Polka Dot Bikini Quilt Along: Giveaway Day!


Ok. I know I am a day late. I am also a few pounds lighter. I was completely wiped out of commission yesterday by a stomach bug. I will spare you the gory details and just say, better late than never!

Today’s Bikini Quilt Along check in is sponsored by our friend, Brenda, at Pink Castle Fabrics. More on that in a minute…how about the quilts?
coming along?
if you still need the pattern, you can purchase it Here.
I rearranged some of my border blocks so all the patchwork squares are in the center…I think it looks really cool, what do you think? I would like a whole quilt with them arranged this way, or you could make just a few blocks to create a runner,

I would love to see what progress you are making, maybe you have your own idea for a unique
Polka Dot Bikini Quilt? Please link below to share your sewing, or leave a comment to let others know how to find you (instagram, Facebook, etc) if you don’t have a link (blog, flickr, etc).

The Giveaway? lets celebrate! One reader will win a $25 gift certificate to Pink Castle Fabrics this week. Please visit their website and tell me what you would spend it on if you win by leaving a comment on this post.
If you like my blocks shown above, Pink Castle carries many of these fabrics: Art Gallery, Alison Glass text, and Waterfront Park.

Participants in the quilt along get an extra entry, so be sure and leave  both a comment as well as adding your link below. I will choose a winner on Tuesday, March 25.

Happy Weekend!

    I have been staring wistfully at my bikini quilt as she languishes on one of my design walls while I work on a coupla other projects. So no progress to report, but no lack of excitement to get back to her. Love the squares inside choice 🙂 I would drool over peppered cottons or more solids!!
