Yesterday I put the final stitch in my Delft China tumbler quilt. It's a small quilt, 33" x 35", but the layers and the quilting make it so cozy. It's not quite big enough for a cuddle quilt, but could certainly keep my knees warm on a cold morning!
I recently won a charm pack from Quilt Taffy. The sisters, Corrie and Des, have a wonderful blog, a great place to visit for ideas and inspiration. They also have a weekly Thursday giveaway which I was fortunate to win. Their Etsy shop is filled to the rafters with a wonderful assortment of fabric treasures, patterns, kits and quilts.
The charm pack is called "A Walk in the Woods" by Aneela Hoey for Moda. It's a collection of pinks, aquas, reds, and greys, perfect colors to chase away these gloomy winter days!
When the gals notified me that I had won, I decided it would be much more beneficial to me (chuckle) if I added a few things to the order. So my little win, thanks to Corrie and Des, became a little bigger, thanks to me!
I'm planning to try my new Lil Twister ruler with the charm packs. I've seen several tutorials by quilters in blogland that are sure to be of help, including Corrie's at Quilt Taffy, Connie's at Quilting By The River, and Paulette's at Sweet P Quilting and Creations. All these ladies have made gorgeous creations using the Lil Twister ruler.
When I'm ready to start, I'll be sure to share my progress with you!
Have you seen the free Block of the Month over at The Raspberry Rabbits? Michelle puts out a new block on the 15th of every month...a little wool applique, fabrics, and bunnies...what's not to love? I also fell in love with a pattern she created called Little Houses No. 1. You can see it here. It has a little bit of everything I like, including embroidery, quilting, houses and hearts. And a bonus is that the pattern arrived wrapped like a present with a lollypop attached. I love presents! Thanks Michelle and the Bunnies!
And thanks to you for coming by. It's a great day for quilting!
