Sunday Stash - Winning!
I feel like a double winner this week... first off, I won the Last Chance Link Up over at The Sassy Quilter for the Triangle QAL. If you're looking for inspiration or sewing tips to make your own triangle project, you should really go check out Paula's series - helpful tutorials and lots of gorgeous submissions! I think there were many more lovely finishes submitted than mine, but it was a random generator thingy, so that helped my odds ; ) I received a $25 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop, as well as the pattern and thread shown below.
And as if that unexpected stash boost wasn't enough for the week, my first Stash Bee mail arrived, too! Daisy at Ants to Sugar sent me her contribution for my queen bee block, and she tucked in some extra charm squares she thought I'd love. Thanks, Daisy!
On a related note, I've asked for a block made entirely of HSTs and while looking for tutorials, came across a recommendation for the Quilt in a Day 6 1/2" Triangle Square Up Ruler. I hesitated a few weeks, but knowing how many I have ahead to flesh out my eventual quilt, decided to go ahead and get one as my pile of to-be-trimmed keeps growing.
I'm off to tidy... yesterday I talked my husband into helping me relocate my longarm up a flight of stairs, so now I have a lot of things to put away that were moved for the task. Hoping that after dedicating August to family time and home reorganization, back-to-school will bring a nice household flow and lots of time to finally dig in to quilting again.
What's new to you? Anything wonderful that you've added to your stash this week?
Linking up with Sunday Stash.
I've been on a bit of a shopping spree. I'm all set for the next two Sunday Stash posts with what's headed my way. ;-) I also hope that I can buckle down and sew sew sew in the days and weeks ahead.
Just ordered 13 FQ of Charley Harper....I am slow but sure..and the sure enuf was a 25% off at Fabric Worm!!!!
Congrats on the win! Nice additions to your stash.
Congratulations on winning such a cool prize - I like winning things like the colorful Aurifil; sometimes I just buy neutrals so much a helping hand with colored thread can be a nice boost! And how thoughtful of Daisy to send a long a sweet charm pack! :)
Nice! Those blocks are looking good as well. Your quilt will be lovely once you put it all together. With this colors it'll be like 4th of July all year round.
