Hodgepodge Patchwork Tuesday - My Garden Angel and another Double Double May for Me Quilting Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed.  Thanks to everyone who entered!  
Check the Giveaway and May for Me page for the current Giveaways.

I love these little wall hangings.  I can't seem to stop making them once I start.  I love cutting out all the little pieces and I especially love quilting them.  It's like I am coloring.  This one is called Blanche the Garden Angel from Patch Abilities Wall hangings.   

I call mine "Miss Molly" !  I particularly like the swirly curly hair on my Miss Molly! Her boots remind me of my hiking boots from college. I not only wore them to hike up on Rib Mountain, but I also wore them to class everyday in the winter.  It was very cold in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.   They kept my toes nice and warm.

 Maybe that is what it is about these wall hangings... I see something in them that brings back a fond memory.

Today is the last day of May, so here is another May for Me Giveaway!  It's another Double Double Quilting Giveaway.  It is $20.00 off my Machine Quilting Services on a Lap Size Quilt or larger. (approximately 45" X 65"). 

I am giving away 2 prizes - 2 gift certificates good for one year thru' June 16, 2012.  So two of you will be winners!  Additional Bonus:  If you book your quilting date for September 2011, you will can get an extra $10.00 off the quilting! So that's $30.00 off the quilting on a lap size quilt or larger.

Cute wallhanging. That curly hair is just the sort one is tempted to pull just enough to watch it spring back. Thanks for the givewaway chance.

Deborah in Atlanta said...

Oh how adorable Blanche is! You are totally awesome. And generous. So ener me in teh drawing.

Deb said...

I'm a follower and would also say I'd leave the design up to you altho a simple meandering suits me fine.

Love your work. I would have to decide on the quilt first. Too many finished tops that I am scared to quilt.

Debbie said...

I am a follower, Marcia. I hate to sound cheap, but I would probably want the least expensive freestyle quilting!

Ann said...


I love the hair on your wallhanging. I'm not sure what I would pick. If I win, I'll send you my quilt and we can talk about it. :)

I am a new follower. (Glad to have found you via Quilty Giveaways). I don't know about the quilting pattern. I'd want to talk about it I guess!

Thanks for the giveaway!

I am a new follower. I choose a overall stipple with heart shapes thrown in here and there.
