Work has consumed me these past few weeks, but it's starting to ease up now! It's a good thing, too, because I'm spending way too much money on wine lately!
I have a few finishes. I worked on the first round of the BMQG Round Robin Swap, which was fun! It's a blind swap, so I can't post full pictures, but here's a sneak at my 2-inch border for round one:
I also finished up my block for the first month of the Modern 99 Swap. This one was "Mondrian" on p.116 for Julie.
Lastly, I whipped up a baby quilt for our friends. They're expecting a boy in a few weeks, and the daddy is a fisherman, so I thought that Storyboek by Jay-Cyn Designs would be perfect for him! I used Elizabeth Hartman's Little Plates pattern from The Practical Guide to Patchwork. Love how this one came out.
On a WAY more exciting note...remember the orange, tangerine, and gray color combo that I put together for the Quokka Quilts' Blogger's Choice Fat Quarter Bundle Contest? It was this one:
Well, the competition was AH-MAZ-ING. Seriously - 242 entries from quilters all over the world. And guess what?
That's right - EEP!! I won! I was one of the three people selected by Cara of CaraQuilts, Amy of Amy's Creative Side and Kimberly of the Fat Quarter Shop to win a half-yard of each of the fabrics! Can you believe it?? I never dreamed that I would win, and I'm so amazingly excited. My sincere thanks to all of the judges, to Laura for hosting, and to Kimberly for sponsoring the contest.
Now to figure out what I want to make with all of this delicious fabric when it arrives!
