Thank you all so much for your kind words about Barb, the owner of my local quilt shop and the talented lady who does much of my longarm quilting. As I said before, if you are ever in central Minnesota, I sure hope you will zip over to Foley and check out Quilts on Broadway! Now . . . onto the giveaway winner!
As in the past, I copied and pasted all of your entries into an Excel file and did a nice big shuffle and reshuffle. I don't know if I can do any more of these giveaways, because I really hate that there is only one winner . . . which is why I never pick the winning number! ;) I waited until my daughter got home from track practice and asked her to pick a number. The lucky winner of the "Aloha Girl" (Fig Tree & Company) charm pack and two mini charms is Busy Lizzie's Pink Patch. Well that's a cute screen name! Congrats! Busy Lizzie, let’s get in touch so I can ship those out to you!
Welcome New Sponsor!I also wanted to extend a warm welcome to the newest sponsor of Carried Away Quilting, Quilt Girls! My goodness . . . I don’t think I’ve ever seen a larger collection of children’s fabric. Their focus is on darling children’s prints, panels and cloth book panels. If you are looking for a print based on a popular children’s book or movie character (both vintage and current), my bet is that Quilt Girls has it! I hope you’ll visit their site and look at their awesome selection. I am a big fan of cloth book panels . . . hmmm, maybe I see a project in my near future?
Upcoming Blog HopsPlease don’t forget to check back during the next few weeks. I’m really excited about the two blog hops for Riley Blake Designs just around the corner! On April 25 I will show you my newest projects using Elea Lutz’ latest line, “Strawberry Biscuit.” I have some cute little items to coordinate with the Coffee Time Quilt I showed you in March.
Then on May 7 it will be my turn on the “Backyard Roses” blog hop for Nadra Ridgeway of Ellis & Higgs. Here is a sneak peak of one of my two mini quilts for the blog hop, and I have another sweet project planned as well. Besides being talented designers, both Elea and Nadra are very gracious and kind people to work with, and I am thankful for the opportunity!
Quilt RetreatI am off to my annual quilt retreat at the end of the week. I’m not sure if I will “plug in” and stay in touch with you all through Instagram and Facebook, or if I will completely “unplug” (all but my sewing machine and iron of course). I do know one thing, I can’t wait to be reunited with my quilting and scrapbooking friends!
Thanks once again for stopping by the blog! I hope you get carried away quilting often!
