My Pay it Forward Giveaway

Earlier in December, some of you may have read about the art quilt that was anonymously commissioned for me by one of my very kind and generous readers. I received this sweet little art quilt made by Melody at Fibermania on Christmas Eve. How's that for timing?

Isn't it sweet? This blogging world is wonderful!
I've taken this long to get around to writing about it because I had something in mind. I want to pay my lovely surprise forward and I needed to bring home my work from the local shop and I needed to take some photos.
I have decided that I'd like to give away one of my small art quilts to a commenter. You may choose from one of the following:
This one measures about 9 1/2" by 16".
The next one called Joy measures about 13" by 15".
This last one, Cosmos, measures about 11 1/2" by 13 1/2".

Leave me a comment with your choice and I'll draw the winner on Friday night January 10th, DST.
I'm linking to The Needle and Thread Network.

The giveaway draw is now closed. Congrats to Annie S!

Hi Holly. Your little quilt from Melody is wonderful. Lucky you. I love all your work but I think I would pick "Joy". The colours are so lovely and the flowers are beautiful.

I love all of your little quilts and after looking at them closely several times have decided that I would pick Cosmos. Lucky you getting one of Melody's beautiful quilts.

They are all so pretty but I think I love number one the best. That is quite the give away. Thanks for the chance to win.

What a great way to pay it forward! I would be honored to have any of them but since I have to pick just one I think the first one would be my choice. Thanks for the chance.

Hello, just found your blog and have to comment that your first quilt is so full of light and movement, a beautiful piece to brighten up the dreary winter.

Dolores said...

I think that they are all lovely. I cannot choose. Anyone of them would be lovely on my wall.

O trabalho da Melody é fantastico!
Eu ficarei muito feliz se puder participar e mais ainda se ganhar um dos seus belos trabalhos florais. O primeiro é o meu preferido.
Obrigada pela chance!
Um abraço!

Melody's work is fantastic!
I'll be very happy if you can participate and even more if you win one of their beautiful floral work. The first is my favorite.
Thanks for the chance!
Hugs!

Hi Holly, Love the mini you received! What a lovely Christmas surprise. I love all your quilts, however, the first one sings to my heart. Thank you for the give away.

Nana said...

Each of the three of your creations is beautiful. It is the middle one, Joy, that absolutely captivates me though. It would be the one that I would chose. Thank you for the opportunity to win something so lovely in your generous act of paying it forward.

I have been following your blog for several months now and it has become a favourite of mine. Your work is beautiful and thanks so much for the chance to win!

Martha said...

I found your blog through Melody's--enjoy reading! You are generous to want to share, but it's hard to pick a favorite of your three beautiful pieces. Probably the second one, but love all.

Holly, I love your work and would be delighted to win any of these. The last one shown, "Cosmos" has a kind of softness to it though that I find especially appealing. Glad I checked your blog in time to get in on the giveaway.
