I'm "under the weather," but YOU can enter the giveaway!

Sorry it's been quiet around here.

Have you heard those crickets?

Hasn't been much sewing going on, either. (Snap.)


Here's why:


I (almost) smiled when I found that image, since that is exactly what my handy dandy thermometer said.
Almost smiled.
Too tired to actually do that. (I know, right? Can I have some cheese with my whine?)

Our fab sponsor has come to the rescue . . . . while I take some time off to get better, you peeps can enter this giveaway!!


Fat Quarter Shop is just about the most fun place ever to shop, don't you think?

They have all the newest stuff for us to drool over, flash sales that are spectacular bargains, and they come up with neat mysteries and kits, too. And when I see something on their site that I want to make, I usually see a pattern or some templates!


Introducing the Orange Peel Set, from the It's so Emma division of the Fat Quarter Shop!

Orange these the cutest things? Aw, come on, humor me, I'm ill. (Grin) No more puns, I promise!

The awesome part of this is that in the set of templates, there are four sizes -- you can use these with any of these size squares of fabric: 3 inch, 4 inch, 5 inch, or 6 inch, for a monster huge quilt. The kind that would be lovely and warm and I could nap in it . . . .

Oh, pardon me. I'll tell you about the giveaway before I drowse off.

Two of you will win a prize package of these templates, plus these four patterns to make these quilts:


Jewel -- this one starts as a lap quilt, but you could make it larger . . .


Grapevine -- this one starts out as a crib or a lap size, but these are so easy! You could make a bed quilt in no time!

Round Robin -- they've included options for crib, lap, twin, and queen on this one. Just picture this from your scraps and your stash!


And this one is Goldie -- so cute, the little fishies! This one starts as a crib or lap size.

And who says you must make quilts? I LOVE this creative idea:


Here's how you can win . . . . leave a comment here with your best cough remedy. Seriously. My head hurts, and my chest does, too. The over the counter stuff isn't working!

So tell me if you have an old family recipe that will help me out, OK? And it's not required, but if you would like to follow here at the Lilypad, you can leave a second entry: tell me how you follow.

We'll leave this giveaway open for a week, and then choose our two winners!!
(PLEASE leave your email as part of your comment....like this: name(at)gmail(dot)com. I had SO MANY no-reply comments last time! I want to choose your comment for a prize winner!!)

Good luck!!

Love,




PS If you can't stand it, the templates and the patterns are available now at the Fat Quarter Shop! You can get the patterns as printed or as pdfs!
And please understand if I don't answer all the comments this time....I will probably be sleeping.
