a few wins !

I can't believe its July and I haven't posted about my lucky little wins from earlier in the year - oops !

In the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day in December last year I was the lucky recipient of a fat quarter bundle of Bella by Lotta Jansdotter from the wonderful Leanne of She Can Quilt so my year got off to a good start.

I've finally decided to make a square in a square quilt with this bundle with some coordinating solids.

Then I won a gift voucher from Pink Chalk Fabrics as part of a giveaway by Rachel to "Celebrate" do.good stitches, the charity group I sew for.  I decided to purchase some solids to use with some charm packs I have.  I didn't see the email that I'd won until I got back from the cruise so it was a nice surprise when I got back home !

In January I entered Felicity's giveaway over at Felicity Quilts and won a copy of Modern Quilting by Jacquie Gering and Katie Pedersen, a book that's been on my wish list for a while.  Its a pretty amazing book with some wow factor quilts !

I joined Kristy's And Sew On paper pieced BOM this year and linked up my first block and won a fabric scrap pack from Fabricworm.  Wow - their scrap pack is the most amazing stack of fabric - I received almost 3 yards of amazing organic Birch fabric - they are mainly from the set sail range - and just the other day I saw the square knots quilt by Amy Smart that uses the same fabric so I'm going to make that quilt - it will be perfect !

and this week I discovered I've won a double wedding ring template set from Emily through the NYC Mod Quilters EZ double wedding ring challenge blog hop !

I've had a pile of Lost and Found fabric (by My Mind's Eye) put aside for this project for a while - I saw the pattern in an old Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine when I was moving last year and haven't been able to find the magazine since !  I thought I'd put it in a safe place but I'm sure it will turn up.  Anyway now that I've won the template set I've got no excuses !

### updated - yesterday I received an email from Amy Smart to tell me I'd won a DWR template set from her as well - two wins in one blog hop - unheard of !!! I'm sure Amy will do a redraw :)

I feel very lucky to have won these fabulous prizes - thanks to some very generous bloggers !


  1. So happy for you! You are a lucky girl!

  2. Sounds like you have the magic touch these days! I always think fabric is the best-est thing to win. You've done very well for yourself. Way to go!
