I'm a Guest Blogger

Last year I got the surprise of my life when Leona asked would I write a guest blog post for her. "Who? Me? I'm not a quilt shop! or a designer! or anything!".
Leona is starting a new series where she is introducing her followers to each other, which I think is a fantastic idea and it will be a whole lot of fun to read about other quilter's adventures.
So now I am a Guest Blogger *blushes*
You'll find the post over at Leona's Quilting Adventure

Now in honour of this special occasion I think there should be a Giveaway.
In my post I said that there were some pieced hearts that I was going to make into something else.
So that is exactly what I am going to do.
One lucky reader will win the something else.
Since it is still summer holidays - meaning the house is full to the brim with children and the MaTH - finding time in the sewing room is a hit and miss affair, but I will definitely have it finished for you!
All you have to do is head over and have a look at Leona's blog (that's the only way you'll find out what you can win!) and then come back here and make a comment - anything that pops into your head.
I will leave this giveaway open till 27 January 2011- and announce the winner on the 28th January.

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...


  1. What popped into my head is that you are one clever quilary. I'd love to see the something become a table runner. Well done and congratulations on your guest post.

  2. Congratulations on your guest spot! The hearts tutorial was really clear! You could make some of the heart patches into a candle mat for Valentine's Day!

  3. Congratulations Quilary on your new position as guest blogger. I remember that sewing machine!!!! Love the tutorial- might even have a go myself!!! Have a great weekend.

  4. That's the CUTEST little heart I've ever seen!! I love how easily it goes together! Congrats on being the newest blogger of the year! (and THANKS for such a sweet giveaway!)

  5. Thank you so much for coming to follow me! I enjoyed your post on Leona the other day! I would LOVE a red sewing machine. So cool! Alas I am stuck with my 11 year old daughter's little Janome. Yes, I am 34 years old with no machine of my own. :)

    I love your nicknames too, by the way.
