I Won Some Fat Quarters and WIP Wednesday

I was going through all the pictures I took last week and realized that I had forgotten to post about the fun surprize in the form of a squishie that was waiting for me when I got home from Canada.

While I was away getting our youngest settled into his second year of college, I got an e-mail from Impera Magna over at The Adventures of the Empress of the Universe telling me that I was one of the winners of 4 Citron/Gray FQs from Michael Miller!

It was so much fun to arrive home after driving for two days and find this parcel waiting for me.

Gray and Citron fat quarters I won

Thank you Freda!

In my comment on the giveaway post, I mentioned that I’d make a tote bag out of the fat quarters if I won, but since I’ve received them it’s been fun to imagine them transformed into all sorts of different things… so for now, I’m just enjoying them as is.

WIP Wednesday

My list of unfinished projects had one more item added to it last week.

Smiling Sunflower Blocks sewn together

I’ve got all the blocks on my Smiling Sunflower quilt sewn together, but after going through my stash, I couldn’t find anything that I had enough of to make the borders.

The fat quarter bundles I used for the quilt were quilt shop fabrics, so I want the borders to be made of the same quality fabric.  And that means waiting until the next time we make a trip that takes us close to a quilt shop.

Then there is this pile of quilts and table runner/toppers in need of quilting and binding.  The table runner/toppers are going to be used to practice some more FMQing on.

    What a great idea to put everything in a bag to complete a project.. I try and do this for little stitcheries, but never thought of it for big projects.. Love your cheerful quilt…
