Winner! Plus Karla Alexander

Mr.Random Generator aka Dog Dish coughed up a winner for the fabulous wool kit by Primitive Gatherings and sponsored by Sew Many Quilts it is....Rebbeca in AK!!! email your mailing info with 24 hrs!  I have decided that since I don't want summer to end I am going to continue the Give Aways!!! Party, Party, Party...if you are interested in this wonderful designed wall hanging sponsored by QuiltWorks commemorating the fabulous town of Bend and it's infusion of micro-breweries just leave a comment on this blog post! The Bend logo is laser cut and already has fusible on the back...so easy :) (wouldn't this be a fabulous gift for the man in your life!) The winner will be announced on Friday and a new Give Away will be announced!

I wanted to share the post card I bought at the Wendy's Wish Upon a Card which is a heartwarming fund raiser in memory of a "generous of spirit" quilter.  Well, actually I bought 3 post cards as I do my birthday shopping at the auction and so 2 of them are a surprise.  So I won't be able to show them to you :(  But the one I bought for HH was absolutely perfect for him!  Karla Alexander created this card and everyone who viewed it wondered what it was???

In minute detail she recreated the topographical map of Sisters!!!  Since HH is a retired Cartographer I knew I had to get it for him.  It was beautifully framed by High Desert Frameworks.  Hundreds of people viewed this card with all manner of interpretation of what it represented...a turtle??? hummm, what is that?  I hung it up and when HH came home he walked right up to it and said..."Hey, that's a topographical map of Sisters!"  I knew I had picked the perfect card out for him :)

I decided it was high time I started my Designer Mystery Quilt from the Fat Quarter Shop since 2 blocks had already arrived!  They are so generous with the fabrics provided so if you make a mistake you have enough fabric to fix it.  Let me tell you though...Block One took me 3 hours to create...12.5 x 12.5...yep, I am going to have to keep up on this one!

Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday...I am heading to QuiltWorks for the Woolie group and to check out the new inventory!
