Oh Gosh! I'm a winner! A Double winner!

Talk about giddy!

I won a book over at PollythePatchworker!  Not just any book, but this book!


This was a giveaway that was happening on various blogs across blogland, sponsored by Martingale.  And whilst I've made several quilts along these lines, I'm looking forward to having a good play again!

And then blow me, I won the most fabulous prize from Seamstar!  They are fabulously friendly online fabric shop based here in the UK, and is THE place to get some of those amazing fabrics that are so hard to get in the UK. 

Anyway, I'll cut to the chase!  I was just getting dressed this morning when the postman called...

except I wasn't in any fit state to answer the door...

The teenage diva was dutifully dispatched....

And returned with several packages, one of which was this little beauty. 



Isn't is so beautifully wrapped ... 2 meters of usable ribbon just waiting for some creativity! 


 

and inside was the most wonderful fabrics  ....


And now after looking and searching and a little play time, I have a plan ...

Thank you Courtney!  I'm already having such fun with these fabrics! 

Happy Quilting!

How lucky you are. That fabric is divine and I love your palette. Can't wait to see what you do with it.
The book looks quite challenging but such a striking quilt on the cover.
