I Won!!!

I won fabric and a book! I donated several quilts last year to the Charity Baby Quilt program. Usually in June, they draw names for prizes. Of course, with Covid, and no in-person meetings, that did not happen. At the last Zoom guild meeting, my name was drawn. I received these in the mail. I love that the grey and pink fabrics are so “not me!” It’s going to be fun to play with them … and yes, there will likely be a baby quilt or two made from them. There’s a total of 4 yards – which I will add to my “bought” amount below. Thank you Nora and Carol for facilitating the Baby Quilt Program!

I showed you this last week … it’s still in the same state.

Hopefully, I can start on my SAHRR.

I did make a few Covid ornaments: They are approximately 2″ x 4″ with small pieces of elastic on each end and “2020” embroidered on them. I plan to stick them in a few Christmas cards.


Scrappy 4 patches: Is still waiting to be quilted.

    • Hi Emily,
      I’ll have to dream up something to do with the fabrics … they will make a lovely baby quilt!
      Glad you laughed at the mask ornaments! I couldn’t resist!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


    • Hi Carol,
      The ornaments were super easy to make … I just stitched 2020 with the alphabet on my machine and then cut the fabric 2 1/4″ x 4″ … had 2″ elastic pieces … sewed around (right sides together), left an opening to turn … turned it … glued the opening closed … easy peasy!

  2. Hi Gail! Congrats on winning four yards of fabric in such cute prints. Those will be fun to play with for a different change for you. The book looks like a fun one, too. Yay you for getting your list all completed. I really need to buckle down and get the last three projects complete for 2020. It’s been a struggle to get in the sewing room lately. Thanks for linking up this week! ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Hi Roseanne!
      It will be fun to play with the fabric …
      With your sewing room struggle … set yourself a goal of 15 minutes a day … that’s all. Just 15 minutes. You’ll be amazed at what gets done!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
