Welcome to GIVEAWAY Day At "In The Boon Docks" This giveaway is now closed! Winner to be announced by 5/12/2013 Hello, Welcome to "In The Boon Docks"! I hope you are enjoying Giveaway Day organized Kristin Link at Sew Mama Sew . I started my blog last year and was amazed at all of the items given away the first time I participated in Giveaway Day so try to go to as many blogs as possible in all the different categories you will not regret it!

Backyard Baby, Kona Solids, and Show and Tell

I just love the Backyard Baby fabric line by designer Patty Sloniger. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it for David Platt's Quilt, born January 31, 2012 to our family. But when it arrived I did not want to cut it because I was AFRAID. Have you ever had that happen? I needed a pattern or something to make sure I didn't mess up. I looked at it for days planning. What to do and how to do it. I had a visual of what I wanted, but not how I would lay it out. So this is what I did. Do you like it? I have to take it to my friend, Irene, to quilt it for me. Why? Because I don't know how YET. I love it! Hope you do to. During the creative process, I found Kona Solid fabrics by Robert Kaufman, the fabrics are vibrant, have that designer feel and looks beautiful with any print. It is sold all over the internet and at Jo-Ann's. I am so happy, because surprise I am a coupon cutter, so Jo-ann's is one of my favorite places to shop with a 40% off coupon. Yipee!
