GIVEAWAY #7!

Three more quilts given away this week! 
All went to teachers
who made a difference in the lives of my boys!
Hooray!
This one went to the a wonderful character
who retired this year.
He started each high level math classes with a bit of yoga
and shared grand tales of his colorful past.
Thankfully,
he reached out 
to my oldest and 
made a great connection with him.


I am developing a new quilt crush
on Jen Kingwell!

Here's her book...


here's my growing palette...


Besides the color choices Jen makes,
I like the idea of working on a
a slow cooked quilt with lots of pieces.
(It's not like I need to be in a hurry to make another quilt,
do I?!) 
Many of Jen's patterns
have many, a lot , hundreds of blocks!
I made time this week
to sew with a wonderful bunch 
of happy ladies
and made these blocks...


Congratulations to Sewgirl who won the Kaffe scraps!
(Send her son
 - and Sewgirl - 
some good thoughts as he does the PCT solo!)

This week's giveaway is 7 fat quarters of fabric with text!
