BOM borders -- and a giveaway! UPDATED

ALERT: This giveaway is closed now. Thank you for your interest. Please take a few moments and enjoy looking around our blog!

Please see update at the bottom!

Today is the day for the borders and finishing tips on the Jacquelynne Steves BOM, the Sew Sweet Simplicity quilt project! All of you subscribers will get your instructions today!

Here is how my four blocks went together . . . I wanted them to "float" in the white border, and I placed a pop of yellow as a cornerstone right in the center!

Here's another peek at the center and the cheerful thirties' prints:

Love those prints with pups, kitties, and kids!

Now I'll get it sandwiched and quilted . . . then bind it with a scrappy binding -- I love those!

Today if you pop over to Jacquelynne's blog, you'll find even more fun: a super-duper giveaway, so be sure to click over and enter to win!

Please, please, please, leave your email address as part of your comment....I have had about 90% of my commenters end up being no-reply! That means I can't tell you thanks for your sweet comments, and that also means I can't contact you if you win!!  Boo.
