My "12 Days of Christmas" purchase came from Craftsy. A bargain on the entire "Simply Color" collection from V and Co. Not assigned to a project yet, but keep reading for a possible use of this lovely set of fat quarters!
I really need to keep the receipts when I order stuff online. I can't remember where I bought this fat quarter collection. I do know I want to use it for a quilt for the next sailor on the USS George Washington to get promoted or earn the Navy Warfare Badge. It's called "Seven Wonders" and it's the newest from Parson Grey for Free Spirit fabrics. The companion print is called "Clouds," and it just makes me think of My Little Sailor's photo of the Indian Ocean.
Front Range Modern Quilt Guild is participating in a challenge next month using the Madrona Road collection. I ordered my FQ bundle from my favorite etsy shop, freshsqueezedfabrics:
We're making pillows with some of these fabrics. I can't wait to find out for whom I'm making a pillow, because I already have an idea for my design!
Did she say giveaway?
Yes. Yes she did. And what, pray tell, would the giveaway be? How about a membership to Amy Gibson's 2013 block of the month program, the Sugar Block Club? You may know that Amy was the designer for Crafsty's 2012 Block of the Month program. Probably the most successful BOM program in the history of quilting, it had thousands of participants worldwide!
Here's you chance to continue playing along with Amy. All you have to do is:
- Be a follower of this blog
- Comment on this post, telling me the name of your favorite quilt block
- Be sure your comment is linked to an email address or include it in your comment
- Giveaway ends next Sunday, December 16 at noon MST
- Worldwide entries welcome!
BTW -- that Simply Color FQ bundle? That's what I'm going to use for my own Sugar Block Club quilt!
