Can that be? Can it really be November? We'll blink and it will be December...where in the world has this year gone? I don't think I've ever had a year go by as fast as this one has...and I know I'm not alone...I've heard lots of people say the same thing. What is happening? Can we figure out a way to slow 2011 down?
I had a fun time this week...I made Bennington......from Carrie Nelson's book Schnibbles Times Two...this was a really fun one to do...and the bonus was that it went together perfectly and pretty quickly. I used Kate Spain's fabric 12 Days of Christmas...this fabric is just so darn much fun! This will be a Christmas gift for Josh and Katie...as soon as I saw this fabric I knew they needed a Christmas quilt this year. I put the FaLaLa fabric on the back...Deck the Halls is one of Hampton's very favorite songs...he sings it all year long and when he gets to the FaLaLaLaLa part he sings that part with extra gusto! He loves it...so I knew this is what just had to go on the back.
Well now that I'm done with the quilt, instead of putting the leftovers in a box and thinking I'll do something with them at some point (that never happens...LOL) I'm giving them away...there are 30-2" strips, a bit over 1/2 a yard of the FaLaLa fabric, some whole 10" layer cake squares and some partial ones....plenty to do something fun for Christmas! Just leave me a comment by Wednesday morning, 10 EST...Mr. Quilt Holder will pull a name then and I'll get it out in the mail to the winner!

That's exactly what I said...how can it be November already? Love the quilt, very pretty....great fabric!!!
I love your Bennington quilt. That's one that I want to make someday. Please enter me in your drawing for the 12 Days of Christmas fabric. I know, I cant believe how fast this year is going by too.
I love your Bennington! What a fun giveaway!
Hi Carol! I have been thinking for a while about making that quilt too! It such a fun, happy pattern. I love it in those fabrics!
Beautiful Christmas quilt. You do great work!
Bennington is wonderful in Christmas! You know what is really scary about November already? The crowds out shopping!
Carol, I agree that this year has gone by way too quickly. I would love to be able to slow down 2011. Then maybe there would be more time for some serious quilting and such :)
I love your quilt you just finished up. It's lovely fabric.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Darling quilt! I have that book. I'll have to make that quilt.
Hey your Bennington looks familiar - LOL! I love it!
I can't believe it's already November - sigh - this year has definitely flown by.
oh this would be so fun to make a quilt with your fabrics, thanks!!!! Might even make a bunting to send to my DD at college how cute would that falala fabric hanging in her dorm room?
would love to hear Hampton singing falala must be so cute!
That's such a pretty fabric line, and your quilt is gorgeous! If you find out where this year went, will ya let me know? I'd like to get some of it back! :-)
That is wonderful fabric! Schnibbles quilts are so much fun to make! Yours is beautiful!
It's beautiful Carol. I hope that you find a way to slow down 2011. Please keep us posted.
Oh - I've got to make a tree skirt for my daughter - this would help do the trick for me!! Love the quilt!
Love your Schnibbles, and WOW love your leftovers! What great fabric.
Love your quilt, and that Christmas fabric is beautiful. I also can't believe how fast this year went, and that Christmas is only 54 days away.
Love that line of fabric and your project is terrific! LOTS of time to make something before Christmas, right?
What a great quilt! I would love to win the leftovers - I have some sewing to do to get ready for xmas!
I know..it's scary Christmas is so close AGAIN!! The quilt is lovely as are the scraps. Thanks for the giveaway!
Love your 12 days quilt, absolutely stunning! I too, can't belive how fast this year has gone. I ♥♥♥ theChristmas season though☺
That's BEAUTIFUL - they'll love it! And I love that you put the FaLaLa fabric on the back for Hampton. Great give-away too! Tablerunners would be a quick gift out of the leftovers!
Love the quilt! Very pretty :o)
Great quilt. I've been wanting to buy that book - it seems to have such great patterns in it. Thanks for the chance to win your leftovers!
I went to the local variety store today and there was a Santa for picture taking and Christmas carols playing. They even had a big sale of wrapping paper and lights! I just put out my turkey day decor. I thought for a moment I had missed November. LOL.
Time is just flying by. I can't believe it is already November. What a great giveaway. Love the fabric and the quilt.
Very cute quilt! What a great idea for the leftovers.
Gorgeous quilt! I wouldnt mind those scraps; I'm in stocking-making mode :-)
It's November? Great quilt. I love the fabric and your work is beautiful. Thanks for the give away chance.
I'd love to win these fabrics, if I'm eligible as I live in the UK?
As for this year, it's scary how fast it's gone.
I love those fabrics. Count me in!!!
I love your Bennington quilt, those fabrics are perfect for it!
I keep looking at that book, and I want it bad but that price tag goes against my cheapskate tendencies. I may have to just break down and get it though because I love all these quilts I see made from the patterns.
Great quilt! I love that fabric line. Thanks for the giveaway!
OK, I can figure out how to "Schnibbles" something out of that fabric. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
I love your quilt and think I will pull the book and look up how much fabric I need. The holidays with be here before we know it. Enjoy each day.
That is such great fabric...thanks for sharing.
Love those great Christmas prints - you got that project done FAST!
I think your fabric would be great for a table topper. Just enough fabric for a quick project. How many days till Christmas??!
Really cute quilt. Please enter me in the drawing for you left overs. This year has certainly gone fast for me too.
Great quilt. Even greater giveaway.
I love the idea of giving away your scraps. I find that I rarely do anything with the bits that I've saved -- as much as I fully intend to.
I'd LOVE your scraps because they are in 'non-traditional' holiday colors. What a great chance to try a fabric line without purchasing the whole line.
I might start this with my quilting group ... a scrap exchange, or give away, or such.
I would love to do something with your scraps. What a darling quilt you made with this line.
Pretty quilt..would love to win those fabrics. Paula
I knew I was sunk when I heard the salvation army ringing their bells!!!I could not believe it. We are having such a terrific fall that it makes Christmas seem like a long way off. Love your schnibbles quilt and the fabric, too. I could surely get something done by Christmas, couldn't I? Thanks for the chance to win.
i agree, time is going by WAY too fast! this year has sped by. i guess time flies when you are quilting!
i LOVE LOVE LOVE your christmas quilt! i generally make 2 christmas quilts a year (for some crazy reason) and this one looks perfect....fun and simple!
The year is just flying by, I swear it was just August last week. I can't believe it is already November. What a great giveaway. Love the fabric and the quilt. Thanks!
Great quilt! I have the same book, spend alot of time looking at it but have not made a quilt out of it yet. :( Please enter me in your drawing, love the fabrics! Also, thanks so much for stopping by my blog as I posted my newly finished old quilt! Love Carol Hopkins patterns.
That is such a fun quilt! You made the big one right? I LOVE that fabric line and I have a layer cake I might be copy catting you :) I can just here Hampton singing his falalalala's lolol!!
I have Bennington on my "I want to make list".....love yours! Now it's almost the middle of November..where has the year gone?
I love this version...so perfect paired with Kate Spain. Great finish!
