I am a giveaway winner. Yeah.

I went to a meetup with a sister modern quilt guild a couple of weekends ago.  We met at the Quilt Haus in New Braunfels, Texas.  Deanna, the owner of the shop, was given some charm squares packs and fabric stacks by Jim the Moda rep for a nice giveaway.  I got the grand prize.  It is 40 fat quarters of Simply Color by V and Co.  I am so excited.  I have never had that much fabric from one line.  Hmmm.  Now what to do with it.  I have been checking out queen size quilt patterns and have not found one that screamed out to me.  If you guys have any suggestions please feel free to comment.  Below is a picture of my lovely stack.  I keep the stack by my computer for inspiration.

I finished up my wonky circle of stars from the very berry kerry QAL.  I needed scraps of the very same material for another quilt so I had to get on it.  I think I am going to use it for a wall hanging.  I made the mistake of buying a very cheap piece of solid material because I liked the color.  It does not like to be ironed so I am assuming it is not going to like to go in the dryer.  Note to self:  Do not ever buy cheap solid fabric.  I am going to stick with Kona, Moda, or Michael Miller from now on.  

I have been busy putting charity quilt kits together and cutting up fabric and strips for our new charity quilt for the guild.  Today I am heading to the Austin Quilt Guild Quilt Show.  I heard they have some really fabulous quilts.  Of course there are the vendors.  Yeah.  Then on to another meetup here in Austin.  It is always fun to get together with fellow quilters.  I am hoping to win more fabric.  A charm square pack would be great.


  1. You lucky girl! I've been wanting some of that fabric line for a long time. I haven't found it in the stores yet at all! Your stars are fun!
