Got the quilting accomplished today and had some fun with my mangle this morning. I got through an entire bucket of fabric scraps in about 20 minutes. I promise to make a video of the wonders of the mangle to show you just what it can do! I think everyone needs one of these fancy, old fashioned ironing machines. Thanks Carla for introducing me to this machine. I have no idea how I lived without this iron!
And now, for the moment some of you have been waiting for :) I still haven't taken a picture, because I'm not finished cutting the fabrics out, but they will be patriotic fabrics to make a red, white and blue version of this quilt, the Stretched Stars quilt. It will be bigger than this one, because I'm cutting the squares 6 1/2 inches and the triangles 6 1/2 inch finished using my Accuquilt Studio cutter. The squares will be white and the points on the stars will be either blues or reds. A great way to celebrate your favorite 4th of July Holiday, or Labor Day or Memorial Day, or to give to your local Veteran's home or Quilts of Valor.
The contest is open to US residents only, sorry, can't afford international postage :(
Here's the rules: You must be a follower (I'm trying to get more followers so Accuquilt will allow me to give away a Baby Go or a Go! fabric cutter) and leave one comment per person. You are welcome to post on your blog if you want, but not necessary.
Contest ends July 6th at midnight. I will pick a winner on July 7th when I wake up and notify the winner by email and on the blog. If you are no reply and I can't get ahold of you, I will pick a different winner, so make sure I can get ahold of you.
