Ebony over at Lovebug Studios is having a Accuquilt GO! giveaway. It runs until September 1st. This isn't your regular 'leave a comment and win' giveaway, this one requires ALOT of work.How much work you ask? Here is a small sample of what I've done to earn the points I have.
If you must know, thats 22 pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer. I've also done a few quilts myself and with the help of the Hibiscus Quilt Guild of South Florida, which I'm proud to say, I am the northern most member, has graciously decided to pitch in and help in my name. To see the pictures of the quilts the guild has donated in my name, check out the Accuquilt page on Facebook. Some of the people who've entered have help as well. My good friend Barb from Bejeweled Quilts by Barb is very actively helping her sister Jeanette. I must say Barb can whip out the pillowcases!!! If I win, thats great! But if I don't, at least everything I've been motivated to make will go to very worthy causes. And when it comes down to it, thats what is important.
If you haven't been following this contest on facebook, I posted this picture to show what my sewing area looks like. I've been sewing non-stop for 2 weeks now (I really NEED a GO! cutter and more fabric!!) .
This is NOT a staged photo. My sewing area actually looks this good!!!
With a month left, there is going to be alot of projects completed and posted. I'm guessing that the winner will have somewhere in the 1500 t0 2000 point range. Which is a TON of projects given the points assigned to each.
If you're into high octane quilting, stay tuned, this is going to be fun, and stressful. But it all goes to great organizations!! And thats what matters.
