A Fun Surprise for Me!

30 11 2015

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.

Trunk Show Prizes

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 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:

Fibs & Fables Bundle

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!

Grey Cat Quilts

It’s gorgeous fabric – I’m resisting the urge to design something just for the line. I have a lot of projects in the queue that need to be done first!
