Art Quilt Giveaway...

Not too long ago, my friend, Helen gave me an art quilt. She said it had been given to her, but she wanted me to have it to do with as I saw fit. I already have soooo many handbags that I can't possibly use one more. I have more than a few quilts,  too, so I've decided to share it with one of my lucky blog friends. I'm offering it as a giveaway!
The quilter who created the quilt attached actual gloves in each corner, and it's very well made. There are handbags of all shapes and sizes...
and it's embellished with laces, beads, buttons and ribbons. It's really wonderful and would even make a fun dress-up quilt for a little lady in your life. (I would be careful with really little girls, though, because of some of the embellishments.)

It measures 44" long by 33" wide and has a matching hanging sleeve already attached. I know that someone is going to be the lucky winner.
To enter the drawing for this art quilt, just leave a comment on this post telling me what you like to read about on my blog. I'll draw one name on Tuesday evening at 10 pm and I'll announce the winner on Wednesday.

Good Luck!

I also want to remind you that Memory Lane Monday will be this coming Monday (April 30th). Anyone who has a special memory they'd like to share with their readers can post on their own blog on Monday and then link back here. The link will be open for latecomers until Friday (May 4th). I'll have my post up Sunday evening so that you can start linking Sunday for Monday's post. I'd love to have you join me for a stroll down Memory Lane.

Hi Donna, What a lovely quilt.I've never seen one like it. I'd love to have the chance to share it with my UK quilting friends. What do I like to read about in your blog. It would be easy to say 'everything', because I do, but I must admit I've fallen head over heels with Tag, abd his Tuesday newsletters are always welcome. Blessings Lesley UK

I love reading about your projects, and about darling Tag.

Donna Dear it seems to be unanimous that we all love reading your posts and seeing all of your projects...however it is Tag who steals our hearts! Reading his adventures is always a joy. This quilt is such a feminine piece of art and it would be fun to display. You are so kind and generous to share it with others. Terrific Thursday to you and Tag...

Hi Donna - What a lovely gift. I would give it to my sister for her birthday, whose first spoken word was pocketbook. She might in turn give it to her granddaughter who would really enjoy it in her bedroom.
I think you are a really nice, caring and thoughtful person. You're everything I'd want in a good friend.
I like your artistic eye - the styles and colors you pick. Martinique - need I say more?
PS Tag steals your thunder but I bet you're okay with that! He is very cute. Toni

The quilt is gorgeous and I would LOVE to display it in my cottage!
Thank you for BEING YOU and a chance at winning,
Have a fun weekend,
Hugs to you,
Donna
