I just love walking to the mailbox! Just to see if there is something besides BILLS in it. Today I got three packages and I am so excited! Two of those goodies are winnings from giveaways I entered last month! It is uplifting to win things!The Winnings

First package is hand dyed fabric from Cynthia, a talented designer and awesome artist! She designed the fabric I used in my infinity scarf is Kona Modern Quilts, Merlot Color-story, and blogs at Cynthia Frenette. Pretty fabric that I will use in something special. Cynthia has a great blog and very nice giveaways, check her out! Thank you Cynthia, the fabric is beautiful and I love the little extra, so nice of you to have this giveaway! Cynthia is so sweet she threw in some rick rack and a little heart! It is always fun to find something extra in a package! My second package was from Joanna at Shape Moth, Unique Textile Art. Another very talented woman, her giveaway was through the Fat Quarter Shop, 10 fat quarters of Lemon Cosmo…

Good Deal on Denyse Schmidt DS Collection

Last night I was reading Rita's Red Pepper Quilts, Stash Update from last Sunday and was happy to find Denyse Schmidt DS Quilts Collection. Which is sold at Jo-Ann's! I went to Joann's today because I hate to pay shipping and I had a coupon for 20% off the total purchase. Well guess what? They are normally $12.99 but they are on sale until Saturday for $9.09 a piece. You can find them online at Jo-Ann but you will have to pay shipping. If they are not marked on sale in the store don't worry they are! The coupon is only for instore. I purchased them for $7.27 a piece and you can too if you get the ad mailed to your home.

If you haven't signed up for JoAnn coupons you should at a store most of the coupons are redeemable on-line. Save money on supplies! They even have an iPad app at JoAnn App

DS Quilts collections are available from Jo-Ann Stores in the USA.

Backyard Baby, Kona Solids, and Show and Tell

I just love the Backyard Baby fabric line by designer Patty Sloniger. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it for David Platt's Quilt, born January 31, 2012 to our family. But when it arrived I did not want to cut it because I was AFRAID. Have you ever had that happen? I needed a pattern or something to make sure I didn't mess up. I looked at it for days planning. What to do and how to do it.

I had a visual of what I wanted, but not how I would lay it out. So this is what I did. Do you like it? I have to take it to my friend, Irene, to quilt it for me. Why? Because I don't know how YET.



I love it! Hope you do to. During the creative process, I found Kona Solid fabrics by Robert Kaufman, the fabrics are vibrant, have that designer feel and looks beautiful with any print. It is sold all over the internet and at Jo-Ann's. I am so happy, because surprise I am a coupon cutter, so Jo-ann's is one of my favorite places to shop with a 40% off coupon. Yipee!

So now…
