A winner and an invitation

Thank you again to Sew Fresh Fabrics for sponsoring such an awesome giveaway!  I'm sure you're all dying to know who the winner of my awesome half-yard bundle giveaway is...



Drumroll please..

And the winner is: Jenny of Cut.Sew.Iron.Repeat!  She said:


yes, these fabrics are amazingly gorgeous, thanks for a chance...im planning lots of quilts this year...next up is some charity quilts...hope to do a boy quilt and girl quilt! would love to use these fabrics!


Congratulations, Jenny!  I'd love to see the finished products, and I know Peg & Becca at Sew Fresh Fabrics would love that as well.  Thanks you all for entering, this has been a great way to kick off the new year!

In other news, I've had quilts on the brain.  Lots of them.  So much so that I'm dreaming about them.  I feel like it's been a while since I've done a quilt, but in reality it's only been a few weeks - I guess it just feels like longer with the holidays and all.  I've been thinking about a quilt-along...

Let me back up here.  I've got two sets of twins to make quilts for.  One set was just born a few weeks ago, and the other is due next month.  The just-born twins are up first to receive quilts from me.  Needless to say, I've got to get moving here.  I've been sketching for a month now, and I think I'm finally ready to stop sketching and start cutting into these gorgeous stacks of fabric...


Now that I've finally decided on a quilt design, I was thinking that since I need to make two of these, I could turn it into a quilt-along, if anyone is interested in joining me. It sure would be a lot more fun to stitch with all of you!  Let me know what you think!  This quilt will finish out at approximately 54" x 58" and will require 10-12 printed (and/or solid, you choose) fat quarters or a layer cake and a so-far-undetermined-yardage of a solid for sashing.  Any takers?  :)   Here's a sneak peek at the super easy, sliced coin quilt layout.

  3. Two sets of twins? LOL. I really like your sliced coin quilt idea - perfect to use with our "Kona Your World" solids that we will be receiving in early February. I think I would join you in the quilt along.

  6. LOVE your design. This actually would be the PERFECT design for my Margaret's Hope Chest quilt. I was planning to use my Sherbet Pips layer cake but hadn't yet decided on a design.

    Then again, you know me and changing my mind about my design plans. But I'm in for the quilt-along, regardless. : )
