Aspen Glow QAL Prizes - YAY!

Sponsored by: 

Can you believe we made it to the finish line of our Aspen Glow Quilt Along?  I know this sounds cliche, but I seriously feel like we just started a couple of weeks ago. I am seriously in love with my finished quilt top, though, and I can't wait to be snuggled up under it now that the colder weather is starting to set in.

My fabulous Long Arm Quilter, Darby of the Quilted Squid, is helping us celebrate the end of our quilt along by sharing a special offer with you!  She's offering any of her all-over quilting designs for just 1¢ per square inch on your Aspen Glow quilt or any other project you'd like to have her quilt.  Contact her at zackory@yahoo.com for a consultation.  You can check out her fantastic work on her blog and view her available quilting designs on her pinterest page.  Thanks Darby - you rock!!

Ok ... now on to the prizes!!  Using the super-high-tech method of scraps of paper drawn out of my favorite coffee mug, congratulations to ....

Cheryl of Texas Quilting Gal -  you've won ... A Shape Cut™ Plus Ruler from June Tailor

Liz of Life on Fluke Lane - you've won ... A Shape Cut™ Ruler from June Tailor

Susan, AKA SCKett - you've won ... Some Beautiful Paper Goods from Kate & Birdie Paper Co

Ela, AKA Rhiela - you've won ... A Dritz Collectible Cushions Tea Pot Pin Cushion

I know this tea pot was originally part of the prize package, but it was too cute not to share.  I have a few more in stock - a couple of people had asked me about them, but I can't find your names.  Just email me (info@CorasQuilts.com) if you wanted to purchase one for $13+Shipping. :)

I'm emailing all of our prize winners this afternoon to get your mailing info!  Thanks again for making our Aspen Glow Quilt Along so great!  I'm going offline for a week or two, to catch up on a few things and to enjoy a stay-cation holiday week with my family.  Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!

Aspen Glow Quilt Along - Come Together!

Sponsored by: 

Welcome to the Aspen Glow quilt along!  Over the past three months, we've beeen putting together quilts based on our popular Aspen Glow pattern.  Join us any time and share your photos in our Flickr Group to be entered into drawings for fabulous prizes!  You can access any of the previous posts on our QAL Information Page.

Can you believe that we're here on our final post?  We'll be holding the prize drawing this coming Sunday, 11/23/14, so there's still plenty of time to post photos for entries.  You can view more information on how that works in this post.

After something like 4 bobbins of thread this weekend, and some awesome-afternoon-nap-sewing-time, my quilt is complete!  I extended all of my white borders by 2" each, just to have a quilt finishing at a solid 100" square- be sure to read the border instructions included in the pattern to avoid wavy, wrinkly borders!  

I'll share a photo of my finished top in Sunday's parade, but here are a few snapshots of the construction process, along with the beautiful willow tree that lives just beyond my sewing machine!  If you follow me on instagram, these will probably look familiar. :)

I finished pressing and clipping all the threads on my monster-of-a-quilt last night!  As much as I love this quilt, I'm happy that it's finally finished, and boxed up to be shipped to my long arm quilter!

This may come as a bit of a surprise, but with as many quilts as I've made over the years, I still have a comforter from Target on my own bed.  With the temperatures finally starting to drop here in the foothills, though, I can't even begin to tell you how happy I'll be to finally be able to snuggle up under it!

A quick note on our Parade post, scheduled for Sunday:  If you have a finished quilt (or quilt top) that you'd like me to share here on the blog, email me your photo, along with a link to your blog or flickr account, to CorasQuilts{at}gmail{dot}com.
