Do you ever hope that you will win a giveaway on a blog? on one of your favorite blogs? Well guess who just won a package of scraps? I did, over at Fun with Barb. I wasn't the first winner, but Barb is sending me a package of scraps, too! Yay! I LOVE scraps, and scrap quilts - and Barb's scraps will be yummy, I am sure! Everyone's stash is so different - almost like a fingerprint. I wonder what I will make with them??? Barb's blog is terrific, always filled with inspiration and lots of fun, too. Her quilts are stunning, and her workmanship is exquisite.
And - to "pay it forward" - I will be sending out a package of my scraps to someone who responds to this post. I will mail to anywhere in the U.S. Please make sure that I have some way to contact you - like your email address. I promise to send a nice assortment for some fun playtime. Thank you!
|My design wall has been frozen like this for a while...I know we are ALL busy, but I literally do not have more than maybe an hour of free time each day, after my two jobs. This colorwash quilt will be a wedding gift for my lovely daughter, Emily, and her wonderful husband, Matt. I wanted to make them a wall quilt, and something that would complement their modern house and design scheme. I showed Emily some colorwash examples, and got the thumbs up! Then I got a nice selection of batik pieces from my friend Wanda of Exuberant Color. Wanda is an excellent quilter and teacher, and an expert at the colorwash style. Check out her blog for many fabulous examples!|
