Everyone had a pretty good chance of winning this week with only 10 entries, but that Random Number Generator picked Julie again! Seriously, I didn't cheat! Congratulations Julie!
Hello! I have been rather missing this week - there's nothing big going on - just kids, laundry, shopping, 18lbs of strawberries (there was a great sale), picking fabric for a new project...all of the normal stuff that doesn't seem interesting enough to post about.
But I did search through my stash today and made this custom fat quarter bundle of fabrics that will go to someone who has completed blocks 28-30 of the Skill Builder Sampler. I bought the cowgirl fabric years ago - I think it was my first purchase of yardage at a quilt store. It was made up into the cutest pajamas complete with a bandanna collar for my little girl. She is 11 now and her 2 year old sister is still wearing them. They are the cutest things ever - the girls and the pjs. :)
But I digress... this month for the Skill Builder Sampler we worked on odd shapes and templates (tumblers, apple cores and triangles) and I sure felt like my skills were stretched. I realized that I don't like tracing and cutting out fabric by hand (that dang apple core block!). Isn't that why they invented rotary cutters? But the results sure are cute!
If you completed blocks 28-30, leave a comment saying so and I will enter you into the drawing to win some of my favorite fabrics. I will pick a winner on Friday, May 4th. We will also start making blocks with inset or y-seams that day.
And just in case you haven't visited the We Can Do It! Skill Builder Sampler flicker group lately, here is a sampling of some of the blocky-goodness that has been happening over there. You guys are great!
