Small Wall Hanging Giveaway

Well, it is small compared to that big, ol' snowman I offered in January!

I needed a break from machine quilting my spring shower curtain (yep, it's comin' along) this afternoon so started the sorting of some quilted pieces and doing some rearranging in my quilt room.


This "spring-ish" wall hanging was found under some bigger quilts, and I'd almost forgotten about it.  I made it way back in 2001 and my tastes have changed since then . . . I'm sure I won't use it again so am wondering if any of you would be interested in giving it a new home.

This size is approximately 27" across and 33" top to bottom and is machine quilted.  The colors, as you can see, are very much spring-themed.  The coloring in this photo is a little wonky and does make the light background pieces look more pinky/peachy.  They are actually an off-white.

Just leave a comment at the end of this post if you'd like your name thrown in the hat for the drawing for this quilted piece.  I'll make the cut-off for the drawing this coming Friday night, March 7th, around 9 p.m. when I turn off my computer for the night.  Winner will be announced Saturday morning.

I'm on a tear getting rid of all kinds of things I haven't used in years and this is one item that has to go.  (So be prepared for more coming up!)  And who knows?  If your name is drawn and you hang this bit of spring time in your house, Mother Nature just might send you some warm weather and green grass.  Wouldn't that be welcomed after this winter!

I put my name in the hat in January for the snowman and we got snow. Maybe if I put my name in the hat for a spring hanging we will get spring! Wouldn't that be a welcome sight!

I just had so many uses come to mind ,to put some decor on a a boring wheelchair ,and people would stop me and ask, "who made this beautiful piece",i would explain about my "gifted friend. Also the colors are very nice ,a good match to everything in my house-lol, hmm ,I wonder if i could patch my "blakey" I won't let it go ,no you can't make me" It is full of holes and has wear and tear of a pair of fish net undies ( not mine ) but once my son asked me to fix his boxers ,I said I could sew a fish net better! Hell,yes ,I want it ,so put my name in the box on a post card ,that way you can't miss it---jk .I'm telling you the older I get ,the goofer ",What was that momma pea?" You said "I always was that way" oh well,than , can't help that.

Wow, thanks to all of you who have so far expressed an interest in this wall hanging. Isn't it funny . . . I was afraid this particular piece wouldn't appeal to anyone!

There's still plenty of time for anyone else who wants to throw their hat in the ring . . . or name in the hat!

That is a beautiful piece, who wouldn't want it.

Spring would come sooner with this in the room, esp. as everything is frozen here, buried under the snow and ice. Thank you for doing this Mama Pea!
