Quilt Gallery's 4th Anniversary Celebration
I hope you will join in the fun give aways here at Michele's (a.k.a. mishka) Quilt Gallery in celebration of 4 wonderful years. Over 200 bloggers from 20 countries are participating and a full list will be found on the site by midnight.
This is my give away. I know everyone likes to win fabric, but I am sure there will be plenty of that offered. So I decided for this special occassion to offer a piece that is dear to me. It's Christmas, and one gives from the heart. This is a self-design and one of a kind wallhanging that started me into quilting. Always an avid cross stitcher, I began experimenting with fabric framing my pieces - adding my signature metalic and silk threads, and beading. This was designed for entry into the 2008 Black Threads International Celebration of the African Woman Quilt Show. "Jubilation" has traveled and now home - looking for a new home.
This is a close up of the center. Over 200 color floss were used from 4 different companies as well as some hand dyed. Sulky metalic and silk thread were used in the cross stitch as well as to quilt - all quilting is done by hand. There is beading in the cross stitch center as well as thru the fabric framing. It is 29" wide by 32" in length. Hanging sleeve and labeled - another label will be attached with dedication to winner. This has been washed and care instructions will be given. You do not have to be a follower, but certainly welcomed. I will ship international and winner will be chosen at midnight, December 17th with name announced on the 18th - all efforts will be made to contact winner so be sure your e-mail information is available.
Enjoy the Blog Hop Party,
