Laura's Quilt and How About A GIVEAWAY?

Blogging friend Laura of Pine Ridge Quilter sent me this beauty to quilt for her.  Laura has just been the most wonderful person to quilt for I tell you, pleasant in every way and always so cheerful to talk with!  I am so honored that she would send her quilts to me.

I just love the colors of this quilt.  I chose a cream thread to coordinate with the front and back.  Laura allowed me to quilt these however I wanted, oh isn't that music to a long arm quilter's ears??  :)  I chose my favorite paisely/floral free hand works so well with prim, traditional, and modern quilts alike.

LOVE this backing fabric.  I'm a fan of creamy or white backings.  I just love the texture once quilted!

I will post more of Laura's quilts in the upcoming days, and of course I've been promising a lesson on feathers and my birthday presents from the Hubby!  I promise I will get there!  I'm a girl who keeps her word.  :)

Other exciting happenings this week, I'm headed to the Sewing and Quilt Expo in Cleveland, Ohio!  I have never been before so I'm really looking forward to it.  My Mother is coming with me so we are planning to spend the day doing some hard core shopping and spying of beautiful quilts!!!

I know all of you love a good GIVEAWAY!!!

So here's the deal - I'm going to have a Facebook friend giveaway in the upcoming week or so...but first, I want to know what YOU would like to WIN!

"Like" The Pumpkin Patch Quilter on Facebook  and answer my post asking which of the three Moda Charm Packs mentioned you would like to win!  Whichever pack gets the most votes will be given away to one of my Facebook followers!

Then, keep an eye out here on my blog and on FaceBook for the giveaway!
