I finished my Scrappy Stars table runner and even have the binding on. The fabrics collection is Kate Spain’s Cuzco, it is a nice bright collection. The pattern is from the Little Charmers II by Heather Mulder Peterson. You can see Kona White is whiter than snow!
My neighbours shed is a great backdrop for some of my quilts and I had to laugh when I noticed how they ‘lock’ their shed! Only in Canada!!
Now to my Lucky Duck story….
Yesterday was our guilds Christmas party and it was a lot of fun! Along with our Silent Auction, which we had almost 50 items in, we had three fabric draws and a quilt draw. On top of that we had a Show and Tell draw, a Membership draw, and Rae’s Challenge draw. Rae’s Challenge was a great idea and at our last years Christmas party Rae challenged all the members to make one quilt to donate to the guild that we would then donate to a charity. So those that donated quilts got there name in a draw and I won that draw!! This is the bundle of fabric I won, definitely my colors. Rae had made a quilt of this collection and you can see it here.
Next we had our 3 fabric draws, there were two bundles I really wanted so that is were most of my ‘fun money’ for the night went… I threw all my eggs in two basket so to speak! Luckily the third fabric draw was the most popular so my odds of winning the two I wanted were good…strategy is key ;) And as it turns out it worked!! Here is the bundle that I won, it is a Holly Taylor collection called Northern Solitudes. It is an older collection but one I have always loved it.
Oh yeah….this is the next fabric draw I won!!! Giggle!!! Yes I won THREE draws…..and of coarse you can imagine the disgust on everyone’s faces by that point…. just kidding but I was definitely the fair target for teasing the rest of the night and loved it! It really was my lucky night! :)
