We Have A Winner!

First off, I hope everyone has a chance to celebrate National Quilting Day! I paid a trip to my LQS to check out the new fabric and check out the scrap bin.
I signed up again for the swap at The Curious Quilter.  I think I got a nice variety.
Unfortunately there are a lot of jelly roll strips but I can't use them as they get ragged and the size I swap is 2.5 inches. There's just no way to neaten the edges.

Came home and chose a winner for the Winter Blues Giveaway by using the Random Number Generator and #185 came up.

Wow, what a great giveaway!!!
At the moment I'm working on a Riley Blake instructor's project and binding a queen sized quilt :)

I had so much fun hosting this and reading all the comments. I responded to everyone who I had a way of getting in contact with. The comments were just awesome! I learned about a lot of new fabric lines and reading about what projects were in the works was so inspiring. Thank you to all who took the time to comment!

I've been asked to review Jennifer Chiaverini's new Elm Creek Quilts novel, The Giving Quilt so that's coming up the beginning of April. I have 2 books to give away and some quilting pins which are kind of neat.
 I've never read any of the Elm Creek Quilts novels so I am really looking forward to it. Here are the pins,

Thanks or visiting!

Congrats to Erin!

I have read the entire Elm Creek Series.... The Giving Quilt is a wonderful book. I only have The Giving Quilt pin though. I even got the pattern from her blog and made a version of The Giving Quilt.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I also have finished reading the Giving Quilt book. It is a lovely story of different interwoven characters. I really have enjoyed reading all her stories- I read Sonoma Rose just recently as well. The pins look very pretty. I am sure that your winners are going to love reading the book.
