I am awed and humbled. My entry into the Riley Blake/Modern Quilt Guild challenge was selected as one of ten finalists out of 390 stinkin’ entries!! The top 3 winners will be chosen next Monday and suffice it to say, I will be on pins and needles for the next several days.
No matter how the competition turns out, I am extremely pleased and honored to have been a part of this challenge. This quilt pulled me out of my comfort zone and really drove home my desire to want to make more modern quilts.
I have to give a special shout out to two of my friends whose quilts also made the finals. (It sort of feels like the Quilting Olympics around here!) Congrats to Melissa, Leanne, and the other 7 gals in the top 10. They are all so amazing!

Now onto this week’s giveaway:
I have a 10 yard bolt of Riley Blake fabric to give away. It’s called Shades from their Basics Collection in the Granite colorway. It’s a rich mottled gray fabric with just a hint of purple, and would be perfect for your next quilt (modern or not).
I bought it thinking I would use it on the back of my challenge entry, but ended up going with the dark grey solid that was part of the challenge bundle.
So I could do what any sane quilter would do and throw it in my stash where it would probably languish for years on end. But hopefully you guys know by now that I’m a bit of a minimalist and not always sane about these things.
I’d rather give it to one of you where I know it will be put to good use. You just have to pinky promise that it won’t languish in your stash either, ok?
To enter, leave any old comment you like below. You can even just say hi. :-) The giveaway will run through next Wednesday, February 26th, and it’s open to all.
