I am so freakin' excited about this giveaway! This is different from any giveaway we've done, and I know there are tons of quilters out there who are going to being dying to win this one.
Felicia Graves, owner of The Quilting Bee, is a machine quilter. She has been in business for six years, and most of her work is freehand. Before learning to machine quilt, so worked as an artist (painting needlepoint canvas for Rebecca Wood Designs) so her favorite thing to do is "draw" on quilts using her Gammill longarm quilting machine (I know!). So all you quilters out there, admit it--you have at least one quilt top just waiting to be quilted. Don't we all? This is where Felica comes in. People send her their quilt tops and backing, and she puts them together with a one-of-a-kind quilting design. Look how gorgeous these quilts look with Felicia's finishing touch.
In my opinion the quilting is really what makes a quilt. Felicia's work is so amazing--she is truly an arteest. And guess what? She's friends with our girl V from the other day. There's some crazy creative vibe coming out of that little town in the middle-of-nowhere-Utah. I just may have to make a stop there next time I'm there visiting family in Utah so I can soak up some of their amazing-ness!
So here's the coolest part. Felicia will be quilting a quilt for free (up to 56"x56") for our lucky winner! Here's what you have to do to enter. Go to The Quilting Bee blog and tell us your favorite of Felicia's top 10 quilting memories (hint: they're all in her April archives). Make sure to leave us a comment by Wednesday, June 3 at 11:59pm PDT! Oh, and while you're there, scroll to the bottom and watch her slide show of more amazing quilts she's quilted. It's mesmerizing.
Good luck to you and your quilt tops!
