Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about how much quilting enriches my life. I just have to start out by saying how grateful I am for my Mom and for my Grandmothers who sewed and quilted and who always encouraged me to sew as well. Quilting enriches my life in so many ways…and I need to say thank you as well to all of my quilty, creative friends and the quilt, stitching and craft bloggers out there who inspire me every day!
Just last Friday I found out that I won a giveaway from the Missouri Star Quilt Company. Their blog is a must-see; they have a terrific web-store that has great specials, a great blog, and even tutorials! Iwas so surprised to receive my gifts in Monday’s mail…the April 2009 edition of American Patchwork and Quilting along with a Jelly Roll and a Layer Cake of April Cornell’s Nature’s Chorus by Moda! Of course you know I love all things Moda…and this fabric is no exception…it’s gorgeous…and I have a quilt already in mind for it!
This weekend was another basketball tournament weekend for our family…but luckily I had a lot of handwork prepped and ready to take with me. I finished Block three of “A Christmas Wish” from Gail Pan’s great block of the month which posted just an hour before I left town!
And…here’s a giveaway you might want to check out if you love selvedges like I do…have you seen the giveaway at ModaLissa’s? Two lucky winners will receive a gift bag with Moda selvedges. I’m entering for sure…but you don’t have to if you don’t want to…really!
