Design Wall Monday and Pay It Forward

I got a bit of sewing done this weekend and I was able to finish the top of my scrappy version of the Twisted quilt. For more information on this pattern by and others by Amber Johnson of Gigi's Thimble, click HERE.

 
I also made a smaller version in solids. I like the vertical chain on this one! Now if I could just find the time to quilt these...
 
 

Pay it Forward!

While I was participating in the UR Priceless Blog Hop, I came upon the opportunity to Pay It Forward on Greco Mara's blog. I jumped at the chance to participate and hope some of you do too.

I would love to Pay It Forward (PIF) and send YOU a crafty gift. So, I'm asking you to sign up by commenting on this post. International quilters are welcome.

1) On Wednesday, November 21st, I will draw three "winners" from the comments on this post. I will make a crafty gift for each of these people and send it to them within the next 45 days. (This little gift is a surprise, and I won't post about what I send until after all have been sent and received.)

2) To sign up to Pay It Forward, you need to commit to the project yourself... so you can pay it forward too! Just post this, or something similar on your blog so others can get involved.

3) You need to have an active blog of your own...{or some other way to post up your PIF info like a flickr, pinterest, or facebook account. Basically you'll need a place to announce your own PIF and to post some pics of the process.}

4) After notification that you have been chosen to play along, post something similar on your blog...so you can spread the Pay It Forward love. I will email you asking for your mailing address {and the online address where you are posting} so I can get your little treat in the mail. {Please make sure that your email address is visible on your profile or leave it in the comment.}

I am so excited about this opportunity and can't wait to send YOU a little gift.

If you're still interested after reading all of these "rules", please leave me a comment telling me your interest and favorite color. I hope to hear from a lot of people to make it more fun, don't you just love paying it forward?

I don't have an active quilting blog (or knitting blog for that matter these days) so I won't be joining the Pay it Forward.

I wonder if I would be eligible to win the crafty gift. I mean, I'm your favorite younger brother and all. I'd hate for international quilters to be mad at me for winning something from you when they didn't win. ;)

What a fantastic quilt, Joanne!
How have you been since Blogtoberfest? I just wanted to let you know that I'm hosting another (albeit gentler and more introspective) blog challenge over the month of December called #reverb12.
Would be so rapt if you joined us!

There's a little giveaway too. :-)

Take care,
