I am proud to say that before yesterday ended my sign in said "mountainhomequilts you have 1 item to leave feedback for." I wish my "print screen" button worked or that I had some clue as to how to put a picture of it here on my blog, but I don't. Guess I'm not that computer literate! Anyway, one sale on my first day back was FABULOUS- it made my day! It made me feel as though I'd never left. So thank you nice customer- I really appreciated it. You made me smile. ♥

As promised, I'm going to do a little giveaway here to celebrate the re-opening.
I have a ton of fabric- I mean bunches. And who doesn't love fabric? Especially when it's free!? I'm going to give away another HUGE box of scraps to one lucky winner. The scraps range anywhere from little cuts to pieces nearly considered fat eighths. Most of the scraps are from Moda with a little Andover, Free Spirit, Red Rooster and other fabric manufactures' thrown in.
***I apologize but the contest is only open to US residents; unless the entrant would be willing to cover shipping cost (you'd be surprised how much a box of fabric costs to ship overseas!)***

***When I share recipes I won't type out "organic" before each ingredient but know that it's implied!***
1 clove shallots
1-2 cloves garlic
1 c balsamic vinegar
2 c oil (your choice, but I use olive)
1 c raw honey
salt and pepper to taste
Put vinegar, shallots and garlic into a blender and blend until you can't see any chunks. With blender on, drizzle oil in slowly. Then pour in honey and salt and pepper, continue blending until everything is mixed well. Let the dressing sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Store in fridge when not in use.
I store mine in a mason jar with a plastic lid. I like to take my dressing out of the fridge about 20 minutes before we eat so that it can come to room temperature. Shake well before use.

Look and Learn charm pack (this one was super hard to let go of!)
Portobello Market charm pack. I actually have 2 of these.
Cotton Blossoms charm pack
These charm packs make quick and easy patchwork quilts. If you can sew a straight seam, you can make a patchwork quilt. Just sew the pre-cut blocks together, add a border, or leave the border off and your quilt top is complete! It doesn't get any easier than that. Great for the beginning quilter as you don't need to have all the cutting supplies to make a quilt top!

This quilt is made up of Moda fabric (big surprise.) I used the Civil War Crossing collection because I am mad about reproduction fabric. I tend to keep reproduction fabric to myself though, hording it for my own personal quilts. But this one, I decided to share; how nice of me! :)
I'm still a little stumped on the border I'm going to add. I was thinking about 2.5" x 5" strips sewn together lengthwise and then added onto the quilt for a border. Most of you probably can't picture that if you're not a quilter, and even if you are a quilter I probably just explained it so poorly that you're having problems as well. I'll let you know what I decide later!
