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:
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!
