giveaway winner and update


it’s time to pick the giveaway winner from last week’s post for a copy of McCall’s Quick Quilts that I have a quilt in.

I had 44 comments


mr.random picked #17

Remember last weeks mini doll quilt?

I gave it to Sonja for her “Orange Bear” we’ve named it that because my son has a big bear he named yellow bear when he was little, so since this one is more orange, the name seems to fit.


june 371

I also finished the 3rd of the donation quilts for Quilts beyond borders

june 373

I quilted “twosie” leaves and twosie loops- inspired by the quiltmaker CD from Electric quilt

june 374

I finished another blue/yellow kaleidoscope block as a leader and ender block

june 380

I also got a package from Jane’s fabrics

some lovely Presencia cotton balls for embroidery- wait and see, I’m doing her blog hop next month!

june 384

I realized I had a few larger balls already so the red basket didn’t fit them all.

Now WHAT should I embroider next?
