Brrr! quilt top and a giveaway

This weekend I got a quick little quilt top sewn up using the Brrr! fabric by Laurie Wisburn. The wind would not cooperate with me at all while I was taking this photo, but you get the idea…


You all know that I’m not one to use a ton of patterned fabrics but I felt that a little went a long way with this adorable line. Even my husband thinks it’s really cute. Guess we’ll be keeping this one for the lil’ guy on the way!


Oh but hey! There’s something for you too!


How about fat quarters of the whole line? Drop me a comment and I’ll be picking a winner at random on Friday the 6th. Good luck!

    What a great idea! But then I have liked every quilt that I’ve seen made up with this fabric-June seems so far away. After all, it’s not like I have nothing else to do until then LOL.
