Quilt Rack For Sale & A Give Away

Time just seems to be getting away from me lately.  The weekend went by in a flash and now it's Sunday night and back to work tomorrow.  I have managed to get some more stitching done on my soon to be released Block Of The Month.  

Just a few more blocks and it can be put together and sent off to the quilters.  

Look what my gorgeous friend Dawn made for me and sent in the mail last week.  It is a 12 days of Christmas Quilt.

Each block is made from the amount of pieces for each day - This is Day 12 with 12 pieces and is my favourite block.

Isn't it special?  And made from delicious Aviary as well.  

I have also spent a little time cleaning out some of my tubs of fabric.  I have a few bits to go on the Destashing Facebook Page tomorrow but I also have this lot of assorted novelty off cuts.  There are farmyard animals, roosters, cats, dragonflies, Cat and the Fiddle and much more.  I am giving these away so if you are interested just leave a comment saying that you would like them and I will draw a winner on Friday.

Also as part of my clean up and de-cluttering I have this Quilt Rack for sale.  I have 2 of them so am willing to part with this gorgeous one for $50.

It is perfect for displaying quilts and is made of dark coloured filligree iron.  It's not suitable to post so only suitable for fellow Tasmanians.

So that's it from me this weekend.  Mum is doing really well now and is out of ICU and able to breathe without oxygen now so we are very pleased with her progress after the scary week we have had.  The brain surgery is healing well so everything is looking great.  Thanks so much for the thoughts and prayers - They worked.

Hugs - Fee XX

What a shame about the quilt stand - I would dearly love one but I'm kind of guessing it would cost a small fortune to get one here. Love your stitching and what the adorable Dawn did for you too and am so pleased that things are looking much brighter for you and your Mum.
lots of hugs xx

I have just finished making 2 Ispy quilts.

I would love these fabrics to make another and give it to a charity to raffel off for funds.

Love your quilt stand but i am in melbourne so it would cost too much to send....((((

I too love the shabby chic fabric, you have a great friend for making this for you.

Quilt racks are so hard to come by - what a shame I live in QLd - maybe I could move??. I'd love to win the I spy / novelty fabrics - I am making one now and it would boost the variety that is for sure! Good news for your mum - you must be feeling a little relieved.

Barb said...

Oh...that quilt frame is so lovely....but I agree with the first comment, would cost way to much to have it shipped to me. Your stitching is sooooo clean and smooth looking, what is your secret?

CathyC said...

WOW - your stitching is beautiful ;-) and what a lovely quilt from Dawn! Glad to hear your mum is on the mend. I love the fabrics you are giving away, thanks for the opportunity to win ;-)

So glad your Mum is doing well and things have settled after the scare.
Your bom is looking fabulous.
Dawn's quilt is lovely, and such a cute idea for the blocks.
Would love to be in for the 'novelties', perfect for what I am making for my nephew for his birthday :)
What a lucky Taswegian-whoever they be- to get that stunning quilt rack!

chrissie said...

Pleased to hear that your mum is doing well... It's such a worry.
I love your quilt stand and have the perfect place for it, however as I live in the UK it will never make it over here without VAST expense! I would love your material as it would help enormously with the two children's quilts that I want to make for Christmas.
Thanks for the chance of entering.

Maria said...

What a lovely idea the Twelve days of Christmas quilt is!I would love the chance to win those lovely novelty fabrics. They would make lovely squares in my 'raggy quilts'.

Vicki said...

Hi Fee, what a shame I don't live in Tassie, your rack is gorgeous. I suppose my house is too cluttered anyway so maybe it is just as well I can't have it. I can't wait to see your BOM, it looks lovely. I would love to win your fabric, novelty prints are just up my ally. Vicki vickilorraine at hotmail dot com

Bev C said...

Hello Fee,

Fantastic news regarding your Mum.
Please put my name in the hat for the fabric, would give this to my Mum as she does a lot of children's quilts for the local Red Cross shop.

Happy days.

barbara woods said...

would love to win thank you

Nellie put the kettle on said...

Hi Fee, love the look of your Bom, can't wait when it's finished and available, xxx
I would love the quilt stand if still available. I live in Burnie however and not sure how I'd be able to get it (that's if it's still available)xxx

Cindy Jo said...

I would love to have the novelty cuts! Thank you for offering them. (Even if I don't win them!) LOL!

Beeshebags said...

Phew am glad I'm not in Tassie or I'd be owning a quilt stand lol

I'd love to win the novelty cuts, always on the lookout for fabric I can use in Aussie Hero Quilts!

Glad you're Mums doing better.
