My lucky stars were aligned for two give-aways lately. Brenda, the Quilting Cowgirl, had a give-away to celebrate her 100th post. I was lusting after the Aviary charm pack. I just love any and all fabric by the Moda designers, 3 Sisters. The bag and quilt pattern have real potential. My brain is searching for fabric to use with them. Ironically, the book The Best of Black Mountain Quilts is the one that I'm using for my current project, Autumn Ridge. I worked (and reversed stitched) on it for most of the time we spent sewing at Brenda's cabin. Since I had the book, I left it with Brenda. She might get the fever to make an Autumn Ridge quilt for her cabin. I have extra strips if you need them, Brenda!
Pam at Mama Spark's World made a stunning quilt out of brown and teal. She gathered her scraps and had a give-away. I was the lucky winner. The colors are different for those I normally use in my quilts, but I love the combination. I'm thinking a bag would be wonderful with these fabric scraps.
Thank you Brenda and Pam! I love the generous, sharing nature of quilters.
