Finish your quilt top by Saturday, May 25th, 2013, post it to our flickr site and be entered to win one of TWO $25 gift certificates to Fabrics N Quilts!
Once your tops are done – you probably want to have it quilted!  Finish by Saturday, May 25th, post to the flickr site and be entered to win one of 2, $50 Gift Certificates for Quilting from Marcia’s Crafty Sewing & Quilting!
