Left or Right...

Are you left brained or right brained or a mix of both?

Are you this? {Left}

Or are you this? {right}

I would say that I am more left brained than right brain, but am close to being a mix of both; like 80/20. Do you know which one you are?

This weeks giveaway comes from Quiltcreator.com. When Quiltcreator contacted me and offered a giveaway to you, the readers, I gladly accepted! I feel everyone should have a least one quilt in their home. I remember from my childhood, my great grandmother sitting in the living room with her quilt in a frame, which took up the whole room, and sewing it by hand for hours.
Quiltcreator has been designing and manufacturing quilts for of 15 years; handcrafting them for beauty, quality, and durability. On Quiltcreator.com you are able to customize your quilt by selecting the size and layout you want, along with the theme of the fabrics you would like. They also have infant quilts and bedspreads available, and a Facebook fan page.
Quiltcreator offered to send me a quilt to review and I graciously accepted. I selected The Weekender layout in shades of blue, because I am a sucker for stripes. When I received the quilt it was packaged and presented as a gift; how lovely! I couldn't wait to open it. The quilt is the full/queen size and the weight and construction is wonderful. I love how bold the stitches stand out within the quilt.
