I appreciate everyone that's entered my giveaways in the past and for wanting to enter this giveaway too. I really enjoy doing these kinds of things for all of you and I spend a lot of my time doing it. I personally make each of the projects that I give away and really wish that I could make something for everyone but that's why I do these kinds of tutorials, so I can share my talents with each of YOU, my dear blogging friends!!!

Good Luck Everyone!!!

Update 10/11 @ 9:11am-Remember to use the printer friendly button at the bottom of the MBS post. When you click on the button it will download a pdf file to your computer for you to print the the tutorial. I know, it's 15 pages, sorry! I know it's a long one because of all the pictures but it would use even more paper if you tried to print it any other way. Thanks!

Update 10/11 @11:53am: I was checking the ruler links on MBS to make sure they were working for you and I have some good news for those interested in buying the ruler! The 18 degree Fan Ruler is on SALE right now for 30% off at Connecting Threads. Yeah!!!

Another Update 10/11 @12:00 Noon: The Triangle Square Up Ruler by Quilt in a Day is on SALE right now, too!! What a great time to pick up two really great rulers.


The Giveaway is CLOSED
as of 10/18
Thanks for Visiting!

Kim, this is beautiful and thank you so much for the tutorial that you made, I know it's a lot of work to make these up. I use to have a table mat like this thirty some years ago that was made out of polyester fabric, I know gross, but my best friend had made it for me and I loved it back than. Thanks for the giveaway.

Susan In Texas said...

Hi Kim,

What a great charger; would I ever like to win that! I'm going for all the points I can, so here's my comment. BTW I made my first Dresden Plate block for a sampler quilt my bee made for a silent auction. It was in all pastels and ended up being the focal point of the quilt. There's just *something* about that pattern!

Thanks for doing this giveaway,
Susan

Kate said...

I saw this on the Moda Bakeshop site and have already added it to my Christmas gift list for all my kids. (4 so I better get busy). They all are married with nice sets of dishes. I'm debating doing all plates but may end up with some table runners or accent pieces depending on how time consuming these are. I've had the desden template for years waiting for just the RIGHT project to come along!! LOL Thanks for the GREAT work! I love it; I can't tell you how excited I am to get started. :)
