The winner is...

The winner of the mini chocolate and caramel quilt is...
Quilting Babcia - it was mailed off last week and should be arriving in its new home any day now. 

The oriental lilies are just opening up...oh the fragrance! 

Just noticed a tiny little bug making its way around one of the petals...reminded me I still have many tiny little fabric bugs to applique on the Rowdy Flat quilt...but working on border #3 gives me a glimpse at the completion of this project.

All for now - taking a break from blogging. Hoping everyone stays safe and healthy.

10th year of blogging - giveaway!!

July, 2010 was the beginning of my little blog. 10 years have passed and along the way, I have learned so much and “met” readers from so many places. At times, I fell away for weeks at a time as life presented different priorities but when a new posting was put up, you were back again. 

So want to offer a little giveaway as my way of saying Thank You! for taking the time to visit and comment. 

This has come about in part from Wendy over at The Constant Quilter  who put out a request for anyone to send her an orphan block that she could incorporate into a “Community Supper” quilt. I sent her a little basket block for her to use and received the sweetest packet of chocolatey browns and caramel squares. What a delightful surprise and I knew how they could be used. 

Using the pattern “Little Women” from Pam Buda’s book, 2 little quilts are made up of Wendy’s fabric squares and additions from my own stash. What to do with 2 little quilts? Well, I must have one for myself - chocolatey browns and caramels being a favorite color palette of mine...that other little quilt...

If you would like to leave a comment on this blog posting, your name will go into a drawing - I would so enjoy sending this mini off to a new home. Both quilts have the same backing - a vintage piece from a collection of Jo Morton’s - Jo’s Friends. 

I will keep this posting open until July 14th (Tuesday).

Again, thank you for visiting. Please continue to be safe and stay well.
