Lucky Duck!


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!  :)



  1. Sew happy for you! love all your prizes.

  2. Yes, you take our teasing so well and you are so very lucky. Can't wait to see how these collections are used. I know we won't have to wait long.
