Give-away Winner and Low Volume Inspiration

Congratulations to #117 Rhonda D.! And thanks everyone for all your comments. It was a fun week. I enjoyed reading everyone's comments and checking out so many new blogs in the hop! I am always inspired by how many talented quilters there are out there!

I was really fun to introduce Low Volume Quilting to so many of you. So many of you commented that you had never heard of it before or that you wanted to try it that I thought it would be fun to host a Low Volume Swap on Flickr. What do you think? Would you want to participate in a swap? Let me know in the comments - it takes 32 to do the swap (including me!)

For fun I set up a Pinterest board with a few images I found of Low Volume fabrics and quilts. Here is the link:

Design Camp Low Volume Pinterest Board

I just finished two low volume quilts this week. There are for my cousin's new born twins. There were inspired from one of the projects in Elizabeth Hartman's Inspired Modern Quilts Craftsy Class. I reviewed her class a while back -- here is a link to that post:

Inspired Modern Quilts by Elizabeth Hartman

If you want to take her class (I highly recommend it!) you will get $10 off by using the link from my review post. It is a fun and inspiring class!

Did you think I'd forget to post pictures of my quilts? Of course not! I snapped these real quick last night at my mom's house, because I thought, I'm going to forget to do this before I send them off. So with out further ado: "Same but Different" for Lilana and Julian!

Happy Holidays & Happy Camping!

5th Birthday Quilting Gallery Blog Hop Give-Away!

The Quilting Gallery is hosting another gigantic blog hop and give-away with over 150 blogs participating! The party is in celebration of the Quilting Gallery's 5th Birthday on December 10th. Happy Birthday Quilting Gallery! The party starts on December 9th and goes until the 15th. Good luck everyone!
I am giving away a set of 12 "low-volume" 10" x 10" quilting cotton print fabrics and a copy of 'Quilt Your Stash!' All you have to do to win is to leave me a comment so I know how to find you if you are the lucky winner! Of course you are welcome to follow me - I am always happy to meet new campers!
If you haven't tried a low volume quilting project yet this is a great little starter set. There are several projects in the 'Quilt Your Stash' issue that would work well as low volume projects. If you want more inspiration check out the flickr group Low Volume QAL or read more about low volume quilting on Quilting Daily.

I will draw a name using the Random Number Generator on December 15th after 9pm PST and announce the winner on Sunday the 16th. I won't be able to ship internationally (sorry folks) but I'll ship anywhere in the US.
Good luck and happy camping!

PS - just for fun I will add 5 extra entries for the person who is my 100th follower in honor of the QGs 5th birthday. May the fifth be with you (I know, that doesn't really work, but hey, why not!)
PSS - you don't have to follow to win.

12/12/12*PSPS - This just in - we have passed 100 campers! Yipee! So to celebrate I am going to give all my new followers who joined for this hop an extra chance to win. I will go back through your comments and make sure to mark down who joined up and I will add a second chance for any new followers. AND if you have read this far, the 112th follower will get an extra five chances to win. Happy 12/12/12 day!
