In the spirit of giving...

We'll, it's kind of a special occasion around here.  It's my 150th blog post AND it's Christmas time, so I thought it was definitely time for a giveaway!  I've been thinking about all of you and the kindness you've shown me over the past year and a half since I've started blogging.  I wanted to make you a little something so I came up with this scrappy runner.  It's a little Christmas-y (lots of different greens, whites, & beiges) but you might be able to get away with using it other times of the year too.  I love having lots of table toppers this time of year.  It just finishes things off sometimes. 


The runner measures 31" x 12.5" and it's REALLY scrappy (even the back and binding are pieced) so, if you like it... or you don't like it, but think maybe someone you know might like it...then leave me some comment love below. 


The giveaway closes at NOON on Tuesday, December 15th.  Don't be shy to enter.  Anyone can enter and you don't have do any work for this one!  Leaving a friendly comment wouldn't hurt though:)  I'll ship to wherever and TRY to get it there by Christmas.  




Plus, a cute little snowflake, from me to you!

I love scappy! I'm working on a scrappy Christmas runner now but I have a feeling it'll end up being a "winter" runner as I don't know if I'll get it done :)

Connie said...

Amber, another amazing milepost for you--150 posts, and who knows how many quilts and giveaways you've done! What a proud mom I am! Now that your Christmas stuff is all done, I'll have to drive over and see it! How blessed I am that I can drive and see it now and not just wish I could visit you from Washington state. Yay for us! Love you, Hon! And, of course, I'd be honored to be in your drawing.

Julia said...

I've been checking out your blog for a while but haven't commented. I'm being really selfish in commenting now considering that I would LOVE the tablerunner! I've just barely started quilting this year and absolutely love it. So I found a bunch of blogs that inspire me to want to do more of it and yours was one of them! Thanks for the inspiration!

Mama Pea Quilts said...

Hi, Amber - Thanks again for commenting on my blog. I just love it that we quilters "find" each other and instantly feel like we've made a new friend. Quilting really is the tie that binds. I will be following your blog now that I've found you.

P.S. Your table runner is lovely!

~kathy said...

Lovely Amber! Your "scappy" is better than my refined any day.

Barb said...

love the runner....
