I've gotten some emails about my quilt front. I was planning on waiting to tell you about it when I had batted, binded, and finished it...but I have such an exciting giveaway planned that I have to tell you all about it now!
I found the pattern for this quilt a few months ago when I was still barely able to thread my machine by myself. I contacted a quilting friend of my Mom's (Hi, Holly!) and she said the tutorial was well written and the pattern easy to understand (Hi, Katy!). The next step would be getting the fabric...here comes the exciting part!
I found Joy of a Joyful Soul Fabrics (don't you LOVE that name?!) and told her that I was planning on making and blogging this quilt, did she have the fat quarters for sale...do you know what she said? Joy not only had them, she gave a set to me AND sent a second set for YOU! She wanted me to have them as well as give a set away! You see, the fabrics in this quilt are from none other than Jennifer Paganelli and she is a big fan of Jennifer's too!
the quilt is very, very easy...I found it easiest to make it assembly line style.
I cut all of my squares out (the big and small) and matched them up
lots of beautiful scraps...fabric ribbon to be made!

I had enough to make a full size quilt and intended on making this for my bed, but the girls fell in love with it. We are planning on getting twin beds for them and letting them share a room this fall, so I went a little rogue with the pattern...I divided up my quilt, added an extra row (I already had some additional fabric from this line) and a border to make two twin size quilt fronts.
Joy carries beautiful fabrics and LOTS and LOTS of Jennifer Paganelli! Her prices are wonderful and she has a ton of quilting kits to choose from. A talented quilter herself, Joy knows what quilters and seamstresses want and need. You can find her on Facebook, which lets you get a peek into her latest project and an exclusive view into her shop's latest deals.
Joy is giving you a HUGE gift...an entire set of fat quarters to make the quilt I made (also seen here) and we are throwing in the fabric for the back and binding. The giveaway is open to all blog followers and all you have to do is visit her on Facebook and tell me what your favorite quilt kit or project is...believe me, there are a LOT to choose from! Even if you are not a "quilter" you can make this!
I will pick a winner on Oct 3 and post the winner here! Fingers crossed for you!
