Please Jo, may we have some more? (and giveaway winner)


My favorite remedy to stress is a session in my sewing cave with a good book on my ipod and lots of different repro scraps to play with. The result of such a therapy session is pictured above; my version of the Stacked Coins quilt from Kathleen Tracy's Remembering Adelia book. Most of the little rectangles are from the latest Judie Rothermel collection Civil War Chronicles. I think this is her best Civil War collection since her very first one. (IMHO) For the borders, I decided to finally cut into my fat quarter stash of Jo Morton's Crimson and Clover line from last year. Jo, if you happen to read this, I love, love, love this line and think it should be reprinted. To make you feel sympathy for my plight, picture me as Oliver Twist saying, "Please sir, I want more." I have three other projects in mind for these fabrics and I don't have enough. If any of you reading this have a local quilt shop that still has these fabrics in stock, please send me the name.


Loved how this one turned out so much that I have to include another shot of it. I also found this cute jar (at the back of the photo) at Pottery Barn and decided to capture a couple of my favorite little mini quilts in it.

And, finally, the winner of my mini quilt giveaway (it is the finished one above on the left) is DOROTHY from Dorothy's Threads of Life blog. Congratulations Dorothy!! Email me your address and I will send it off to you right away. Thanks to all of you for your nice comments and I truly wish I could send a mini quilt to everyone. What I can do is another mini quilt giveaway. Stay tuned tomorrow for photos of the next one.
