Wednesday Giveaway Goes to Pamela Dempsey!

A 22″ X 20″ piece of Bamboo Felt is going to Pamela Dempsey. I use this bamboo/rayon blend felt in my applique caddies. What is an applique caddy? It’s a folder used to carry or store your applique blocks once you take them off the design wall. I’ve used them for years and they are efficient, portable, and easy to carry with you. Your applique pieces stay flat and pristine until you are ready to stitch them to the block. You can find a video with instructions on how to make and use an applique caddy with bamboo felt here.

I’ll be back with another Giveaway next Wednesday. Until then you can shop for all sorts of sewing notions, books, and other fun stuff at pieceocake.com!

Wednesday Giveaway – A Special Type of Bouquet!

Our winner will receive a pack of EPP papers to make 12—8″by8″ Bridal Bouquet blocks. I have always loved this pattern. I want to make it but, but haven’t found time yet. However, you can find lots of beautiful examples of this type of quilt by googling “Nosegay Quilt” or “Bridal Bouquet Quilt”. The photo below is just one of these.

Leave a comment/reply on this blog post to enter the drawing. A winner will be chosen by the random number generator tomorrow.
