I'm a Winner!

I was thrilled to discover I'd won a giveaway on Tea Mahone's blog a couple of days ago. Yesterday she posted a picture of what I'd won
and my package just arrived!  Thank you Tea!!!!  50 Moda Marbles charm squares in a collector tin and 26 Moda Shimmer charm squares.  Both of these collections will make an awesome addition to my applique stash and I've been doing a lot of that in recent months as you all know!  How lucky am I?

I realized last night I forgot to take a picture of the baby quilt that Tom pieced last week and I quilted over the weekend.  We gave it to one of the guys that works for my oxygen provider.  He's been so helpful to me over the years and he and his wife are expecting a baby boy on the 28th of this month.  Maybe we'll get to see the baby and take a picture of him with his quilt sometime.    Tom did a great job piecing it and we used fleece on the back for a really cuddly quilt.

Yesterday I finished the Irvine Bell Brand block from Lyn Brown's BOM. That is Saddleback Mountain in the background and Irvine Lake tucked into the hills. 

I'm still behind a week and need to make the background to start work on the Orange Co. Courthouse block.  Wow..40 windows!  How long are those going to take me?

I also finished another Dutch Treat block.


This one is called Coat of Arms.

Off to help Tom with another little quilt. Collaborations are fun!

it is always nice to win isn't it!! I was just looking through and pressing a group of fabrics that I won last year. I have been looking at them for a good six months wondering what I will make with them and will decide this week I think. Have fun playing with your new fabric.
