Temptations and a Contest

All in one!

Check out this amazing Block of the month at the Fat Quarter Shop. It is the Civil War Tribute Quilt, and I am oh-so-tempted to jump in on this one, even though the total cost is bit high. It is a big quilt when finished and would probably fit my California king sized bed if I add a border to the outside.

Here's the contest aspect of it--the Fat Quarter Shop is giving away a $100 gift certificate! Follow this link and visit the Fat Quarter Shop and enter a comment for an entry. Put a link on your blog for another chance to win! Sign up for the BOM and let them know on the blog for another 5 chances to win. No affiliation with the Fat Quarter Shop, just an extremely satisfied customer.

I love Civil War prints to Jan, I have quite a collection now. The BOM quilt is beautiful, I agree the price per month plus shipping is a bit steep. Plus I'm thinking more about the cost of getting it quilted when it's finished. Tempting---but a lot to consider.

I'd love to get the stories behind the blocks, but the sheer number of half square triangles has scared the bujeebers out of me. (I'll pass!) Oh & I have soooooo many UFO's why add another to the guilt train?

Okay, I have to admit, even I was tempted by this one. And then I wondered about Kathy B with that feathered star in the middle... LOL.

I keep looking at this and thinking....hmmmm....... But then I look at the Bonnie Blue patterns I want to make, the bazillion 9 patches I have to put together, the Vicksburg fabrics and...........Sigh.....
Plus PIQF is coming and I feel some retail therapy is needed :-))
But you go for it!!!
