Man, I am so lazy! Not only did I do basically nothing to promote my giveaway, I didn't even get around to drawing the winner yesterday! It's kinda embarassing, really. I don't think I'll be attempting a giveway again anytime soon. I really wish I would have known about the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day sooner too! I found out about it the day before and assumed it was too late to enter. I found many awesome blogs over the past 3 days hopping around that!

Alright, so... 4 numbers in a hat and the winner is... new follower (hey I got 1 new follower, right?) Elizabeth! I've sent you an email :)

Okay, now on to quilty things:

Here is my finishsed Parisville quilt top

Pomegranate Parisville Quilt Top

This whole thing is kinda improvised. I had no intentions of cutting a bunch of 5.5" squares for this, but I made a cutting mistake with the very first cut into the fabric and had to change my plans. I just started cutting squares with no real idea. I added the border when I decided the quilt wasn't big enough. This finished top is 55" x 65". What do you think? I like it!

I actually started quilting this last night so the final product should be here for viewing pleasure soon! Oh and I'm using a polyester batting (Soft and Bright) and I love it! I don't know why I avoided poly batting for so long. It's light by sturdy and my quilt sandwich feels pretty cuddly already. And it's cheap too (I actually got 3 queen size for $21 on Cyber Monday--heck yes)!


  1. Awesome job Amber! I love the red in this quilt you are so talented :-)

  2. Wow... I won?! woah. Even though there were only 4 of us, I'm still shocked!
    Thank you so much :D
    I love the quilt top, great color combo!
    Happy Holidays!

    Oh, and ps. I'd still be your follower even if I hadn't won ;) hehe

  3. I know, great odds right? You lucky duck ;)
