I won! Yes I did

A couple of weeks ago QuiltSue over at Quilt Times had a scrambled letter word contest. It was quite a test for my old brain! But I won. Saturday I got home from shopping and there was this wonderful squishy package waiting on the kitchen table for me. Look what was inside. The most lovely Meadow Friends fabric. Along with it are cute little "Made for a Princess" labels for me to use.

Here are some of the fabrics that are just begging to be used. I was thinking of a sweet meadow quilt for a little princess. Thank you Sue. I love my gift!

A LONG time ago I got this book, mostly for the quilt on the cover. So I've been cutting fabrics into 5 inch squares so I would be ready to make it someday.

However, this one caught my eye.

So I've been sewing red, yellow, blue, orange and green squares together.....slowly working on it. So far I don't see any dent in my stash.

Happy Quilting! Lynda

A couple of weekends ago we went to visit our daughter and family. Of course, we had to go feed the ducks since this is one of Ellie's favorite things. Although she did eat a few pieces of the stale bread herself between throwing chunks to the ducks.

We started working on a Quiet Book for Church for Ellie.

2 of my friends, Janine and Connie, and I made Halloween quilts. We shared fabrics so we would get lots of fun blocks. This one is mine. I use flannel on the back.

Linda, the quilter at Just Sew in Highland, did a fantastic job quilting spider webs.

This one is Janine's quilt. She uses Minke on the back. It really shows off the quilting and is so bright.

Once again, I've been cleaning out my sewing room. I wonder who (or what) comes in and messes it up all the time? Of course, as I'm cleaning I find projects that need to be completed or new projects to start or I just sit and reread quilt wonder I never finish the clean up job!

Happy Quilting! Lynda
