YAY! Winners and More . . .

We have winners for both pattern giveaways! Woo-Hoooo! Hubby picked the numbers, as usual, so two of you have him to thank, and the rest of you can blame him, not me, right?!!


The winner of the applique pattern, Posies in my Pockets, is Victoria M.!


And the winner of the Yellow Brick Road pattern is Anna (Quiltmom).

Congratulations ladies! Email me your mailing addresses and I'll get the goodies in the mail to you next week!

On Saturday afternoon (Pacific time), I'll start posting directions for making the St. Patrick's Day topper/wallhanging, so watch for them.


In the meantime, while you're waiting for me, look through your stash for green fabric (the shamrocks will take less than a fat quarter/quarter yard), background fabric (I'm guessing about a half yard but it may be a little more), a bit of fabric in two colors or shades for the ribbon border, and whatever border fabrics you'd like--I used a little more green for an inside border and a floral outer border (about a half yard). I should also mention that I used a variety of scrappy green fabrics for the shamrocks; you can go scrappy or use all the same fabric in your blocks--whatever suits your fancy!

The weekend is here--finally! And I think it's time to have some fun!

I have lots of green fabric and plenty for background too. I'll have to look through it later today.

I am looking forward to the pattern. I will go through my greens to see if I need to pick-up more.
I just got back from southern Ca and stopped in quite a few quilt shops on the way home. I asked in each shop if they had the cherry apron panel and not one had it. They all thought it sounded great. I will keep looking. One shop owner looked it up and told me Moda didn't make it, but another one did that started with a "B". I can't remember the name of the company.
If anyone is interested the Central Coast quilt shop tour starts June 5th-June 7th. It starts in Paso Robles, CA and ends Carpinteria, CA
