Bowls with Borders Today!!

It's time!! Today is my post for Bowls with Borders.  Mine is called "Let's Bowl!".  The pattern is by Regina Grewe and is available here.



The dotted fabrics are ones I have collected from other ladies scraps.  The quilting is my own.  

I will have stock in my Etsy store "Dizzyneedle" by Monday.
To celebrate here is a giveaway.  Drawing will be open until midnight Wednesday, August 15.  Everyone leaving a comment will have one chance.  Everyone who is a follower will have one chance. ( possible 2 per person)  It's a wooden "Q" covered with a quilt block.


To see other bowls today see these hoppers:

Those reds are so much fun! My eye was drawn to the juxtaposition of round bowls inside a geometric border--that is so cool!

Hi Dix,
Love the black, white and red especially the key quiltdesign on the border and the way the top bowl is against the border. Thank you.

Zuzan said...

May I add, Dix, I have become a follower and have just received the Portugese whitework book which will be the first whitework I will attempt. I was interested what I saw on your site.

Nellie Duclos said...

Love your lace collection. I am jealous! I was just thinking when I noticed your location that when I finally get my sewing room, I'd like to put a map of the world up and use pins to mark and name all the bloggers I have left comments on. It's amazing that the Internet takes us all over the world. Thanks for sharing you little dotted bowls-they're precious. From California!
