I've been a very lucky girl having won two giveaways recently! The first was from Laura at Needles, Pins and Baking Tins with this very modern assortment of prints from Spoonflower. She sent these to me all the way from England (one of my very favorites places, well, besides Scotland that is. Oh, and Disney World. o:) ) The photo of these fabrics on Laura's blog is so much better than this, but here they are...
Siblings Together charity. The aim of the charity is to promote contact between siblings who have been separated due to foster care or adoption. Lily's Quilts blog has a good post on the charity. As I like to make at least a couple of quilts each year for a charity, I was more than happy to oblige. I decided to make (another) of Julie Herman's Dot Party quilts (this is Dot Party quilt #4 and counting!) I thought it would show off these large prints nicely.
Annies Ruby Slipperz. And, I was a bad, bad giveaway-enterer. I read her blog every time there's a new post but I totally missed reading the part about me winning and she had to track me down. Which was so very, very nice of her. And I am thrilled with my Little Apples. I decided I'm going to use my friend's Sizzix to cut tumblers. Her die makes a 4" finished tumbler so I think it's big enough to really show off these fun prints!
Love Laugh Quilt) post on her wish to donate a few star quilts to a local Veterans' Hospital and asked if anyone would like to contribute a block. I have quite the stash of "patriotic" fabrics - I probably should have contributed a few more.
