little quilt monday~~~giveaway day

Little Quilt Monday

Well, after a wonderful visit to South Africa, I am back!
It was such a special place, I have so much I could tell you, but I know
that I better not try to tell you everything in one blog post : )

As you can tell by the photo above, we got to see the beautiful animals, and I took
many pictures that I will post from time to time on my blog.
I also gave some baby quilts to some special moms/babies.  
Here are a couple of them in the photos below:

I visited a school in one of the villages, and the children sang their South African
 national anthem for me.

I will tell you bits and pieces as I blog, but for now I want to
have a giveaway to show my appreciation to my followers.

OH, I do have a mini quilt to show you, but I am taking part in a blog hop called 
Bowls With Borders, and I am scheduled to show my mini tomorrow, so come
check out how I did with the paper piecing pattern tomorrow : )

Today I am going to have a giveaway to celebrate my return to blogging.
Although the fabric isn't from Africa, I found some batiks that remind me
of the colors that I saw in South Africa.  There are 6 fat quarters and this is
a giveaway for the followers of my blog~~~the giveaway will end on Friday at noon.
To enter, just leave me a comment.

This giveaway has ended.  The winner is LynCC and she
has been contacted by email.

Now it is your turn to link up something to

Little Quilt Monday

1.  This link-up party is for any small project.  For example, mini quilts, doll quilts, baby quilts, place mats, mug rugs, purses,
wall quilts, table runners, etc.

2.  They can be a WIP(work-in-progress) or finished.

3.  If it is something from the past there is no need to write a new blog post, just link the one that you have already written, and please link back to my blog post. 
 I have added
the code to my button if you would like to add that to your blog.

4.   If you are interested, you can add your pictures to my flickr group here, or join my Facebook group here. 

Let's inspire each other!

Awesome. I wish I could go on a trip like that. I would love to be able to see some of the people I gift my quilts to. Usually I am mailing them some where and never get to meet the people who receive them.

Beautiful pictures! Beautiful fabrics! Thanks for a fun giveaway! Our pastor and his wife will be visiting West Africa this fall, and I & others are working on making some small gifts to send with them, to give away on their trip. It's fun to think about making something useful and beautiful that will make someone smile.
