We Have a Winner!!

4 May

Thank you to everyone that participated in our Giveaway this past week!  It sure was a lot of fun!   With the help of an old fashioned pencil and paper (to list everyone from, Facebook, Twitter and here on the blog who entered) and random.org, a winner was chosen!  More on that in a moment.  (This is my Ryan Seacrest moment…suspense, y’all, suspense!!)

I wanted to follow up on an earlier blog that Selina had done about a Quilt Along.  I was very excited when she posted this because I have charm packs that need to be used.  One I received was from Stitchin’ Heaven.  They had a fabulous Twitter party on New Years Eve, and I won!  (The winning never ends around here!!)  It was a beautiful charm pack from Kate Spain called Fandango.  As pretty as it was, it did not have any immediate plans for it.  Selina’s blog came up, and sure enough, a project was born!! It came together fairly quickly (even if I did have to make a *tiny* trip to the fabric store that ended up costing more than I intended…what can I say, I’m a sucker! AND, my daughter’s birthday is coming up! PLUS I needed binding fabric! Why am I justifying buying fabric to you?  You totally get it, I’m sure.) and I completed it within a week and a half!

  I did a stipple design in the center, and curies with random flowers in the borders.  It is also backed in a Moda polka dot that I happened to have on hand.  (this is where my stash hoarding comes in handy!!)

Here is Selina’s beautiful quilt:

Baby Bliss

Her quilting is beautiful, don’t you think?! Anyway, we had a lot of fun making these sweet little quilts, it was really great being able to complete something so quickly again!

Anyway, here it is. The moment of truth.  The moment you’ve all been waiting for…our winner is…#17: Heather, who commented here on the blog!  Congratulations, and thanks to ALL who entered! You really made this week fun!  Until next time!

My First Quilt Along

12 Apr

If you’ve never done a quilt along before, join the club! I have never participated in one because I have so  much going on that I didn’t feel I could commit to finish. Then I found a link on twitter to a super easy quilt along hosted by Melanie of Above All Fabric. All it takes is a charm pack (pre-cut 5-inch squares of fabric), 3/4 of yard for sashing, and another 1/2 yard each for borders and binding. And the best part? It only takes a week!

Bliss Fabrics

The fabric line I chose for mine is “Bliss” by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. I love this line and I already had a charm pack so I didn’t have to buy any fabric for this quilt (which, I’m not gonna lie… that helped in my decision to make it!). After we’re done making the quilt, we’re also going to be making a bag to go with it.

If you want to join in, it’s not too late.
