American Made Brand Giveaway Winner


First of all Happy Birthday to my grandson Elliot! He is 7 today!

This giveaway worked out perfectly as we Americans get ready to celebrate Memorial day this weekend.
I finished up my quilt using the Quick Curved Ruler.


The quilting is simple, but I am happy with the way it turned out. What is your preference, heavy quilting or minimal quilting? I like lots, and lots of quilting.



The backing was from my stash and I love the striped binding, I think it makes the quilt.

Th winner of the American Made Brand fabrics is Caffeinated Cotton. Congratulations! Thanks to everyone who left comments telling me about their favorite state, they were a fun read!

PS: From the last post (Sea Shells) I did not get a ticket.....

Have a great weekend!

  1. looks great. I think this is the perfect balance of quilting. I don't like overly quilted pieces. I like even quilting.
    what a fun quilt for the upcoming holiday.

  2. Really nice quilt. I have the Quick Curve ruler and have played with it some, but have yet to make a full quilt with it - I'm thinking there will be one in my near future!
    My personal preference is light quilting for a snuggle quilt - a bit heavier on a show quilt (which none of mine are!) - I've seen some quilts that could stand in the corner by themselves - that's a bit much... just my opinion

  3. Happy Birthday Elliot!! I love your quilt! My preference for quilting depends on the quilt. I love the simple quilting on this quilt because the pretty dot fabric already adds so much interest. Congraulations to Caffinated Coffee, what a fun name for a blog.

  4. So excited to see my name and to win fabric. Never too much fabric. My daughter and I are thinking we might challenge each other to make a pillow cover using the fabric. We enjoy some friendly competition.
