Two Great Ways To Make My Day...

Friday was Day One for my "Williamsburg Welcome" quilt project.
I managed to complete the center star motif and add a top and
bottom "Welcome" motif. I also did a little design wall work to
decide how I want the rest of the fabrics I'm using to relate to
the overall look. I'm really happy with my fabric placements
so I'll be back at the sewing machine later today.

This is going much faster than I expected, so I think it will
only take a few days to complete my share of the construction.
Don't be too impressed...it's not a huge quilt.
When finished, it will measure about 48" x 70".
I got a package in the mail yesterday, too.
Anne Sutton at Bunny Hill Designs had a drawing for her
newest fabric line
"Lily & Will".
I entered Anne's fabulous drawing and WON!
I'm over the moon about this collection, which isn't available
to the public until October. Anne is the designer and shared
three fat quarter and squares collections to her winners.
I chose the pink collection. It is a gorgeous series.
If you sew, I know you'll want to get these fabrics for yourself.

Thank you, Anne. I'm loving every piece and can't wait to
make something wonderful with my new fabrics.

A project progressing better than planned
a gift in the mail.
Made my day, I'm telling you!
Just made my day!

Con grats on your fab win!

And I admire what it takes to quilt...looking good.

Thanks for the visit...we just do what we can in getting back to our favorite blogs...I'm going to try and do better too...
Also I'm doing much better after my surgery in Feb and my recent chest/head cold.
Things are looking up.

Well honey you made my day when I opened my comments this morning and almost had another fall from laughing so hard at your comment. Sugar pie you are just tooooo funny. I was afraid to do the post because you know I did not want everyone to leave my site thinking I was totally off my rocker.
No visitors last night so I am good today.
Love of course your quilt. The colors are beautiful and the pattern too.
Your win is you and so glad you were the winner.
Love ya
