A winner...and a mess...

Thanks to Mr. Random, we have a winner!!!  Thank you all for entering the Accuquilt GO! Baby giveaway.  The super lucky winner of their very own Accuquilt GO! Baby is....

#50 - Linz!!!!!!!!  
I think I want ALL of the dies, but the one that really tickles my excited spot is the alphabet set!!

Congratulations, Linz!  I will be emailing you later this morning for your mailing information.

And because I just can't post without a photo, here's a peek of what I'm working on at the moment.

I'm sure it just looks like I'm making a big mess, but I swear, there's progress in the mess!  Here's a billion (okay, 332) HSTs for my warm/cool quilt, there's stacks of fabric for my 4x5 blocks, there's pieces for my Farmer's Wife blocks, there's some fabric for a little miniquilt I'm starting up this week, and yes.  It's a little bit crazy in there right now.  But I swear, it's going to result in some pretties!!  What are you sewing up today?


  1. Yep, a billion sounds about right! I hope someday I have the patience for projects like that. Right now I am working on a green and yellow plus quilt for my husband, finishing up a quilted dishmat for my kitchen, and the never-ending job of mending little boy pants. I'm very excited to see your warm/cool quilt!

  2. Darn! Congrats to Linz, you lucky duck! :D

  3. trying to not be a procrastinator and piecing my christmas tree skirt- and then using the scraps to make the baby's stocking! Not very exciting- I've been telling myself that I can buy new fabric when I am finished!! Oh the games we play!

  4. Whoa! All that together in one place - I think I'd go batty!

  5. Oh my goodness!!!!!! best morning ever!! Thank you so much!!!! Squee!! I don't think I have enough words to describe how excited I am!! YAY!

    I love your progress picture SO cute!! And gues what! I finished my Kaleidoscope last night!! I'm on cloud nine!! :)

  6. Congratulations Linz! I didn't know that there is alphabets - I just need to get that magic thing!
    Elisabeth, I don't think that's a mess, your work space looks very organized!
    I had a short moment sewing fishes today.

  7. Congrats Linz! I'm sewing a bunch of purses for a 3 day craft sale at a folk festival this weekend. I can't wait! I'm looking forward to seeing some of your finished quilts :)

  8. Hooray for Linz!

    I'm playing catch-up this week. We had family in town and Luke's birthday party, so I've been away from the sewing machine for a few days. I'm hoping to finish the quilting on my second Central Park quilt tonight.

  9. I wish I was sewing something today! Instead, I'm working, going home to make dinner and make nice with the in-laws. :P I'd rather be sewing test blocks for the 4x5!

  10. You always blow me away with all your simultaneous projects. And they all turn out so amazing. I'm working on 36-patch blocks this week, and the summer sampler.

  11. Yaaaay Linz!! Congratulations!

    I know how you feel. My space is such a mess that the mess has actually expanded into several other rooms in the house!


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)


Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a very busy nine year old boy and a one year old baby girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
