DWM and Giveaway

What a weekend!!  Daughter number 2 graduated with a Master's degree this weekend,  Little Baby Smiles is just so super proud of his Mama :)

FNSI was Friday which also coincided with Cyperquilters Twister weekend. So guess what I did, yep I twisted the night away :)  Daughter #4 needed a baby girl quilt for a shower coming up, here's what she's getting.  I did free had half swirly feathers in each leg of the pinwheel.  I love free hand quilting. So fun.

Baby Girl Twister

Cozy Fleece on the back 
I also got a little work done on Center of My Universe. 8 blocks done, only a gazillion more to go.

And there's a giveaway party going on over at SewMamaSew and here's what I'm giving away, somehow I ended up with two, so one's for you :)  Simply Amazing Spiral Quilts. There's a CD with the templates as well.  It's a great book.  Just leave a comment if you'd like a chance to win.  The winner will be randomly drawn on 5/25 7 PM CST.
