Giveaway Winner!

WOW!  I can't believe how many customers scooped up Bigfork Bay Cotton Company patterns and kits today!  I'm not planning to re-stock most of these items, so these great prices are limited to the quantity on hand.  You snooze, you loose!

So.... on to the giveaway.  For the month of June, we took entries for the drawing to win 1/4 pound of dried lavender buds (from my farm, of course!)

Isn't this a pretty picture?  My friend, Stephanie, took this photo of my sachets in her yarn basket.  Her yarn is great-smelling and bug-free!  (Not that she had bugs before.... but lavender does naturally keep the creepy crawlies away).

The winner for the June giveaway is..... drum roll, please...... Nanbon (blogger name) from Milton, Florida.  CONGRATS!  I'll send you an email so I can get your address and get your fragrant package on it's long journey from Oregon to Florida!

Our harvest is beginning tomorrow.  We'll be cutting in the early morning hours so the lavender will be nice and fresh for it's trip to our first farmers' market of the season.  I'll have pictures soon.  We'll also be starting to ship fresh bundles next week.  I'll post about that soon.

I'll leave you with a few photos of our field that my friend, Kathy D took last summer.  I'll take some current pictures and post them soon. 

Bigfork Bay Cotton Company on SALE!

A new month- a new sale!  All Bigfork Bay Cotton Company patterns and kits are on sale this month.

Bigfork Bay patterns are incredibly detailed.  The finished quilts are breathtaking! We have horses, North American wildlife, African and Asian wildlife.... and frogs!

Kits include the same fabrics as shown on the pattern covers.  All fabrics are high quality batiks.

To create these beauties, you trace the full size patterns onto a fusible product such as Steam-a-Seam.  Then fuse the shapes onto the back of the fabric, cut on the lines, peel off the backing paper, and you are left with iron-on shapes.  Arrange the shapes under a silicone pressing mat and fuse.  Finish with free motion quilting.

The frogs are great starter projects (not as many pieces as some of the other projects).  These little guys always make me smile.

You can click to the Bigfork Bay products, as well as other sale items from our home page.

To go along with the sale this month, we're going to give away a Frog pattern on the blog.  Look for it on July 2nd, after I post the winner of the June giveaway.
