In the past, I have been known to take my birthday off from work. My birthday is on Saturday this year; but, I am still technically taking the day off because it's finals week and I could have been working from noon till 10 at night, which is about as much fun as it sounds. In any case, if I had a free day for my birthday this year, I would have spent the day quilting. I just counted, I have 14 quilts in the "mostly done" or "pretty much done" stage. It's pretty ridiculous.
Speaking of quilts, yeah, my segues are horrible this year, I know... today's big give/gift is a novamade quilt pattern. The astute among you are probably thinking "but Nova, you don't have any quilt patterns..." Well, yes and no. I have been sitting on a quilt pattern for a few months now. I am cleaning it up and will be releasing the pattern, let's say next week (if I say it, then it will be so?). In any case, if you play the novakkah game today, you can win the pattern before you can buy it (hey, I sound like a radio station ad, no?).
It's my Interlocked pattern (yes! I finally got around to it!). It's been test quilted, I have made a few versions, and it's a great pattern (she says humbly). It's beginner friendly, and fun (and pretty easy, too). In any case... a pattern, and since a pattern with no fabric is no fun, I will throw in the accent squares for the quilt. I will talk to the winner to get an idea of what size quilt you want to make (the pattern is written for three sizes) and the kind of fabric you'd like. I am pretty sure I have most preferences covered.
I will take comments for this post, and all Novakkah posts, until 11:59 EST (or2359, should you prefer that), Saturday, May 12th. Please leave your responses on the appropriate post. One entry per post/person. I will show you what I have to gift each day and let you know what you need to tell me to try to get it. Giftees will be selected on the 13th and gifts sent out shortly thereafter.
