~I Love Home BOM ~ Borders ~ GIVEAWAY!

*** GIVEAWAY CLOSED ***
Well it's here, the last month of the I Love Home BOM.  You can find this months border and finishing instructions here.  I would like to thank Jacquelynne for allowing me to join in the fun and for all her hard work designing and sharing of the pattern.


Below is my finished quilt that didn't go by the pattern. Jacquelynne asked that the featured bloggers think outside the box and use the blocks however we wished.  I loved this freedom of design because I rarely make a quilt as written in the pattern.   So I enlarged the sashing and changed the borders.  This scalloped border is my go to border, it's quick and cute and adds a little country charm.


 I tried to keep my quilting as simple as possible so it could be used as a wall hanging or a sweet little quilt that my grand daughters can snuggle under when they visit.


The border quilting was one of my favorite parts of the quilting process, big ole hearts that fit the theme of I LOVE Home. 


So this months Giveaway is sponsored by Thermoweb. A $25 Gift card.  I love Thermoweb products and use them often.  The one I use the most is Heat N Bond Lite.  It truly does what it claims and fits right into my budget.  The Thermoweb website also offers many free projects that you can find here.


To enter the Giveaway here on my blog just leave a comment below, please add your email address to your comment so I have a way to contact you.  Any comment will do, but if you need help how about you tell me if your making any gifts for Christmas.

Don't forget to visit all the participating bloggers listed below for more chances to win a $25 Gift Card from Thermoweb.


Find more I Love Home inspirations on the Facebook Group and Pinterest Groups.

  6. I'm working on quite a few Christmas gifts, small things like zippered pouches, project bags and pillow cases. I also have to come up with something for my husband's secretary. He is going to get her a gift card, but I like to personalize things by making something to put the gift card in.

  84. What have I "made"? As in finished?? Lots of time, lots of time, right? I mean, there's eighteen more days until Christmas itself and I have an advantage since we do our gift exchange on the 6th which is when the Wise Men came bearing gifts. So I have a month left!!
    We do stockings on Christmas morning and then have the rest of the day for church and a nice Christmas dinner. I will do a few small things for the stockings again this year.

  102. I love exchanging gifts with quilting friends. My favorite giftie is a gift card holder - because they also hold packages of needles! Hand or machine! I've made selvedge trimmed Christmas trees; wool snowmen ornaments with the pocket to hold the gift card on the back; and selvedge stocking ornaments made just wide enough to hold a gift card. The sky's the limit! Happy holidays - doni @ Oregon coast
