Winner Announced

Sooooo sorry for the delay in announcing the winner of a copy of Scrap-Basket Sensations!
I got sidetracked this weekend with, among other things, this project. 

I won't even go into the "among other things" part -- too long and boring. The exciting news is that the winner has been determined by the random number generator.

Congratulations, Nicole!  If you'll send me your mailing address, I'll send your book.  Thank you all for playing along.  If you missed the Sew Scraps Along over at Pleasant Home, hop on over and check it out.  And don't forget to enter the drawing for the grand prize giveaway while you're there. 

Have a super week!

Sew Scraps Along

Have you been following along with Jodi during her month-long Sew Scraps Along over at Pleasant Home?  If not, you've really missed some fabulous posts full of scrappy inspiration -- featured bloggers, featured tutorials, photographs of incredible quilts, prizes, and Jodi's own scrappy projects.  (I wonder if she sleeps.)  If you love scrappy quilts as much as I do, scoot on over there. 

This week, Jodi is featuring my tutorial for the 60-Degree Quilt.  She'll be sharing her version of this quilt, and I'm so anxious to see it. 

You can find the first and second parts of the tutorial here. I've had to put this project aside for just a while to finish some other things, but I'll get back to it soon and show you how I put the blocks together.  This has been such a fun quilt to make -- every block is a surprise.  And it's a great project for using up lots of scraps.

As part of the Sew Scraps Along, I'm giving away a copy of my book, Scrap-Basket Sensations.  If you'd like to win a copy, just leave a comment here.  Comments will be closed Saturday at midnight.  Good luck!  And have fun over at Jodi's!
