Chicken dinner?

Not quite. Honestly, though, I’ll take the goodies I recently won over a chicken dinner any time! I mean, it’s free quilt-y stuff!

Way back on June 26, I tripped over a giveaway for quilting stencils at Karen’s Quilting. She was giving away a handful of $10.00 gift certificates to The Stencil Company. I was lucky enough to win, and I finally placed my order this evening:

Quilting  Stencils1. HW-136_large – Triangular Trick 5 Inches, 2. SCL-130_large – Egg and Dart 8 Inches, 3. Continuous Teardrops

Design 1 is for The Farmer’s Wife Sampler. I wanted something for the points of the stars in the top. Design 2 is for a Double Wedding Ring. I wanted a design that would allow me to use two colors of thread with little hassle. Design 3 just pretty. In picking all three designs, I was looking  for continuous line designs that wouldn’t make me want to throw my sewing machine out the window when I try doing them in FMQ. I see a lot of practice with FMQ in my future, though is it still FMQ if you’re following a stencil?

Quick Curve Ruler
I won the ruler and pattern from a give-away at Sew Kind of Wonderful.

I’ve been quietly obsessing over this ruler since seeing Jenny’s Urban Nine Patch Tutorial and Urban Deco Tutorial. I’m very much looking forward to playing with this ruler. A few ideas are already clamoring for attention. (Big surprise, right?)

The ruler looks like a lot of fun! The blocks I’ve seen using this ruler are super pretty.
