See this? *gulp* It arrived a few weeks ago, but I've been kind of afraid to share about it. This is the result of, "Gee, I think I need just a few Kona solids to better work the 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge. I'll only order a few quarter yards for the mini quilt I've designed." (Did you catch that - for a mini! Not a full top, not a completed quilt - I went way WAY overboard!) Yup. So this happened. It's shameful! Don't get me wrong, I love every single piece to death, but you can see that I clearly got a little carried away with purples, and then while I was in over my head, I added a few other things as well. (And I know Molli Sparkles - who's away and has left guest hosting to Mila+Cuatro this week - likes us to list what everything is, but I can't sacrifice the next two hours to typing them all out and looking up links. If there's a specific print you're wondering about, though, leave me a comment and I'll let you know what it is! And in the meantime, you can of course find them all over at Pink Chalk Fabrics : )
Here are some more detailed shots...
I'm happy to announce that Angela Bullard of Sewing with Squeak is the winner of my Valentine's Day blogoversary giveaway! I asked readers what they were doing to celebrate, and it sounds like her planned sushi date night ended up unexpectedly postponed, so I hope her $25 gift certificate to Westwood Acres Fabric is a nice consolation prize. Enjoy!
Ok, ok, and my one last reminder ; )
Next Saturday I'll be kicking off the 30/30 Sewing Challenge here at BBD.
A chance for you to sew 30 minutes a day for 30 days just for you!
I gave more details here & you can find all the dates and grab the button right here.
Join the goals link up on March 1st with a quick post about the project(s) you've chosen for the challenge - anything related to sewing, it's up to you! We'll share our progress weekly, and there will be a chance to win prizes when the challenge wraps up. Looking forward to a month of "selfish sewing" with you!
