm new to your blog but saw your BOM on FB and had to tell you it is absolutely stunning. Please let us know where we can get it when it becomes available. It is gorgeous.

Rhonda Knutsen said...

Playing catch up on all my block of the month projects. How is time going so fast! Love your new BOM and your new home!

Jacqueline said...

Congrat's on the new home. Moving is the best motivator in the world for purging, cleaning, changing. And the fun part of decorating.

I have been working on birthday gifts for my quilting buddies. 3 down and 1 more to go...

Debra @ Life is a Stitch said...

I don't think you're crazy for August/Florida, as I just came back from a family wedding in Destin! It was hot, but the breezes were wonderful! So now that the wedding is over, I have a great-niece's quilt on the long-arm, just finished my row of little sweets for a sew-along, and gathered fabrics for an eagle quilt I'm going to start. And every night I stitch a little more together on my Lucy Boston!
I love your patterns, and thank you for the chance!

I'm working on wool applique this summer.
I have one punch needle project started, but it will take some time.
Love to stitch!

I just found you through, the Woolie Mammoth blog. Yay!
I love when I find a great new blog to read. This summer I've been working on a log cabin table mat, that I've been doing a lot of wool appliqué and embroidery on. Wool appliqué is new to me, I'm enjoying it. Also my LQS's BOM, its been a slow sewing summer. ;-> Toni Anne

rebecca said...

I have spent my Summer catching up on a few Sue Spargo projects. Hand stitching and embroidery are sure slower than a good machine pieced quilt!

Cathy Buel said...

I love your new home. And the new pattern is to die for. I've been working on some gift quilts. I am ready to get a couple of them quilted. Enjoy your time in Florida. Hugs

Gill said...

I'm working on my second (of three) baby quilt! We've welcomed three babies this year!

Teri said...

Love your new block of the month, Beauty All Around! When will it start?!

Nancy E said...

A few years ago I visited St. George and it is such a pretty area. This summer I have been trying to finish some of my UFO's before I start a new projects. Enjoy your new home!

KMSC said...

I just found your blog reading another blogger's "blog list" but I have seen your patterns previously. I will also have to check out your Pinterest site. I love your new BOM!

Rose Marie said...

Have fun at your retreat! I'm just finishing up a EPP project that has been ongoing for about 4 years or so.
Love your new BOM. The sashing is quite striking/different!

Sarah said...

This summer I've been hand quilting some cushion covers, as we've been on the road most of the summer. Now that we're home and I'm reunited with my sewing machine I'm making a quilt top and table runner, too! sarah@forrussia.org

This is a beautiful pattern. What a wonderful giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win.
