I participated in the Trunk Full of Quilts digital trunk show/link-up, hosted by Soma of Whims and Fancies. Soma was generous enough to line up some prize packages for participants, and I won!
It’s so rare that I even try to win any give-aways on quilt blogs, that it was a huge, and very pleasant, surprise.
The prize package included several goodies, including this box of Aurifil thread, and a voucher for a free Craftsy class.
I picked Mimi Dietrich’s Hand Applique course for my free class. I love the look of hand applique, but want to improve my technique before embarking on a project that’s long been on my wishlist: Erin Russek’s My Tweets.
In addition to these goodies, my choice of several digital patterns were included. I picked:
- The Four Flowers of the United Kingdom paper-piecing patterns, by Soma of Whims and Fancies.
- The Pi Quilt by Meadow Mist Designs
- Snap, Crackle, Pop! by Cooking Up Quilts
- Floating by Cooking Up Quilts
The final piece of the prize package was a $24 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop. I almost jumped the gun and bought some random yardage, but then I remembered that Black Friday is a thing, and I did my sole bit of Black Friday shopping:
Yes, that’s a half quarter bundle of the Fibs & Fables by Anna Maria Horner. I finally drank the Anna Maria Horner Kool-Aid. I blame the Helios yardage. It’s my favorite print from the line, though I do like the rest of it – the exception being the Plaited print. It’s the one print in the entire line that I don’t anticipate using.
It was thrilling to win, and I’m so grateful to Soma for hosting the Trunk show, and to all the shops and pattern designers for sponsoring the event!
