A Colorful Life Giveaway!

Hello!  Welcome again to my week of special posts and giveaways in celebration of one year as a blogger! You all are the best and have kept me smiling all week long! Today you are in for another treat. I hope that your heart can handle the palpitations from looking at more pretty quilts, but don't say I didn't warn you if you suddenly faint or something! I'm cuckoo for cocoa puffs over Cindy's blog,  Live A Colorful Life, and want to share her talent with you.
Cindy professes to have a fascination with color, fabric and selvages. The quilt above is one she's making in collaboration with her daughter-in-law who appears to have lots of talent herself...it knocks my socks off! Cindy shares her creativity as well as her heart with her readers. I love that!
Cindy and I feel like we may have been twins separated at birth somehow, as we have similar tastes in fabric and quilts, were born the same year, have been married the same number of years and both even have red hair!  The wonderful quilt above is one Cindy is designing based on an antique.  It just so happens that I am also working on a similar pattern. What are the chances?! Must be those quilting genes!
I get really excited at seeing the lovely handwork and detail that she adds to her quilts. I feel like a spool quilt may be in my future after following Cindy create this beauty!
Not only does Cindy use selvages in her quilts but she also makes and sells darling pin cushions made from saved selvage....you may have seen her tutorial in the International Quilt Festival Quilt Scene magazine on how to make them. Cindy tells me she is very particular when it comes to organizing her selvages. That's another way that we are alike...here's how I organize mine!......................................  LOL!
I know that you will want to visit Live a Colorful Life, so click on over there now and see what  projects she's working on and enter the giveaway she is sponsoring to win this adorable Four Seasons themed selvage pin cushion. Isn't it so cute! Go on. Off with ya! Bye now.
Oh, and there's still time to enter the jelly roll giveaway contest from yesterday, if you haven't yet. Visit Pinkadot Quilts for the rundown.
