Silly Me Saturday Giveaway

I was going to call this the "I'm an Idiot Giveaway," but I try to avoid negative self-talk.
But really.

See this?

 And this?

Guess what they have in common?

Yep, I bought them when I already owned them.  When I saw "We Love Color" on several blogs, I couldn't wait for it to hit my LQS, so I ordered it from Amazon.  Then when I saw it at Ruth's Stitchery, I asked them to check the computer to see if I had already bought it.  Umm, their computer doesn't show purchases from Amazon.

And when Carrie showed photos of her new Schnibbles patterns, I completely forgot that I had subscribed to the Miss Rosie's Quilt Company Pattern Club from Fat Quarter Shop.  So I ordered the PDF version of all four of these patterns.

Silly me!  Lucky you!

Two readers will each win one either the book or all four Schnibbles patterns.  To enter:
  • Just leave a comment on THIS post.  It would make me feel better if you told me about something you accidentally purchased in duplicate, but you don't have to.  
  • Be sure to leave your contact info if you're a no reply commenter.
  • International entries welcome.
  • Giveaway ends next Saturday, July 14 at noon, MDT.

Good luck!

Finish it up Friday

My usual Friday linky party is taking the summer off, so I googled "Friday Finish Linky" and found this great blog, Quokka Quilts.  According to Laura, "A quokka is a West Australian marsupial which lives mostly on Rottnest Island, Western Australia."

Now I really, really want to visit Australia!

Today's finish is a Fat Quarter Fun quilt, "Hot Tamale" from Villa Rosa Designs.  The fabrics are mostly from Anthropology, and I quilted it myself on Meggie.  Sadly, the thread color isn't visible in this photo, but it is a wonderful multi-colored thread from YLI.

Of course, I used Susie's Magic Binding to finish it!

This pretty thing is going to Camille in Jackson, Wyoming.  Camille has a gift for always saying "I want that one" of a quilt that is already promised.  So Camille, this one is for you!

Come back tomorrow for the announcement of my "Silly Me Giveaway."
