Sunday Stash #140 – NGAQB2 + Liberty Winner
I told you a few weeks ago about how the No Girls Allowed Quilt Bee 2 (#NGAQB2) was about to turn the fabulous dial way up. Well, when I received my first round package from John “Quilt Dad” Adams I was shocked, and some might even say appalled, by how much fabric he sent with it. His initial fabric pull must have included like ten yards of about twenty different fabrics. Gurl, you need to settle down! It made my head spin with possibilities, and instantly created a creative block. I had to simplify that madness, so I gathered only his mustards and golds, combined them with the navies and indigos, and added some choices from my own collection. After regaining some focus, I’ve been able to start working with this luscious bundle for the first border of his quilt. I’ll be share to post pictures once it is finished by the end of this month!
Okay, and we need a winner of the Liberty Bundles of Love, right?! There were sixty-one eligible entries, and I asked daughter Charlotte to randomly choose a number. Here’s what she had to say, “Is this for a winner? Ummm…. foorrrttttyyy-three!” Well that goes to Lucy from Charm About You who picked the Sunrise Over the City bundle with the eponymous Lucy Daisy fabric. Congrats Lucy, I know you’ll love these! Once again, thanks to The Strawberry Thief for supporting Molli Sparkles, the Glitterati and our love of fabric! Go say thank you by signing up for their newsletter, or grabbing your own Liberty bundle (hello, $5 international shipping!)
As a side note, I’m almost done with a few secret sewing projects, and I promise I’ll be able to resume some normal and frequent blog posts once they are out of the way! Kisses!
