A Little Handwork...and Some Winners



Handwork...I love it...it just seems to be so relaxing.  I finished binding a quilt today and then was able to make a few hexies and applique a Dresden that has been sitting unfinished for a little while.  Whenever I get a chance to do handwork I always wonder why I don't make the time to do more--I really do enjoy it!


My June issue of American Patchwork & Quilting came today--this is my favorite quilting magazine...sometimes I'll save it for a couple of days just because I know it will be a couple months before the next issue arrives.  But today I opened it right up to read the article, "The Quilting Tradition of Making Do." I really recommend this article--I love the history and tradition of our art, and this was such an interesting read.  Additionally, the article features Pam Buda who designed the "Endless Summer" pattern for yesterday's parade!  Pam's blog is a delight to read as well!



Pam sent along some of her patterns for our winners today...these look like a lot of fun! From Sinta's parade Edith will get a set of patterns...


And from my parade Amanda will also get a set.  Thank you so much Pam!


  Bear Paw Quilts & More is giving a charm pack of The Dragonly Summer (new) by Holly Taylor for Moda to Carol from my parade.


 And Quilt Taffy has a gift certificate to their on-line shop to Sandie from my parade.





Quilter's Paradise is donating a $15 gift certificate to Leah.  Congratulations to everyone...I'll be back soon with some weekend sewing and my stash report!

congratulations to all the winners, have fun with your lovely prizes! I love handwork too, mostly cos i can do it sitting in bed, with winter coming up our side of the world, I will definitely be doing much more of it!

I got my magazine yesterday too. I like the article about Making Do. I'm in the Prairie Women's Sewing Circle club. The 2nd club just started. Wow, I'm so excited to win the Dragonfly Summer charm pack. Love your necked and Dresden Plate.

Congratulations to the winners! What a fun parade :-) I got my magazine on Friday, but haven't looked inside it yet for the same reason......I thought I was the only one who waited to look at it :-)

I read my magazine from cover to cover the other day, too. I had saved it for about a week. I enjoyed that article a lot as well!

Congratulations to all the winners! I will have to look for a copy this week when I get into town.

I got my copy too and I loved the article. It reminded me so much of my grandmother. :-) Thank you for the great parade! I'm excited to go shopping! ;-) Have a happy day!
