Quilters Candy Unwrapped June Winner

Image
My last project The mini tumbler quilt I am working on with the Aspen Frost Moda Candy (2 1/2 charms). I used Missouri Star Quilt Co. 2 1/2 Mini Tumbler Template to cut them up really quick, and at $3.88 you can't beat the price. Then I realized I had sewn all the rows the same. With a tumbler quilt each row alternates. They are all ready to be sewn back up but my power has been off until this evening! When you live in the woods and a tree falls and breaks the power pole a mile away, it takes at least a day to put up another pole. They had our road blocked all day because the pole came down across the road. Domino effect! No traffic all day, not that we have much, but it was nice. We played with Zoey! Sometimes it is not so bad without T.V. or electronic games, just soft toys and laughter. Reminder Don't forget Half Pint Knits Also, as a special bonus, I am offering the readers of In the Boondocks a 10% discount for the month of June. Use 10BOONDOCKS at checkout to re
