HMGR Deco Quilting ~ A New Blog and Giveaway!

The Giveaway is over, thanks!

I'm absolutely delighted to share a new blog with you today!  HMGR Deco Quilting is my sister Helen's new blog.  

Helen has been my everything when it comes to quilting!  She helped me make my first quilt, she helps me anytime I need advise or make a mistake.  She always takes time for me anytime of the day and since starting my new ruler and pattern adventure, she has been most supportive and encouraging and I couldn't have done it without her!

Remember the quilt I needed to finish to send to the Magazine Co.  ...well last Monday I called Helen in a frantic to proof over my instructions for the quilt, I sent them over and she immediately looked them over.  Of course we did up some revisions and I finished them Monday night.  The quilt was sent out Tuesday morning and that's just one of many examples as to why Helen has been my everything when it comes to quilting!

Helen's been playing with my ruler lately and has come up with a very fun block called "Deco Shimmer"!

Here is a peek at it's loveliness, you can check out the whole block over at her new blog HMGR Deco Quilting! 

Helen is one of the most creative and inspiring quilters I know and I'm excited to see what goodies she's got up her sleeve!

Now for the Giveaway!

If you didn't guess all ready, I'm giving away a Quick Curve Ruler and pattern of your choice to go with! (you can view my patterns to the right)....but in order to enter the giveaway, you need to become Helen's newest follower and leave a comment telling me so and that's it!

I will announce the winner Thursday morning and International entries are welcome!

~Jenny~
