12 of Hearts October Block and Giveaway!

Hellooooooooo there! Are you having a fun week so far? How are all your stitching and quilting projects coming along?

Here's the October "12 of Hearts" Block. Can you believe we're almost done?

Here's a sneaky peeky of what all the blocks look like so far. I decided I would let you see how I chose to finish my wallhanging. Remember, you can sash your blocks if you want to. I decided I just wanted a 2" border and some buttons on mine. The directions are listed on the pattern page. Click HERE to hop over to my SHOP and get this month's block.
The patterns are listed under Free Designs to the left.

Ok, on to our giveaway!

This month I decided the prize would be a pair of Rabbit Embroidery Scissors. They're gold just like Lady Hannah Goldenhare! hee,hee,hee. I love these little things and use them all the time. I even use them to cut tiny shapes in wool for my Folk Art Fusion pieces.

To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post. As always, those of  you who follow us on this blog and are signed up on the right as a follower, will get two chances! The winner will be chosen by the random number generator on Monday, October 17th.

Hope you are having a good time with this pattern!
xx,

In August's heat I pulled out my Hearts patterns and started stitching. I love how each one is different but all are sorta Elizabethan with curliques & swirls. Can't wait to get them all done, still pondering the finished look.
