“Made In 2012” Contest And Giveaway

CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. Carol is the WINNER. THANKS, EVERYONE, FOR ENTERING.


Hi everyone, this month is flying by so fast, I thought I had better get my Made In 2012 Guessing Game posted before February gets here.

Can you guess how productive I was last year?

I made quite a few items. Mostly small things and just a few quilts. And let’s not forget my pillowcases.

Here are a few of the things I made. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Drumroll please…

I cut a total of 945 squares (751 – 2 1/2″ squares and 194 – 5″ squares)

I am going to say you cut a total of 857.

Congrats, Fran, please send me your name and address so I can get something pretty mailed off to you.

And a special thank you to everyone who left a comment. I enjoyed reading each one.


Many of you commented you wanted to see what I was making. I am making a quilt called Hugs and Kisses. I saw it at Little Miss Shabby’s site (link at bottom of post) and really loved it. It seemed easy enough for me to make. Scraps I have. Tons of them. This quilt is tailor-made for me.

So far I have 40 blocks finished. Can you see the X’s and O’s? 😀

Each block measures 5″ square. I will probably make 100 more. As I finish more blocks, I will rearrange them to mix the colors up well. And I’ll do a post in a couple days so you can see how I am making mine. I am doing two things different from the tutorial.

Hopefully mine will be as pretty as hers.


Go here for Little Miss Shabby’s tutorial. (Hope it’s OK. I borrowed this photo from her site.)

All weekend was spent with my rotary cutter glued to my right hand. Standing over my cutting table. Shifting from my right foot to my left foot. Sighing about every hour. 😀 I even missed a couple of meals. I wanted to get my squares cut and over with.

You see, I saw this quilt on the net that I love and want to make. It takes 2 1/2″ and 5″ scrappy squares. Plus 3″ white squares which I cut from my stash. The scrappy squares took forever. I AGAIN went through all of my scraps.

This is what I ended up with.
