Week 5: Celebrate Bouquet Memories Wall Hanging and a Giveaway!

Greetings dear readers and welcome to Week 5 in a "Month of Monday Giveaways"!

I'm really excited about this week's celebration and giveaway sponsored by Bear Creek Quilting Company.   The celebration includes a free wall hanging tutorial AND a fantastic fabric kit & thread bundle giveaway all courtesy of...
Before we get into the celebration details, let me share a bit about Bear Creek Quilting Company.

A fantastic online quilt shop, Bear Creek Quilting Company is located in Vancouver, Washington.

You will be amazed at the variety of fabric (yardage and pre-cuts), notions, gifts, books, patterns, kits, and embroidery supplies that are available in the online shop.   Jump over and check it out...

Bear Creek Quilting Company has 25% off all books and is currently throwing a great Clearance Blow-Out Sale!
If you combine the clearance blowout sale with the fantastic shipping policy at Bear Creek Quilting Company you can really save some $$.
On top of the fantastic prices, Bear Creek Quilting Company has fantastic customer service.

Speedy shipping, pretty packaging, and service with a smile make working with the team at Bear Creek Quilting Company a JOY!!

See for yourself, check out the Testimonials web page -- reading through them makes me smile!

OK -- enough about the shop -- lets talk celebration!!

Introducing "Bouquet Memories" wall hanging.  This pretty little wall hanging measures 17" x 23", features 3D flowers, straight line quilting, and a sweet little blue bird to boot!

I had the honor of working with Shari and scouring the wonderful fabrics in the online shop before designing this charming wall hanging for ya'll to enjoy!

You can see the tutorial on the Bear Creek Quilting Company blog by clicking here.
"Bouquet Memories" was appropriately named as it uses the Wild Rose colorway of the beautiful "Bouquet Memories" fabric line by Hoffman of California -- swoon!

I fell in love with the diverse grouping of prints in this line and really enjoyed creating with them.

There are however, two additional colorways available in this line -- and Bear Creek Quilting Company has them packaged up and ready to ship from their online store.  Click here to see the fabric bundles in the online shop.
I was able to crash my thread stash and use a variety of Aurifil Mako Cotton 50Wt threads for the Bouquet Memories wall hanging.

As always, the Aurifil worked beautifully for machine piecing, hand sewing, and straight line quilting the sample.  Lovin' those #Aurifil threads!

Oh, and also on this project, I was able to try the Aurifil Lana Wool 12Wt thread -- it stitched like a dream!
Again - you can find the "Bouquet Memories" wall hanging tutorial on the Bear Creek Quilt Company Blog by clicking here.

There is one little portion of the wall hanging that will be presented on my blog later today -- the Little Blue Bird.

Stay tuned for the Little Blue Bird template and some wool applique stitching basics that will help you duplicate the sweet Little Blue Bird on your wall hanging.
Woohoo!  Now on to the really fantastic giveaway sponsored by Shari at the Bear Creek Quilt Company!!

How would YOU like to win a "Bouquet Memories" wall hanging kit ?

The kit comes complete with the beautiful Hoffman of California Bouquet Memories fabrics AND 3 large spools of Aurifil Mako Cotton 50wt threads in colors that are perfect for the piecing, hand sewing and quilting of the wall hanging.  (Sorry -- my little Redbird and Elan scissors are NOT included ;)
