the Scraptabulous Quilt Tutorial

This little quilt is so easy, I'm pretty sure most of you can look at it and make it. But just in case you can't, I've made a little tutorial. The quilt is fun and fast. It's just my take on a traditional quilt called a Snowball Quilt. It's normally made out of kind of boring fabrics, lots of grays and whites. I just spiced it up and wrote up some instructions.

So, to kick off the tutorial, I'm giving away two complete sets of blocks for the tops. Yup, that's right. 30 already cut and pressed large squares and 120 cut and pressed small squares. Times two! To enter, just leave me a comment. For two extra entries, blog, tweet or facebook it and then leave me a comment again. For two more entries, become my facebook fan.(You don't need to comment about that one. I'll just add in the fans.) You can have a total of 5 entries! I'll end the contest on Wednesday, December 8 so you will still have plenty of time to sew it up. Good luck!

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galations 5:22-23

Love,
xoxo

I think this would be adorable. My three year old woke up one morning and said half asleep that she needed a bed for her baby. we found one in the classifieds and now I have to doll it up. This would help alot.
