Bea - Happy, Happy Belated Birthday. How generous to have a giveaway for your birthday. I have never had a stack (layer cake). I think it would be fun to win. I firmly believe giveaways go to the right person at the right time. Thank you for being so generous and to Connecting Threads for their generosity, too.

Happy belated Birthday. I have been wanting to try this purse (https://mypatchwork.wordpress.com/2013/02/16/quilt-as-you-go-improv-patchwork-school-bag/)
It's a quilt as you go, and I think the fabric would look great on this purse. I may want to add longer strips from my stash, but it would still look great. Have a great day!

I hope you had a wonderful birthday! The pattern I've been loving lately for 10" squares is "Lazy Sunday" by may chappell. (http://www.maychappell.com/lazy-sunday-quilt/) I start with squares from one collection and add lots of fabrics from my stash. The pattern goes together quickly and looks great every time. I loved the Birchtree Lane fabrics the first time around and I think this new group is even better. Thanks so much for the lovely giveaway!

I don't know about anyone else but those birdies are screaming out to be fussy cut and used as the centre of something, I'd for sure cut it down to squares for a table runner based on the birds. Even though I can't win it.....(Sigh) Wishing you a very belated but Happy Birthday B, xxx

Happy Bea-lated Birthday, fellow Capricorn! Mine was the 16th, and the day flew by too fast!
Would love to make a delectable mountains--beautiful colors for that

Sandra Walker said...

I would cut them into 5" and 2.5" squares, and create something, most likely as a charity quilt, but possibly for my aunt who turned 80, and who loves blue. I love blue and green and have not seemed to realize this until a couple months ago, after making 2 quilts in this combo, and collecting fabric for a few months for a third in the same combo but with black and white! Thank you!

Lindsay said...

I owe my nephew a baby quilt- I would leave them 10" but cut diagonally to make a giant star quilt. Thanks for the chance to win!
