Oh My Stars Giveaway Winners

First, I want to thank all of you entered my first giveaway! I had so much fun reading your comments.  Now for the 2 winners of the FQ bundles:

Winner #1 is Joanna!
 Winner #2 is Melinda!


But wait – there’s more! I picked 6 other winners to receive 5″ and 10″ squares of these fabrics too!

Here are 4 of the winners:

And the last two winners are the first & last to leave comments, since it seems like the random number generator rarely picks them:

WIP Wednesday 6/22

[Looking for my giveaway? It’s here.]

For WIP Wednesday, I have my windowpane quilt to show – this time it’s pieced and I’ve started playing with border ideas (as you can see on the left):

I’ve also started piecing squares for the backing – I’m still brainstorming on the pattern though.
Now the burning question: How should I quilt this? I’d love to hear any ideas you have!

Check out other people’s creations at one of these great sites!

One-Yard Wonders: Laptop Sleeve

[Looking for my giveaway? It’s here.]

If you follow Pink Chalk Studio, you know that they have a sew-along going on all year long using One-Yard Wonders by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins.

After seeing all the cute projects they were putting out every week, I decided to get myself a copy of the book.  Here’s my first creation – the laptop sleeve:
The fabric is Michael Miller’s Bright Paisley Black & I love how it coordinates with my blue laptop!

Oh My Stars!

Please note: This giveaway has ended. See the winners here.

A while back I purchased a ton of fabric from a woman who is no longer physically able to quilt (at a HUGE discount). One stack of fabric contained several yards of different colored star fabrics and fabric with fireworks, presumably for a July 4th themed quilt. With July 4th right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to give some of this fabric away!

I’m giving away two sets of fat quarters from these fabrics – that’s right, TWO winners! I will ship internationally.

This giveaway is open until Sunday, June 26, 2011 at 8:00 pm EST. At the close of the giveaway, the two winners will be chosen by Random.org and notified via e-mail.

Royal Mail

I received some Royal Mail today!

Kate over at Kate’s Arty Bits Blog was so sweet to send me some of her scraps – all the way from the UK! For free!

I’ll definitely have some fun playing with these – thank you Kate!!

Laundromat Dramat-ics

I’m at laundromat washing the baby clothes quilt I finished the other day (but have not yet delivered) because it’s too big for my very basic washer & dryer. This will be my third quilt, but the first one that I’ve actually washed before delivering. Is it weird that I feel like it’s my baby and I keep peering through the little round window to make sure it’s ok?
