A Great Week!

This was a great week, quilting-wise.  I won a giveaway on Amy Bradley's blog last week, and my prize came in the mail Tuesday.  This box came at the perfect time - we had another snowstorm Tuesday and opening this box was definitely the high point of my week.  Look at all the wonderful things she sent!
 This cute baby panel from her Bundle of Joy line, and...
the pattern for the Babies quilt, along with two fat quarters of each of these wonderful fabrics, also from her Bundle of Joy line from Timeless Treasures.  I just love the stripe, and the dots and babies are great, too.  This quilt is so cute, I think I'm going to have to make the big quilt, as well as make a quilt with the panel. 

Here's a picture of the full quilt.  This pattern is made with fusible web and machine blanket stitching, and the pattern has full size pattern sheets and very detailed instructions - it looks like it will be so much fun.  Thank you so much for this generous giveaway prize, Amy - I can't wait to get started on this.  Be sure to go to her website and look at all the fun patterns she creates.  She has a great sense of humor, and it shows in her patterns.

I bought another pattern by Amy Bradley a few years ago at the Chicago Quilt Show, and jumped into making it right away.  This is called Kitty City.   I had lots of fun collecting bright fabrics for this quilt.  Here's the top half:
  and here's the bottom half.
This is a pretty big quilt, so I couldn't get it all in one picture.  The cats all had cute names.  I think this one was Mona:
and this is Slim:
It's hard to see in the picture, but these are all machine blanket stitched with black thread.  It was so much fun to choose all the different fabrics for this one.  She has a quilt with dogs, too, that is really cute, and is on my someday list, as is a wall hanging of cows in swimming trunks. 

Mother Nature has cooperated fully with my wish to stay inside and quilt lately, with two snowstorms this week.  I'm ready to be done with that now!  Today was sunny and had a hint of spring in the air, despite the foot of snow still on the ground. 

I'm making progress on my February UFOs and will show some of that later this week.  Thanks for stopping by!
