More Quilt Top, 100th Post and Giveaway!!!

Hello!!! Wow it's already my 100th post! I never thought I'd ever come up with so much to share! In celebration of my 100th post it's giveaway time!!!! I decided on a spring theme with a little love thrown in...a little love for all my wonderful friends and followers!!! Below is just one item in my giveaway...more will be added through the week. Just leave me a comment any time I post this week, each comment will get an entry, so if you comment each day you get more chances to win! I will draw a lucky winner on Friday!!!

A little 4x4 frame with a felt applique, made by me. Inspired by the Premiere Issue of Homegrown Hospitality which I picked up at Archiver's. I hope you all like it! More items will be added remember! A little spring and a little love!
On to the quilt progress. First off, I had extra fabric and some frames that I loved and picked up for the apartment last year. I didn't know what to put in the frames until I got this fabric. So, here's another color project for the dark drab apartment...

I hope you can see the pretty fabric when you enlarge the photo!
Here is the completed quilt top. I would have done a few things differently on the left side had a paid closer attention to the directions picture and hadn't followed the directions exactly. The seams didn't meet up, I thought it was more random and they weren't suppose to meet up until I re-looked at the picture. Oh well, sew and learn! Hubby won't mind! I bought the backing fabric on Saturday and will pick up some batting on Friday (it's 50% off at Joann's then plus an extra 10% of coupon!!!).

Hubby likes the fabric : )

I hope you all enjoy your day! I am off to clean and go to the dry cleaner. Fun stuff! Aren't you jealous!?!

SomehI lost your blog---sorry about that. Now I do remember that we had some interesting things in common. I have put you on my on-screen Reading Nook so I can't do that again--hopefully. You know, after nearly 2 years on the computer, I still screw up pretty regular! LOL
Love your quilt. I am going to trying to learn. DH got me a new sewing machine and he is expecting great things! LOL
I especially love how you framed the leftovers. Very chic!

Congrats on your 100th post. I love your felt applique-it is so very cute!

Your quilt is beautiful and an amazing job for a first project. The framed fabric will be so nice as an accent.

I'm not jealous of your cleaning, though. I've got plenty of my own to do-and here I sit reading blogs.
