I'm a winner!
Yes, I won this beautiful quilt. It arrived in the mail yesterday. Viv from Highway Cottage in New Zealand had a giveaway. She had made it for the Spring Blooms Mini-Quilt Swap and then decided to make another one for her partner. I am so glad she did.
While, your eyes are feasting on the quilt, I will sneak in the f word. Fabric! Now, I was never one of the kids who had the designer clothes and I at times felt left out. I have been reading for months about the amazing modern fabrics that are out there, including Far, Far Away. I came off my healthy lifestyle and bought some. In Canada, we do not have as many fabric choices as some off the other countries and our fabric is more expensive. I found a great Canadian online fabric store, called Pink Panda Fabrics. I also bought some Sandi Henderson's Farmer's Market. I think my favourite is the mermaid fabric. I got the package yesterday and I got to feel what first love is again. I understand now, what all of the fascination is about. If you are going to indulge, make it good and I definitely made it great!
