I'm putting my STAMP on it...and giving away some stuff

Today is the day. 




The first day of the Put Your Stamp On It blog hop brought to us by Madame Samm at Sew We Quilt with our head cheerleader Thearica of Pig Tales and Quilts. Thanks for including me, ladies.

I knew the stamp I wanted to make right away - it had a paper airplane on it and it's an 88 cent stamp. 88 is my favorite number, so I wanted to show that in the stamp.

I had some charm squares that looked like lined notebook paper from Bungle Jungle and I used a square of Michael Miller Couture Cotton in Apricot for the main fabric (I can't tell you how much I love these solids. The colors are so buttery smooth...) I added the numbers with some hexies made from Zen Chic Comma mini charms and I free motion quilted the "air" swirling around the airplane. There are some motion lines that I hand embroidered, also. And here is the Airmail Stamp:





In appreciation of you stopping by my blog, I'm giving away four fat quarters (4 FQs) of Architextures by Carolyn Friedlander - patterns are my choosing.

Aren't these yummy? You know you want to win :)


I will be choosing the winner by random number generator on July 3rd (voting ends at 12PM EDT July 3rd) and the winner will be notified by email. You have three entries if you choose to increase your chances. If you are a no-reply commenter, please leave me your email address so that I can get a hold of you should you win. Good luck!

  82. Hi- I was/am an older mom as most of my high school classmates got married after graduation and had families, but I went on to college, as did a few others and left them behind. My girls are now grown and I don't regret it a bit. I also worked teaching while raising my daughters, but again, I don't regret that and my daughters are both successful as they stayed with their grandmothers who helped raise them. As a teacher I noticed I that older Moms had wisdom and experience to use and pass on. I love your stamp and your FMQ is stunning-keep up the good work. From California, thanks for sharing.
