This was supposed to be one of those "What I'm Working on Wednesday" posts, but I just didn't quite get it together in time! I wanted some good photos and had to wait for a little sunshine this morning for that. Right before I left for Quilt Market my final block in the Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Block of the Month arrived. It was one of the first things I finished up after getting home.
I'd already been sewing blocks into rows and working on some of the sashing parts and pieces, so it was easy to add the final row and start working on borders yesterday.
It's so amazing to me how just a little bit of navy in the center of each block is so perfectly accented by all of the navy in the borders. I'm so in love with this quilt. It's going to be a big one, too--I'm sure it will be a full-sized quilt. All I have left is to attach the flying geese borders and add the outer border. I've even got the binding all ready!
I also need to announce some winners from my market posts and from the Bear Creek Quilting Company weekend giveaway. I have three prizes for my market posts...so I'll share those here and then the first winner can pick from the three choices, the second winner can pick from the remaining prizes, and winner three will get the final prize. So...the first choice is a group of 5 pattern by my friend Sherri Falls of This & That patterns. There are four adorable stitchery designs with projects and one cute bag pattern.
The next choice is a charm pack of perfect chevrons in a rainbow of colors by Dear Stella Fabrics. These are really the perfect chevrons...I have a fat quarter bundle of these for projects...and I can't tell you how excited I am to get sewing with them. There are a lot more squares here than in a traditional charm pack...I think there are 4 of each color.
Finally is an "Inside Voices" bundle of low volume fabrics from Westwood Acres. I recently was able to get in on this monthly club and ended up with an extra set. These fat quarters are perfect for low volume backgrounds.
So...congrats to Paula @ Sewy Stuff, Marcella, and Sonya who are the winners of the market giveaways.
And congratulations to Anita in Florida who is the winner of the $50 gift certificate from Bear Creek Quilting Company! I'll be in touch, everyone!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
