Quilt it for me, Chelsea!

 Chelsea is having a great giveaway on her blog, and fortunately I was reminded of it by a couple of fellow-bloggers otherwise I may have forgotten.  Chelsea is giving away her long arm quilting services to TWO lucky winners.  You can click the button above for more details.

Well, I have a quilt top that I would LOVE for someone else to tackle!

Meet my strip tube pieced quilt, made using a Sweetwater Pure jelly roll.  This was my first time using this technique, and my first time using a jelly roll.  The quilt top came together super fast!  Only problem, I am not in love with this fabric, more specifically the colours, and I'm finding it reaaaally hard to motivate myself to carry on with this project.  Don't get me wrong, I think it will make a beautiful finished quilt and I have someone in mind that I want to give it to who will love it, but if Chelsea would quilt this for me, all the better!!

And I'm lucky in that I live not too far from Chelsea, so I'm hoping if I win that we can do an in-person delivery!   :)  I don't know how I would like it quilted, but I know that Chelsea is experienced and has done some beautiful work so I would trust her to do something amazing with this!

You still have time to enter, just keep in mind that if you win you will be responsible for shipping both ways.

Oh cool Heather, I'm so glad you're entering! And yeah, I think we could definitely organize a pick up if you win. I'm already coming up with quilting ideas for your top - why isn't it this easy to come up with ideas for my own stuff?
