10 Year Celebratory Giveaway – November

Posted on: November 7th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Thank you ALL!!!

We are having another GIVEAWAY!!!

It’s time to celebrate YOU!

I began this little blog back in 2012, keeping a diary of my quilting journey, while searching to connect with the online quilting community. That lovely group of online supporters and encouragers that I have been blessed to come to know, are people just like you. And I wouldn’t have made it this far without each and every one of YOU!

Thank you all for following along.

No matter which method you choose!

Today I am sharing some sneak peeks at Christmas projects I have been working on for my post coming on November 10th for the Passport to Quilting – Christmas Edition BEGINS!!! In this upcoming post, I will be sharing a free tutorial for this cool Car and Christmas Tree 12 inch block. I think it pairs nicely with the Have a Jolly Little Christmas set. Pictured below is the Poinsettia alternated with the Car and Christmas Tree block.

Please HELP!

This past weekend and today, I have been attempting to declutter this blog. Ten years of blogging required a little housecleaning on the site, so if you find broken links or there’s something you can’t find, please email me!

A great big thank you to all those who participated in last month’s Octobrrr Giveaway. The winners have all been notified by email if they commented on the blog post, or thorough Instagram or FaceBook messaging if they commented on those posts.

Here is another chance to WIN!

The prizes for the Novembrr Giveaway are these three quilted items below…

Blue and Yellow Background – Peace Doves table runner and 5 Paper Patterns.

Pair of Handsome Hounds wall hangings and 5 Paper Patterns.

Duck Duck Goose table runner and 5 Paper Patterns.

PLUS!!! There will be 10 prizes of $20 Gift Cards from Mad About Patchwork!

This Novembrrr GIVEAWAY is open to everyone who leaves a comment on my Instagram postFacebook post or here on this blog post.

This month’s draw will take place November 30th.

Comments will be closed during the day of the drawing. Winners will be announced soon after and December’s Celebration will be introduced.

    Lorna!!! Your generosity is overwhelming! Thank you for sending me the paper patterns last month. They are still en route from Canada to the US, but I am so excited! Your perseverence and sewing speed are inspiring. All of your November quilts are adorable. I am especially glad to see the Ukraine peace doves… the war rages on and it is good to keep the people in our hearts. All the best to you, Jane

    The new car and tree block is so cute. Just getting ready to get my Christmas block of the month quilt out. I have used the individual blocks so many times. I love your organic wavy quilting and have been successful trying it on small articles. Hoping I am soon brave enough to try it on a large quilt. Thank you for sharing with us.
