First of all let me say Thank You so much to everyone who helped me out and voted for my quilt over at 13 Spools in the Prism linky contest!!!
I won, yay! So excited. I really do love that quilt. I guess it was my first all solids quilt and my first paper pieced quilt, so it was a big milestone for me. I received a 75.00 gift certificate to FatQuarter Shop….hmmm. What to get??? I was just perusing and am liking these:
What do you think?
Got any awesome quilt plans for the weekend?
Well, I am going home tonight to work on a fall/pumpkin-y table runner for a silent auction…and by work on I mean start:) In all fairness I have made a pile of orange fabrics! I have a few ideas and I am hoping they come out as planned…trying to make my pumpkins sassy!
I also got my FQ bundle of Acacia from I don’t do dishes! Ah, so lovely…but I must wait. I need to finish quilting my chevron first! Here are some pics.
Isn’t that raccoon adorable!
Love the more geometric prints.
Is this raccoon making you feel uncomfortable???
And believe it or not I just realized with my bonus points on my credit card I can spend them for double the amount if I shop on Amazon! No problem. I snagged this Basics set of Aurifil thread. I won a spool in a contest a while back and really loved it, so I am a new convert and need to bulk up my thread stash:)
These spools are not cheap but I have to say they last a long time, a lot more on there!
Oh, and before I go…here is a new fabric shop I came across over on Happy Quilting’s blog:
10% off with the code: GOBLISS. Give ’em a try! The prices look very reasonable:)
Feel free to visit on FB here, and give them a like!
Keep it Sassy♥
Hey Ms. Sassy! Congrats on your win, you totally deserved it. That prism quilt is stunning!
Yay for you Paula! Your Prism quilt is beautiful and I am so excited you won. I don’t think you will have any problems spending that gift certificate. (If you do, you know where to find me!)
Congrats!!! Awesome win and great stash!
Wow, what great additions to your stash! I am trying hard to resist Acacia, so gorgeous though! I’m always up for Aurifil for quilting. Lucky you getting one of those pretty boxes :) Thanks for linking up!
Congrats on the win! Love that quilt :) I must get me some of that raccoon print pronto.
Love the Lola collection you are thinking about. All of these are so cute, contemporary, but remind some of fabric my grandmother used for aprons and quilts in the ’50’s. What’s old is new again, huh??! So glad you won. That was a beautiful quilt. Yes, the raccoon is cute!!
Love the fabric choices but really love enchant. That fox!! I got me some Acadia too! I got the butterfly pattern and there’s talk/rumor of a QAL. Can’t remember who or where. Might need to play since VQB is almost finished.
Congrats on your win! Happy shopping! My credit card lets me shop through Amazon too. Hm…I might have to check that out.
if you want to stock up on different weights of aurifil thread, check out the door crashers at tristan italian threads. They are located in Canada, but the postage isn’t too bad to the US. I have ordered several groupings of 24 spools of aurifil. They change up the door crashers every couple of weeks, so sometimes they have 50wt, and sometimes they don’t. The 40 and 28wt are great for quilting, and the 12 weight is great when you really want chunky thread. see http://www.tristan.bc.ca/cart/home.php?cat=38
Congratulations on your win, Paula! Love the new stash fabrics…. And even that raccoon! Hope your work on the pumpkin table runner goes just as planned! Looking forward to seeing it.
Congratulations Paula! You deserved it! You had a really lovely quilt.
I just KNEW that Prism quilt was special! Congrats on the win. That Lola FQ bundle is really calling to me.
Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
