I Feel Lucky

And so I should!

I won an autographed copy of Scrap-Basket Sensations by Kim Brackett from a comment on Quilt Times blog. Kim and the very talented quilters who helped test her patterns had a giveaway blog tour. There were hundreds and hundreds of comments but the random number generator picked me, on my late father's birthday. How neat is that?

In addition to being a fabric-aholic I am also a book-aholic and that makes this lucky day even sweeter because this looks to be a super book.

It is rare to find more than one "I have GOT to make this" project in a book. So far from the 18 patterns in the book I found three, and counting because there have been several "Oh that's nice" moments which often inevitably lead to a new project .....

What will be first?

  • Like Sue I am tempted by Island Chain, see it in her header. I have a particularly deep collection of honey through apricot to cocoa batiks at the moment.
  • I was compelled to enter the drawing by Sparkler, at right, I don't know why because I am a bit 'triangled out' right now but it spoke to me, loudly.
  • Flowers for Nana Girl is named after author Kim Brackett's longtime quilting buddy Karen aka Nana Girl (with whom I share a passion for Miss Rosie's quilt patterns) scroll down to see this beauty on her blog, it is probably calling the loudest, and oh goodness, I might have to buy some fabric for it.
Fancy that! Thank you very much Kim Brackett.

Y'all come back!
